The Titan’s Curse, by Rick Riordan

250px-The_titan's_curseThe third installment of the Percy Jackson series (which began with The Lightning Thief) is The Titan’s Curse. Halfway between two summers at Camp Half-Blood, Percy gets roped into following a quest of fellow half-blood Thalia, daughter of Zeus. Kronos is still stirring, getting stronger; Artemis and her hunters become entwined in the plot; and we get to meet Atlas for the first time – he’s rather bitter about his lot, understandably.

Like the second book, The Sea of Monsters, this book just didn’t live up to the first. Halfway through, I asked myself why was I still reading this series. It’s no where near as good as something like Harry Potter, I didn’t really care about the characters, and I was getting bored. Plus there was the occasional “fart-arrow” type humor which I really just hate. After the first half, though, the plot picked up, and I finished quickly to move on to the fourth book.
