The Sea of Monsters — Rick Riordan

44187

The Bermuda Triangle, or also known as the Devil’s Triangle, is an area in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, where a number of aircraft and vessels are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances.

If only people would read The Sea of Monsters, they would know. *LOL*

Rick Riordan shrewdly fabricated once again a brilliant incorporation of the modern world and mythology. Percy Jackson has embarked on a journey towards the Sea of Monsters to save Grover and recover the Golden Fleece from the evil Cyclops, Polyphemus. But venturing towards the monsters’ abode isn’t as easy as it seems. Sirens, a flesh-eating sheep, and a whole mob of horrible and grotesque beasts are in pursuit for them. An appealing adventure, isn’t it?

I did enjoy this. It was undeniably delectable and had a gratifying aftertaste. In retrospect, it was a modern-day version of the classic Argonauts-and-their-quest-for-the-Golden-Fleece tale. What I liked best about this book series is how Rick Riordan formulated a contemporary fashion over the seemingly tedious folklore. No wonder kids like it that much and readers, like me, tend to ingest the details more effectively rather than learning it in school bounds. Perhaps I better ask Mr. Riordan to teach me?

Overall, a cleverly written sequel to that of The Lightning Thief. However, I didn’t love it parallel to that of the first book. I guess the blame has to be on me since I get caught up with the sleep-inducing sirens. Kidding.
