The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a good book, but it wasnt a book that I couldnt put down. Once I was done with the entire book, it did not linger on my mind. I feel like the series will get better as it goes along so I intend to read the others but I have other books that I am compelled to read first. I liked the world Rick Riordan has created and the characters but I really didnt like how the whole story was mainly different monsters coming at them at every turn. I wish there was more "meat" to the story so to speak. And please dont hate on me for this but I actually liked the movie better! :O

All in all three stars and I will someday read the rest of the books and watch any future movies of this series. It was neat learning about the gods. And I should say that I think any one 12 and under will love this series, it reminding me of the first three HP books, which are not as dark as the rest. Maybe this series will get darker? We can only hope! LOL

Mmm, I know. I read the entire series only 3 weeks ago but I can barely remember the main plot. Not the best novel I've read.

I loved the entire series, and I got completely absorbed in the Percy Jackson story. It's interesting to hear another take on it though!
