Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Last Olympian
Transcript of Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Last Olympian
By: Rick Riordan
The setting takes place in Manhattan, New York. It is present day from August 12th to the 18th of August, which is Percy's birthday.
The theme of this book is to trust your instincts and don't second guess yourself.
Vocabulary From the Book
Oracle: A person, or in this case mummy, that can tell of great prophecies.
Thank You For Exploring!!
The setting had a major effect on the story. For one thing, it gave Percy an edge in fights because he knows the city well. After all, he was born there and lived there his entire life. He could stratagize better by knowing the streets and buildings. He was also closer to water in Manhattan, so it gave him more strength. If the setting were in a different place, it wouldn't make much of a difference because all Percy has to do is turn 16 just as the prophecy says. Plus Kronos, the Titan Lord, would just attack the place where Olympus is the strongest, New York.
Setting's effect on Mood
The mood of the story is engaging. The author, Rick Riordan, keeps his readers interested in the book, always wanting more. The setting helped create the mood. Rick Riordan placed unexpected events in certain places. These events could not have happened if the setting was in a different place.
Luke is an antagonist. He is also a dynamic character. In the beginning, he is on Kronos's side, the evil side. At the end of the book, he realizes he needs to be on Percy's side. He dies saving Camp Half-Blood, The Gods of Olympus, Percy, and Annabeth's life. He turned to the upstanding side, Camp Half-Blood, and had a substantial change.
Annabeth is a protagonist. She is also a static character. Her thoughts and actions do not change throughout the story. She is always on Percy's side, Camp Half-Blood, and will protect it no matter what.
Grover is a static character. He does not change. Grover is always trying to restore and save nature. He sets out to reinstate the world.
The type of currency Mount Olympus uses.

Percy Jackson is a protagonist. He is also a dynamic character. He learns to trust himself and not second guess his opinion.
"She took off down Half-Blood Hill and I sprinted after her. For once, I didn't look back."
This shows he had second guessed himself in the past, but now he knows it's all okay; he doesn't look back.
Percy and Bekendorf, a fellow member of Camp Half-Blood, go aboard Luke's ship. Percy escapes but Bekendorf dies. Percy finds out his father is fighting a battle underwater . Percy then finds out from an Oracle there is a prophecy stating on his 16th birthday either he will destroy or save Olympus. Percy gets tricked by Nico to go into the Underworld. Then Hades , Nico's father, traps Percy. Later, Nico betrays his father and saves Percy. Then after escaping Percy bathes in the River Styx and gets Achillie's powers including his weakness. He goes into battle to try to stop Kronos, Titan leader, from desroying the world.
Percy's character ties into the theme. He has always second guessed himself. For example, during an important decision on whether or not to have a truce in the war, he second guessed his team's strength. The decision has an effect on the ending.
