Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief
By: Rick Riordan
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan is a very adventurous book and is the first book in the series of Percy Jackson and The Olympians where Percy, main protagonist in the story, learns that the Greek myths about the Greek Gods are real and that they are real in the world today. He also finds out that his dad is Poseidon and that he has extraordinary powers over water. The setting is New York. This series is a personal favorite for me because I have a personal interest in Greek Mythology and I live on Long Island, where Camp Half-Blood is located.
I would give this book a 10 out of 10 because it had everything that I would want in a book that would interest me. Rick Riordan did an amazing job of making this book. He perfectly combined Greek myths into a very well thought out book that includes humor, action, and adventure. Vihan B.; Teen Reviewer
