Review

Review by Niharika V Kudva, 11 yrs, Maharashtra, Winner of Flipkart Review Contest

The Percy Jackson series of books would be liked by all preteens and teens. What's good about the book is that it's humorous and very understandable yet descriptive. It introduces the reader to the world where Greek gods are real. It is fun to read and very informative. The protagonist of these books, a boy called Percy Jackson, discovers that he is a 'demi-god'. That is, a human being born from a god and a mortal.

The first five books have been written from the point-of-view of Percy. This first-person narration makes it easier to understand as the language is simple. The stories aren't predictable and that's what makes them interesting.

The first book of the series- Percy Jackson and the lightning thief is a good introduction to the series. Many terms that are used often in the other books, are introduced to the reader in this book. 

The book describes the enmity between the greatest Greek gods- Zeus, the god of air and the god of gods, Poseidon the god of water and Hades the god of death and the underworld. It shows how different these gods are from each other, though they are brothers.

Percy Jackson, helped by his friend- Grover, reaches the only place safe for demi-gods, Camp Half-blood. That's when he discovers that Zeus, a god he didn't even know, really existed before he reached camp, is accusing him of stealing Zeus's mightiest weapon, the lightning bolt. The story continues with some amazing incidents where Percy finds himself doing all sorts of things from entering the underworld to battling Ares, the god of war.

I felt this book was very interesting and educational though it was slightly violent. People who liked the '39 clues' series would like this. The author of the book- Rick Riordan knows the way think, very well. It was so realistic, I had to keep reminding myself that this book was fiction. I would seriously recommend this book. Rick Riordan has also written the 'Kane chronicle' series.

Description 

 

Look, 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.

Go for a better DEAL!!

Don't buy this one, this single book costs Rs 209 whereas you get a full set of 3 books (Percy Jackson Collection) at Rs 389. The collection includes:

1) Percy Jackson : The Lightning Thief
2) Percy Jackson : The Sea of Monsters
3) Percy Jackson : The Titan's Curse

I didn't see it earlier and now regret it after buying a single book @209???

Percy Jackson is a 12-year-old boy with Dyslexia and ADHD, and he has been expelled from four schools, the last being Yancy Academy. Sally, Percy???s mother, takes Percy on a trip to Long Island to get him away from his stepfather who mistreats him.

Percy is attacked by a former teacher, Mrs. Dodds, who is revealed to be one of the Furies who are out to kill Percy. Sally and Percy are soon joined by Grover Underwood, Percy???s closest friend from Yancy Academy. Sally takes the children to Camp Half-Blood, a camp for Demigods.
There, Percy is put in the Hermes cabin in the charge of Counsellor Luke Castellan. During a game, the Ares cabin attacks Percy. But Percy is healed on entering the waters of a nearby river. Soon revelations follow regarding the relationship between Percy and Poseidon.

Meanwhile, the Bolt of Zeus is stolen and Percy is accused of stealing it by Zeus. Percy is accompanied by his friends Grover and Annabeth.
They eventually reach Hades??? palace after encountering many hassles on the way. There, Hades accuses Percy of stealing his Helm of Darkness. Percy now has to find the helm as well as the bolt. The story further reveals the following. Will Percy be successful in finding both the bolt and helm? If Percy is innocent, who is the actual thief?
IT IS AWESOME

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

It is a very good book. It's about Percy Jackson, the son of a Greek god, Poseidon. He doesn't even know he's a demigod. Then he discovers Camp Half Blood, a place where all demigods go for training. And then he finds out that Zeus, the god of thunder's master lightning bolt is stolen, and he is at blame. He must go on a quest with his demigod friends to find the lightning bolt, and return it to Zeus. I give it four out of five stars.

The Best Book Ever!!

Percy Jackson series is really good. if you like books like Harry Potter, then this book is for you... the sarcasm adds a perfect finish to the book. So buy it, you will NEVER regret it!!! Rick Riordan is the new J.K Rowling.This is the MOST addictive book!! you will not be able to keep it down once you start reading it. Buy the whole collection cause it makes more sense. All the 5 books will be included in that.

Original plot that sounds like a spoof

Well, it felt like a spoof... but I do not know the original. There was some resemblance, probably inspired from Harry Potter but the latter was much better. (View complete review)
