[Rick Riordan] ↠´ The Lost Hero [modern PDF] Read Online ò Re read in 2017 so I can FINALLY finish the rest of the series original Review THAT ENDING WAS SOOO GOOD I NEED THE NEXT BOOK ASAP PLEASE AND THANK YOU.
Probably SPOILER ALERT, but nothing you couldn t have figured out in the first few pages.
According to Goodreads, 97% of people liked it But the 3% will rise Prepare yourself for the first yet negative review of this book.
I was so excited for this book to come out But then I read it, and was very disappointed Just to clarify, I LOVED the original Percy Jackson series They were amazing This, however, was not.
The characters were all Sues 1 Piper s perfection I M SO BEAUTIFUL BUT I MUST HIDE IT BECAUSE IT S EMBARASSING SO I M GOING TO GO CUT MY HAIR WITH SAFETY SCISSORS NOW BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAW She doesn t need to wear makeup or nice clothes to be beautiful, because being a daughter of Aphrodite gets you everything except self confidence She is very speshul because 1 her eyes change color cliche What NO and 2 she has the VERY RARE gift of charmspeak.
2 And then there was Jason, Piper s love interest Which they were very, very subtle about I never saw a connection between them It seemed like she thought that she should be attracted to him, so she was.
3 Leo It s too bad, I kind of liked him But then he got the VERY RARE gift of creating fire from nothing and I laughed.
Also, I quickly got sick of the simple writing style Point of view changes definitely didn t add to the story AT ALL The quality of writing has plummeted, maybe because Riordan is just plain better at writing in first person The part at the end where Jason view spoiler doesn t die even though ANYONE ELSE would, because he s SPESHUL hide spoiler EDIT So, uh, I was kind of maybe extremely delirious when I originally wrote this, but I find it kind of awkward entertaining, and since so many people have liked it, I guess I ll leave it up THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS If you were lame enough to click the show button even though the Goodreads thing automatically says spoilers um, no offense , STOP READING THIS REVIEW RIGHT NOW.
Well Now that that s settledKJSNFGHLJKEHNRJLKG AWRKLG AJKREG KLAWR JW4HT JRKGWA AEIOPRU35JY AE GJKR AJ GROIT JAE GKLAJWRIT JWROGIJW OAGI Rick Riordan is alternately brilliant and cruel HOW, I ask you, can he come up with a plot this crazily insane in an awesome way , yet end the book with the WORST CLIFFHANGER IN ALL OF LITERARY HISTORY Okay, maybe that s a bit of a stretch I d say the worst best cliffy in maybe the last century Yeah, that s it.
AAAAAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH I SWEAR TO GODS, PERCY, YOU HAD BETTER GET YOUR MEMORY AND GET YOUR SORRY HIDE BACK TO NEW YORK OR I WILL FIND A WAY TO GET INSIDE THE BOOK AND KILL YOU.
Also, I just had a terrible, horrible, ugly, bad, horrendous, repulsive, monstrous idea.
So, at the end of the book, when Jason remembers all that stuff about the Roman camp, he remembers the names of all his friends Then he remembers this girl and gets kind of uncomfortable because he can t remember what his relationship was with her meaning, they definitely liked each other but now he can t remember her, and now he likes Piper which I find adorable, by the way , so if he goes back, there s going to be some serious girl drama.
But actually, the drama isn t my point My point is Jason forgot everything, including who his friends were and who he had a crush on whether it be unrequited or tiny and if Percy s hanging at that Roman camp in the Neptune cabin, there s a 99.
9999999% chance that he s just like Jason and can t remember anything about CHB or anything else, either since Annabeth is always right, and all.
So does that mean he likes SOMEONE ELSE throws tantrum LKJEFKJWE JKERGA ERJGPOAREJ OAREKJG AWOERJ AEOROJG AOER GAOERJOJSHRG ERGKAREKJL That is all For now.
B 79% Good NotesIt treats memory as the primordial stew of personality a precious, bubbling cistern of affection, anguish and intrigue.
Well, I finished re reading all the Percy Jackson the Olympians books, so now I m attempting to re read all the Heroes of Olympus books as well mostly because I wanted to refresh my memory before The Blood of Olympus comes out After that, no Percy Jackson sobs So yeah, I ve now finished re reading this one which was a good idea, because as I read it I realized I d forgotten like 99% of what happened in it I also think I liked it a lot better reading it the second time, probably because I m familiar with the characters now The first time I read it, I think I was a little distracted being like, but WHERE S PERCY JACKSON Reading it again and knowing there was no Percy in it, I think I was a bit invested in the characters I still am not a huge fan of Jason or Piper, but LEOOOOO GAHHH I love Leo so much Apparently the first time I read this book I really liked Piper But I don t know, the second time around I didn t like her much Huh Well anyway, I ll write a new longer review at some point Old crappy review under the spoiler view spoiler Old review 11 13 10 I will come up with an epic review for this soon But now I need to do the homework I neglected while I was reading it teehee I find it amusing that this is my 2nd most popular review and that I haven t even reviewed it yet Oops, I read it almost half a year ago, so I should probably get on that headsmack AN ETERNITY LATER Well, I was sad that I had nothing to review, but then I remembered that I never reviewed this and had been meaning to do so for ages I should be reading the 7th Harry Potter book so I can review that but, I don t feel like reading right now And I might as well get this dang thing over with Gosh darn it.
Okay, so, here s the deal I read this book in November It s June now It s been seven months since I read this, so I don t really remember it in detail Hence, this review will probably totally suck because I am having trouble recalling all the things that happened in this book I m sure I took a lot of mental notes, and I bet I was planning some big, epic review and then I just didn t want to write it because it was going to be long and time consuming to write, and yada yada So, here we are Yet, oddly enough, of all my reviews this is the one with the second most amount of votes Which is rather sad since I sometimes spend like 3 hours writing a review for something and then it gets no votes Sobs All right, all right Enough of my pity party.
So Rick Riordan RICK RIORDAN I love him And I hate him He is so wonderful, but so evil I find this to be true of most of my favorite authors.
Anyway, Mr Riordan has a lot of skill He creatively ties mythology into reality, and his characters are developed well His writing isn t the best thing ever, but at least it s funny I love love loved the Percy Jackson books It s one of my very favorite series And I enjoyed the first Kane Chronicles book as well although not as much as Percy Jackson Aaaand same goes for The Lost Hero I loved it, but not as much as the series from which it originated I thought it was a better book, but I don t know I guess I have of a sentimental attachment to Percy Jackson, since I was part of the whole hype from when I was 12 until I was 16 when the last book came out So, it s a little hard to let go of that attachment and be like, I MISS PERCY But, oh well.
So yeah, this book I guess I m a little late writing this review, as I ve already implied I don t know if I should really bother going into detail.
Well I liked that Annabeth was in it That made me happy But I MISS PERCY, DANG IT AND HE WASN T IN IT AT ALL IT MADE ME ANGRY But the other characters were pretty cool I loved Leo and Piper They both had cool backstories and were very likable Jason on the other hand, I didn t like very much He was just kinda ehhh The whole memory loss thing made him a bit hard to relate to, because without it he didn t really have a backstory and therefore didn t seem like much of a developed character He was just being kickass all the time and being like, I don t know why I m so kickass I just am YEAH Well, I hope he ll be a tad developed in the other books Aaand the plot, the plot was cool There were scary monsters and gods and stuff Hooray for mythology I liked how in this one, Rick Riordan addressed Roman mythology and how it relates to Greek mythology and how there s the Roman camp as well as the Greek one.
And then there was the ending The horrible ending view spoiler Percy Jackson lost his memory WONDERFUL JUST WONDERFUL Five books for nothing And herein lies the really annoying problem Because, you know, you read this and you re like, Jason and Piper should be a couple And then you realize that Jason had some other girlfriend at the Roman camp And then if you think of Percy who has Annabeth Except now he is at the Roman camp, and has forgotten everything as well And might have met someone else So, Jason s ex girlfriend is basically the Annabeth in this situation MAN, THIS SUCKS GAHHH BASHES HEAD THROUGH A WINDOW hide spoiler
An oath to keep with a final breath,And foes bear arms to the Doors of Death.
New prophecy New characters New adventure Same, EPIC world Meet our new demigods Jason, Piper and Leo.
Jason is the mystery in this trio, see he doesn t remember anything, not even who he is A God has stolen his memories.
Piper has a secret, a terrible one that will only cause pain and suffering, but what other choice does she have Leo, the comic relief of our group, is good at fixing stuff, now only if he can fix his past long enough to stop the running.
Each are intertwined through a destiny that has brought them to this moment in time.
A Quest The start of the new prophecy has begunTo be honest, I was a littleteeytinybit nervous that this book wasn t going to live up to my expectations Percy Jackson and his gang were quite the amazing characters and I wasn t sure I was willing to let them go while a bunch of new demigods took over.
Yeah, I don t know what the hell I was thinking Rick s the man, and he quickly put my mind at ease once I got this book in my hands I can t believe how much I ve missed this world.
I loved this book I don t care that I m a 34 year old mom of two I adore this whole series so much Rick is like, the male JKR, he has the most amazing imagination and it s penned in such a solid pace It s completely captivating that I just wanted to savor every single word of this 500 book and before I knew it, I was already done and craving.
There are so many colorful new characters, creatures and monsters to enjoy Reading this feels like my own little history lesson in mythology I loved there back stories, there unique talents, there choice of weapons and the magic of it all We even get to see some of our favorite familiar hero s, but sadly, some aren t here in this book, but hoping Rick will include them in the next.
I don t want to give anything away A lot of great and fun stuff happen in this book It s gripping, a little intense but still the fun and fantastic escape that I ve come to rely on, still lives in these pages.
Remarkable Remarkable stuff The Lost Hero is an incredible start to a brand new adventure Highly entertaining Highly recommended For all ages read this, it s made of pure awesomesauce
