    I love this book! It is both exciting and keeps you entertained so that you don’t I mean cannot but the book down! Its probably going to be in my 10 favorite books of this year! I love how when his scars are healing in the water how he is appologizing. You are being healed and you are saying sorry… What sense does that make?

    I am reading the 4the book- The battle of the labyrinth. The Labyrinth is a under ground maze that can take you across the country in just one day. In the book Percy, Annabeth(both halfbloods), Grover(Satyr, which is half man half goat), and Tyson(cyclopes), went from New york to alcatraz in 1 day.

    I am reading Book Four in the series. It is called The Battle of the Labyrinth. It is about Percy Jackson, a half-human, half-god boy who embarks on a quest to defeat his enemy Luke, who is slowly piecing together the ancient Time Lord Kronos. He uses a mythical passage called the Labyrinth, a never-ending maze invented by Daedalus, to reach his foe in an attempt to stop the Time Lord before he is fully revived.

    Since we must post two comments, wait, maybe that’s including the other assigned one from last semester, but, anyways, in case of incorrect interpretation, I am going to explain the Labyrinth from the book. It is a never-ending maze that is never the same. Time is distorted in the Labyrinth, so a few minutes in there can either be a few seconds or a few days once you come out. In the Labyrinth, you can find passages to giant battle arenas, dark pits of doom, a farm with red cows, and Daedalus’ workshop.

    Any Greek mythology expert reading the book would be well surprised with the historical accuracy Riordan uses in his Percy Jackson books. Many people know Zeus and Hera, but does anyone even remember Janus or Hestia? Overall, the mixture of ancient Greek and modern American cultures present in this book is just right.

    Also notice that, so far, my comments are the only 100% perfect comments, referring to grammar and spelling.

    Im reading The Battle of the Labyrinth. This book is amazing! I already know what happens cause ive read the book. In this series there are 5 books- 1.The Lightning Thief. 2. The Sea of Monster. 3. The Titans Curse. 4. The Battle of the labyrinth. 5. The Last Olympian. These are great books if your intrested in greek mythology, action, or adventure books.

  9. Mason Oswill — January 30, 2012 @ 10:20 am

    I am reading the 4th book. I am more than halfways through the book. This is a great book. Its adventureous, its a book you enjoy everytime you read it. In this book Percy, Annabeth, Tyson, and Grover are in the labyrinth searching for Nico de Angelo( son of Hades).

  10. Jonah Holland — January 30, 2012 @ 2:22 pm

    I forgot that I needed to publish this by Friday, sorry. Anyways, I am reading “The Lightning Thief” even though I’ve already read this book. It’s a really good book. What I’ve read so far Percy, the son of Poseidon and his mother are at the beach at their favorite cabin when this storm starts and Grover, a satyr that is also Percy’s best friend and secretly his guardian knocks at the door and says: “It’s right behind me!”…

  11. Seth Tcha — January 31, 2012 @ 6:51 am

    This book is good, but after you’ve read it three times its not very surprising or exciting. I would have picked a different book if I had to, but I’m still happy that I picked this to read.

  12. Seth Tcha — January 31, 2012 @ 6:57 am

    Percy,Annebeth, and Grover are finally in the Underworld and they are not really excited about meeting the lord of the dead in his own domain. They have one day before the summer solstice so if Percy doesn’t find the master bolt soon then the gods will have started World War III. Plenty is still to be found out. Like who is the friend who will betray Percy, how will Percy fail in his quest and will he be able to save his mother along with his two best friends?

    Book 4- The Battle of The Labyrinth!(:
    1.Sooooooo far, the book just keeps getting better and better…….. More wars, a lot of big words…..! I love it!!! (10 times better than Harry Potter.)…. This book also has a lot of jealousy in it……(:

    2. So far my favorite part is when Percy finally finds Nico De Angelo……. Nico actually began calling spirits to come…!!!! It was amazing…… Just by reciting a greek prophecy thing….. Biana (Nico’s sister) Came to explain, her death really WASN’T Percy’s fault….

  14. Caitlyn Atkinson — February 2, 2012 @ 9:48 am

    so it is getting really good really fast which makes me excited!!!

  15. Caitlyn Atkinson — February 2, 2012 @ 9:49 am

    I like that there is always something interesting happening in the book. there is never any boriing parts and those are the kinds of books i enjoy!!

  16. Caitlyn Atkinson — February 2, 2012 @ 9:51 am

    So i am almost finished with the book and they are finally in Hades realm! I did some research on hades realm and the helmet that makes him invivible. It was a very interesting and it was just like the book said it was!! I am excited to back to english to finally get to read it some more!!:)

  17. Seth tcha — February 3, 2012 @ 9:50 am

    Ceberus, a three headed rotweiller that is twice the size of a mammoth. After getting past Cerbecus they make thier way to the palace of Hades, the god of the underworld. Once they reach Hades they find that he did not have what they were looking for, but that they had it all along.

    I am reading Book four, battle of the labyrinth. It is a pretty good book.

  19. Tommy Morgan — February 3, 2012 @ 12:48 pm

    After being attacked by empousai cheerleaders at his new school, Percy returns to Camp Half-Blood and learns about the Labyrinth, a vast underground maze designed by Daedalus and originally part of the palace of Minos, king of Crete. He also meets the camp’s new sword master, Quintus. During a battle drill with giant scorpions at the camp, Annabeth and Percy accidentally find an entrance into the Labyrinth. Percy soon learns that Luke had used this entrance before and will try and lead his army through the Labyrinth straight into the heart of Camp Half-Blood.

    Will Percy be able to save Camp Half Blood?

  20. Mason Oswill — February 4, 2012 @ 11:16 am

    In the 4th book, Percy makes a volcanoe erupt andit destroys the city. Then he wakes up on a misterious island, and this girl takes care of him until hes ready to leave.

  21. Mason Oswill — February 4, 2012 @ 11:18 am

    Percy arives at half blood hill when he tells the raft to go there, after the island. He gets back and everybody thinks hes dead and he walks in on the camp burning his shroud.

Percy, the son of Poseidon and his mother are at the beach at their favorite cabin when this storm starts and Grover, a satyr that is also Percy’s best friend knocks at the door and says: “It’s right behind me!” Well Smelly Gabe’s car is… well it’s dead. Percy fights the Minotaur and is in Half-Blood Hill.

  24. Ashley Howard — February 8, 2012 @ 3:42 pm

    I totally love this book! I am totally into it. I can’t put it down. I read for an hour every night to see what happens next. Then my parents come and yell at me to go to bed… But I still LOVE this book! It’s very exciting. I recommend this to every one. Especially those who need a good series to read.

  25. Ashley Howard — February 8, 2012 @ 3:44 pm

    i am now at the part where he is going home to… Half-Blood hill. The question is will he stay for the year for training? or will he go home with his mom and go to ANOTHER boarding school? Find out what goes on in the second book!

  26. aliyah weaver — February 13, 2012 @ 9:47 am

  27. Mason Bowthorpe — October 6, 2014 @ 7:19 am

    If you don’t like the first one that’s cool. It isn’t as good as the others. It just has to introduce everyone. It gets so much better.
