really liked it
bookshelves: bildungsroman, juvenile-fiction, fantasy

First installment in a series featuring Percy Jackson, who finds out that he's the son of Poseidon. In this book he learns about half-bloods (heroes such a himself and the others at his summer camp) and goes on a quest to find and return Zeus's lightning bolt and prevent a war among the gods. Creative, but a bit transparent to more mature readers. Still a pleasant fantasy adventure, and I'm looking forward to the others in the series.
