Percy Jackson: The Last Olympian Book Review

Untitled3-1

Hello,

today it’s a bittersweet day. I bring you my final review on the Percy Jackson series. I feel happy with a smile on my face but i want more Percy! (At least i have The Heroes of Olympus next, though it isn’t all published in Portuguese, only the first 2 books, and since i’m reading in Portuguese i will continue it on Portuguese)

All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of a victory are grim. Kronos’s army is stronger than ever, and with every god and half-blood he recruits, the evil Titan’s power only grows.

While the Olympians struggle to contain the rampaging monster Typhon, Kronos begins his advance on New York City, where Mount Olympus stands virtually unguarded. Now it’s up to Percy Jackson and an army of young demigods to stop the Lord of Time.

In this momentous final book in the New York Times best-selling series, the long-awaited prophecy surrounding Percy’s sixteenth birthday unfolds. And as the battle for Western civilization rages on the streets of Manhattan, Percy faces a terrifying suspicion that he may be fighting against his own fate.

I can’t believe i really finished it. I’m in love with the series. Truly truly a great ending.
Everything about this series is great for a younger audience but also great for an adult one. Of course, the jokes and every thing isn’t a adult humor. But the adventure is so much fun. And don’t let yourself judge it by the age group. There are some details kid’s wouldn’t pick up. That is the thing i love the most, the mystery.Romance wise, it’s great for someone who like me doesn’t enjoy heavy romances, it’s very subtle.

Without spoiling it, if you are someone who enjoys a well written adventure,  with a great main character and even better side kicks you will for sure enjoy this series. Do me a favor and give it a chance.

5 out of 5!

5-stars

Next a full review.

This book is a roller coaster, we have action from the first page to the last one.
I loved the new prophesy in the end, it leaves us with hope and all this adrenaline.

Pre-War: This was a short part, but still, i think its important to build the climax of the series. Everyone is afraid and then a really important person dies right in the start. Can you imagine what that does to your confidence? Poor Silena. I was always thinking of whom would be the spy and i always thought it was Annabeth, not on purpose, but she had a gift from Luke and Taliha had a silver thing with her too. I still think what are the consequences of Percy diving in the Estige.

War: Well, amazing sequence over all. Fasted paced, with glimpses of the past. I enjoyed knowing more about everything else. Why Hades hated everyone and how everything evolving Luke started.
The war it self was quite ”wary” with all the strategic spots and terms. So much thing i can’t actually comment on every detail.
Then we have the final battle. I always said Luke would have a big part. I still think Annabeth is the one with the power to change it. She was the one who called Luke. The one who made him see he had to wake up. Percy of course made the decision to trust (like he said) in the person he knows is the smartest, Annabeth. This is what friendship is, understanding your weak points and trusting your friends.
Of course Cronos had to die in the hands of a demigod. That is Karma for you! I just missed the good old Cronos is big, he is the big monster!
Well, at least Percy killed all of the titans and even Clarisse killed a drakon! I love this action sequences.
I love the end, but it wasn’t the action of before, but i still felt the rush to read it because i was really enjoying it.

Pos-War: This was the thing everyone wanted from the first book. Giving Percy and the other Demigods their rights and what they really deserve. Percy did what he wanted in his heart, great example. This series made me laugh so much. I’m going to miss this.

Let’s end this on the great note.
