From Booklist

In this second adventure in Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, Percy is anticipating the end of seventh grade and a summer at Camp Half-Blood with kids who are the offspring of Greek gods and mortals. He dreams that his pal Grover, a satyr, is in danger. After monsters attack in his school gym class, Percy and Tyson, a homeless kid, are picked up by Annabeth, a half-blood friend, and rushed to the camp, which is under attack. The tree that guards the camp is dying, and Chiron, the activity director, has been dismissed. Another dream reveals that Grover, whose peril is increasing, is on the same island as the legendary Golden Fleece, which may be the cure for the troubled camp. With the help of Hermes, Percy and his pals set off to the Sea of Monsters, where they encounter legendary dangers. Riordan's clever mix of classical mythology, contemporary teen characters, and an action-packed adventure will bring new readers to the series. Diana Herald

Well, Percy and his friends seem to get into trouble as fast as some “hobbits” I know!

I am finding all the referrals to the Mythical Gods has kept it all very interesting.  And as I said it’s action packed and fast paced, hard to leave the book down for very long.

I think I needed some easy reading with good story telling since my ability to do anything for very long is limited.

I know the first two books have been made into movies but I did not see them..I can see where they would be super filled with special effects.

This was an enjoyable read and I have book 3 here so I will read that and at least I will have read 5 books for OUaT!  I am sure young adults will enjoy these books very much… and heck they are a good change for us “not so young” too!

I think I mentioned before that my grand-daughter loves these books. There are quite a few I think. We saw the movie too and enjoyed it.

I haven't read this one yet, as I just said in the last comment...but I did see the movie. Don't usually like to see a movie first, but it was for my son's birthday so kinda hard to say "No, you have to wait until your Mom finally gets around to reading the book." :P I did enjoy the movie, and one of these days I really, really should get around to reading it. So glad you enjoyed the second one as well!

Easy reading is sometimes just what the mind needs. Something to just relax into and enjoy reading. And adults can enjoy children's/YA books too! heck yes! lol I'm currently reading The Hobbit for the 5th or 6th time :-)

I'm really happy you are reading again, Pat.
