[Book Review] The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus #1)

ImageJudul : The Lost Hero

Penulis : Rick Riordan

Penerbit : Mizan Fantasy

Buku pertama Rick Riordan yang saya baca ini tidak mengecewakan saya. Sudut pandang yang berbeda beda, petualangan yang seru yang ‘dibumbui’ dengan mitologi dan humor dalam ceritanya membuat saya asyik membacanya.

Jason, Piper dan Leo adalah demigod, keturunan dewa–atau anak dewa. Mereka ‘terdampar’ di Perkemahan Blasteran seusai melawan Roh Badai. Karena sebuah ramalan, mereka harus menjalani misi membebaskan Hera–Dewi Pelindung Pernikahan dalam mitologi Yunani–atas perintah Dewi tersebut. Mereka juga harus membebaskan ayah Piper dari Porphyrion, Raja Raksasa dan mencari Pak Pelatih Hedge, satyr pembimbing mereka yang hilang dalam pertempuran melawan Roh Badai.

Saya suka dengan hampir semua karakter yang ada di buku ini. Mulai dari Pak Pelatih Hedge, Aeolus–Dewa Angin–yang mendengarkan suara angin lewat earphone dan melakukan siaran cuaca di saluran TV Olympus untuk Dewa Dewi setiap 8 menit sekali,  Drew Tanaka–anak dari Dewi Cinta, Aphrodite–yang merupakan Kepala Konselor Pondok Aphrodite yang semena mena.

“Aku Cal!” geram si lembu. Dia kelihatan sangat berbangga diri, seolah dia telah menghabiskan banyak waktu untuk menghafal kalimat itu.

“Itu kependekan dari Calais,” kata si Dewa Cinta. “Sayangnya, saudaraku tidak bisa mengucapkan kata kata yang panjang–”

“Pizza! Hoki! Habisi!” tukas Cal.

“–termasuk namanya sendiri,” pungkas si Dewa Cinta. (Hal. 212)

Rating for this book : 8,2/10

The first book of Rick Riordan that I read. And I’m not dissapointed. The different point of view and exciting adventure that ‘seasoned’ with mythology and humor makes me enjoyed reading this book.

Jason, Piper and Leo are demigods, son of God. They are stranded in the Camp Half-Blood after a battle against Hurricane Spirit. Because of a prophecy, they must undergo a mission of liberating Hera-The Greek Goddess of air, familial love, heaven, marriage, motherhood, and women. They also should free Piper’s father from Porphyrion, A King Giant and look for Mr. Coach Hedge, their satyr which was lost in the battle against Hurricane Spirit.

I like almost all the characters in this book. Starting from Mr. Coach Hedge, The Wind God, Aeolus, who was listened the sound of the wind through the earphones and had his own live broadcast on TV channels for Gods of Olympus for every 8 minutes, and Drew Tanaka-a daughter of the Goddess of Love, Aphrodite, the Head Counselor of Aphrodite Cabin who was arbitrary.
