Bought for two boys. Don't know their reaction yet but the masses say it is awesome. Will continue the series if they like it.

The Gods are brought back to life, as Rick Riordan gives Greek Mythology a makeover.

Percy Jackson keeps having problems at school, mainly caused by his ADHD and dyslexia. Little does he know that his life is about to change -- taking a turn for the worst -- as his mother is attacked by a creature and Percy forced to shelter at Camp Half-Blood where he is declared a Demi-God. He will now have to take on the task of hero and accept a quest to find Zeus' missing lightning bolt.

Well-written and plotted, The Lightning Thief knows no boundaries when it comes to action. Percy is strong, wise for his age, and yet grows as a character before our eyes. But what makes the book impossible to put down are the magical scenes including Centaurs and The Fates.

Glad to see the movie doesn't deviate too much from the book.

The book is an amazing read especially if you enjoy fantasy as much as I do. The main thing you mist know is that the movie does not follow this book really well. So if you are buying this because you want to know where the movie came from, just know they are very different.

Thanks amazon for a speedy ship and deliver i love getting my books from amazon.ca

What a great little book!! I know it was written for kids but it was written well and it was entertaining - perfect for summer reading.

Percy is a very likeable, average kid who just happens to be a demi-god. He's not the most popular kid in the mortal world. His best friend (only friend) Grover is half goat and the only teacher he's had that doesn't pick on him is half horse, but he doesn't know any of this at first. After Percy learns what and who he is, the adventure begins. Percy does make a couple of new friends along the way but that just evens the scales as he also makes a few more enemies. If you don't know your Greek mythology, that's OK because it will be explained throughout the book in a way you can remember.

This was a really fun story, and a very easy and quick read. Good thing it is a series!!

This was a really cute book, and I think if I had been 10 years younger, I would have really enjoyed it. It is packed full of Greek mythological references, so I think for kids or teenagers who enjoy that sort of stuff (as I really did), it's an excellent buy.

I bought this book for my 9 year old son and gave it to him at Christmas. This book had to compete with a new Nintendo DS, Wii games, R/C truck, and innumerable other Christmas presents. It's a 400 page book. He had it read in 2 days.

I don't know if I can give it a more ringing endorsement than that.

My friend gave me her book to read because she loves it so much. I really didn't think I would want to read it, seeing as this book was written for younger children and we are both older adults, but she insisted it was great. Now after reading it I understand why, this book is good for all ages. I've only read this first book so far out of the series and I really liked it. There was a lot of adventure and there always seemed to be something exciting happening to keep you interested. I will definitely be reading the next adventures of Percy Jackson that's for sure.
