Mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking out of the pages of twelve-year-old Percy Jackson's textbooks and into his life. Series creator Rick Riordan joins forces with some of the biggest names in the comic book industry to tell the story of a boy who must unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.

    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.

          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.

                  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.

                      This was a pretty good version of Percy Jackson and the lightning thief. Percy Jackson is the son of Greek God Poseidon. Percy discovers he is a demi-god, his best friend is a satyr and his teacher is actually the teacher of Camp Half-Blood a safe place for all the demi-gods. It missed a few big parts in my opinion from the actual book but overall was funny, action packed and full of all things demi-god! Join in on reading this epic quest. Thanks for reading -Ajg16's reviews
