the_lightning_thief”The lightning Thief” is the first installment in  Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. This book is about Greek Gods and demigods. This book gives proper information about Gods and their power. If you want to know about Greek myths and want to read a good fiction this is right choice.

The main character, Percy, is a 12 year old, dyslexic student of Yancy Academy who believes Greek Gods are just myths told to people to explain seasons. He had never imagined that one day he will have to face them. But monsters and Gods both seem to be after him for some reason and his normal, not so complicated life is upside down. A powerful god (who is his father as well) is seeking for his help. All these years who abandoned his mother and him for the sake of prestige is seeking for help. Will Percy help him? By doing so will he be able to withstand the anger of other Gods and monsters?

It is simple and interesting story. My rating: 4 out of 5. I highly recommend this to Harry Potter and Narnia fans 🙂 I watched the movie adaptation of this novel by the same name, but they have changed a lot of things in the movie and it was not as good as the book.

  1. I enjoyed the book as well and had a similar reaction to the movie. My nephew is a great fan of the series, and it’s nice to see him reading such a solid set of novels that give an interesting intro to Greek mythology.

      I know, the Greek Mythology concept in this series is really interesting. Good to know you enjoyed this book. Movie adaptation of the second book is out and I am planning to watch it after reading the book.

    I’m so glad you’re reading these! I hope you enjoy all the rest. I just re-visited the universe with his short story collections.

    True, about the movie adaptation, it is also good since its not one of those series where you don’t get tired i don’t know it just keeps getting better and better.
