Xerxes Break(Vivian Ephona) I think this series is one of the best. Its adventurous and comical. It really is a great adventure! And, I agree, READ IT!

Clare I really like Annabeth and all the gods and godessses, they are all very strange. A good piece of fiction i think.

Beth I am a middle school librarian and the Percy Jackson books are being checked out right and left. I read them all and am looking forward to the 4th book this spring.

I like the combination of humor and adventure. I also like the mythology aspect as I have always been a big fan of myths.

Sella Malin I agree these books are really good. I love greek mythology, so it really put a bit of flair in what I knew about it, and I also learned things I didn't know. It's very exciting and I the idea of all the half-bloods being sons or daughters of gods. I would have loved to be able to control water or be as smart as Annabeth! If you haven't, you should read it.

Brigid ✩ I LOVE THESE BOOKS!!!! LOVE EM LOVE EM LOVE EM!!! They are soooo good. They might not make sense if you don't know your Greek mythology, but they are really exciting. Percy is also an excellent character with a distinctive voice. I cannot wait for the fourth one to come out. (btw, you can watch rick riordan read the first chapter of the fourth book on youtube)

Readhead These books are AWESOME. They are awesome even if you know nothing about Greek Mythology, but knowing about it gives it that tiny extra bit of awesomeness. Just reading the title headings will make just about anybody with a pulse crack up. I can't imagine anybody who wouldn't like these books.

Christine I have to agree. I'm a 50-year-old mother and I loved this series. Its fun AND educational. I had forgotten some of my Greek mythology, so it was fun relearning it. My 11-year-old boy loved it, too. The 9-year-old hasn't read it yet because he doesn't know about the Greek Gods, and has no frame of reference...but he wanted to read it so badly that he checked out books about the Gods and learned. Now he's reading it, too! I think its the best book/series I've read this year.

Ruby hi! i've only read the first one and thought it was good but i didn't relize that it was series i guess...anyway whats the 2nd one about, cuz i thought the 1st one ended pretty well.

Readhead The second one is basically Percy's second year at camp, the things he does, and a new conflict (meaning Kronos is still causing mayhem). It involves more Greek myths and their modern counterparts (remember the Lotus Casino? Yeah, kinda like that). It's pretty good, I recommend it.

Ruby ok thanks!

Nathen What I love about this series is the fact that adventure seems to fallow Percy and his friends. I wish my life was full of so much adventure. :-)

Nightshade i love love love this series!!!! i keep rereading them over and over... i got my friend started on them too, she loves it as much as i do!!!!!

Ashley I was thrilled when i found out that the first book was required reading for this summer. Its one of the few books i dont mind re-reading.

Danielle I completely agree! I had to read The Lightning Thief for a school project and immediately afterward read the second, third and fourth. I recommend the series to anyone!
