"The Greek and Roman demigods will have to cooperate in order to defeat the giants released by the Earth Mother, Gaea. Then they will have to sail together to the ancient land--Greece itself--to find the Doors of Death"--
Leo is the new Percy!This book is fantastic. I have no inexorably negative things to say in general on this third chapter of the pentalogy, despite having found some disturbing elements. Overall, I can sum up my thoughts on the novel by writing thatLeo is the new Percy!
This book is fantastic. I have no inexorably negative things to say in general on this third chapter of the pentalogy, despite having found some disturbing elements. Overall, I can sum up my thoughts on the novel by writing that I'm expecting more from the next book, but we have already material in this one to emit the kind of sigh that readers will recognize escaping in themselves when they feel satisfied from a reading--or at least it happens to me, ha ha. I enjoyed the evolution of the story, in all its microaspects. The relationships between the characters, the usual meeting with creatures from aedico tales, the jokes, Leo (Percy is always nice, but in this particular chapter in my opinion is more beloved for his love affair with Annabeth rather than the irony, while Leo is in the romantic sense alone and consoles himself with his own mirth). Among the things which I did not like is the representation of Rome, the way in which the two giants of the time were eliminated and the affair between Leo and Hazel. --I not live in Rome, but the path of my life has led me to a holiday in the Eternal Capital just as I was reading, and the characters were about to cross the Atlantic Ocean. A bit like happened with New Moon by Stephanie Meyer, and my visit to Volterra, in the province of Pisa, but this is another story. In my short trip to SPQR City I have noticed that it is not true that Americans only eat the pizza on vacation in Italy. Apart from the fact that it's not really easy to distinguish well the nationality of the tourists, I myself have eaten two pizzas; pizzas that were not the best I ever eaten, but not nasty tasting. And people in the Boot eat pizza all the time. I cannot understand how a citizen of New York City can find chaotic Rome. I come from a town that can be considered small (although in fact it is the second largest after the capital of the province, but it doesn’t matter) and therefore all cities seem chaotic to me. But hey, at Rome there are two million people and more, but New York sees more than two million people in each of the three of the four boroughs. I've never been to New York City, but it gives me the idea that it is much more crowded compared to the Urbe (and cooler, but this is a personal opinion). But it is also true that I was in London and being the British capital as well as the Big Apple four times Rome I found it less anxiogenic; but maybe it's because I love London! --The clash with the giants twins occurs correctly, but I would have expected something more theatrical. Like spectators in flesh and bones in the stands of the Colosseum! --The link between Leo and Hazel is what I expected. How could I say? It 's the most logical answer, but it surprised me less than what I wanted... But on the other hand, Leo and the ending worthy of an absolutely satisfied sigh push my thumb upwards! :3...Continua Nascondi
