Victory! The Cat has wandered off. Where were we?

Let’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 10, Pt 1

We start off with Percy noting he doesn’t own much and decides to leave behind his minotaur horn which I think is a bad call. It is a pretty awesome artifact to keep upon your person and I am reasonably sure the Minotaur isn’t going to regenerate from it. Reasonably. The camp store gives him … Read moreLet’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 10, Pt 1

Let’s Read – Lightning Thief – Chapter 9

Percy gets moved to cabin 3 and is utterly miserable. He takes it as out casting rather than honoring which it could be taken as. He is completely incapable of experiencing change in a positive manner. Luke teaches him swordsman’s ship one on one, which again is an honor rather than a rejection, Annabeth is … Read moreLet’s Read – Lightning Thief – Chapter 9

Let’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 8

We start off the chapter with Percy discussing his routine. First up is learning Greek. Woo for learning ancient Greek! I am all for anyone learning Greek! It is a wonderful if difficult language to pick up but well worth it. Um… So they are teaching him Homeric Greek? That’s an odd choice. I mean … Read moreLet’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 8

Let’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 6

We start off the chapter with a poop joke. This isn’t going to go easy on me is it?   As Chiron and Percy are walking away from the farm house, Something twitches a curtain on the top floor. Percy makes his perception check and asks Chiron about it. Chiron gives a wonderful rules lawyer … Read moreLet’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 6

Let’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 5 Pt 3

First thing to note is that they have an orientation film. Which brings up delightful questions of live-action or animated? And who went ahead and did the editing and the like on it? Which Greek God do ya’ll vote to be the most technologically savvy? I think Hermes, but am open to suggestions. The bomb … Read moreLet’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 5 Pt 3

Let’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 5 Pt 1

One of the things that keeps occurring to me is that I really wish this was written by someone who could string scenes together. The first three paragraphs in the proper hands could have added depth and interest to the characters he is talking about. It could have been a few pages of establishing the … Read moreLet’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 5 Pt 1

Let’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 4

We start the chapter with St. Mom tearing away in the Camaro, and Percy is being freaked out by Grover having hooves, fur and smelling like Lanolin. Which is odd that he knows the smell and odder cause goats don’t smell like sheep. They smell like goats.   Percy tries for a conversational gambit which … Read moreLet’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 4

Let’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 3

On to the next chapter in which I entirely disregaurd the plot the second actual Greek shows up because I am Me and that was a welcome diversion. We start with Percy ditching Grover for being a weirdo at the first possible second he could and I would place that as one of the first … Read moreLet’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 3

Let’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 2 Part 1

We pick up with Percy inconceivable not dead from a harpy attack. He complains about being Gas Lighted, even if he doesn’t have the words for it.  He almost gives in except Grover sucks at this masquerade thing in a hard way. Which brings up the question to me, How old is Grover really anyway? … Read moreLet’s Read – The Lightning Thief – Chapter 2 Part 1
