Reviewed: 2020-06-29I took a while to jump on the Percy Jackson bandwagon (until the final book was released), but I loved it! Full of Greek mythology and modern adventure, this is a must for anyone who loves mythology or heroic tales.
Reviewed: 2019-01-15So far, I really like this. It's exciting and easy to read. I like the hero...hope it continues to keep my attention.
Great book! Would rate 5 stars except the main character is a boy. :-) Thank goodness for Annabeth.
Reviewed: 2018-04-13This book was passed along to me by my 14 year old, as we tend to share an interest in the Young Adult Fantasy series. I was not overly impressed by the writing style of this particular author and it took me a bit longer to finish than usual.
However, I found the storyline to be pleasing and would probably continue reading the series, but this would likely be a filler between books for me.
I should also add that I did recently see the movie as well, and was not disappointed in the changes made; the characters were likeable, and the effects met my expectations. This is one of the rare occasions in which I found the movie to surpass the book.
If you've just seen the movie, forget everything you think you know about this series. The book and the movie are nothing alike. The book is so much better. I'm a big fan of this series, and this is a great first book.
