(The Lost Hero Book Report)
Part I: Book Report
I would rate this novel as 8 out of 10 for a few reasons. First, the author seems to know a lot about mythology, Greek and Roman. When he put the story all together, it relate a lot to the myth of Greek and Roman people, sometimes it seems to make the myth make more sense. Second of all, Rick Riodan always start with very little information which makes the readers just want to know what will happen next. In the middle of the book, the author starts to add more information, little by little. At the end of the book, everything come together and. it all make sense. The third reason is the author used a lot of techniques that makes the readers curious. Sometimes it is foreshadowing, a flashback, and at the end of the book is a cliffhanger. Last but not least, I also like this book because it is action-packed and it relates a lot to Greek mythology. I was always interested about the gods and goddesses.
This novel could improve if the author hasn’t put too much unnecessary information. Like when Jason described how he NEEDS to fight Enceladus, it was not needed. He can just say how he fought the giant, how his friends helped him. But maybe the author did this because he wants people who didn’t know much about Greek and Roman techniques can understand why demigods fight like that. Second of all, the author makes the story funnier when things are suspenseful. For example: Death toke out his Ipad and checked the death list. Sometimes, the author makes it fun, but sometimes it is not the right place and time. When Percy was in big trouble and tried to use his phone, he inserted: “For us demigods, using phone is like sending a signal to a monster, I’m here, come and kill me”. It was okay at first but that was like the fifth time the author use the sentence. It was not funny anymore.
Every one from young to old could enjoy this book, especially children and teenagers around 11-20 with high vocabulary would like this book a lot. This novel has a lot of action, sometimes a little of romantic, about friendship, and of course, sacrifices and noble souls. To sum up, this book is worthwhile reading. ii) Summary:
