Amazing performance and great story as expected of Rick Riordan. Was laughing, crying, and enjoying it to the very end

What did you like most about The Blood of Olympus?
okay I'm not the traditional audience for Rick Riordan's books, I'm an adult who just happens to read a lot, and has a soft spot for fantasy and mythology.
The Percy Jackson series got me hooked, and this series has continued to keep me interested enough to pre-order book five. I'm saying nothing about the story itself because I don't like spoilers, but from the previous four books you just know it's gonna be good.
Who was your favorite character and why?
too many to choose from, Riordan writes some really good characters.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
don't make a film of any more Rick Riordan books, the disaster that was lightning thief was enough to put me off watching any more!!
Any additional comments?
The mythologies are accurate, for kids who don't know their greek and roman mythology (and egyptian with the kane chronicles), these are a fun introduction to them.

Would you listen to The Blood of Olympus again? Why?
I re-read books I love over and over again and this makes the cut. It's a rare book that can educate and entertain you at the same time and Rick Riordan's imagination is just a pleasure to listen to.
What other book might you compare The Blood of Olympus to, and why?
I hate comparing books as every Author deserves recognition in their own right. So I'll compare this to Rick Riordan's other books and say that it more than measures up. It's not anyone who can write a long series and produce books that are of the same standard throughout. The only other two Authors that spring to mind are JK Rowling and Michael Buckley.
What about Nick Chamian’s performance did you like?
He's not the best reader, particularly when compared with Joshua Swanson who read the earlier books in this series, but I find the voices he does amusing. It says a lot for this book that it carry's itself no matter who reads it.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I almost managed it. If I hadn't had to stop for small necessities like eating and sleeping I would have.
Any additional comments?
I'm assuming anyone picking up this book is already familiar with the world of Greek Gods and their half-blood offspring that Rick Riordan portrays so brilliantly. I've always loved Greek Mythology which was what initially drew me to his books. I fell in love with the Percy Jackson series for their humour and vivid descriptions, and this was increased ten fold in the Heros of Olympus series. The characters are just so life-like and colourful that you'll never forget them. As with all Rick Riordan's books, I was gripped throughout, and I only hope he isn't done with either this world or these characters.
