Rick Riordan Has Done It Again!!!

All right, guys, you got to read this one!!! I've just finished The Battle of the Labyrinth and, whoa, was it good!!!

I don't want to tell you a lot because I'd give away something important, but I will tell you that Percy, Annabeth, and Grover are in the most dangerous situation yet! Camp Half-Blood might really go up in flames this time, just as some of the monsters predict. And the monsters----wow, they are the scariest, most horrible, strongest, toughest yet!! You'll really hold your breath wondering if Percy gets through it all. And Grover's in big trouble too---will he complete his search or have to live the rest of his life in disgrace? And who is this Quintus guy? Whose side is he really on? You want action, suspense, danger, excitement? Then go read it now!!! And, like all the other PJ books, this one is also laugh-out-loud funny! I can't say enough good things about this fourth book. Some books are just way above everything else. Some books are so good that others seem like pale comparisons. I'm reading several things now and they're all good, but this one stands above the rest like a giant redwood compared to a bush. An ancient Greek philosopher, Plato, said that there are archetypes--that is, the one real and true existence of an object and everything else was just an imitation. For instance, Plato would say that there is only one true and perfect dog out there in the metaphysical world and that all the dogs on earth are imitations. That's how I feel about The Battle of the Labyrinth. Go read it, guys!!!!
