Rick Riordan's series Order:

first, Percy Jackson
then Heroes of Olympus
at last, Trials of Apollo & Magnus Chase is happening at the same time; they have crossovers sometimes.

(or read in this order: Camp Half-Blood Chronicles)
I warned everywhere I could, because I'm nervous you might read in wrong order & you won't enjoy as much as you should.

generally I love the fantasy which happening in our world, low fantasy, I call them: Fantasy in reality.

I am as obsessed as a person can be with PJ. Annabeth is so cool, Grover is so hilarious and Percy (at least in the movie) is SUCH a hottie! I watched the movie only hours ago and yes, it's true: they practically ripped the book apart. Where's Clarisse? That's what I ask. Where's Dionysus and Annabeth's dream of being an architect and relationship with Luke and Grover's obsession with Pan and the REAL way Percy came across the pearls? They were never Persephone's. I mean, Grover is white! Annabe ...more

This set was recommended to me by a 9th grader, and I'm giving the hardcover set to my granddaughter on her 10th birthday. While the writing style is not up to my J.K.Rowling yardstick, the books offer good characters and an unusual premise. Percy and others are "demigods", meaning that one of their parents is a Greek god. Thus, Riordan also brings young readers into the world of mythology while providing an entertaining action storyline.


As with the Potter books, one of my favorite characteristi

Doing the review this way, rather than writing one for each book :)
----

This series is right up there with Harry Potter and Henning Mankell's Kurt Wallander series as my top favorite series. Each re-visit is dropping in on some old friends and re-living their adventures/lives.

First time I saw this series, I was passing the book section at work and the movie cover caught my eye (I think the movie was out not long after I finished the book). The title and synopsis immediately intrigued me and on a

So many reviews of this series compare it to Harry Potter (and with good reason) but as a fan of both (and a beginning skeptic myself) I have to say that though they are similar series, Percy Jackson stands on its own. In the Lightening Thief, Percy is so Harry Potter, the camp is so Hogwarts, Chiron is so Dumbledore- I completely admit that. In fact when this series first came out I refused to read it and criticized it for being a rip-off. But for some reason, I gave it a try (at the request of ...more

Don't mind me, just getting used to sharing my thoughts with the world again.
Here goes.

This was pretty fucking awesome. Unexpectedly so, to be honest.
I never even considered reading this series until I saw the two movies back to back on TV on a random night, and I got so into them I just had to read the series. (You know you've written a lot of reviews when the GR html code comes naturally to your fingers even after an almost year-long hiatus. Huh.) Thank god I decided to start from the first bo

I really wish I’d read this series when I was around twelve and feel a nostalgic connection towards it. Because if I can love it even at twenty three, I know I would’ve just adored it for the intended age. The same with Harry Potter.

However, I’m still so glad I read it now. I always hear so many amazing things about this series so I am so happy I get to join in on the fandom!

This series is so fantastical and great, and Percy’s voice is such a fantastic one to experience. He grows so much over

OH my GOSH! I read the entire series just a few months ago, and I highly respect Rick for being a mast storyteller. It's clear from the beginning that he has the ending of the series in mind, so nothing---NOT ONE THING---comes off as unnatural. Pair that with cool Greek powers and urban fantasy? Astounding!!
Only a few issues---Percy rides in a car with a girl in a bathing suit (probably pretty chaste, though) and there's a few "Oh my G's", as well as some monster deaths, and freaky magic---but

Ok, so the Percy Jackson series is *readable. And yes, it gives an 'easy' way into Greek mythology to teenagers - although why teenagers can't read the actual thing since it is a rollicking great ball of fun, I don't understand.
But, hm. It's a bit glib. It is chockful of American private jokes, Dead'R Us and the like, which will not be funny to non-Americans. It also doesn't quite gel. If Percy knows he's going to have to fight monsters daily now and forever, why does he insist on going back to

I read the five volumes of PJ and the Olympians to my 9 year old granddaughter. She absolutely loved them all, so this rating is an average of her 5++++ and my 3+ ish stars.

I thought the first volume The Lightning Thief was pretty good, excellent even, weaving the mythology of the Greek gods into the tale of Percy (short for Perseus), an 11-year old in New York with an attention disorder, who also happens to be a demi-god, the son of Poseidon and a mortal NY mother. He faces a dangerous missio

Favorite: book IV - Battle of the Labyrinth

I majored in Greek mythology at college, so I can say happily, with some authority, that Riordan really knows his stuff and gets it right. No matter how brief the reference and how it's reused for the adventure, he gives snippets that kids, anyone, can latch onto and be consistent with more academic approaches. Also means, if you're already familiar with the mythology, he lets you feel very clever by letting you recognize a being a page in advance befor

Kind of basic but still good - its a pretty decent introduction to Greek mythology and weaves the Greek elements into the story quite well. Characters could have been developed further but I guess it would probably satisfy its young audience. The only thing stopping me from giving this 5 stars is Percy himself - he's just plain narcissistic and annoying and I could really do without his numerous smart-aleck comments and the one too many "I could feel the power of the [water/sea/ocean/waves] surg ...more

The best part about the series is the intermingling of myth,legend and fresh fiction, woven around new characters.
You dive into a world of gods,monsters,heroes and mortals with beautiful portrayl of friendship, courage, trust, acceptance of flaws and bravery.

Now about it being compared to Harry Potter: The milieu are beautiful, bewitching and play on subtle humor BUT the characters don't grow on you much (probably coz none of the major ones die!) and since the series is extended into further boo

The Books:
The Lightning Thief
The Sea of Monsters
The Titan's Curse
The Battle of the Labyrinth
The Last Olympian

The Characters:

Perseus 'Percy' Jackson-By far probably my favorite male fictional character and one of my overall favorite fictional characters of all time. Percy is such a sarcastic character and can be a bit clueless sometimes, but is still very smart and just an overall amazing character. He is also extremely loyal and was very well developed.

I found it too kiddish - maybe it's because I'm almost 30. Don't get me wrong. Ive read the harry potter series and loved them so much that I saw all their movies and played their pc games too. But this one is too predictable on a lot of occasions:

1) bad guy comes, irritates/tortures hero, hero does a strike move, wins, praise, cheesy dialogues and lots of "how did i do that". it gets boring pretty fast.

2) hero asks qs, answered with riddles, more qs more riddles, someone else comes into the pic

I don't actually have/never read this particular boxed set edition, but it was the only one I could find that included all the books. I read the Percy Jackson series quite a while ago, and then again last year, and both readings were enjoyable. I was a bit skeptical of the writing (I was not sure that I would like the first person narration of a teen aged boy) but was surprised that it caught me. I love the Mythology theme, and the characters, and I never was bored during any of the books. They ...more

I was really impressed and surprised by this series. I loved learning about myths and folklore in middle school, and these books were really refreshing as I got to remember all the Greek gods I'd heard of and learn about a lot more I'd never come across before.

Rick Riordan was clever to make a character from a broken one-parent home with learning disabilities and make him a demigod. His books appeal to his audience very directly, though I feel there's plenty of cross-over for people of varied a

I first read this series when I was 14yo, right inside that target audience, and I absolutely adored them all. Percy taught me that boys could be pretty cool, and Annabeth was my hero for at least a couple of years, because she taught me that being smart and/or a bookworm wasn't something that warranted shame (despite the teasing of my peers), in fact, it was something to be proud of. At such a pivotal point in my emotional development, I couldn't ask for a better role model for myself, even if ...more

Percy Jackson and the Olympians is an entertaining and engaging read.

I ordered the Percy Jackson and the Olympians Complete Series to read with my 10 year old son. It was a very enteraining and engaging read. Most nights, my son was begging me to keep reading while I tried to convince him it was time for bed. Honestly, I often wanted to keep going too, but someone has to be the adult ; ) Riordan apparently does the "hook at the end of a chapter" thing very well.
