Hey cheezballz fans I just read this book. A story about a half blood kid (percy) who finds all his friends to be weird and realizes he is special. This novel is based on greek Mythology. Note to author: I am going to start the next book. Signing Off, cheezballz

It is a great book I would reply recommended it if you like Greek mythology I'm on the second book I'm loving the seres the graphic novel is so good and if you want to finish it and keep going on with the series I would reply recommended the graphic novel because the book is really long and starts of slow.

It taught me all about greek mythology and it was a engaging story that sat me on the edge of my seat. I loved it. It had everything, danger, trust, aventure, and a pretty straitforward storyline.

This is an incredible book. Percy, Annabeth and Grover make a great team. I recently bought the first series, and I am happy I did.

Found this book through SELCO and read it. I was just amazed!

I am breathless... It was so epic. I always wondered about the Greek gods and demigods!

All I can say is WOW. No need to say more. I have to say though, I never thought I would find a book better than Harry Potter. This book proved me wrong though. Have fun reading!

I would rate it a 4 star because it does not include much info as the real book does BUT if you just started reading THEN I would recommend this HIGHLY.

This book is a comedy/action and guys lemme tell ya, Percy Jackson is so funny! Its about Greek History in present time so the gods are going to be amazing!

I loved this book because it sometimes says something unexpected about the characters. I kept on reading it because it was enthusiastic, and it told me about a different culture.
