This is an adventure/fantasy/mystery novel that incorporates Greek Mythology in a modern day setting. It very much reminds me of Harry Potter, and in some ways I liked it better than Harry. If you know any of the Greek myths, you already have the background information J.K. Rowling spent 100s of pages explaining. This book was surprising, funny, suspenseful and fun. I recommend it to anyone, young or old.
