The Son of Neptune (The Heroes of Olympus: The Graphic Novels, #2)

Percy is confused. When he awoke after his long sleep, he didn't know much more than his name. His brain-fuzz is lingering, even after the wolf Lupa told him he is a demigod and trained him to fight. Somehow Percy manages to make it to the camp for half-bloods, despite the fact that he had to continually kill monsters that, annoyingly, would not stay dead. But the camp doesn't ring any bells with him.Hazel is supposed to be dead. When she lived b...

    Okay, not as bad as the other graphic novels for Percy Jackson. Some of the images and characters were still quite a bit strange and not what I had in mine, but overall, I thought this was such a solid improvement in art. I actually really liked it most of the time. I thought the story was very well done, too. They kept a lot of the important parts, but they did take a few things out that I did love (especially concerning the ending). However, it...

    As usual this one didn't disappoint. Considering the book is massive some part were missing but it was summed up really good. Anyone reading the graphic novel without reading the book can easily follow the storyline. The art was great as usual and i'm looking forward to read the rest of the series (as well as the PJ graphic novels!)

    I finally finished the 2nd book in the Heroes of Olympus series! I started reading this book last summer and I just couldn't get past the first 100 pages since it was just like The Lost Hero but with different characters. If I didn't pick up this graphic novel I wouldn't have continued on with the series. ANYWHO... I thought this was alright. The artwork was completely different from how I originally thought out the characters to be like but it w...

    Well first off I wanna say this is actually the way I had pictured Percy Jackson to look. I won't say i'm a big fan of Rick Riordan`s work but I did enjoy this action novel. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a quick read to clear their mind and get lost in the world of Demi-gods. I started to read this book as part of my school assignment but now i'm sad that i started this book series from the second book. I'm going to fin...

    I really enjoyed this version of the book! There is a slight difference from the books but I won't complain, I know not everything can make it to the books and I enjoyed more the art of this version than the previous novels.

    4.5 Stars!! Loved it just like the book!

    Great, easy read. Especially if you like PJO. Good adaption of the book by Riordan overall, although, a few MAJOR puzzle pieces were left out that set up the story for later. Would have liked to see those included.

    Really goodI can't wait to see the next book imagined as a graphic novel...I bet that it will be really amazing!!!

    GoodGood, but to truly enjoy the hero's of Olympus story you have to read the word for word books because you miss out on the emotions and jokes at certain parts. I recommend using the graphic novels as a way of rereading the series without actually rereading the thousands of pages.

    4 out of 5 starsLoved it. I enjoy reading graphic novels for books I have already read, because they bring a story I already love to life.I will say this though. The guy who illustrated this graphic novel must be a huge Nico fan, because he drew him hella sexy. Meanwhile, Percy just seemed like your average joe hero (and he's supposed to be older then him by a couple of years), while Nico is walking around with these sexy bangs, always shrouded i...

    It cut way to much from the actual book. It left out some events that would help explain parts of the story.

    They skipped too many things from the book.

    I don't really like the way Percy is drawn, not to mention that there are some scenes which I really wanted to be in here.

    'Son of Neptune' knocks it out of the park. Not only did the most graphic of novels reignite my childhood love of Percy Jackson but- even more impressively, it made me fall for an entirely new universe of demi-god heroes and villains that I scarcely even knew existed. I zoned out of Percy and co after the original series- never clicked with Jason and at was at that 'too old for this crap anyway' age- so my decision to pick this book up was soaked...

    Warning. If you haven't read the book already, proceed with caution. There may or may not be spoilers. Depends on what you qualify as "spoilers".Well. It was pretty good overall. But there's one thing that really bothered me. Percy didn't fall off the glacier. There was no "oh no, he's gonna die!" feeling. I wanted to see the faces of Hazel and Frank when they find him, safe and sound and proclaims "that that was nothing, I fell off the Saint Loi...

    I loved it. It is a really good way to re-read the book if you don't want to go through the whole five-hundred novel again, it has the general idea but there were some things skipped that I would have liked to see. I don't know if it's me or Frank and Hazel are more protagonists in the story than Percy, I don't know but still REALLY good.The art is amazing, my fav character is Frank he looks exactly as I imagined, Percy looked younger though, and...

    I definitely recommend the graphic novels to everyone like me who loves the Percy Jackson world! It's a quick way to make yourself happy by immersing yourself in the world of the Greek (and Roman) Gods and heroes in like 30 minutes. If you're already familiar with the story, you'll flew through this like I did. A very good read to someone who misses the gang but doesn't want to commit to rereading the series again. But, beware, you'll end up want...

    First of BookTubeAThon 2018 is complete!This was a fun, quick and refreshing read!I honestly remembered nothing about Son of Neptune (except for every time that Percy mentions Annabeth...)But it was so much fun to be back in this world with these characters! I had forgotten how much I adore Frank and Hazel. They are wonderful!!!And Percy is wonderful too (but I hadn’t forgotten that lmao)I really hope they make a graphic novel for the Mark of A...

    I really liked this adaptation of the son of Neptune , however I think that it should have been longer for it leaves out a ton of important details that I only knew because I’ve read the actual book, I also thing that Percy could have been portrait as much better looking , but I’m not here to judge that since it’s such a subjective thing lol, but overall it’s pretty good. The book itself would amount to 3 stars but I loved not only the ja...

    I have been resistant to reading these books for years. Although I believe I would like them, I just haven't been interested. However, when I saw the graphic novel, I thought it might give me a good insight into the storyline. I was pleasantly surprised. I knew of Percy Jackson but not the other characters. I think that I am more likely now to read the series. Well done!

    I like this book illustration the most compared to other PJTO&HOO graphic novels. Somehow it retains the wiry, humorous bearing of Percy. It is also able to capture the underlying toughness and sweet disposition of Hazel and Frank. However I think it rushes in the end and doesn't give its readers enough satisfaction with the Alaska & Canada scene.

    I loved this graphic novel. I'm a huge Rick Riordan fan, and I've read the actual book two times and I can tell you that there are only minor differences that make sense. The art style is pretty well done as well. All in all, the Heroes of Olympus graphic novels are coming along far better than the Percy Jackson ones and if you want a quick reread, this would not be a bad decision.

    It was funny and helped me remember the plot so I can read the third book of the series. I was enjoying it so much that I just wanted more and was super tempted to just re-read the book. Overall, I’d recommend it to the fans of the series. It was interesting to see how certain things weren’t as I imagined.

    I love Rick Riordan and went through a Rick Riordan obsession three-four years ago when I tried to read every Rick Riordan book. It's been three years since I read The Son of Neptune, and I haven't reread it since.The illustrations were absolutely stunning, and somehow, the illustrator was able to capture the most interesting parts of the books into a beautiful graphic novel. I tore through this so fast, but the characters were exactly the way I ...

    What a fantastic adaption of my fave pjo book :) I loved it from start to finish. The drawings were so cool and Hazel is ridiculously pretty. The Iris chapter! Ahh I loved it. Very glad I read this and want to read the others badly now

    Although it leaves out a chunk of things that were deemed unnecessary, it is a good representation of the book, and it a good recap for people not wanting to reread all of the son of neptune before starting on mark of athena.

    1970-01-01
    This book was good. Not great or bad, just good. I like the way that the illustrator potrays Percy and Frank, but everyone else looks off. I think that it missed a few ley details, and if you read it, you would be lost. The Gods were unrealistic.

    AwesomeIt is just like the real book but there are pits of parts that missing. Just like all of Rick Riordan books it is amazing. It continues Percy Jackson's adventures after the battle of the Titans. I think it is a great book for ages 8 and up.
