I chose this book because it is a great mix between Mythology and Modern Life. This book is about a teenager named Percy Jackson. It is written by Rick Riordan. It is also the last book of the series Percy Jackson and the Olympians. The book contains 381 pages. It mainly takes Place in New York City since the gate to Olympus is at the top of the Empire State Building. The goal of the Half bloods is to stop Kronos and his Army and Protect Olympus. Their best hope is Percy since he went on a mission before hand traveling to the river styx in the underworld so that he could acquire the curse of Achilles which makes him invulnerable. Except for one part of his body which he could choose. He chose the small of his back, directly opposite to his belly button. As well as that there is a spy at camp Half blood. ( Camp Half Blood is where all the demigods go to train and hide away from Monsters. Because there is a barrier which prevents Monsters and Mortals from entering.) Which from my Point of view gives the book a big kick. The Conflict in this book is between The gods of the Olympus and the half bloods, including the rest of the olympians, against: The Titans and there Lord Kronos. But there also some people that have joined the titans and one of them being Luke Castellan. He betrayed them all the worst. He allowed the Titan Lord to take over his body. Making it hard for Annabeth to fight him due to there History. Another valuable theme of the Last Olympian focuses on the importance of family and home. The last Olympian left is Hestia, goddess of the hearth (that is, the home), whom most people and gods overlook. Her presence symbolizes the theme that families are strongest together, even if they are flawed. And when Percy looks into the hearth he sees him family which is what gave him strength through the last battle. The point of view of this novel is the first person perspective. The narrator is Percy Jackson and he tells the story from memories and feelings. Percy knows of only the events around him, his own feelings, and what is shown to him through prophetic dreams. The genres of this book are: Fantasy. Greek Mythology. youth literature. I highly recommend this book because of the way the Author shows you the thoughts and memories of Percy Jackson. It's like you are in the book. I've always liked the books by Rick Riordan because of his writing style and his imagination. It's a nice distraction, and let's be honest: Who doesn't need distraction these days?
