Blood of Olympus….disappointment

blood of olympusOkay, I love the Percy Jackson books as much as the next person, but is it just me, or was this book kind of a downer? I mean I have been obsessed with these books for ages, I have grown to love and admire Percy and Annabeth, and in the last story ever……..THEY DON’T EVEN GET THEIR OWN CHAPTERS. What I thought was really misleading was the fact that on the front cover it explicitly say’s ‘Percy Jackson’s Final Battle Begins’, but in the actual book it’s not really his battle at all because he’s more like a background character.

I mean yeah, it was a great book, it was funny and exciting with enough emotion and facts about the gods, but I mean come on, was anyone else annoyed by the fact that they have spent four previous books leading up to the big fight with Gaia and in the end actually defeating her seems way to easy. Also it may sound pathetic but I kind of wanted it to be Percy and Annabeth that did something really heroic and stuff and in the book they don’t do anything heroic and are made out to look incredibly weak because they are always being rescued by the others, I know they just got back from Tartarus and they are still emotionally and physically scarred and what not, but come on, I’m sure that you wanted to read about some cool water power that he masters just as much as I did.

If you have anything to say about the book, plz comment below 😉
