5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING SERIES!!! A MUST READ!!! Aug. 2 2010
By DJS
Format:Paperback
From the minute you turn the first page Rick Riordan has you captivated. The stories are fast-paced; exciting; captivating; and informative! If you have no knowledge of Greek Mythology....no need to worry! Rick Riodan weaves Greek-Mythology and action into multiple exciting adventures that will keep you suspended at the edge of your seat! You'll walk away from the series with a basic lesson in Greek-Mythology and a great-deal of enjoyment from having been entertained throughout the five (5) book series!

I recommend the series for youth; the young-at-heart; and all lovers of Greek-Mythology!

Great read!

4.0 out of 5 stars Son of a god May 17 2010
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
If you know anything about Greek mythology, you'll know that their gods had a tendency to produce demigod kids by the dozen. And the "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" series is all about a boy who discovers that he's the offspring of a god, and the other demi-god kids that he gets to know at a very, very special camp. Rick Riordan spins a clever fast-moving adventure that mines ancient mythology and gives it a modern spin.

Percy Jackson has always been a troublemaker, but he's shocked when some truly strange things begin to happen in his life. After a minotaur attack, he learns that he's at a special training camp called Camp Half-Blood intended for demi-god children, and that his best friend Grover is actually a satyr bodyguard. Though Percy is understandably resistant to the idea, he soon makes friends in the sharp Annabeth and the bitter Luke (and enemies with the kids from Cabin Ares).

Oh yes, and he finds that he's the son of the god Poseidon... which is a problem since the "Big Three" gods have sworn an oath not to father any more kids, due to a rather ominous prophecy.

As a result, Percy finds himself in the middle of some epic cosmic battles -- he must recover Zeus' master lightning bolt before the world is thrown into chaos; he must venture into the Sea of Monsters to get Grover and the Golden Fleece; clash with the Titan Atlas; embark on a journey into the legendary Cretan Labyrinth to save the camp; and finally battles against Lord Kronos to save Olympus.

The Percy Jackson series is all a little Harry Potter in concept -- ordinary kid discovers he has magical powers, and is taught in a specialized school/camp while fighting against the forces of evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very fun and exciting series! Dec 4 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this series, while it's listed as being for ages 9 - 12 (which Harry Potter is often listed as that as well), like the HP series, I think any age could enjoy the stories. It's original, made me start looking up Greek Mythology because it's been so long since I read about it, but I even found that interesting and I loved the humour in the series, despite the very serious situations the characters found themselves in! Great characters, interesting adventures and I know I'll be able to read them a few times without being bored!
I would have preferred the hard cover books be available from the start, but when I bought this, my sister took the paperbacks from me as she enjoyed it as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good collection, very compact Dec 3 2013
By moony
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a nice paperback set for the Percy Jackson series. It's compact, light, and the design is nice too. This is a very good series for children and young adults that helps to develop interest in Ancient Greece and Greek mythology. Compared to Harry Potter, it's almost as good - too bad the Percy Jackson movies are not as faithful to the books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! May 30 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A friend suggested this. I am in my early 20's but I have a thing for pre teen books, a lot more seems to happen in them. Don't get me wrong, I also enjoy the witcher, prince of thorns and Metro 2033, but as I know a bit about literature I can see the themes in these books and enjoy the twists and turns.
