Discover the stories of the Greek Gods from Percy Jackson’s point of view in Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Greek Gods.

Summary of the Book

Percy Jackson didn’t originally like being the son of Poseidon. He warmed up to the idea later, given its perks. However, he came to realize that the gods are a strange bunch, their stories are usually told by god-fearing mortal bards who don’t really know them that well. In this book, Percy tells the story of the gods from his point of view. Hilariously critical of their actions and their temperaments, Percy reveals how Zeus became the head honcho, and how Kronos ate one of his own kids. He also reveals how Athena burst out of another god’s head, quite literally. In plain monochrome, Percy takes readers back into the Homeric world we all know, but he shows us that no one knows it like the son of a god.

About Rick Riordan

Rick Riordan is an American writer. He is best known for his series Tres Navarre and Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

Riordan graduated from the University of Texas. The Percy Jackson series was adapted into two films of a supposedly planned trilogy. The films starred Logan Lerman as the titular character.

THE BOOK

I’ve imagined this in my head so many times.

I’ve always thought about what I would say;

what I would do, and how it would all turn out to be.

And every time I would remove some detail …

She’s a flight attendant—young, bright and living her dream. He’s a heartbroken singer on his way to becoming big.

She’s an ardent fan of his. He can’t imagine why and yet seems to find comfort in her words.

are spending together lasts and lasts …

In the world of imperfection, there is always someone just right for you.

Cobalt Blue by Sachin Kundalkar

"Cobalt Blue" is about love. It is about strangers who break and heal hearts. It is about love and it is longing. It is about the sensation of not getting what you want. Of getting it but not getting it completely. How do you then define those emotions? Do they have a voice at all? Tanay and Anuja are siblings. Both smitten by the tenant who comes to stay over. The tenant who is nameless throughout the book. He is the sort of person who will only break your heart. You are aware of it and yet you want to be loved by him, in whatever capacity. There is another brother in the family. There are parents. There are relatives and yet all attention is wanted only by that stranger.

Review by Nishant Nischal

The book is aptly managed and narrates almost every match and series played by the master. While for someone who has followed cricket (and Sachin in particular) rather closely will find it very amusing recalling those wonderful years and events, it may become a little tiring for the rest going through the nuances of each and every series, the pitch conditions, the climate, the balls that kept low or bounced extra, etc, etc Yet, the book also contains many facts from Master's personal life that happened outside the cricket ground and is very interesting to read.
