Hello to the person reading this! My assignment for today was to write a one to write about a favorite book I have read or write about a good movie I have watched. This one is kinda hard for me, since I have multiple favorite movies and books. But I guess I’ll kind of be choosing both, sort of. I’m comparing my favorite book Percy Jackson, to the two movies that were made based off of the books. Warning, there are gonna be some spoilers if you haven’t read the books and you want to read the books. There are some spoilers, so just a heads up.
Now, everyone knows that books are always better than movies, although, I have to say the Harry Potter movies were good, it’s been a while since I’ve read the books, but anyway, they’re good. So I watched the Percy Jackson movies before I read the books and I loved the movies. That was until I read the books! Now, I love the books more than the movies! As in I no longer like the movies, I get it some people like the movies. But me and a friend just have a lot of problems with the movies.
It doesn’t give me the same feeling like it does when I’m reading the books. I don’t even know how to describe the feeling I get when I read the books, but it just isn’t the same. In the movies the second movie and the second book are different, the people who made the movie mixed a certain part in the last book with the second movie the Titan, Kronos came back, in the last book. In the second movie Kronos came back, it bugs me that they did that! There’s a lot more, I could tell, you. But I guess I should tell you what the book is about. There’s three different series, all of them written by American author Rick Riordan. The first one is called Percy Jackson and the Olympians aka PJO. Is about how Percy discovers that he is demigod, a demigod is half God half mortal. He goes on quests, the main enemy they have to fight is Kronos. The second series is called The Heroes of Olympus, Roman and Greek demigods must learn to work together in order to defeat Gaea the earth goddess. And the third series, called Trials of Apollo, I’ve barely gotten into that book yet so I don’t have that much information on it yet.
