Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan ~A Book Review

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick RiordanLook, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek god. I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. That's when things started really going wrong. Now I spend my time fighting with swords, battling monsters with my friends and generally trying to stay alive.

This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea . . .

It's a good story....the movie is very different, done by the same director of the first two Harry Potter movies. Sorry, this isn't about the movie it's about the book. The book was good. I always liked Greek mythology so it was interesting on that part. I'm not overly excited about the start of this series. Where it's good and adventurous and entertaining there was something missing. I can't put my finger on it.....which maybe I'll find in the following books. I also failed to really fall in love with Percy. His character was missing flare. I'm sure Rick Riordan will tell me where to stick my flare, but the book was good enough for me to want to continue reading. So, look forward to more Percy Jackson and .........
This was recommended to be my by a friend on Facebook if you haven't already join us on Facebook. It's not the most happening place, but it's a great way to let us know what your reading and what you think we should read!! :0)
