After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson finds his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson—a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any "normal" friends.

the first book lighting thief. I first thought it was going to be dull, but as I read it
it was more interesting and In finished it, wishing for more. The second one I just got
is explaining who is who from the first book and some knew are mentioned.
It holds you attention and for young or old to enjoy, if you like stories of mythology.
It's well written and there's other ones following this one. There are five books in all with
this. If you are looking for adventure in a book this may be what you're wanting. I can't wait
for the other ones. (JV).
I am a 11 year old girl and I love this . Please try this . You won't know anything by reading just one chapter , at least read the first two or three .
Thank you Rick Riordan !
Kudos to Mr. Riordan for creating believable heroes and heroines who can help our ADHD/dyslexic young people realize they aren't stupid but are people who see the world in a different way than others and are valuable to our society because of their so-called "learning disabilities". They are in fact some of our greatest minds because of their abilities and creativity that "normal" people lack providing they don't allow the word-oriented school system to convince them that they are dumb or without value. I also appreciate his challenging vocabulary without it being so difficult that young readers would give up while mixing it up with current common lingo. Great series! Can't wait to start the next book!
Less than 3 hours, to be precise.
I love that Percy is a teenager. I love that his emotions are all over the place with regards to people in his life. He wants so desperately to have approval from his Father yet he's angry with him for being abandoned. He wants to understand the world he lives in and yet he rails against it.
Like its predecessor, the book moves fast and we get enough action to get us to the next point. Each scene is succinct and not drawn out and overly written. I do like this but felt in some cases, it was too short. The entire goal of the book was wrapped up rather quickly and to me, felt too easy. Yes, there were additional twists that happened as we got past it but .. it just felt too fast & easy at times.
That said, I'd read it again and recommend it to others. We learn more about Percy's life and his destiny and we get to see familiar faces in new roles. Not everything is as it seems.
