The Lightning Thief is a book that is out of this world. It is about Percy Jackson, who is an ordinary teen who thinks he is not special, but this is where he is wrong. Percy also has dyslexia and ADHD. He has been to multiple boarding schools, and is about to be kicked out of another one when mysterious monsters start chasing him. After his mother and a friend Grover tried to save him, Percy wakes up in a mysterious camp. As time goes on, Percy learns that everyone at this camp are not that ordinary, in fact, they are children of Greek Gods, even Percy himself. It was hard to believe it at first, but slowly everything started to make sense. Percy also learns that he is the only living son of Poseidon, the god of the sea.
The gods of the Greek world get into a big fight, mainly between Zeus and Hades. Zeus is the god of the sky and the king of gods, while Hades is the god of the underworld. Hades is suspected of taking Zeus’s thunderbolt, and people from Half-Blood Hill send Percy, Grover, and Annabeth to retrieve it. What will happen next on this unexpected journey to the underworld? Will Percy succeed? Will Percy meet his true father? To learn more, you must read The Lightning Thief. You’ll not regret it! I give this book five stars and recommend this to anyone who wants a fantastic book about demi-God and the challenges in the real world.
