the mark of athena

i bought the mark of athena weeks back because i absolutely love rick riordan and the whole percy jackson book series… and it’s the best one yet. i’ve always been interested in greek mythology but in the books the myths become a mix of the old and the new… think nymphs with iphones, dionysus chugging diet coke, monsters stuck in chinese handcuffs, and even giants doing ballet. hahaha!

it’s one of those books that will make you laugh like an idiot then a few paragraphs later, you’d have to fight back tears. (assuming that you don’t live under a rock and that you know the characters let me tell you that…) i was thrilled when annabeth and percy were finally reunited and that they were able to retrieve the athena parthenos and all the witty banter from the characters. however, the book will not make you sleep though, meaning it’s really hard to put down plus there’s this major heart wrenching cliffhanger by the end. yes, rick riordan, kind sir, this is all your fault.

it’s going to be one more year before the next book comes out which adds to the emotional pain but it would be really nice to see leo with a girlfriend; annabeth and percy driving around tartarus, cause there were a few cars that fell in to the pit; and hopefully the greek and roman camps don’t destroy one another. okay so now… we wait.

yun lang.
