Sammy Oh absolutely!! I started The Lightning Thief last week and I'm already on the last book. I wish their were more series out there like the Percy Jackson books.
Cait S If you enjoy YA fantasy and Mythology at all, I would recommend it. The mythology is amazingly well done and woven in to modern day stuff easily. All the characters have their own strengths and are fleshed out equally. I would say Percy can be a little obnoxious every once and a while, but he's twelve, so it comes with the territory. I saw the movie first and then read the book and I would say read it even if you've also seen the movie because the story is COMPLETELY different and also better.
RAD Yes I would recommend it! Great book, just so u know there are 2 series joined for this book.
Robert Burke Read the book it was amazing I loved it so much in fact after i read the hole series I was mad because nothing else was as awesome as it!
Emma Mbulelo DEFIANTLY read the books!!! I've read 3 of the books and there really GREAT!!!!
Reagan Ketchum Absolutely! I just finished this book last week and I loved it. If you love Greek mythology then you will love this novel.
