Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (Book 1) (Percy Jackson And The Olympians) Kindle Edition
|Kindle Edition, 1 May 2008|| |
Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief is the first bestselling book in Rick Riordan's phenomenally successful Percy Jackson series - now with a new cover look.
Half boy. Half God. ALL Hero.
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. Now I spend my time battling monsters 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.Sunday Times

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.

I read this because people say it’s a great series and as good as Harry Potter. I think in terms of style there are parallels (although different subject matter) between the vibe of this book and the philosophers stone. I would probably recommend to 10-12 year old or younger if being read to the child. It is good if you have been introduced to Greek gods before this book.
