Riordan's imaginative placement of Greek mythology in our modern world makes for a great story! The last few chapters were somewhat anti-climatic, just setting up the sequel, but overall The Lightning Thief is a fun read. I enjoyed the narrator of the audiobook, although I understand what my friend Sue said about his women's characters being whiny.
