An extremely charming book! While it's highly likely that the Harry Potter series inspired this book, it has its own personality. The use of Greek myth in the story is very entertaining. Percy is a very likeable boy; and I like the tone of the narrative, his first-person, wiseacre viewpoint. I also like Grover, Annabeth, and Chiron. Lots of humour, lots of adventure, and a bit of poignancy. I look forward to reading Percy's next adventure.
