This is a real fantasy novel.With all of its Greek mythologies and ancient characters this really improve my knowledge.Well I take science as my major in senior high so I’m lack at history and I barely understand anything about Greek or Egypt mythologies and political histories but thanks to my reading hobby so that now I (at least) understand about the difference between Poseidon,Zeus,and Hades haha,truth to be told I didn’t even know who Zeus is before I read this novel.The story is quite interesting and it has a real rapid paces.The plot is thrilling although not really breath-taking,I can understand why the plot is simple and childish because this is a children novel holaa ahaha.Hmm,what else I can say?This book contains an overload imaginary world and things.Despite some scenes which were too ‘imaginative’ for my scientific part of brain,this novel is a worth reading one.It’s easy and simple to read.Children around 8 y.o should enjoy this the best!
I heard there has been a movie about this.People told me that the movie was dissatisfying but I can’t say a word about it now cos I myself haven’t seen it yet!
Last but not least,this,I reveal my secret of editing for you,it’s my original picture for this review’s cover edit above…
[NOT REALLY IMPORTANT,JUST MY THOUGHTS AS USUAL,SKIP IF YOU DON’T WANT TO HEAR]
Uhmm I shouldn’t have write this but I can’t help myself.I know a professional book reviewer never slip her thoughts and things in her book review but I’m not a professional so don’t care about it he he.So readers,I’ll tell you a super secret thing…
I borrowed this book from my school library two weeks ago,I should have returned it last week but then I got chicken pox.Yeah,holly crap!My whole body feels itchy right now,I’m not completely healthy yet.In fact,I didn’t go to school today and will not go too for tomorrow,that’s the real reason why I can update my blog this fast.And I still keep this library book *wink*I actually want to ask one of my friends to return it but then I’m afraid they hid my Id card after they return the book.You know I hang around with a real pranks-full friends.I don’t know how come I can hang around with them but ahemm I still love them though he he.So I hope when I’m getting healthy soon I will be able to return this book safely to the library without have to mention anything about chicken pox ( I don’t think the librarian will be happy knowing that one of the library book collections has been handed by a quirky geeky girl who suffered chickenpox for weeks).Hah,okay.I think I’ll continue my reading now,bye folks!Love ya!
p.s: I’m reading p.s I love You by Cecilia Ahern (pssttt I’m in the mood of reading romances these days,dunno why,they’re just really heart warming ❤ )
