Percy Jackson & The Olympians - The Lightning Thief (2005)

Post by Wert Ac on Mon Jan 25, 2010 6:57 pm



(By Rick Riordan, as if you couldn't tell by the picture :3 )

One of my favorite books of all time. Its the first of a 5 books about a boy in modern times that finds out that Greek gods are real, and that he is a demigod son of Poseidon.

A movies coming out February 12th, "from the director of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's stone" [/commercial]. So if you haven't read it, READ IT (*forum needs angry face*), and I will be a very happy wert :3 .

Description the back of the book gives you:
Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. and that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zues's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.

Now percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to a warring mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.

I didn't really like this book. It was a little too... kiddish. I also probably didn't like it because we had to read it for school and write essays about it. For me, it was average.

I read the first one first because I needed it for a book report, and I astonishingly liked that one better than the first, and I wasn't forced to read the first one lol. Its sort of like the harry potter books, where it books more adult between books, the first one being the most childish.

Also, all the influence from Greek mythology helped me become a Wertist :3 .
