Percy is way too entitled at the start of the book. We get it. You're the son of Poseidon, and you went on a quest last summer, but you're 13 so shut up. He did not learn to stop being so dang entitled until he literally got his memory erased in The Son of Neptune. All this being said, I love Tyson, I love Annabeth, and I love how this story mirrors the Odyssey.

A great second book, true to the myths, and amazing as usual for his books.
