Dear Mr. Rick Riordan:
You never fail to engage me.
It has been years since I last read Edith Hamilton’s Mythology, which is one of my comfort books. I may have read it countless times but, every time I go through the book again, it always feels like a new experience. That is why, when I began to flip through Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods, it felt like a refresher course—complete with sarcasm and theories—on a well-loved book.
While Greek Gods isn’t huge on details as Mythology is, I am certain there is reason for it. And thank you for making Percy be mindful of the details that he could divulge, including warnings. It’s wonderful to know that responsibility for and influence toward young readers is priority for you.
Personally, I would love to read more of your spin on those tales. But of course, you have your hands full, what with the finishing of “The Heroes of Olympus” series and the start of new one, “Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard”.
Thank you for giving mythology a refreshing take.
Please tell Mr. John Rocco that his art is really awesome. I wish you two would collaborate more. And I just bought The Blood of Olympus today. Another adventure starts for me. And as soon as now, I thank you for it.
