Evaluation

I would recommend this novel to my friends. I think it's a good book. Several of them would probably like it too. The book overall was very good. It made sense throughout the whole book. Some questions you have were answered later. It makes it very gripping. Percy had to make choices. I can connect to that. Also he had friends betray him which i can connect to.
