The Sea of Monsters (Riordan)

Well, we finished #2, and the series is still going strong. Riordan mixes suspense and mythology in a way that’s keeping all of us entranced. Tyson was a big hit with our family, and we’re moving on to The Titan’s Curse.

A few quibbles. I’m not sure why Beckendorf is black when he doesn’t identify the race of any other characters. So is the default / normal = white?

Also, shame on Disney and Hyperion for terrible editing. Just because the series is popular and you wanted to get out the movie edition (awful cover, by the way) doesn’t mean you should stop paying attention to line edits.
