To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I started reading the Percy Jackson series a year ago and have deeply fallen in love with it. I have read Percy Jackson series and the Heroes of Olympus series a swell i just started reading the Kane Chronicles and i can say that the greek and egyptian mix is well thought.
It honestly wasn't that good as I have expected… I was quite disappointed, cause it all happened too fast, and the fact just four demigods and magicians saving the world in such a short time didn't fit well with me… And also the friendship development was too bad.
These short stories were included in prior books (the printed versions, not just the e-version like another reviewer said). If I had realized that, I wouldn't have spent money on this. However, my daughter, who is a huge fan and for whom I bought this, was still pretty excited to get this book.
I was hugely excited for my pre-order for this. When it arrived, I couldn't wait to be the hero and give it to my daughter. I felt like a fool when she told me she already owned 2 of the book’s 3 stories in other printed Riordan books. Sad day. Why the duplicates? She was happy to receive it, but I feel like I wasted my money.
