Jun 04, Dianne rated it really liked it Shelves: After a wonderful forward by Mr. Riordan, various writers take their turn writing essays in their own unique style. You will NOT find a collection of Rick Riordan tales, but it is an interesting work that can be read in short spurts, one Essay at a time.
Will you learn everything you always wanted to know about mythology and Percy? If you have a curious mind, this could prove very entertaining, one bite at a time. For younger Percy devotees, this is a great way to show them how to look beyond the series!
Expected Publication Date: July 2, Publisher: So I finally finished it and honestly I thought it was boring. Well, I did finish this book. I dragged my ass and skimmed through the second half. This book is a collection of essays from other authors about PJO series. It wasn't THAT bad, really.
In fact, I learned cool stuff about Greek mythology through this book and I found some parts to be really funny. But I thought the Greek mythology sorta backfired and it started to get very tedious reading about all of them it was impossible for me NOT to skim. I doubt younger readers would find this fascinating enough Thank you Smart Pop Books and Netgalley for sending me the galley, this doesn't affect my opinions at all. View 2 comments.

This is really a collection of essays by other young adult authors discussing various aspects of the setting and writing and deriving lessons and discussion topics for young adults.
There is no additional fleshing out of the setting through stories or fiction. Not all of the descriptions of this book make it clear and it was especially hard to get to the truth of the content from the site description.
Some of the essays were interesti The product description is purposefully a touch misleading.
Some of the essays were interesting, like the Artemis one, so I didn't give it 1-star but it isn't worth the amount it costs certainly. Feb 12, Amanda rated it it was ok Shelves: I found the author's introduction endearing, how he created Percy Jackson in order to validate his second grader's ADHD and dyslexia-- that they had divine origins. This section is one I think I will use in further teaching, it explains how and why myths are inherent to our society and the relationships between authors and their own texts as well as the ones they analyze.
Ok, so that was about the best part of any of the essays. I did find the glossary of mythological people and places a useful I found the author's introduction endearing, how he created Percy Jackson in order to validate his second grader's ADHD and dyslexia-- that they had divine origins. I did find the glossary of mythological people and places a useful refresher course. I have to say that I really didn't like this book at all.
It took me a little bit to read. I kept skipping parts because they weren't interesting at all. My favorite part was the glossary at the end, explaining all the greek gods, heroes and etc Basically this book is other authors writing pieces about the Percy Jackson series. It really wasn't interesting at all only a couple were okay. I don't suggest reading this, but if you want to try reading it you can go right ahead.

A series of essays about the Percy Jackson series from various YA authors. As always with essay collections, some were better than others. Some others read like middle school language arts papers. Good but not great. Fun for fans.
Fascinating and incisive look at various issues and motifs permeating this wonderful series and what they tell us about ourselves and our society.. Jan 08, Koen Plasmans rated it did not like it. This book did not add any original content. Just a rehash of the already mediocre books but from another point of view. I was quite disappointed. This collection of essays about the series is really thought-provoking. I loved it. Jul 06, Charlotte rated it really liked it Shelves: For the complete review, kindly drop by my blog at: Thoughts and Pens Demigods and Monsters is a compilation of comprehensive essays about anything related to the world Percy Jackson and the Olympians series.
And guess what? Rick Riordan himself wrote the introduction. That was just WOW. I really appreciated what Rick wrote in the Intro that it served as my fire of inspiration to read through the whole book. But this has totally changed my whole perspective of reading essays and of looking at books on a general note. From now on, I am most certain that I will look at books at a different level. And then finally, putting it into writing.
The essays that have been featured in this book cover the following: Instead, I was treated to amusing reminisces of the PJ scenes that I love and provided me with equally hilarious new stuff to think about.
Would I recommend this book? This book is a perfect enlightenment for those who want to look closer, to imagine beyond the realms of what was written in the pages. Here is the summary of the book: Sea of Monsters, this new edition is updated through The Last Olympian, and includes several brand new essays!

Also - I would absolutely love to see Percy and the gang in Central America. Take note, Rick! Overall, this was entirely enjoyable and well thought out set of essays, and if they were updated to included essays about information with Heroes of Olympus, I'd be totally willing to download both.

Jul 16, Jo rated it liked it. Review This is a must read for Percy Jackson fans, It provides hidden insights in a collection of essays, that true fans of Percy Jackson will learn more about Their favorite hero, the series and its power.
This book is not for everyone, Riordan fans who are looking for the next thrilling book telling of Percy's adventure will be sorely disappointed as this is a collection of insights and facts put together in an interesting narrative that only true fans will enjoy. Personally, I found it very interesting, Jul 09, Eustacia Tan rated it it was amazing Shelves: I admittedly have a very on-off relationship with the Percy Jackson series.
I probably saw The Lightning Thief in a Popular bookstore a long long time ago. Unfortunately, the only thing I remembered was a tagline that went something like "half-boy, half-god, all hero". How I managed to find the series again is something I still don't understand. And when I finally read the first book, well I loved it! But then, left the series alone I don't actually own any of the books - I think my sister has o I admittedly have a very on-off relationship with the Percy Jackson series.
But then, left the series alone I don't actually own any of the books - I think my sister has one as a present though, I remember reading it. It seems like if I can get my hands on a copy, I read it and enjoy myself immensely, but if I can't, well, life goes on. But I do know what the series is about - and I think that this companion book is perfect not just for fans, but for anyone interested in Greek Mythology.
I might have gone on a myth-reading kick in Secondary School, but this book still managed to give out a lot of interesting things that I didn't know off. Including Mayan Mythology - that sounds really interesting yes, it appears, but I won't tell you why ; At the end of the book is an A-Z guide to the different characters in Greek Myth not just the Percy Jackson series. Personally, I found it very interesting, but it's something that you should read in small bites, not in one go.
This review is more of me and my relationship to the Percy Jackson series. Anyway, I really like this book, and I heartily recommend it. I got a free copy of this book from the publishers via NetGalley in exchange for a free and honest review. This review was first posted to Inside the mind of a Bibliophile Jul 06, Cheryl M-M rated it really liked it. Not by Rick Riordan, but about his books.
Just thought I would mention that as it seems that some readers are downloading this based on the premise that it is a new Riordan book. A collection of thoughts and essays by other authors on books written by Riordan. On a side note I loved the introduction to the book, but have decided to take my chances even if it means getting shot. I actually had never heard of Riordan or his books until I saw the film version of Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. Perso Not by Rick Riordan, but about his books.
Personally I think it is of the most underrated kids movies I have seen. The film enticed me to look up the books and since then I have introduced the reading material to my children. The essays seem to focus more on the Greek mythology, which is the core subject in the books. It would have been nice to see a more in depth approach to the characters or plots in the same humorous way. What does become evident is how many people or fellow scribes enjoy the product of his imagination.
This book is what I would call an add-on or oddity in a collection and perhaps more interesting to a fan or a reader who would like to know a little bit more about what makes the Riordan books tick.
I recieved a free copy of this book via NetGalley. Jun 21, Natalie Monroe rated it liked it Shelves: ARC received through Netgalley Here's a little note to those of you about to pick up this: This book is comprised of essays analyzing Percy Jackson and the mythology within it.
As a college student, I have slaved over similar essays and can appreciate the hard work these authors have put it in order to write those essays.
But frankly, the highlight of book was Rick Riordan's introduction.
Don't get me wrong, a couple of t ARC received through Netgalley Here's a little note to those of you about to pick up this: This title includes a glossary of ancient Greek myth, with plenty of information on the places, monsters, gods, and heroes that appear in the series.
