Percy is surprised,confused, and happy, because he has almost made the school year without getting expelled. In his life he has never gone a school year without getting expelled. This year it is the last day of school, and this year there has not been any incidents that effect his chance in the school. This surprises him. He is confused because he wonders why all this good luck is coming to him now and why he is surviving school. He is happy because if he makes the school year, it would be the first time ever.
Percy is embarrassed, because everyday, he has to stand guard for his friend Tyson everyday while he is changing. it feels awkward just standing in front of a weight room telling people not to go in there.(14)
Percy is annoyed because Tyson is so happy that Percy is his brother. Tyson is randomly giggling ever five seconds. He is acting in a very jujube way toward Percy
Percy is confused, because there are evil bulls that are crossing into the camp.The bulls aren't suppose to do that. It seems that the magical border are broken the bulls are spryly run all over the place.(38)
Clarisse is annoyed because Percy Jackson was acting like a "hero" and almost killed her. She had the bronze bull situation under control until Percy messed everything up! He thinks that he is so erudite, like he is better than everyone else.(44)
Percy is annoyed, because his favorite teacher, Chiron, got fired for something that he didn't do. Now, he has to survive the new teacher, named Tantalus, who is very mean to him he dislikes his so much, that he already singled him out as trouble.(58)
`Annabeth is annoyed, because her friend Percy is forcing her to bring his monster cyclops brother on board their quest. Annabeth hates Cyclopes because they were the reason why her best friend Thalia died because of a cyclops and now she has to journey with one!(109)
Percy is horrified, because he has found a jogger in the middle of the night jogging on the beach. This might sound normal, but the beach was in a unknown place to man and there was not any cite of house for miles, were would the jogger come from?(98)
"Without thinking, I swung my sword. Too late. I sliced the Hydra's head clean off. In a matter of seconds, the wounded neck split into two necks. Now, I was looking at an eight-headed hydra"(130). This quote shows that Percy is inexperienced when fighting monsters.
"Wait!" the gray sisters screamed. "30, 31, 75, 12!" "What do you mean?". "That makes no sense!". "Thats all we can tell you" Anger wailed. This quote shows that these numbers could mean something important for the future.
"The golden fleece!" Annabeth screams. "And she was swallowed by the water"(97). This quote shows that this, also, will be important in the future.
I thought that story actually happened. It turned out it was in his dream.
I think that dream might mean something later. since it is in the beginning of the book it could mean something anytime in the book, from now to the end.
Percy has a lot of dreams that seem to make an impact on his life.
Usually his drams start the beginning of a chapter, and you cant tell it is a dream until the book says he wakes up.
each chapter is usually about different set of characters.
There is seriously something odd going on at Camp Half-Blood. If Percy’s mom cannot tell him, and nor can Chiron, so there is something major occurring. 3/23/15
Percy has always had trouble following him, being a son of Poseidon, so after many years of peace at camp, trouble is arising. 3/23/15
Percy is lucky to have a father from the elements, so if he is ever injured, he can just get healed from the water. 3/24/15
I think that Tyson is some Greek creature, because of the way he is resisting the fireballs. He is blocking them like they are nothing. 3/24/15
Annabeth regards Tyson badly, meaning that he is a Greek creature that is disregarded and lowly cast. 3/25/15
The form of transportation that Annabeth, Percy, and Tyson are using is obviously something specially Greek. 3/25/15
The Gray Sisters cab is very dangerous, though fast. I wonder if it can crash with mortals, and what would happen if it did. 3/26/15
Judging on the way Annabeth knows so much about ancient Greek things, in detail, aside from the fact that she is a daughter of Athena, she also went through a lot with Luke and Thalia. 3/26/15
Percy never got much of a chance to interact with Luke, and no chance with Thalia, but he understands how close Annabeth was with them. 3/27/15
Now that Annabeth has lost both Thalia and Luke, she is more lonely than she’s been for a long time, but Percy has been there for her. 3/27/15
“the shore of Camp Half-Blood was nothing but a dark smudge” This is a great example of imagery and helps the reader see what it felt like to escape from camp at midnight. It also shows how dark it is and how far Percy was from the shore. (110).
“Great, that clears it up” Annabeth has a sense of humor when it comes to dangerous situations. She gets impatient and is sometimes sarcastic. (114)
“I Have The Worst Family Reunion Ever” The chapter titles are usually funny and are good at not giving away the whole thing but leaving suspense. This makes the readers want to keep reading. (121).
“‘Yes sir’, they said dreamily” The word “dreamily” indicates to the reader that these people are under some sort of trance and are not normal. (131).
“Finally, we were escorted to dinner” The word “finally” translates to Percy’s thoughts. He is very annoyed that it is taking so long and wants to just stay away from the crew members. (148).
“KAROOM” Because every letter is bolded and capitalized, it is clear that something very important and very loud is happening. (163).
“Painted on its prow was the name that I would only decipher later” I think that this name will be very important to Percy in the future. The author only gives us a glimpse of a later event. (185).
“...leaving us alone with a pot of boiling water and a six-to boulder” It is interesting to see a situation in this way because you actually see what the characters have to go through physically.
These items show how impossible this mission is for Percy and his friends.
I think the narrator is very reliable and is accurate with what they are saying. The narrator is usually follows Percy and can see through his eyes.
The narrator makes us know that Percy is thinking something, but does not tell us what he is thinking.
Why are they going to Miami. It was at the beginning of the chapter and it did not say why they are there.
I think it is really cool how Grover changes when he leaves camp halfblood. He turns in to a human
Out side of camp halfblood it looks like normal land, but when you go in everything is there.
The whole book is in Percy's point of view, but it tells a lot about the other characters
Percy Jackson is an eminent character in The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan. When escaping from camp to go with his friends on a mission, he is constantly on the move to survive. There is no way that Percy could do this on his own. Having to fight monsters, dodge arrows and jump off cliffs, he mostly relied on his friends for help. Having just recently met his friends, he doesn’t really know what to think of them. But when he is amidst a life or death challenge, then he must act immediately. If he thought about a decision for too long then he would put others at risk. That is why is was very successful in most of his quests. Without thinking, Percy has to trust his friends especially in times of great danger.
When Percy comes to camp, he meets his half-brother, Tyson. Tyson is a son of Poseidon and is a cyclops and only has one eye. This was a huge shock to Percy but of course, he had to go on another dangerous mission. Quickly, he had to choose who he would adventure with and get going. Tyson is a very clumsy person even when he’s on a top-secret mission. At first, Percy doesn’t have any faith in Tyson being able to help throughout the trip. But when the time comes when his ship is about to blow up, he has to trust Tyson to fix the engine. The ship holds hundreds of people and having the engine blow up would cost a lot of lives. Tyson volunteered to go down and risk his life to fix the engine. Afraid that the ship would explode, Percy let him go down and gave everyone enough time to evacuate. His last minute decision saved his and many other lives on the ship.
As soon as the quest goes wrong and Grover is captured, Annabeth creates a dangerous plan. Annabeth is one of Percy’s best friends and is very intelligent. She is the daughter of Athena so it is obvious why she is smart. Just like in the myths about Odysseus, Percy is supposed to ride on the underside of a sheep and go into the cyclops cave. But as Annabeth is very wise, she is very risky with her decisions that can get him killed. Even though this is a huge risk, Percy knows that he must act immediately. If he wastes any more time trying to decide whether to go under a smelly sheep or not, then his friend could be already dead. Eventually, he took a deep breath and successfully made it from outside to inside the cave. He quietly freed Grover; again with the help of Annabeth; and ran away from the beast. The fact that his best friend was in danger motivated him to listen to Annabeth’s crazy plan and go in the cave.
In most situations, Percy is faced with a life or death challenge. He is forced to overcome these problems with determination and guts. But Percy is only a middle school boy who is very impatient to act. Thankfully he has friends that can guide him through difficult times. Difficult for Percy is very different from difficult today. He has to fight monsters every year because he is half god. Sometimes his new friends may have certain flaws in their personalities but they are still good friends. When Percy has to face a very dangerous situation, he must let go of those flaws and just trust them to do the right thing.
The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan is an exciting thriller with a twisting plot that brings together 2 friends and an 2 partial enemies together to save something they all love. In order to save Camp Half-Blood, the campers have to find the Golden Fleece. That is the only way to protect the magical borders and Thalia’s pine tree, as Chiron is temporarily removed from the camp. Grover is also trapped by the giant Polythemes, who has the Golden Fleece. Grover uses a rare empathy connection with Percy in order to give him important background knowledge on how to get to Polythemes’s lait. Percy, Annabeth, Clarisse, and Tyson have to work together to retrieve the Fleece and save Grover. Going through difficult situations causes Percy and Annabeth to become closer friends with Clarisse.
Percy, Annabeth, and Clarisse all possess hatred towards each other. The new camp assistant, Tantalus, nurtures this. He praises Clarisse without depth, and condemns Percy for no good reason. She thanked Percy for saving her life, but she also makes sure to return the favor. Though Clarisse makes a point of thanking Annabeth, she also makes it clear that the two are even. “‘Just because you were cool one time, Jackson, don’t think you’re off the hook with Ares. I’m still waiting for the right opportunity to pulverize you.’” Her first impression of Percy turned out to be very negative. Out of anger at Clarisse for making fun of him and Annabeth and making war-like threats, Percy’s Poseidon abilities acted up and all of the plumbing water in the bathrooms rose and attacked Clarisse and her Ares siblings at his command. Percy is tired of being picked at, and fights back. Even after acquiring glory for finding Zeus’s lightning bolt, Clarisse still hated Percy. Because of this, Annabeth’s dislike of Clarisse increased even more. Different events that originate from emotions cause characters to develop changes in hatred or love towards each other.
Annabeth and Clarisse still share a bit of a mutual dislike of each other. She thanked Percy for saving her life, but she also makes sure to return the favor. Though Clarisse makes a point of thanking Annabeth, she also makes it clear that the two are even. Percy also has many animosities against Clarisse. However, she hates him even more. But Clarisse still possesses that indifferent unfriendliness towards Percy. However, that is bound to happen, because Percy is still at high odds with Clarisse’s dad, Ares. Clarisse doesn’t enjoy Percy’s company, though she is in debt to him. He might have stolen her quest, but she couldn’t have completed it without him. In the end, it was Percy’s grievance of Tyson that gave him the strength to control the sea and complete the quest. “My anger swelled. I couldn’t believe I’d come this far, lost Tyson, suffered through so much, only to fail...Strength coursed through my body. I raised my sword and attacked, forgetting that I was hopelessly outmatched.” As Clarisse’s dispense, the group has an unpleasant history of interactions with other. However, they have to learn to work together, if they want to succeed in killing Polythemes and retrieving the Golden Fleece. In order to do this, they have to fall back on the one thing they all share in common- their desire to save Camp Half-Blood, Thalia, and the pine tree, and well as bringing back Chiron.
Compromising occurrences along with life-necessary alliances causes the even most random people to share a special bond, which connects them in ways never imagined. It is the human emotion to possess feelings that set us apart from the world. These emotions are constantly swirling, and changing like the weather. Clarisse, Percy, and Annabeth experienced this change of heart through their adventures. The bonds created between powerful people have the potential to develop into great things never seen before, united under one cause.
