“After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson finds his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson—a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any “normal” friends. But things don’t stay quiet for long…”


After reading the first book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, I was eager to move on to the next book in the series, The Sea of Monsters. I am very glad to say that I was extremely happy with my experience reading this book. It met all of the expectations that I had going into it.

I really like how it pretty much picked up right where The Lightning Thief had left off. I also loved how throughout the first few chapters of the book, it kind of gave us a recap of what had transpired in the first book.

I really liked how the author introduced the character of Tyson, Percy’s half brother who happens to be a cyclops. The way he is described in the first few chapters and then happens to become a major character is the middle and towards the end of the story just made me want to continue reading. I feel like he will have a major impact on the story going forward in the series.

In all, I really enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to move on to the next book in the series: The Titan’s Curse, and see what happens next!
