Book Review: Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief The story starts off with a 12‐year‐old Percy Jackson attending a school trip to the museum of natural history, in one of the exhibition halls he is attacked by a winged creature, he somehow escapes and winds up at a camp where they train demigods to fight against monsters, after a while, he finds out that the Greek gods are in dispute about Zeus stolen lightning bolt, and now Percy has less than a week to get it back. This book is great in that it isn’t difficult to understand, and almost anyone, regardless of age difference, can relate to anyone, also like the humor that the author has in the book, it’s simple and the writing style is appropriate. The story of the book is fast‐paced, straight forward and to the point, the action scenes are well‐described and of suspense, and it helps you to picture out the scenes as though you were watching it on a silver screen. Another thing about this book that deserves the praise, is the detailed description of many Greek gods in the Percy Jackson universe and of how each of them plays a role in the story, I also like how each of the gods has his/her own distinct personality according to the titles they respectively own, like Poseidon, the god of the sea who walks around in beach hats and brightly colored bahama shorts, much likely referenced to him being a beach‐goer. I’m very fond of this book and its story. I found it very fun, amusing and well worth reading. It has an interesting immense universe, a wonderful cast of characters to keep readers interested in and a whole new adventure unlike any others. If you ever find a chance to read the Lightning Thief, I would also recommend that you can read the seavels; I can assure you that the rest of the novels will be worth your time.
