Cuando tomo uno de estos libros de Percy Jackson, siempre me da escalofríos. Cada vez que veo la portada, recuerdo con cariño la primera vez que la leí; Recuerdo a los dioses, recuerdo todas las escuelas que Percy destruyó, pienso en Grover, en la gran Annabeth y en el hilarante medio hermano de Percy, Tyson, el cíclope. Recuerdo todas las aventuras del hijo del dios del mar, Percy Jackson. Bien, déjenme aclarar esto: mientras viva, nunca me cansaría de los sereis de Percy Jackson. Sin embargo, me tomó un tiempo entrar en este libro, ¡todo se movía muy rápido! Pero en el buen sentido. Artemisa, la Diosa de la Caza, desapareció junto con la amiga de Percy, Annabeth. Se embarca en una incierta búsqueda para encontrarlos. Artemis debe ser encontrada por el solsticio de invierno, porque ella es un papel importante en el Consejo Olímpico. A lo largo de su búsqueda, el joven semidiós es perseguido por la presión de resolver un misterio del terrible monstruo que la Diosa estaba cazando, un monstruo tan increíblemente terrible y mortal que podría destruir el Monte Olimpo y habitar para siempre.

I got this book mainly because it's about a wildly imaginative, storytelling, red-haired Irish girl with the last name of O'Sullivan. (That's me. Except I'm Tara, not Kate.) It was a selfish, ego-stroking purchase, admittedly. I wasn't really expecting to find myself loving the story itself.[return][return]I'm constantly finding new kids to read this to, and I haven't found an unresponsive audience yet. The illustrations are top knotch and I'm in love with Kate's whole personality. Definitely a good purchase, even if you're an adult!

I think this may be one of McCullough's best books. I listened to it in my car. It took almost of month of commutes but I didn't want it to end. I've read books about or set around Americans in Paris but during the Hemingway years. McCullough takes us back further to explore the Americans who lived in Paris in the 19th Century. I love Paris and I feel like I was dropped there in a different time. This felt like a who's who of so many great American thinkers and artists and writers. John Singer Sargent, Mary Cassatt, Oliver WEndell Holmes, JAmes Fennimore Cooper, to name a few. I know the work of many of these individuals but not much about their lives. I loved that the backdrop of their stories were set against the history of Paris in the 19th Century. Again, history I knew from my textbooks but really came alive through McCullough sharing their letters, etc. Great read.
