The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
My Rating: 4 stars
Percy Jackson isn’t your average teenage boy. He’s a demigod and his father is a Greek god – who he believed to be a myth. His life is spinning out of control. Greek monsters are appearing all over New York. Once Grover, a satyr who is Percy’s protector, takes him to Camp Half Blood, Percy discovers that the people of Mt. Olympus believe that he has stolen Zeus’s master lightning bolt. Percy sets out of a journey along with Grover and Athena’s daughter Annabeth, to find the lightning bolt before a war starts within Mt. Olympus. But along the way, Percy will discover someone is not who he says he is.
I really, really liked this book. I think the Greek gods are really interesting, and to have them brought to life in a modern-day story is really cool! Rick Riordan’s idea was so original! I’m definitely going to read the rest of the series.
