These stories add almost nothing to the Percy Jackson saga. They seem to be chapters that were cut out of the final draft -- who knows. The individual stories are good -- very much like what you would expect of Percy and his pals. I was so glad that Jesse Bernstein was the reader. If it had been Joshua Swanson, the reader who is murdering the Heroes of Olympus series, I would not have touched it. I have to admit, Bernstein was hard to get used to -- but now, I could not imagine Percy Jackson with any other voice. I bought this audiobook to fill the LONG wait I am experiencing between Riordan's books. I know he is turning out a book a month (or so it seems). It is just that he is leaving these series, like the Heroes of Olympus, unfinished. How long are we supposed to wait? While we are waiting for Percy and Jason to team up against the bad guys, this is a good filler.

Would you be willing to try another book from Rick Riordan? Why or why not?
I have listened to every Rick Riordan YA book on Audible. Percy Jackson Series narrated by Jesse Bernstein and the Kane Chronicles series narrated by Kathrine Kellgren and Kevin R. Free are the best! Though I love the Lost Hero series I'm not as thrilled with the other narrators.
Was Percy Jackson & The Olympians worth the listening time?
Yes, if only for the story of how Bob the Titan is created. If you have read or listened to House of Hades you will know what I am talking about. This is not a spoiler!! It just helps connect you with one of the HoH characters that otherwise seemed to come from nowhere.
Any additional comments?
The short stories were good but the live interviews in The Demigod Files were not engaging for my kids (12 & 8).
