Name: Percy Jackson and the lightning thief
Author: Rick Riordan
Genre: Mythology, Fantasy


Rating: 

After getting expelled from yet another school for yet another clash with mythological monsters only he can see, twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is taken to Camp Half-Blood, where he finally learns the truth about his unique abilities: He is a demigod, half human, half immortal. Even more stunning: His father is the Greek god Poseidon, ruler of the sea, making Percy one of the most powerful demigods alive. There's little time to process this news. All too soon, a cryptic prophecy from the Oracle sends Percy on his first quest, a mission to the Underworld to prevent a war among the gods of Olympus.(goodreads)
 

REVIEW:  

 I've never thought i would like mythology books. But i found this book in the library at my school and it looked.....interesting. This was before I got into mythology books of course. So i decided to read it, it was so good i finished it so fast. i couldn't put it down and when i found out the sequel was out i was excited! In here we meet Percy Jackson, a teenager that can't seem to stay in a school for more than a few months, trouble just seems to follow him around. But one day trouble really starts coming back, he starts reading Greek and seems to be seeing...monsters?! Everything goes upside down, his best friend Grover is a satyr, there are Greek monsters trying to kill him, and his father is Poseidon. Because things could not get weirder he is sent to Camp Half-blood, where demigods or children of Gods that are half-gods are trained to stay alive. But there hasn't been a child of the Big three in a long time because of a pact they made, so this is a BIG deal! Worse, someone has stolen Zeus' master bolt and they are blaming it on Percy. So he must team up with Annabeth- daughter of Athena and Grover to find the thief and take the bolt back to Zeus before the solstice. This book is so awesome, it is super popular and a great read. I liked that it was a mix of the modern world and of the myths. The fights happened in streets in front of people but what they saw was nothing like what was really happening! It made me wonder what in the world they were seeing! I really liked the fact that Percy and Annabeth got to see their parents. Overall its such a good book its hard to not read it often. This is the first book in the Olympians series.

The Good: Rick Riordan did a GREAT job in the mythology background! Teaches you a LOT, you'll be an expert when you finish the book! Full of adventure and fast-paced! 

The Bad: Can't think of any. lol.
