IF YOU WANT THE REVIEW SKIP TO THE BOTTOM (TOP IS MY THOUGHTS O THE GAY THING)
Here it is,my little speech-I`m going to start with the kids.Seriously?People stopped liking this series because one character-one character-is gay?My gosh.First of all,yeah it was neccesary to make Nico gay,and yeah it did fit the plot.If you have decided to stop liking this awesome series because of like two pages,thats sad and immature.There are gay people in the world!My BFF actually started loving it as much as I when this installmet came out,because guess what?She`s gay!My cousins gay!My aunts` (twin,16) are both gay!Get over it.And another thing-this is for the parents-I am astonished that you won`t let your children read it because one person is gay,and give the book one star because of those two pages.You keep on saying that you should talk to the child,and all that other stuff but don`t you guys realize we know what gay is,and most of us actually don`t care,and handled it well,while you all are like oh he`s gay your children shouldn`t read about it.I always try hard not to judge when I read other people`s opinion but this is not ok.I`d have thought parents,of all people,would realize there are gays in the world and we shouldn`t discriminate them,and definitely not teach children to ignore them or judge them just because their gay.Parents,Rick Riordan was a teacher.That`s why he made him gay,because he knew how some people refuse to accept that.He says he had gay studets who felt horrible because of how people treated them.There is nothing inappropriate about these series,and if when you`re done reading the reviews, most of which talk about the gay thing,you still want to read the book,I applaud to you,for not caring.I applaud to Rick Riordan,who`s books prove you don`t have to be straight,or a boy,or even have no dissabilities to be a hero.
Really quickly ,there is no violence or anything that scared me or shaked me badly in this book,but,as always,you know yourselfes best.There are some really great,noble role models,and I wouldn`t be concered about swearing,like,at all.There is educational value,and while some people will think that makes the book borig trust me,it doesn`t.You should also read it in order or you`ll never understand what`s going on.It`s a series of five and the first one is the Lost Hero.If you haven`t already,read the Percy Jackson series,which comes before the heroes of olympus.They are really good.Sorry if I bored you with gay rights,but yeah,I had to say all that.So if you don`t like it DEAL WITH IT.I`m good now.
