Another great book written by Rick Riordan. Some criticize his writing, but you must admit he keeps you turning the pages with his action and you can't help but love the characters. I think you must remember that this are books written for children. I love all the Egyptian lore that is stuffed into these pages. I think you learn a lot when you read his books, whether it be about Egyptian or Greek mythology. The Kane siblings must save the world again in this sequel to the Red Pyramid. This time they must find Ra, the Sun God, and restore him in order to stop the evil plans of Apophis, the God of Chaos. A fun adventure tale that will keep you or your child turning the pages.
This book marked the last time I trusted the NYT Book Review. Sure, Curtis Sittenfeld accurately voiced the trials and tribulations of the average post-pubescent adolescent. So f'ing what. Booooring. I give it a 2 b/c there are a few great scenes that made me feel like I hadn't completely wasted my time. I think it would have been better as a series of short stories.
** spoiler alert ** In this book there are two kids named Petta Malark and Catness Everdeen.Catness and Peeta were both submitted into the Hunger games to represent there district (district 12)in the Games. In "the games" two kids from each district go to play in a killing and surviving game, and if they win they have limitless amount of money and food. In the beggining of the book Peeta and Catness have lived 2 years in district 12 with a large house a ton of food and a relaxed life. Then all of a sudden President Snow shows up at Catness' house giving Catness improtent information about recent uprisings in district eight all because she picked up poison berries so that she could save peeta and they could both win. The story takes place in district one through twelve and occasionally other places. district one is know as the capital. the capital is as its named the capital Panam (the country). The main conflict is Peeta and Catness have to pretend to be in love to make the other districts think she pulled the poisonous berries for love not to trick the capital. Peeta and Catness are faced with many problems like the peace keepers (the riot control) has wanted them dead or caught in the act of something illegal so they can arrest them once and for all. In the end Peeta and Catness fail to convince the capital and the districts that they are in love so the capital sends in heavy artillery to destroy district twelve after Catness destroys the force field over the district.
there was nothing significant about this book in my opinion other than it being a footnote of the high water mark of subordination by whites and the folly therein, on the precipice of destruction. the language was not interesting, the story moved along at a good pace but there was no originality or specific purpose to it, and the characters were marginal, with gatsby being an exception simply in that he foreshadowed his a-alike kerouac used in on the road (which is also hardly noteworthy any longer outside of it being a story of riding the initial fall down the slope just beyond the precipice fitzgerald described). he still shook his hand in the end, and that pussy ass nature is the laziness i ascribe it's writer.
Spooky! So much better than the movie. Now for Doctor Sleep!!
