Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

really enjoyed

I am really enjoying Rick Riordan's stories. I am almost 40 years old but I am finding so much entertainment and enjoyment out of these books created for young readers.
