      I believe im not the only person that thinks that the Percy Jackson series is totally awesome And yes, I did enjoy this book The extra knowledge about the gods and the different authors take in the series was interesting But It seemed to me that the authors over anylized the series a bit too much They all claimed that rick riordan is a genious for coming up with these extravegent spelling plots and details, and of course, I do think Mr Riordan is a geneous, but not in the ways that they describe [...]

      This is an amazingly interesting collection of essays examining the creation of Rick Riordan s brilliant mind, the Percy Jackson series After a wonderful forward by Mr Riordan, various writers take their turn writing essays in their own unique style You ll find a touch of interesting wonderfacts, some humor and other perspectives on the phenomenon that is Percy Jackson 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 [...]

      Being a PJO HoO and Greek mythology fan, I felt that I would love this So I finally finished it and honestly I thought it was boring Sure there were essays that I liked such as Jenny Han s Eeny Meeny Miney Mo m Picking Your Very Own Godly Parent but I felt that reading this was like a chore or school homework I had to finish.Well, I did finish this book.HoweverI 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 TH [...]

      The heavier version of Percy Jackson s Greek Gods and Percy Jackson s Greek Heroes I love the way each author potray that Rick Riordan is a smart writer to make children with ADHD and dyslexia confident by having Percy Jackson as their heroes.Most of it is funny actually, I like Jenny Han s part and the rests are good enough.

    6. BJ on said:

      The product description is purposefully a touch misleading 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 kindle description Some of the essays were interesting, [...]

    7. Amanda on said:

      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 refre [...]

    8. Michael on said:

      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 lol

    9. Abby on said:

      A series of essays about the Percy Jackson series from various YA authors As always with essay collections, some were better than others I really liked Why So Many Monsters Go Into Retail and Percy, I am Your Father 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

      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 one as a p [...]

      Not by Rick Riordan, but about his books Just thought I would mention that as it seems that some readers are buying 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 Persona [...]

      ARC received through NetgalleyHere s a little note to those of you about to pick up this unless you are a huge, huge fan of Greek mythology, you will not enjoy 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 the e [...]

    19. Beckie on said:

      Ok, to be honest, I didn t even finish reading it The part that Rick Riordan wrote was great, and I made it through one essay after that, and that was all I could take I skimmed a few , and I just couldn t do it I am really not that interested in dissecting the Percy Jackson series everyone is going to take something different away from the readings anyway.The book is worth borrowing just to read the part that Mr Riordan wrote, though He tells all about how Percy came about, and it a heartwarmin [...]

    20. MissGeoffChaucer on said:

      An interesting read This book is composed of several essays written by other authors that give some additional insight into Greek mythology and the Percy Jackson series It also contains an extensive glossary at the end covering all things Greek mythology.I really enjoyed this It s not necessarily a must read, but I m the type of person that likes to really delve into a universe that I m enjoying These essays gave me some new things to think about, which was for me, at least a lot of fun

    21. Emily Sarah on said:

      I read this while waiting for my eReader to charge so I can get back to reading The Titan s Curse This is a behind the scenes look at everything PJ related It s like getting a sneak peek at Riordan s brain, which is oddly satisfying Definitely recommend to everyone who wants to know how and why Riordan did the things he did.Also, shoutout to my homeboy, Rick Riordan s son, who got his dad to write the series in the first place You re the real MVP, son.

    22. Amanda on said:

      It s a book of essays on a book series NOT EVEN GOOD ESSAYS One of the essay s says now I am to the point of this essay OMGS yes I am a dedicated Rick Riordan fan and I thought it would be kind of cool to read about what other published authors thought about the excelent series.

    23. Anto on said:

      ME ENCANTO EL AN LISIS DE CADA AUTOR SOBRE EL MUNDO DE PERCY, muy muy interesante No lean este libro si todav a no han terminado los primeros cinco de la saga Al final trae un glosario que shhhh no le porque ya se todas esas cosas ah bue experta JAJAJA no posta, se hace muy repetitivo

    24. Nesh on said:

      I liked it I suppose, but it was a bit dull A bit to much info and too little storytelling if you ask me.

    25. Victoria Pimentel on said:

      It was bit empty, lacked true content Not really enjoyable.

    26. Julia on said:

      There was a book that I was trying to track down that was part of the Percy Jackson universe that described the mythical animals that were found within the series, which I was hoping to find for my bf who was showing interest in the hippocampus Unfortunately I didn t remember what that book was but did find this one and thought that it would be a bit educational although on a different level It was educational but then again not the way that I would have preferred since the opinions expressed w [...]

      Okay, I am one of those people who sometimes grabs an Essays On book just to feel like I m interested in perceptions than in the fantasy and scifi books I am addicted to.This one, however I love how stunned Riordan is that there are themes and subtleties to his novels Which, actually, there are, but don t tell him that I did enjoy reading other people s reactions to one of my favourite series and many of them are just as thought provoking and sassy as the Percy Jackson series My favourite thing [...]
