    My 10 year old Grandson wanted to start reading the Percy Jackson series of books, so I bought him the first book, The Lightning Thief He started to read it then I saw that he had put it aside When I asked him whether he was enjoying it, he told me that he thought it was a bit scary for him at the moment He is a sensitive soul, so we put it on the Bookshelf until he feels he can read it in the future.


    This series is playing on greek mythology, a topic which i personally have been infatuated with since i was 10 The writer, Rick Riordan, my favorite author, wrote about children of the gods, gave them ADHD and dyslexia, which made me feel like my disability is a super power The story is intense, with highly relatable characters and a intresting plot full of twists and turns, all while twisting an ancient mythology into the modern era, very successfully, i might add The only think thats terrible about the percy jackson series is the movies, which do not follow the plot, have half the depth and skip out on than half the content Book wise 10 10 Highly reccomended, suitable for all ages, recommended for children with ADHD and dyslexia to teach them that its not always a disability and that they can accomplish anything with willpower and determination Truely inspiring

    Percy Jackson has always been different He struggles to fit in, is easily distracted from school work, can t control his temper, and things just keep getting worse when his pre algebra teacher turns into a monster and tries to kill him When his mother discovers what happened, she realises she can longer protect Percy from the secrets she has kept from him his entire life She has no choice but to take him to camp Half blood, a summer camp for demigods Yes that s right, Percy s estranged father just so happens to be a god But not just any god, he s one of the big three Zeus, Poseidon and Hades but his existence sets in motion a series of events that threaten to start a war between them Can Percy prevent this from happening And so begins his first quest.Why have I waited so long to read this Because I m there, I get it, buy me a T shirt, and sign me up to the fandom already My only regret about this book is, why didn t I read it sooner I loved the way Riordan makes Greek mythology relevant to the present day It was really interesting to see how he updated these stories as they have such a wealth of possibility, which believe me, he uses it to his full advantage Riordan has created a rich world with a fast paced adventure that still stays true to the original premise just with a whole host of new and loveable characters.So don t let the age range put you off, it doesn t read like it s intended audience, just good fantasy fiction.If you liked this review visit

    Percy thinks he s an ordinary boy well, kind of normal anyway He gets kicked out of a lot of schools and seems to attract trouble, but he s a good kid really It s just a pity his teachers can t see that What most of them also can t see as well however is his half blood status When his maths teacher turns out to be a demon in disguise hell bent on killing him him however, things take a decidedly weird turn As it happens, Percy is a demi god and he finds this out just in time to be try and stop a three fold Olympian war between his dad, Hades and Zeus.This is a exceptionally entertaining read with wonderful characters and an action filled plot It s funny and it s exciting and I can see why these books made such a splash in the children s literature world In the way of some of the best children s books, it hides that it is actually quite educational by being great fun.

    Im a mad Harry Potter fan and have read the books so many times I cant count anyway sent me this as a recomendation based on my interests so I googled it and found that a lot of people who were HP fans had ordered it and enjoyed it so I got it I have really enjoyed reading it so far The story is based around a 12 year old lad called Percy who discovers he is a demi god and his adventures around retrieving a thunder bolt that belongs to Zeus which has been stolen apparently by Hadesgod of the underworld The other reviews are correct when they say the story line is a little predictable but its well written and perfect for the age range its written for 12 upwards Its nice easy reading and trots along at a good steady pace Its no JK Rowling book but if you are having withdrawal symptoms from this kind of adventure story and greek mythology is an interest it may just fill the void I will be ordering other in the series.

  6. Customer Customer says:

    Apart from it being an excellent read which it is, the story telling is wonderful and linear, the charecters are well written and you see the world through the eyes of a 12 year old boy who is forced on an adventure the quality of the book is great The paper is good and thick, the print is very legible and it is clear This book is worth a lot than one would expect from the low price tag.Regards,A happy bookworm

    Percy Jackson uma tima srie indicada para para o pblico infanto juvenil.A escrita bem fluida e o livro bem instigante, ajudando a despertar o interesse das crian as por histria e mitologia grega.As 4 estrelas s o por causa da compara o inegvel com Harry Potter, que na minha opini o ganha de lavada por conta do enredo, constru o de de personagens e mitologia prpria Se n o fosse isso, levaria 5 estrelas.Um adendo a qualidade do material bem fraquinha A edi o paper back tem a capa mais mole e fina do que estamos acostumados no Brasil e o miolo parece feito com jornal.P.S o nvel de ingl s n o difcil At iniciantes pode ler parando de quando em quando para dar uma procurado no significado de uma palavra.

    This first book in Percy Jackson and the Olympian series revolved around 12 year old Percy Jackson, his quest of finding the lightening bolt, and save the world from wrath of gods It was about friendship, adventure and belonging ness.Characters This book has most incredible characters, campers, gods and specially protagonist, Percy.I always loved tone of Percy, even after rereading the book Being Dyslexic and having ADHD was not easy for Percy In the beginning it made him frustrated but these flaws were the best characteristics as a half blood I like how author turned the learning disability of an ordinary character into extraordinary battle trait of a hero He was reckless, smart mouth, witty boy and I admired his courage His emotions, anger, frustration, and his reactions in particular situation came out naturally Taking his revenge from God and sending Medusa s head to Olympus as gift surely requires guts and Percy had lots of it He was quite developed for 12 year old and that made this book enjoyable even for an adult He was addictive character that will grow on you pretty fast.Annabeth was my second best character in whole Percy Jackson series She was true daughter of Athena Clever, wise, fierce, and always had plan I liked to read her part of story on how she reached to camp half blood, how her relation was with her father.Grover and food goes together His appetite was humongous This satyr was fun to read First he looked timid, late bloomer satyr but friendship with Percy developed him and his courageous in the end He was definitely best searcher among him kin.what I liked I didn t remember many things and I mixed the book with movie which had some scenes different than the book Rereading this book was definitely nostalgic Rereading Percy Jackson reminded me why I so loved this series and Rick Riordan Book was first person narrative from Percy s view point and his witty and sassy nature and unique voice made the book humorous and entertaining.I loved the plot of the book when I read it first time 3 years back Even after rereading I found it interesting and adventurous Percy, an ordinary kid just got to know his dad is one the powerful Greek God and then was accused of stealing lightening bolt of Zeus, the mightiest god of Olympus To prove his innocence and to stop the petty quarrel of God that may cause WWIII, he was assigned a quest to return the bolt back to Olympus.His quest turned out most adventurous and was full of twist and turns Fighting Minotaur, the furies, Echidna and chimera, and in fact a God,,, Medusa s garden, tunnel of love, enchanting hotel and body stretching waterbed shop, darkness of underworld, and spellbinding Olympus on the top of the Empire State Building It was amazing, adventurous ride packed with humor.World created was unique The camp half blood at Long Island was most eye catching place Its description was so lifelike that I felt like roaming through its cabins, arena, mess hall and headquarter Greek mythology was heart of the book What I loved most was description of Gods as per the western civilization It was amusing to know them from Percy s perspective It was like learning Greek mythology in fun way.Amazing lightening pace I admit, first few chapters were little slow, can be clueless for first time readers as lot of things were happening all of sudden in Percy s life But as soon as Percy arrives at half blood camp, book picked up the speed at top gear I finished this book in two days If I don t have to feed my girl and change her nappies I would have finished it in one sitting.Ships Friendship between Percy, Grover and Annabeth was heartwarming Annabeth and Percy didn t go along at first because of their parent s famous dispute but as they went further with quest their friendship grew warmer This trio was one of the best in YA fantasy books and I could see why it was compared to Harry Porter s ship Their know each other scenes were written with realistic touch.Rick Riordan is God of twist and turns and cliffhanger Every chapter ended with creative twist and a suspense that keep you turning pages There was so many surprising elements in the book Climax was brilliant and last chapter was just mind blowing.why 4.5 stars Just minor issue because I felt it when I read the book first time and on rereading as well Too much was happening in first few chapters till Percy reached Camp half blood and was determined that made me go slow in book.Overall I enjoyed book once again It was entertaining, exciting, adventurous, action packed book full of mythology Those who enjoys MG, YA books will definitely love to read this.

  12. Kei Kei says:

    It was my first read of Greek mythology and I must say it wasn t disappointing Rick Riordan s amazing writing pulls you into the story I m guilty of watching the Percy Jackson movie first, which kind of ruined some of the epic moments for me I had a wonderful experience reading this mythological masterpiece The book packed a solid punch which is totally missing in the movie.

  13. Indhumathi Indhumathi says:

    I am a person who was totally unaware of greek mythology before picking this book up So I wasn t familiar with the world that this book is set in On account of this, it took me a lot of time to get into the book Nevertheless the book was a joy ride once the quest started Totally worth speaking this book up since this series is so awesome I write this review as I am done with all the books in the series.
