The Titans Curse
Book by:Rick Ridoran Presentation by:Dayton Hoffmann
One example of characterization is when Percy describes himself as an impulsive, ADHD kid. This describes Percy as the type of person who acts without thinking about the consequences.
Another example is where Percy insists that he must hold the sky, knowing that he may not be strong enough. That shows he is very brave and determined to save Olympus.
Also, an example is where Athena is talking to Percy about his fatal flaw. Athena tells him his fatal flaw is personal loyalty. This suggests Percy would risk his life for friends, loves ones, and things that are important to him.
In conclusion, the main character, Percy, in The Titans Curse, is shown who he is in many ways through characterization.
In the book, The Titans Curse, there are many examples of figurative language. One example is at the part where Percy is having a dream about a man who had captured his friend Annabeth. The author writes "but this voice was deeper and lower, like a base guitar." This is figurative language (simile) because it compares two unlike things with "like" or "as". I chose this example because the description of his voice makes him sound scary and dangerous.
Another strong example of figurative language is where Grover suggests they should go over the mountain but Percy, knowing Thalia is afraid of heights, suggests they go around the mountain rather than climb it. The author writes "her eyes said a quick thank you." This is figurative language because it gives her eyes the ability to talk. I chose this example because the author uses personification to show Thalia's gratitude.
Also, the author uses figurative language when Athena is talking to Percy about his fatal flaw. The author writes "my heart crept into my throat." This is figurative language because he uses an idiom to describe how nervous Percy is. I chose this example because it describes how Percy is feeling when Athena tells him his fatal flaw.
In conclusion, there were many examples of figurative language in the book The Titans Curse.
