The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan


Date Read: 2010

Goodreads

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. Zeus' 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' 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 him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves

My-Thoughts

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan: This was a great read and one I would highly recommend if you like the Harry Potter books. It was clever (the use of the different gods persona’s were both funny and spot-on to what you would think they would be like if they were in this era) and funny (the kids and the gods have a knack at making almost every situation humorous). I was not sure what to expect as I had only heard a little bit about the movie and had not heard of the books at all until recently. Now, I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!
