Book Review: The Hammer of Thor by: Rick Riordan

Before I start I just want to say that I’m sorry that it took so long to get this review out! It’s been a few weeks since I finished this book but I just haven’t been able to write a review! Now as you can see by the title I am reviewing The Hammer of Thor by: Rick Riordan.

spoilers

To start off I’m going to talk about the one thing that really REALLY upset me about this book, Loki. Ever since I saw Thor in 2012 I’ve had a love for Loki (and Tom Hiddleston!) and I’ve always seen him as a slightly bad guy (or misunderstood). It was really hard for me to read this book with Loki being an Asshole because of this. I was hoping that he would be similar to how he was in the first book! I guess I’ll just have to deal with Loki being the main villain in this series.

Other than that small detail, I really liked this book! It had an interesting plot, lots of well-characterized characters, and a lot of diversity! Well, the diversity was a bit of a problem. If you’ve read this book you’ll now that there is a new character, Alex. He/She is a gender fluid teenager. I am totally ok with that it’s just that Rick was trying way too hard to include it. It would have been a lot better if he hadn’t just flat out said that he was gender fluid but if he had included some buildup to it.

All in all, I highly suggest reading this book! I have been reading Rick’s books since I was 8 so seeing that he is still writing decent books 8 years later! I hope you liked this review!

Most of the time this would be the end of the post. But a little while ago it was my 1 year anniversary of this blog! I want to thank you all for how far I’ve come! I hope that as I continue growing you guys will stay with me! now it’s time for my usual ending to my posts!
