Book Review: Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Finally got around to reading the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and I’m not regretting it! I really enjoyed The Lightning Thief and I’m already craving Sea of Monsters. I might just get it tomorrow or something.

The genre reminds me of my beloved Harry Potter books because it has the same sort of pattern and it’s just as fantastic. I love the idea of incorporating Greek gods into a story like this. Not only is it fun, I also felt my knowledge of ancient Greek myths and legends grow. I didn’t study Greek or Latin so I don’t know anything about all the stories about the gods.
I saw the movie before I actually found out it was based on a book. I loved the movie but both are totally different and that made the reading experience even more fun.

I enjoyed this book very much and if you haven’t read this one: you are missing out.

(I noticed I never really give a short summory but that’s why Goodreads exists, right?)
