really liked it

I bought this book after I watched the movie and there are (of course) some differences. The biggest one is that Percy is a lot younger then he was in the movie and though I had to get used to it in the beginning I didn't really mind it. There are a lot more background details in the book then in the movie and the writing style was pleasant, I finished the book in a few days. It has a lot of things a good fantasy book needs: action, powers, mythical creatures, gods and goddesses and some troublesome teenagers who won't listen to adults. I definitively want to read the second book since you can sense through the whole story there is a lot more of this good stuff to come.
