  1. This is a fantastic series on the myths I love myths and I think fantasy is basically the genre of myths and myth making I love the art and I love the lens George brings to each god in the family How interesting to get a story from their understanding and view.I appreciate the story about Athens and the contest to see which god would win Poseidon wants to be loved and he brings the people water, yet it s salt water, so not useable so they choose Athena to be the patron of the city due to her gif [...]


  2. We re always thrilled when our books hit the New York Times Best Seller list, but we re particularly thrilled to have this happen for George O Connor s Poseidon George s Olympians series are really wonderful books about the Greek myths, and they really only get better as demonstrated by the NYTimes Best Seller list This story of Poseidon is similar in structure to the third book, Hera, in that it focuses on the Greek heroes as well as the gods themselves.Also there are lots of monsters Including [...]


  3. Really didn t like this one It basically boils down to Poseidon the king of jerks and his jerks family being bitter and envious Maybe that s why their eyes are green We get Odysseus s and Theseus s stories with this one, but no one comes off as particularly heroic in these stories Everyone just seems terrible.


  4. I still don t know how I feel about Poseidon Or the fact that he seems to have a crazy Fu Manchu mustache going on in this books He kind of comes across as a bitter guy here, which may have something to do with the fact that he seems to be constantly losing to the other gods and all his kids turn out to be monsters Which would probably get frustrating after a while.A few of his monstrous kids get listed in a couple panels and Polyphemus and Theseus each get their own story I actually don t think [...]


  5. This one has to get 5 stars The last few pages of his story are so beautifully told and drawn, I had it give it the golden rating It s almost heartbreaking when you read this entire life he thought he lived, only for it to be revealed that it was a dream It makes him a relatable character That s not to say he s likable He s a grade A asshole and so are most of his offspring But O Connor got under my skin and that s why so far, this is my favorite of the Olympians series.


  6. I thought that George O Connor s version of Poseidon is quite interesting I have never pictured him as such a angry person, but it is explained throughout the book I can see how he could be since he was raised alongside Hades in the darkness of Kronos s body This book was a bit different than the rest of the series Poseidon narrates his own story, so it is told in first person Poseidon shapes his story starting with the creation of the realms then goes into his struggle for power and finally wit [...]


  7. Volume 5 in the Olympians series is told in Poseidon s voice This is a good choice as Poseidon is a difficult god to understand His moods are forever changing as unpredictable as the tides of the sea He is angry and powerful and makes for a compelling read Poseidon takes readers through the process that granted him reign over the sea and explains his hatred of Odysseus There is a refrain that appears many times in the book the reads And my children have always tended to be monstrous which he use [...]


  8. George O Connor s series Olympians tells the stories of the different major gods and goddesses of Olympus and the stories of their children and blessed In the fifth edition, Poseidon Earth Shaker , O Connor delves into the stories of the Sea God himself Readers learn of his quarrel with Odysseus, his monstrous children including the cyclops Polyphemus and Pegasus, and his son Theseus Slayer of the Minotaur , as well as his grudge against Athena and their attempt to overthrow Zeus with Hera Fans [...]


  9. The comic I read was The Mystery of Mary Rogers by Rick Geary This comic was about a girl during the summer of 1841 who disappeared without a trace from her house in New York 3 days later her body was found floating in a river The story goes back in time to capture Mary s story and the how some women back in that time used sexual opportunities, among other things, to get ahead in life One of my favorite things they do in this comic is how they illustrate people s faces I personally didn t get in [...]


  10. When I finished this book, I said to myself, Poseidon is a really hard character to understand And then I read George O Connor s author s notes, and he said pretty much the same thing The author s notes really helped me to understand the book better, and they sent me back into the book to re read some parts.The sequence when Theseus, Poseidon s son, goes into the labyrinth to kill the minotaur is absolutely brilliant.


  11. Rating 5George O Connor s Olympian stories are just amazing I am so impressed with all of the art and the way he tells a story I love how all the stories have their own personality with them and you can tell that they are different by the way it is written and Poseidon s story is no different I loved the retelling of some major Greek Mythology and I cannot wait for the next book.




  12. More melancholy than O Connor s previous offerings, this work focuses on several different stories Odysseus Perseus mostly A good view of an often overlooked Olympian.




  13. really short and sweet kind of book I think you could read in an hour just straight reading so if you need to pass around 30 minutes of time then this is the book for you


  14. Reading Log 1So in this new book we will be talking about Poseidon and his beautiful adventure Poseidon is a very interesting god He can do so many things Of course he had many affairs and many kids He is mostly known for The Earth Shaker He is known for his mostly known symbol which is the trident Most famous animals that he is known for are the dolphin, horse, and bull He had a really terrible father and a terrible childhood In the begging of the book they only talk about Poseidon spent his ch [...]


  15. As the fourth born son of the Titans Kronos and Rhea, Poseidon is one of the mysterious gods Like the element he rules, he is a shapeshifter He presides over most of the earth and rests in the dark depths where no man can live and no sunlight can pierce He s almost as impenetrable as his elder brother Hades, yet far mercurial, given the element that he ultimately came to rule.Mr O Connor paints the pages of this book in cool, blue hued palettes for the most part, reflecting Poseidon s domain I [...]


  16. Poseidon Earth Shaker is about Poseidon and how he became the god of the sea This volume is also about his children, Theseus and his story Frankly Theseus is a dick He freaking left Ariadne at that island Who does that Especially after she helped him to defeat the Minotaur.We also meet the cyclops that Odysseus blinded who also happens to be Poseidon s child We also hear a little about Odysseus too.So far this isn t my most favorite volume, however, it s still good It continues with the story of [...]


  17. This one s a little different, it s first person pretty much the whole way through, and you don t see as much of the humanizing effect like the other gods Poseidon stays an enigma, one of unknowable depths and barely felt undercurrents There is the feeling that this is just a flash of light in the darkness, enough to get a sense of the being there but not enough to make sense of it And personally, I think that s on the nose than the other books are Poseidon will not be reduced to a pithy saying [...]


  18. Probably the best volume so far Well, as usual is not about Poseidon, but rather about his sons the monstrous they are, the better And I m not talking only about appearances it appears that the monstrous of them all is the hero Theseus who kills the Minotaur, forgets his wife and forgets to put white flags on his ship to announce to his father that he was alive Then there s Polyphemus and Odysseus and in the end there s a fight Athena, Poseidon and Hera on one side and Zeus on the other But ap [...]


  19. The book explained to me the story of Poseidon and his life as a Greek god the book showed me how Poseidon had an impact on the Olympians and how he ruled the seas I liked the book because it gave a basic overview of what Poseidon did in his life and how he affected the greeks the book tells very basic information and the title doesn t make sense because he ruled the water but it is called earth shaker.


  20. Contains the myth of Odysseus and Polyphemos the cyclops son of Poseidon, the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur how the Aegean Sea was named, and how the city of Athens came under athena s patronage how Greece got olive oil.These stories are well woven seeing as myths of Poseidon are so scattered This book helps to tie together the loose ends of the god of the sea.


  21. This one was a little harder to get into than others in the series, a problem O Connor himself had, and describes in the backmatter Poseidon is weird Still, a strong entry in the series, just not advised as the first book anyone should read It all makes sense of one starts with Zeus.Library copy.


  22. Another great entry in the Olympians series This graphic novel not only tells the story of Poseidon but also the Minotaur, Ariadne, Polyphemus, and Theseus I liked Poseidon s repeated line about having monstrous children


  23. This on was written differently than the others It takes on the point of view as Poseidon himself In a way, I found myself relating to him and almost felt pity for him as well.


  24. I liked this book because I like Greek mythology I also liked this book because I like playing in the water.


  25. Very interesting and very hard to put down I read this book because the current unit in Social studies is Greece I liked the book because it was very well explained.


  26. There s a lot going on in this one, but not necessarily in a bad way A few of the stories may be question for young readers though Heh.
