Do you have any series or novels to recommend that you really like?( besides like harry potter , the hunger games and Percy Jackson because i have read those all )
Oh yeah. I just finished the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson and they were phenomenal. I also super duper love The Chaos Walking series.
Do you think we will see Annabeth in Rick Riordan's Norse Gods books since her cousin is most likely the main character. Also have you ever thought of doing reviews for the Kane chronicles?
I actually did review the Kane Chronicles. And idk, maybe. I think she may be mentioned in passing at best.
in boo I was expecting a long, drawn out battle with everyone coming to terms with their morality and everything that's happened, not a blink-and-you-miss-it scuffle.
I think that’s what we were all hoping for.
I feel like Rick was trying to please the fandom with BoO and that's why the story just didn't feel right. With the POVs there were ones that he needed to do for the plot like Jason and Reyna but since everyone wanted to see from Nico's Pov and the fandom loves Leo so we got there POVs. Then it seemed like Rick wanted to prove that Piper wasn't worthless to those people in the fandom who think she is (She's very important guys). So as a result, the rest of the characters and the plot suffered.
Oh, I don’t know. I think you’re right in general, but I don’t think Piper’s development had much to do with how the other characters suffered. It was pretty short. I’m having trouble trying to find a reason why we needed to stick with the athena statue for soooooo long, though.
So how did u feel about the unnecessary forced "relationship" of Will and Nico? (u can obviously tell my feelings lol)
Idk, I don’t really care except the fact that Will Solace got more screen time (so to speak) than Hazel, Frank and Percy combined.
I really agree with what you've said about BoO so far, and what I find most frustrating can be so easily summed up in that picture contrasting Percy's rallying speech in TLO vs. BoO. TLO, for me, was an absolutely fantastic conclusion to the first series and shows that RR can write a great 'grand finale' novel, and it saddens me that BoO, by comparison, felt so lacking.
Yeah I would agree with ya.
Who was your favorite character in BoO?
Listened to the Motion City Soundtrack song you posted, now listening to everything they have on Grooveshark. xD
MCS is my husband’s fav band. We bonded over them cuz we both were fans. Went to a concert together while engaged, was majikul.
Do you ever get a little annoyed that Rick Riordan always seems to need to defend himself on twitter. It's not bad for fans to have critisms if they're not being pointlessly rude. Just wondering because people were saying it felt anticlimatic and such
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with defending your work or not agreeing with other’s criticisms. Just because people have criticism they want to give, does not oblige him to agree/apply it to his writing.
What were some things you did like about the BoO book? I know for me it was just the little moments. I can't really say I found a favorite chapter or story arc that I really loved, but there were little bits and pieces that I adored. Just curious :)
Uh…Nike. And…uh…Piper and Annabeth’s friendship.
