Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek God. I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. That's when things started really going wrong. Now I spend my time fighting with swords, battling monsters with my friends, and generally trying to stay alive.
This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea.
Can Percy find the lightning bolt before a fully-fledged war of the Gods erupts?

I personally was really upset when I finished the Percy Jackson serious untill I found out about the Heroes of Olympus books which has the same characters as Percy Jackson but it is even better.
Definitely try this book if you are in to action, mystery and adventure but like a bit of romance as well.

I loved the humor and the adventure it has. The fantasy Rick has created is amazing and it is a really good book to read.
The only bad thing about this book was that I found it very hard to remember who all of the God's were and their skills.
I recommend this book especially if you like fantasy, mystery and adventure.
Anyone who hasn't read it should start reading Percy Jackson now!
But I do recommend you to start reading it, starting with the first one, Percy Jackson and The Lightning theif.

Why have I waited so long to read this?! Because I'm there, I get it, buy me a T-shirt, and sign me up to the fandom already! My only regret about this book is, why didn't I read it sooner?!
I loved the way Riordan makes Greek mythology relevant to the present day. It was really interesting to see how he updated these stories as they have such a wealth of possibility, which believe me, he uses it to his full advantage. Riordan has created a rich world with a fast paced adventure that still stays true to the original premise just with a whole host of new and loveable characters.
So don't let the age range put you off, it doesn't read like it's intended audience, just good fantasy fiction.

This is a exceptionally entertaining read with wonderful characters and an action filled plot. It's funny and it's exciting and I can see why these books made such a splash in the children's literature world. In the way of some of the best children's books, it hides that it is actually quite educational by being great fun.
