Hey bloggy buds,
Well, I didn't plan on doing PJ, but I'm not halfway through any other book at present, so I'm doing this one.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief
I mentioned this yesterday, I think, but I hate plot-driven books. They get on my nerves. I like a book with an active character. Yes, I understand, certain things have to be plot-driven, but I think a lot of it should be done by Percy. And I'm just not seeing it.
PJ seems to be doing stupid things and getting on my nerves. Besides for accepting everything and taking it all in stride (something I noticed in Tyger, Tyger, too), he's acting dumb. Someone died early on and now, without a second thought, Percy has decided he's going to go to the Underworld and rescue this dead character. Never mind that they're dead, he wants them out. Very irritating.
Yeah, I get it, he's upset and 12, but think. Plus, I feel like he's going about things the wrong way.
But I do like the basic idea. Rick Riordan is brilliant, but he could put it together better.
So far, 3*
