Lightning Thief, The (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 1) Rick Riordan Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can't seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse-Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him.

    Ok so, first things first... don’t you DARE compare Percy to Harry Potter. I TRIED to read the Harry Potter series two times. I got threw the second book. And we all know that Harry Potter is NOTHING like Percy Jackson. NOTHING! Why would you guys say that? This is a book about the gods and a boy who didn’t know he was the son of one of the major gods until he was ATTACKED by a monster on a field trip! (Looking at you, Mrs. Dotts) and the thing I love the most about Percy Jackson is HES MY AGE AND HE DEALS WITH THE SAME PROBLEMS AS ME!! Of course those problems are on a higher scale then mine (doing something for a bully, who might as well be Aries) but Harry doesn’t do that, he has problems like, Fighting and evil sorcerer and surviving the attack on his house when he was little! NO ONES DONE THAT!! And I like the fact that humans can’t see the magic, because of the Mist (a magical vail that shields the eyes of mortals). I would give ANYTHING to be a half blood! (Because of the weird shyst I see) or even be a mortal who can see threw the Mist! Like Rachel or Sally! My halloween costume has been Annabeth Chase every year since I was seven! (If you read the books you’ll see why seven and not six, the year I read the book!) I love the Percy Jackson series and DONT like it when people decide to hate on it and call it a ripoff of Harry Potter! CAUSE ITS NOT!! GODS OF OLYMPUS!!! Ps. I really would appreciate it if you made sure other people could read this review! Because then MAYBE they will STOP calling it a ripoff of Harry Potter!

    I read this series when I was in 4th and 5th grade and loved it. It was funny, relatable, and filled with action and it’s definitely a classic. It made me actually enjoy learning about greek mythology and made me want to learn more about it. I read most of Rick Riordan’s books and enjoyed them all as much as the percy jackson series. I definitely recommend this series for kids!

    By why so many ad's
    I LOVE this book!! It’s amazing!! I like how Annabeth and sally are strong and tough. I love Percy’s quirky personality. It’s a quick addicting read and you’ll be dying to get the next book. My brother recommended this to me after he read it when he was my age. I quickly read all of the books in that series in under 2 weeks. You should definitely read it! It’s worth the money.
  • FANTASTIC!! 😄😄😄

    This book is one of my favorites, (though in my opinion, book 3 is the best).
