Re: The Last Olympian

I started it and finished it the day after it came out. It was great. I was a little worried about what to expect too, but Rick Riordan gave the series a pretty awesome conclusion. Be prepared for some action-packed suspense for sure.

 

I still remember waiting for the last Harry Potter book, and that one made me a lot more nervous than this one did. I think Riordan did a great job and I'm really looking forward to seeing if he writes another Camp Half-Blood series.


What did everyone else think?

Re: The Last Olympian

Yeah I read it I wasn't expecting the end, and If you don't like Rachel then I have good news and bad news the bad news is she doesn't die but she doesn't date Percy. So read like crazy.

Re: The Last Olympian

i loved the end with luke!!!!!!! that was the best possible way for him to ... go... cuz if at the end he comes up to percy and annabeth saying "oh jeez, looks like i messed up...big time. so can you guys just forgive me cuz yah know i was under kronos' power..." that would have been awful!

 

I LOVED THE ENDING!!!!

****SPOILER****

WITH ANNABETH AND PERCY!!! AAHAHAHA IT WAS FANTASIC!! LOL

THE PART WHEN THE CAMPERS THROW HIM AND ANNABETH INTO THE LAKE........LOL....THAT WAS GREAT! AWKARD IN ONE SENSE...BUT GREAT!!

i know!!! that was soooo cute! i'm so happy for them!! haha!

 

they casted the totally wrong actors for the leading roles... the girl who plays annabeth is like 22 years old...

www.imdb.com

you can search "percy jackson" on that site, and get the complete cast list!

Re: The Last Olympian

i no!! it is rediculous! i mean i love chris columbus, he did brilliantly when he directed harry potter 1+2, but the cast for PJO is rather... sketchy? i would never have pictured that kid for percy! only because i think percy has to be perfect! .... and james bond is the new chiron?? uhh what were you thinking?????????? yikes! i love pierce but uhmmn not as chiron! i hope the cast blows my mind in the movie, cuz im not so sure right now...

Re: The Last Olympian

I didn't mind the casting except that Annabeth is in her 20's. She should have be younger.

Re: The Last Olympian

I totally agree why the heck did they get a 22 almost 23 year old actress!!
