5 - Excellent Review


Percy Jackson is a book that anybody would love. If you like Harry Potter, Twilight, Eragon--anything along those lines you’d love the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I liked The Lightning Thief because it was interesting and easy to follow, yet it maintained a compelling story and you weren’t always expecting what happened next. The author explained all the mythological aspects in the book really well too, so you don’t have to be a Greek mythology guru to understand the story and love the book. Personally my favorite character was Percy because he starts out like a typical, albeit unlucky, kid and winds up being a hero in the end. He’s courageous, a good friend to Annabeth and Grover, and under all the Greek mythology and hero training he’s just a typical kid. I’d highly recommend this book to anyone who has a taste for action and fantasy books. It’s a thrilling and satisfying story.
