monstersSea of Monsters by Carina and Suvir

Think of yourself attacking Cyclops, searching the world for the Golden Fleece, and saving over 300 people. Rick Riordan takes you to an imaginative world in this incredible novel. The Sea of Monsters is thought provoking and attention grabbing. It offers humor, continuous action, and loads of descriptive details.

The Sea of Monsters includes serious amusement. To start with, Percy’s group of friends come to the amusement park and try to rescue Grover from the Cyclops. They discover he is wearing a pink wedding dress. When you read those words on the page, you laugh your head off. Next, when the huge Cyclops locks up Percy’s friends, the Cyclops acts like a two year old with the sheep. He talks to them like babies. Another reason why this book is hysterical is because instead of choosing Grover to be the Cyclops’ spouse, he chooses to marry Clarisse. Now Grover is the one laughing. The characters in this novel have the funniest personalities, from Grover getting married to Tyson the clueless Cyclops.

The Sea of Monsters also offers nonstop action. To start off, when Percy reaches Camp Half Blood, a gigantic bull attacks camp. This chapter has you on the edge of your seat. During the attack, you witness Percy’s five senses. Rick Riordan has you imagining the entire scene in your head. Another part of the novel with action was when Percy and his friends were escaping the Princess Andromeda. You feel Percy’s emotion while he sneaks on to Luke’s ship. While Percy and his friends escape, you cross your fingers through the whole page. Finally, when Percy and company take Grover and start running away, the Cyclops chases them. You feel like a Cyclops is chasing you, and you want to run. You breathe a sigh of relief when Percy throws a rock and traps the Cyclops.

The Sea of Monsters has loads of descriptive scenarios. Around the beginning of this novel, Percy is attacked by bullies at his school. They are really part of Kronos’s army. Instead of being students, they are really Laistrygonian Giants. Also when Percy and his friends go into the Sea of Monsters but survive, they notice Clarisse’s ship in the wreckage. Tyson is presumed dead. Riordan’s use of vocabulary explains Percy’s emotion well. He was sad, and you feel it. Finally, Percy and Annabeth escape to an island called C.C.’s Spa and Resort. Riordan makes you think the spa is grand from Percy’s eyes.

To sum up, The Sea of Monsters is truly an astonishing novel. This book offers constant humor, ongoing action, and strong descriptive details. When you finish reading this unique story, you’re going to want to read it again and again. Choose Sea of Monsters as your Novel Madness winner today!
