      I agree with butterfly. This book series rock, and you should try reading it again, to see if you appears interesting in another try. :)

      Just because you don’t like a series doesn’t mean you have to say you hate it, right? I mean, I don’t like Harry Potter but I never said it stinks.

    1) Neptune
    2) When he was on his school fied trip to the museum and he got mad at this girl for picking on grover.
    3) Medusa
    4) Poseidon- Neptune
    Zeus- Jupiter
    Hades- Pluto
    5) First off it should always be to the west of olympus. Hades was an outcast to his family so he probably wanted to be as far as he could be, while still in western civilization.
    6) Percy stabbed Ares in the heel. This is a refrence to Achilles, who was said to be invincible exept for in one spot; His hee.

    1. Neptune
    2. When Percy is fighting with kids during his first day at Camp Half-Blood and he is able to spray water on them.
    3. Medusa
    4. Neptune (Poseidon), Pluto (Hades), Jupiter (Zeus).
    5. It’s where all the Hollywood drama is going on, and many famous people die (and live) in Hollywood, so it’s a shorter journey to the Underworld.
    6. Percy stabbed him in the heel, and the classic reference is to Achilles’ Heel, which is used as a metaphor for someone’s weakness.

    5) It’s the opposite city of New York, which is where Olympus is. Something like that, anyway.
    6) Heel and Achilles? I’m guessing.
