Product description

From Booklist

Gr. 6-9. The escapades of the Greek gods and heroes get a fresh spin in the first book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, about a contemporary 12-year-old New Yorker who learns he's a demigod. Perseus, aka Percy Jackson, thinks he has big problems. His father left before he was born, he's been kicked out of six schools in six years, he's dyslexic, and he has ADHD. What a surprise when he finds out that that's only the tip of the iceberg: he vaporizes his pre-algebra teacher, learns his best friend is a satyr, and is almost killed by a minotaur before his mother manages to get him to the safety of Camp Half-Blood--where he discovers that Poseidon is his father. But that's a problem, too. Poseidon has been accused of stealing Zeus' lightning bolt, and unless Percy can return the bolt, humankind is doomed. Riordan's fast-paced adventure is fresh, dangerous, and funny. Percy is an appealing, but reluctant hero, the modernized gods are hilarious, and the parallels to Harry Potter are frequent and obvious. Because Riordan is faithful to the original myths, librarians should be prepared for a rush of readers wanting the classic stories. Chris Sherman

From AudioFile

Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson knows he's different, but when a teacher becomes a deadly monster and his scrawny best friend turns out to be a satyr, he learns he's a hero--the half-blood son of an Olympian god. Narrator Jesse Bernstein artfully creates a variety of characters, including nervous goat-boy Grover and bossy wise-girl Annabeth (Athena's daughter), but his masterpiece is the boyish and sarcastic Percy himself. Bernstein also rises to the challenge of giving voice to the Olympians. From Aries's growling and guttural snarls to Zeus's haughty tones, Bernstein breathes new life into these ancient characters. Adults and children alike will be spellbound as they listen to this deeply imaginative tale unfold. J.C.G.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!
By Sanskriti Gupta on 12 August 2018
An amazing book. If you are a potterhead, or if you like magic-related books, you'll definitely not get bored. The book's condition was very good and was delivered on time. Thank you Amazon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Quality
By Amazon Customer on 16 June 2018
Apart from it being an excellent read (which it is, the story telling is wonderful and linear, the charecters are well written and you see the world through the eyes of a 12 year old boy who is forced on an adventure) the quality of the book is great. The paper is good and thick, the print is very legible and it is clear. This book is worth a lot more than one would expect from the low price tag.
Regards,
A happy bookworm

5.0 out of 5 stars Half boy ~ Half God~ All Hero
By Abanti Mitra on 9 July 2019
A fantastic story which revolves around a boy who was leading a normal life. And one day everything changed. The words used in this book is absolutely easy and nice.
Rick Riordan wrote this book in an entertaining theme. Every children should read this series. It is as much fun as Harry Potter series. I'll surely recommend this book.

The quality was not that good so I covered the book with transparent sheet.
