Review of Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1: The Lightning Thief

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What can I say about this book? This is the second time I’ve read the novel and I enjoyed it as much as I did the first time.

Mr. Riordan does a fantastic job of both storytelling, creating characters that are both believable and enjoyable to be around. I’m not a big person for first person narrative but this book does such a fantastic job of creating a character with a voice that is both unique yet enjoyable.

The story is great. The characters are terrific. I would recommend this story to anyone old enough to understand the words. It’s great for children and adults alike.

There is humor. There is action. This story has everything you could want for a quick read.

Not much else for me to say. If you have seen the movies, forget them. The book is a whole lot better.
