Review:The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1) by Rick Riordan



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. When Percy’s mom finds out, she knows it’s time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he’ll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends—one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena—Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.


5/5 stars

Read from December 10 to 12, 2015


I regret not reading this book until now.

The book was brilliant. I’ve already watched the movie and after reading the novel, I have come to the conclusion that the makers must not have read the novel because it’s horrendous. Seriously! it’s terrible! They created the worst book-to-movie adaptation in the history of worst book-to-movie adaptations. I’m really happy that they’re not going on with the movies. The Medusa part was so creepy yet cool in the novel and in the movie.. urgh never mind.
I enjoyed this novel alot. Percy was such a hilarious character. His POV was really fun to read. And Annabeth was really awesome. I mean she was a smart nerd and that makes her my second favourite female character, second to Hermoine, who is my all time favourite character, no doubt. I love characters who read and are a bit nerdy.

Anyway, the book was really cool to read and reading about all the Greek Mythology has been really a fun experience that’s why 5/5 stars! 🙂
