message 1: by Sarah (new)

Sarah (saire) Hi All

I am new to good reads and to this group, but am glad to be able to chat online with fellow supernatural lovers!

I was wondering if anyone else has seen the movie "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief" or read any of the books? I have only seen the movie. It's probably a little childish, but I quite enjoyed it and thought it was better than I expected.

The main characters are all basically half human / half gods. It might be a story more suited to guys, but one of the main characters is female and she's a very strong and independent character.

Definitely worth checking out the movie at the very least ... any thoughts?

Ellen | 633 comments I've read the first book, The Lightning Thief, but I haven't seen the movie. I was going to see it while it was in cineama's but a friend said that it wasn't very good, so I'm waiting until the movie comes out on DVD

Haha ... I liked the winged converse too. It wasn't the most amazing movie about, but not a bad story for something a little different ...

I might watch it. What's it about again??


message 22: by [deleted user] (new)

In the near future they have created this thing where
You can either 'pay to play a person or you can be a person and be paid.

So its like a video game but the "characters" are actually real people!

Oh, yay! I'm looking forward to the next movies.
My brother bought the first movie for me for Xmas and i thought it was really sweet cos he was the one who went and saw it at the movies with me cos no one else would go. Now every time i watch it i'll think of him =D

I know. He is a cute. And with the name Logan. I love Logans!


message 38: by Ellen (new)

Ellen | 633 comments LOL! As long as I can hide with you from Lil Ellen, we're all cool! ;D

I don't suppose that reason has anything to do with the love interest in Destined...? --raised eyebrow--

Star (staria) okay, this might be old (especially since other people here went off topic from the percy jackson subject lol) but..

hurry whoever has not yet read this series or only read the first couple of books, read the entire series! as others have said, it may seem middle-school material, but even grown teens-adults love and can understand this~
whoever read this series, do read The Lost Hero book and its series also, as *no name* mentioned earlier.

I enjoyed this series. I agree that it is middle-school-ish, but the mythology is brilliant and you know Rick Riordan has put a lot of effort into creating his world.
I've yet to read The Lost Hero, although i plan to, however i've read The Red Pyramid, the first book in the Kane Chronicles. It's about two siblings and their adventures, however it focusing on the myths and gods of Ancient Egypt. It's really good.

GASP! No! How dare there! You should make a complaint. Lol. Gah! I hate it when that happens. I also it when you think of really cool and unused names and then suddenly you come across it in another book!!! :O It's horribleeee! Especially when they share certain aspects! *grumbles*

Lmao! Yeah, it kinda sucks, but I've been tossing around new title, cos of this, but as of yet there's nothing that stood out for me.
Yes. It really does suck.

Oh, and...question? What's with the fp on the end of your name? Does it have some sort of meaning?

What ideas have you been tossing around? I'd be happy to help if you really want a different name.
It's HON. Self explanitory :L

Bahaha! The F is the inital of my middle name which is Faith. And P is for my dad's last name because my parents aren't married :D On twitter and blogger I just called myself Ellen Faith though.
