The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1)  by Rick Riordan


Review: I know that it’s bad that I ve never read this series before or till now, as everyone is telling me with horrified looks on their faces. But I finally got my hands on the first book and really liked it and can’t wait to read more of the series.

I have no real excuse as to why it has taken me so long to get this series, but I will say I have not heard much talk about it till the past couple of years.

I had a great time reading The Lightning Thief, and going on the cool adventures with Percy and his friends. I can’t wait to throw this book at my younger sister to read because well, its that good and fun.

4 out of 5 stars.

377 pages. Paperback.

Summary: Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can’t seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse—Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy’s mom finds out, she knows it’s time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he’ll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends—one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena—Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.
