Hey Guys in a book club we discuss books. So why don't you tell what you felt for this particular book at the first instance. What was your First Impression??

Dalila Mandić (dalila93) | 98 comments So I just recently read Percy Jackson series and now I'm reading The Heroes of Olympus. I think if I continue this way, I will read everything Rick Riordan wrote!

I love Percy and Annabeth! They are so amazing together... Also there are a lot of characters who are quite amazing and their adventures are so interesting to read about.
I love Leo Valdez, he is so funny!

But, I do mind the age of the characters.I know these are children books, but 12 year olds running around alone and facing monsters and travelling all around the country... it's just too much. I like how they are teenagers in the movies, because it seems more believable.

Also, in the first 4 books I liked how there was a plot pattern - Percy makes a mess at school, he has to be rushed to Camp Half-blood, there is new mystery, they go on a quest, meet new Gods, face new monsters, save the day!

But, The Gods - OMG! Such babies! The demigods are helping The Gods and they are making things more difficult for them during quests. Like...whaaaat?!

Anyways, I loved the series!! :D

I really don't think so the director had read the books. He has missed so many important scenes(I only know bout the book 1 and it's movie cuz I have just started the series). In the movies(view spoiler)

Shubhangi (1_shubhangi_7) | 43 comments I have already finished with all the series. But the first impression! It's very difficult to tell. I actually was searching for a book by Enid Blyton in our school library and since I had already read all his books available, had to find another author's book. Found the Lost Hero book. Since I found the cover quite attractive for me, I took it and then!!!!

Now I am completely mad for Uncle Rick's books.
I fell first for Percy, then Annabeth, the Camp, then the Gods and the trials. All of his books are amazing!!!

I agree with you! It happens always that the content in the original book is altered just so that the audience like the movie, but it actually spoils the fun especially for all those who have read the books.
