THE LAST OLYMPIAN REVIEW

Standard
     Here’s another review of the Percy Jackson series. The last and most epic book before the Heroes of Olympus series:
The grand finale. The biggest book of the series. And it happens to be my favorite. The Last Olympian is an epic last battle between Camp-Half Blood and Kronos. The greatness of this tale is too long to place in one review but I like that the battles were much bigger. From the first book, fighting a god was the biggest point but in this book Percy was fighting titans, large armies, demigods, and Kronos himself. Thankfully, with the help of Nico’s plan, which was to bathe in the River Styx and be…more The grand finale. The biggest book of the series. And it happens to be my favorite. The Last Olympian is an epic last battle between Camp-Half Blood and Kronos. The greatness of this tale is too long to place in one review but I like that the battles were much bigger. From the first book, fighting a god was the biggest point but in this book Percy was fighting titans, large armies, demigods, and Kronos himself. Thankfully, with the help of Nico’s plan, which was to bathe in the River Styx and become invincible, he was able to deal with the challenges. The amazing part of the story was that you see fully the background of each character from Luke to Hades to even Ethan Nakamura that change the traditions of Camp-Half Blood forever. You start to feel sympathy for the characters where you felt none or just a little before. I like the fact that when everything seems to be hopeless, especially after finally reading the Great Prophecy that have Percy in the bunches, things find a way to work things out. I also like the fact that the book wasn’t an end but a beginning to a new tale. And the fact that there’s a new Great Prophecy to deal with. All in all, I recommend you read it.

MULTIPLE NARRATION

Standard
     A notable writing technique that is being used is the use of multiple characters narrating a story. A lot of people don’t like the technique because it makes the story confusing. Well, I’m not one of those people. I like the technique, I use the technique, and in the future I will continue using the technique. Now I can sympathize with those who hate the technique because you can trip quite easily in doing so, but if used properly it can be a nice change in pace. Of course you can write in the third person but sometimes you want your characters to be personal. Needless to say some authors manage to pull it off: Rick Riordan and James Patterson for example. Their best sellers The Heroes of Olympus series and the Maximum Ride series uses such a technique. It can be understood, a main character can’t tell you everything or that other characters’ role is so big that it can’t be ignored. Why do I use it? Because none of my main characters stick out. They all have important parts to the tale. Look some of you may not like it for some reason. Rather you like a singular narrator because of the mystery it induces that the main character will eventually figure it out or that it is just simple and less confusing, but give it try. It’s not that bad and a lot of great stories have spawned from using this style. It helps to be open minded.

My OCD is acting up

It pours my blood into a cup

A by-product of my ADD

That makes it hard to get through ABCD

 

Thoughts and obsessions that are not my own

It strikes me right to the bone

Even when I try to quit

It brings me back bit by bit

 

As time passes I age

And yet my body is still a cage

I’m not that old

And yet to be rid of it I must be bold

 

It leaves me gasping for air

Well, that’s just not fair

Please tell me not so

And so that it may go

COLORS: PINK

Standard

Pink: the color of gayety, the color of happiness, cuteness, or just the color linked to girls. For a guy, pink is as lethal as gun. They are often ridiculed for just even being near such a color. But pink is just a color and should be treated as such. It has many interpretations. Well, girls and boys, what do you think of the color pink?

THE BATTLE OF THE LABYRINTH REVIEW

Standard
     Hello bloggers, welcome to another one of my Percy Jackson book reviews:
     The Battle of the Labyrinth is little more of a side quest of the series but it’s very important to the tale and an epic book. Percy and friends must venture into the Labyrinth built by the legendary Daedalus in order to stop Kronos from destroying Camp-Half Blood from the inside. This tale is very interesting in the fact that it continues complicating the relationship of Percy and Annabeth this time from the appearance of Rachel Dare, a mortal that can seen through the Mist whom Percy met in the last book, and the fact that Luke is now Kronos. A special tidbit of this book is that it is Annabeth’s quest and we don’t hear all of her prophecy until the end due to her keeping it a secret. Another adventure is the reappearance of Nico Di Angelo, the brother of Bianca and son of Hades, who is dealing with the ghost of King Minos, cruel king of Crete who is hunting for Daedalus. Nico makes the story difficult by being a child of the Big Three, Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades, and could have a part of the Big Prophecy that surrounds the tale but he doesn’t have a side and is resentful of Percy for letting his sister die. Another big revelation was that Grover finally manages to find the nature god Pan as he is fading due to the dying of his sphere of control. Pan provided a good lesson of protecting nature for yourself and not praying a god would do it. Unfortunately, when Grover spreads this message, he gets ostracized. This book is great with the cliffhangers which makes the readers yearn for more, especially at the end when Nico tells Percy he might’ve find out the way to beat Kronos before Percy invites him in for cake.
