Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lighting Thief by Rick Riordan Book Review

The Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan



I'm back and now I'm going to review the review the Percy Jackson books by Rick Riordan, starting with the book that started it all! I am a really big fan of the Percy Jackson series, as well as The Heroes of Olympus, and The Kane Chronicles also by Rick Riordan. 


in this book Percy Jackson discovers that he is the son of Poseidon, and that he is a Half-Blood or demigod. Percy is also accused of stealing Zeus's Master Bolt, and is giving a limited amount of time to find or there will be war.


First of all, I LOVE PERCY JACKSON! How can you not love Percy Jackson? Percy is one of those characters that you love at first glance. He's cute, funny, strong, brave, loyal, and a little dorky sometimes. And he always puts family and friends first.


Annabeth is also a very awesome character.  he is very brave, very strong, and very smart (after all, her mom is Athena).


I also really love Grover the satyr. He is so sweet. Percy, Annabeth, and Grover make an awesome trio.


I liked Luke, [spoiler] until I found out he was a traitor.


I think it's funny that all the Greek gods are modernized, like how Ares looks like a biker.


Another character I like is Percy's mom, Sally.


And what I am about to ask is a pretty big spoiler, but is it save to assume that Percy's mom turned his step dad into stone using Medusa's head?


And we can't forget Clarisse. To me, Clarisse is one of those characters that you love to hate. She's a daughter Ares so that explains why she's so quick to pick a fight, and is angry for most of the series.


And Poseidon is a pretty awesome character compared to the other Greek gods.


I love the part when Clarisse was trying to give Percy a swirly and He made all the water shoot out of the toilets and showers and soaked all the Ares kids; and when Percy found out that Grover was a satyr; and another part I love is when Percy comes to Camp Half-Blood for the first time.
