Chapter Reviews (00:50:51)

  • Sea of Monsters chapter 3 really said, “Fight for your life, Percy!”
  • Annabeth was kinda mean this chapter. 🙁
  • BUT it really is good character development, and that’s important, too.
  • Too many Harry Potter references!
  • What’s the difference between the Fates and the Gray Sisters?
  • A little Night Bus, a little Hercules.
  • Percy was feeling BRAVE in that taxi cab.
  • Karen Googled the numbers.
  • She also gets the best quotes/moments because she makes the doc.
  • Chapter 4 has a really cool fight scene with some awesome creatures.
  • It’s good that Percy stands up to Annabeth once in a while.
  • Poor, Tyson!
  • If we get a season 2, this is going to be an amazing opener.
  • Everything has changed at Camp, and we don’t like it.
  • Wait, how did Tyson’s clothes survive the fire?
