    4.5 starsCome closer, my dear muggles. Sorceress Medea Natalie will share with you her standard potion for a Greek mythology hero story. Very simple recipe, but disastrous to get wrong.If you're up for brewing the diverse formula, you will require:-Scorched bones born of incest-A dash of tragedy juice. The more bitter, the better-Live monsters. Two or more should suffice. Poisonous fangs and inhuman strength adds to the potency of your potion -Royalty cream-An impossible quest egg. Crack it, so [...]

    "Es muy duro superar cuando alguien a quien amas muere. Créeme, he perdido algunos buenos amigos. Y, aún así, la mayoría de nosotros aprendemos a seguir adelante. Muchos de nosotros no tenemos opción"."When somebody you love dies, it's a hard thing to get over. Believe me, I've lost some good friends. Still most of us learn to keep going. Most of us have no choice".Creo que nunca encontraré algo más divertido que leer a Rick Riordan contando cómo Perseo derrotó a Medusa, o esa vez en la [...]

  • Anne Goldschrift

    Das ist wahrscheinlich absolute Geschmackssache, aber mir haben die Göttersagen noch ein bisschen besser gefallen als die Heldensagen :) Ich hoffe sehr, dass er solche Bücher auch aus den anderen Mythenwelten der Welt schreibt :)

    I seriously miss Percy's narration. It's just so genuinely funny (it's kind of hard to believe that the person behind this authentically teenage sounding voice is a 50 year old man haha)Probably the only bad thing about the book is that it's so damn heavy! My shoulders hurt from holding the book up lol (although admittedly that also could just be because I have zero muscle bulk)RatingsOverall: 10/10Writing: 5/5Narrative Voice/Entertainment: 5/5Illustrations: 5/5Cover: 5/5

  • Raoofa Ibrahim

    what a book!! non-fiction book but with a few fictional details ------In this book Rick or Percy(it's the same :P) will tell us about 12 heroes in their way 1)Perseus: Son of Zeus, best known as the one who killed Medusa2)Psyche: being beautiful can be a curse, especially if people starts calling you Aphrodite! the only way to destroy her in Aprodite's opinion is to make her fall in love with an ugly, filthy man, so Eros will do this job for his mom. *Beauty and the beast came from this myth3)Ph [...]

    4.5Rick's books, man!They never cease to make me laugh!Some of the sentences are pure funny, while others are simply ridiculous you just have to laugh!The sarcasm is ever present! He really lays it on thick, but I was cracking up most of the time! So it worked :DTake some of these chapter titles:Theseus Slays the Mighty--Oh, Look! A Bunny Rabbit!Cyrene Punches a Lion (No Actual Lions Were Harmed in the Making of This Myth)Jason Finds a Rug That Really Ties the Kingdom TogetherThe chapter titles [...]

  • Darren Hagan

    This book was so freaking good!! I was a bit dubious going into it considering I don't know a huge amount of Greek heroes, but the stories were told in such a funny and engaging way that it didn't really matter that I didn't know the heroes. It was literally "laugh out loud" funny. It was also really educational, and the humour just made it fun to learn. Obviously it's a middle grade series, so Riordan uses a lot of modern references to keep the intended audience interested, such as saying that [...]

    Some legends say that Hera’s breast milk sprayed across the sky und created the Milky Way. I don’t know. That seems like a whole lot of solar systems from just one squirt.It’s breaking my heart to give only two stars to this book.I love Percy Jackson, I Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods are one of my favorite books and I am a big fan Rick Riordan because he makes me laugh everytime I read his books BUT Greek Heroes were so boring. I put the book down like three times and rather read another boo [...]

  • Mira

    Reading this took me a while but now I've done it and it was awesome. I personally loved the Greek Gods more but it's because it had more weird and intriguing stuff going on because, well, it focused on the gods. Percy's narrative was great once again, I got a good laugh of all the mentions of modern stuff thrown into the myths. Orpheus playing "Shake It Off" and the gods getting confused of the time period etc. Hilarious! I really liked Percy's mentions of his friends. Annabeth seems to be arou [...]

    OUR FAVORITE HERO RETURNS!!!!!!What? I'm not talking about Hercules. It's DA PERCY JACKSON IN DA HOUSE!

  • Carlie K

    I would give this book a hundred shining stars if I could!Informative and funny as always.A great introduction to Greek Heroes that appeals to every modern reader.A full review to come.

  • Sesana

    If anything, I think I may have liked Heroes better than Percy Jackson's Greek Gods. That's more do to subject matter than the writing. The heroes in this book lead very exciting lives, and Riordan gives vivid and very detailed retellings of each. I also appreciated the variety he brought. Sure, no book of mythical Greek heroes would be complete without Theseus, Perseus, Jason and Heracles, and they're all in here. But he also includes Otrera and Cyrene, women I'm fairly certain I'd never heard [...]

    Not really in the mood to continue this :(

  • Namratha

    A book about Greek mythology, it's testosterone loaded heroes, their bad decisions, scheming villains, incestuous what-have-yous, murderous lovers, gory monsters, gorier death by aforementioned gory monsters and murderous lovers, homicidal farmyard animals and painful prophecies somehow turns into a bundle of laughs when they get the Rick Riordan treatment.Riordan tells the tales of ancient heroes (and heroines) through the snarky, irreverent voice of our favourite demigod Percy Jackson. And the [...]

  • PaigeBookdragon

    Here's my peace offeringe as much as I love Uncle Rick and Percy, I just have to stop reading this one. Most of the stories in this book has already been read by yours truly in another book. I love Percy's humor and all that but I just find it boring to read a story in which I know the ending.Highly recommended to those pipsqueaks who haven't read Mythology: Timeless Tales of Gods and Heroes yet.

  • Nicka (Read by Nicka)

    MY THOUGHTS:Another amazing book written by Rick Riordan! This book follows Percy Jackson's retelling of stories about Greek Heroes; Perseus, Atalanta, Hercules, Psyche, Theseus and many more. It was fast paced and I just flew through the pages, every story is told in a very humorous way. Never a dull moment to be honest, I was just laughing the whole time, it was fun to read. Rick Riordan gave the stories a modern touch and I should say that he has done a great job, AGAIN!Favorite stories: Psyc [...]

  • Vanessa

    While reading this book, I couldn't stop comparing it to its companion novel, Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods. I'd never read any of the Percy Jackson or Heroes of Olympus series, nothing at all, and yet I loved how the author treated the gods and greek mythology. It was funny and ironic but also very respectful to it. Here, his style really started annoying me. The author was trying too hard to make things funny and it just made me roll my eyes a couple of times. And I even didn't find myself [...]

  • Sara (Freadom Library)

    Again, such a fun mix of entertainment, education and hilarity! A lot slower than Greek Gods and took me longer to finish. But it was great to learn more about the famous Greek Heroes! Though it's not all sunshine and roses

  • Giuseppe

    3.5/4-Simpatico ventaglio sulle avventure di alcuni eroi greci più e meno noti, con l'immancabile simpatia di Percy Jackson.

  • Jocelyn

    This is basically the D'aulaires Book of Greek Myths, illustrations and all, narrated by Percy Jackson. Which adds a hell of a lot more to it than you'd think it would.I've been disappointed by Riordan's works recently, not just in terms of writing but also his handling of Greek mythology, which was subtle, surreal and imaginative in Percy Jackson, but predictable and repetitive in Heroes of Olympus. Riordan would have you believe that every Greek hero or mortal was an egotistic jerk consumed wi [...]
