10 y.o. boy became a READER with this book!

Any additional comments?

10 y.o. boy (ADD and dyslexic) started audio books as companions to hardcopy books (teacher recommendation) and it was a huge success. The Percy Jackson series absolutely turned him from "I hate reading" to a boy who is now told to "please put the book DOWN and EAT!!".

Mom: Loaded this book onto the iPad and played it on longer drives. VERY well presented, fascinating story, and has spawned a whole family interest in the series, and a small research project (for the kids) into greek myths.


Of the 5 Percy books, this is the one that turned a corner for our son. Family demanded we only listen to it TOGETHER, so Alex began reading the hardcopy on his own - sneaking it into bed with a flashlight. Happy, happy Mom!! Prior to this book, it was actually easier to pull teeth than get him to read (ask our dentist).

Jesse Berstein IS Percy Jackson

What made the experience of listening to The Last Olympian: Percy Jackson, Book 5 the most enjoyable?

In an audiobook, more than the story, the narrator has to tell it well.
In the old days, story tellers used to wander between villages with stories of Heroes and Gods.
They were legend. Their narration was SO good that it has followed us down the ages.
To me, Jesse Bernstein represents the very few of those dying breed. The other being Ray Porter.
He truly likes Percy Jackson and you could see the characters leaping off the book into your car.
Guido, Blackjack, Tyson, Annabeth and Hades: To me they are as real as the NY Subway or the traffic in Chennai.


What did you like best about this story?

The Narration. Duh !


Have you listened to any of Jesse Bernstein’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

ALL of his Percy Jackon books. Each one is extremely good.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Hades arrives to the Battle.

Audible: Please, Please use this narrator well. He's one of the very few Gifted ones. Listen to your customers.
