It seems every country has a different cover for the book. The American book cover version has hints about the story, its good to be able to glance at the cover as you read the book. What is good this book has a good ending but also takes you into the 2nd part of the Percy Jackson series. I really like this book, for one reason it does take place on Long Island (NY). I have driven out to Montauk. There are many places where the strawberry field can be as well as Camp Half Blood. There are places on Long Island where you can stand up to view the Long Island Sound and even hear it roar. Is it a place only visible to the demi gods?
I didnt pay much attention to mythology when I was a student in school. I think this would be a great book to have students read as they study mythology either it be in middle school, high school or even college.
This is book 1 of Percy Jackson and the Olympians with the movie to be released on February 12th. Does Percy get a quest? Who is the cause of the quest? Who are is traveling companions?
Enjoy the book, it is refreshing, to read a book that I can recommend to students without having to give them a warning if there are parts not suitable for them to read. Read the book and enjoy the movie.
