Right now, the last three books I've read are the Percy Jackson series. I have two more to go. And, obviously, I like them a lot--the author is funny and clever and its a quick read (obviously, once again). But, there are a few things that bug me. One, I hate it when there are so many questions and they could be answered but no, something comes up and you're just left hanging! Did that make any sense? Like, something totally doesn't make sense, and the character is asking whats going on, and SOMEONE knows, but they won't answer the questions and then everyone has to run off and kill a monster or something. I HATE feeling confused--I've watched enough of LOST to be done with that. I totally get that they can't spill EVERYTHING, where's the entertainment in that, but throw me a bone here please!
The other thing that bugs me specifically about these books are "the gods". I just don't like that its so hypocritical, like they say stuff like "we can't trust you Percy Jackson, you're too powerful!" ummmm, hello?! You're a GOD! And they say "your good intentions can change Percy Jackson." except you don't care at all about anything except getting laid. I don't know, I find some of it with the gods really stupid or annoying or something. And why are they having twelve year old kids fight monsters when they can freaking do it themselves?
BUT, please don't let that stop you from reading the books if you want to, honestly they're great and awesome and fun! Just wanted to get that off my chest, ahhhh I feel better now. :)
(side note: Ooh oooh! I just figured something out! The reason why we tell our kids "Oh well, life's not fair." is because we're eating chocolate and we don't want to share! Atleast thats what just happened to me and it made total sense.) :)
