5.0 out of 5 stars ripping yarns for all, April 22, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Percy Jackson pbk 5-book boxed set (Percy Jackson & the Olympians) (Paperback)
I got totally involved in these books, which I was supposed to be checking out for suitability for my 11 year old grandson. Luckily I won't be seeing him until May as, once I started reading, I was not going to give the books over.

I KNOW they were written for teenagers but I was kept completely enthralled by the story telling. There were definitely shades of Tolkein and Harry Potter there but Riordan has taken the basics and produced heroes in his own inimitable style. I just needed to keep on finding out what happened next.

I was glad to have been able to read the complete set of books straight off, much better, IMHO, than reading one and then having to wait another year or so for the next installment.

I shall be watching out for more of this author's series of books.
