As the story goes on, they knew that Bessie had a secret which can destroy an Olympus.
Comments: This book was funny, but I didn’t like it in the Percy Jackson Series. I think that’s because other book had more impact, and this book’s introduction was boring than the other book. My favorite scene was when Percy fights with Dr. Thorn at the Westover Hall, because that fight made the story very interesting. I recommend if you are going to read this book, you should read the book before which is The Lightning Thief and The Sea of Monsters, because I’m one of the people who didn’t read the second book which is The Sea of Monsters, and it made me difficult to understand the character and the story.
