I loved this book from start to finish.

Having always been a keen sudent in my Ancient History class, I was looking forward to see how Rick Riordan incorporated the Ancient Greek mythology with modern day pre-teen characters. I was pleasently surprised! Although the main character, Percy, is quite young in the book, the story is fast paced, the adventure nearly non stop, and you couldn't really predict exactly where things were going.

This book would definitely appeal to a younger reading audience as the language is, at times, comical, it flows very well, and is easy to understand but is a great read for an older audience, or teens/young adults who love action and adventure. I can't wait to finish the rest of the series!
