I regret not reading these books sooner. The story is really action packed and hilarious. It was fun to watch the characters go on their adventures and evolve as individuals. I really liked the modern twist to each of the gods. Despite the fact that this book is supposed to be for kids, it's a great series for people of all ages. I got myself this box set as soon as I had a few bucks. I look forward to reading Riordan's HoO series and the Kane Chronicles.
I originally wanted to get the hardcover box set with the first edition covers, but it was too expensive. I decided to get the paperback edition with John Rocco's new art on it instead. These covers are amazing. They make me want to keep reading the books over and over again. I highly recommend these books to anyone and everyone.
I'm so much in love with Percy' world.
Percy is a very strong character.
He's charming, funny, brave, weak, and some times dumb(laugh).
His comment always make me laugh so hard, but have to agree with him at the same time.
I don't know how the author could create such a world of myth so strong like this.
I went from nearly no knowledge about Greek myth (except for Poseidon who has been my favourite god since I was little) to be quite a good presenter about the gods...(laugh).
The story in this series felt so Real you could question yourself 'did I miss something?'.
All the characters are also so great.
Not enough good words for this series.
Absolutely The must read, and the must have books (not only kindle, believe me, they are worth to be kept as book too!)
PS: It just happened to me to want to write the review after 7 years since finishing the books....weird (laugh)
If you like greek mythology and adventure books, you will likely love these, and I encourage you to take a chance and read the first one. You'll fall in love. By the end of the series, you'll be so attached to the characters, you'll want there to be more stories about them (check out Heroes of Olympus, because there are). It really doesn't matter what age you are, if you like adventure and greek mythology, you'll enjoy these books.
Five stars for the book series itself, and 2.5 stars for the paper back set. I'm extremely careful with my books, and the first book had the front cover get bent into a crease the first day of reading it. Being a perfectionist, I was not happy how easily these books get damaged. I can't imagine how bad they might bent up if a kid handled the book roughly. The artwork is pretty, the books should just be more durable.
The books are also so snuggly packed into the display box, that I worry I'll bend the pages or they'll be damaged trying to slide them back in. I highly recommend spending the extra money and getting the hardcover version instead.
Overall excellent, just get the hardcovers or buy more durable papercover of each book.
