I haven't read any of the books, but I just saw the movie. I enjoyed it, it was an entertaining movie, I liked how they incorporated various parts Greek mythology.

Given the subtitled, I'm guessing they're going to do adaptions for all the books in the series, which is cool, I look forward to seeing them.

Anyone else a fan of the books or the movie?

Book was good. Rotten Tomatoes gave the movie a 50%. Bad.

I've only read the book. T'was creative in bringing the things from myths into modern times.

Bump because.

The books were pretty good and were a nice way to introduce Greek mythology. But the movie completely messed it up! They kept out the fact that

Luke was working for Kronos

which was a major cliffhanger at the end of the first book and made it interesting. Dunno how they'll make a sequel out of that.

On the other hand, I don't really like Heroes of Olympus, either.

I hated the movie just because they left out the part in the camp bathroom.

The only reason to like the movie is if you haven't read or don't plan to read the books; the movie is completely different and removes a lot of the humor and charm of the books.

what is that again

ohhhhh the sequel series

Well, it's a toss-up. I personally enjoy the inclusion of the Romans as well as new characters; Percy is still a main character in the second book if that was a problem you had with it. Also, the books are longer than the originals which is a plus.

Two words for the movie: extremely terrible
I actually enjoyed Heroes of Olympus because the viewpoint wasn't all focused on Percy, which is a plus 8)

Never read the books but saw the movie.

Wasn't exactly impressed, it was okay for a time waster I guess.

The first Heroes of Olympus was filled with spelling errors, which I didn't like but otherwise, I enjoyed it.

I don't remember those. Anyway, I'm excited for the third book because it might possibly have a viewpoint for Annabeth
