In our final episode on the Sea of Monsters, our crew escapes Polyphemus, has a run in with Luke, some more prophecy fun, and we get a BIG reveal for the remainder of the series. Charles and Asia get into more Clarisse, some more budding romance, and a really nice tie-up to the Tyson plotline. We discuss the merits and successes of the gods’ parenting skills, and start speculation for the next book.
Next week we will be reading chapters 1-10 of book 3 in the series, the Titan’s Curse.
We travel to the Sea of Monsters and run into a bunch of obstacles not least of which are Luke and Clarisse. We talk about Luke’s evil plan, Clarisse’s problem solving methods, and lots and lots of romance. We also get into more fun facts, history lessons, and each other’s fatal flaws, and did we already mention the romance?
Next week we will be reading chapters 15-20 of book 2 in the series, the Sea of Monsters.
We break into The Sea of Monsters to discuss chapters 1-7 and get into conversations on dreams, poisoned trees, and how only in fiction do we allow absolutely terrible people to be responsible for children. We tackle the not-so-tough questions of when did you figure out that something was up with Tyson and when did Annabeth start stalking Percy? And we discuss the plural of cyclops. Stay tuned if you know what it is.
Next week we will be reading chapters 8-14 of book 2 in the series, the Sea of Monsters.
