Description

Percy Jackson isn't expecting freshman orientation to be any fun. But when a mysterious mortal acquaintance appears on campus, followed by demon cheerleaders, things quickly move from bad to worse.

In this latest installment of the blockbuster series, time is running out as war between the Olympians and the evil Titan lord, Kronos, draws near. Even the safe haven of Camp Half-Blood grows more vulnerable by the minute as Kronos' army prepares to invade its once impenetrable borders. To stop the invasion, Percy and his demigod friends must set out on a quest through the Labyrinth - a sprawling underground world with stunning surprises at every turn.

Full of humor and heart-pounding action, this latest audiobook promises to be their most thrilling adventure yet.

Great Novel...Not so Great Reader

I love these novels. Unfortunately I get really irritated by the random accents and inconsistent voices between the various novels (Grovers Voice changes 3 times?). Some of his accents are even borderline offensive (some more blatantly offensive). Also, he cant pronounce basic Greek Mythological terms at times or uses those with multiple pronunciation options inconsistently. Frankly, its quite grating. It got worse with each novel...

It's a awesome series even as an adult reader...

but I would have rated the performance a lot higher if it weren't for the fact that Jesse Bernstein's accents were over the top. Jesse is a great narrator and I often enjoy listening to him but his accents for some of the characters were off and in particular the "Asian" accent was offensive. I state accent because he just uses one, which is poorly done and honestly Mr Yunoshi bad. In book 3 he uses the same accent for a female Asian character.

I am sure this was not done intentionally or meant to offend but I was really disappointed to listen to his attempt at a generic "Asian" accent. Unfortunately one of the characters is of Asian descent and I had to listen to the bad attempt throughout a couple of chapters. It really ruined my enjoyment of the book overall.

I usually do not write reviews but I felt as someone who is of Asian heritage, I needed to express this as there isn't a lot of representation for us in the North American mainstream. I was sadden by Jesse's attempt at portraying an Asian character.

Awesome book

My son loves to listen to recorded books and the entire Percy Jackson series is great! He is always looking forward to the next book in the series. The narrator does a fantastic job in capturing his imagination and making him feel like he is part of the action of the story. #Audible1

ready for book 5!!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Battle of the Labyrinth: Percy Jackson, Book 4 to be better than the print version?

I guess so. I haven't read the print version so I really can't compare the two.

What did you like best about this story?

This book had to be my favorite, it had soo much going on it was great. It had all the characters and new ones that brought different excitement to the whole story line.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Grover finally found Pan

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The whole scene with Pan and Grover. and then the end scene when the guy who built the labrath finally released his soul to death..

Any additional comments?

None.

Good!

My kids love having these on audio. The narrator isn't my very favorite (not Harry Potter quality) but tolerable.

Great book

It's a great book any way but the narritive gives it that little slit to the favorite book in my mind

Love this

I have always been a fan of Rick Riordan, and I’m honestly amazed at how he brings mythology to life. I read these books as a teenager, and nearly 10 years later, I’m rereading them and still mesmerized. While the voice acting has left a little to be desired, Jesse Bernstein has done an amazing job through the series and has gotten better. Only occasionally am I cringing at a character voice (Poseidon’s is one that does it for me - and his part is so small it’s negligible). I recommend this to everyone, young and old, for a fresh breath into the mythology we all grew to love and know as kids.

What is going on with Jesse Bernstein

The story is excellent but I cannot say the same for Jesse Bernstein’s performances in this series. He is inconsistent in his voices, his inflection is awkward most of the time, and he has a very limited range of voices he can do. This is especially prevalent in his voicing of the side character campers who all sound like Clarisse in different wigs. Other than that, his pacing is good and his voice acting for characters like Percy and Grover is decent.

Good Story, Mediocre Narration

the narrator doesn’t always seem to know what he’s reading, and is occasionally off key (emotionally). he also tends towards stereotyping the voices of non-caucasian characters; particularly asians and latinos.
