I was really disappointed that I could not get into the book at all. It’s not that the book was bad, I just couldn’t connect with it at all.
I think I’ve narrowed my disinterest in the book down to: a) not really being interested in Egyptian mythology and not knowing anything about it; b) not being able to connect to the characters (that might be because this is only the first book in the series and I would connect with them more as I read more of the books); c) the fact that it was 500+ pages.
I’ll probably read the next in the series when I have the time but it won’t be high on my must read list.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Riordan’s books and people who enjoy Young Adult books.
Have you read The Red Pyramid? What did you think of it?
