Another book another quest

The Battle of the Labyrinth - Rick Riordan

Yes. The fourth book for the Percy Jackson adventure. 

 

There is a threat. The bad guys are after Percy. He went back to the half blood camp and the new quest is formulated and begin the next adventure. 

 

It is a bit formulated. But then this is for young children who lives are separated into intervals between schools and summer holidays. 

 

So it is more suitable for them. As adults do like simple thing that is predictable yet with a bit of good storytelling. So this is just good for a fast read. 

 

This is the 4th and I got the 5th and final one already in the series. 

 

Start with a 4 stars first as I'm only 40% into the book. 

 

70% finished.

 

And the part that Percy discovered his power is kind of cool.

 

The part he got some romantic idea is not so good. Percy sound so clueless when it comes to having feeling for a person that is beyond friendship. This is just not convincing. 

 

Or is it too long ago that I forgot how teenagers act.

 

One, Annabelle kiss him. 

Two. Another girl kiss him on the forehead.

 

And Percy has "no reaction". Not like "oh my gosh it feel weird to be kissed"? 

Percy reaction is, stand there and not able to move. But more important thing comes along and he has to do that other thing.

 

No. 

 

Seriously. I would except that he talks about it or at least try to find the chance to talk about this with the kiss planner first.
