I grew up with Greek Mythology. An one of my pet peeves is mixing the Greek Athena with the Roman Athena and the whole Medusa story. The Medusa story Riordan introduces is not the one I grew up with. Thus, it annoys me. I like how he dealt with the Isis, Ra, and Set trinity and all the different/same stories about them.
