I am reading Percy Jackson and the titans curse by Rick Riordan and I believe that the author uses characterization in a very good way. He portrays the characters in unique ways and he also uses different techniques to give life oot the sevral characetr sin the book. fro exmaple in the part where Percy satrts deabting wehter one of the characters is extremely lucky or unfortunate for being the daughter of a god he still finds compassion in his herat to undertand her and he believes that it is important to find a balance between the good and the evil. Also this si shown in another part when he is becoming hesitant about Ananbeth. This is shown by the following quote
“As anxious as I felt about Annabeth—all I wanted to do was search for her—I couldn’t help feeling sorry for the di Angelos. I remembered what it was like for me when I first learned I was a demigod.” Page 30
This qoute shows how the charavters start to develope an identity for themselves and how they are being constructed upon by the author but it also adds another layer of deepness to the story and to the overall characters. This is because like in this quote the characters have to take choices and some may be better than others but in the end they have to choose between some that might be the least bad. Like Percy that becomes hesitant about Annabeth and when he has to choose between two options later on which would either be saving annabeth or trying to save one of the other characters he has to choose the lesser evil.
