  1. I m slightly ashamed to say that I watched the movie before I read the book But I m even ashamed that I watched the movie only to experience the hotness that is Logan Lerman.But, come on Someone tell me thatthis , is not hot Really What did I tell you I do imagine that you probably won t read the rest of the review anf just stare at this gif instead, but that s no reason not to like my review D But, I really have to thank Logan I really do Because without his unfreakingbelieveable hotness, I wo [...]

  2. A WritingA PlotA CharactersA MONSTERSI thoroughly enjoyed this book I wish I hadn t watched the movie before reading it, because I felt like that ruined a bit of enjoyment of this book for me, but for the most part I had such a fun time reading this book and I m looking forward to continuing on with the series.

  3. When I was about halfway through this book, I started making a list of its similarities to Harry Potter Here is a sampling from that list 1 There are three young heroes a brainy girl Annabeth Hermione , a funny screw up type Grover Ron , and a somewhat troubled but very brave lead Harry Percy.2 People freak when the Harry Percy character says the name of a powerful character 3 The main bad guy Kronos Voldemort is seeking to return to his former power, but most people are totally in denial of tha [...]

  4. Chiron looked surprised I thought that would be obvious enough The entrance to the Underworld is in Los Angeles As someone who has worked in Los Angeles, I can tell you that this is completely accurate.While Harry Potter was spending his summers at the Dursleys, Percy Jackson attended Camp Half Blood This book has done the impossible it has redeemed the name of Percy.Yes, that s right, that snot faced, lily livered waste of air of the very same name from the Harry Potter universe That name is no [...]

  5. i feel like this is one of those books you would stock in garages for decades until your children come across them and are suddenly forced to humanize you for the conceivably interesting creature that you were, and thus ameliorating your relationship with them while they are inspired to dreamummm can t wait to force my kids to read this tbh look, i didn t want to be a half blood x

  6. Were you a bit weird in school Or are you still in school and think you re kinda weird I mean, everyone is weird, but you know that I mean Maybe you didn t fit in, maybe people thought you were a bit of a loser Maybe you had learning difficulties, were a target for bullies, got into trouble a lot, maybe it seemed like your teachers just didn t like you Maybe you sucked at reading and were even diagnosed with dyslexia Or ADHD.Well, don t worry Truth is, you re actually most likely a child of the [...]

  7. A 82% Very GoodNotes It s sugar and caffeine a dulcet pop sonnet moved by rhyming couplets of worldbuilding and perilous confrontation.

  8. EDIT 09 06 2013 That s it I have had my fill of too many stupid, brain cell destroying comments posted on this review in the past few months asking me to write a best selling book before attempting to take apart Rick Riordan s writing As if the exclusive privilege of negatively criticizing a book is accorded only to published writers and not ordinary reviewers readers I do have the right to record my feelings about a book in my review And it s such a shame that I am actually being forced to put [...]

  9. Really is there something I could say that hasn t been said Doubtful, but in utterly stupid human style I will write a review anyway attempting to tell people how cool this book is.This is plainly anawesomeidea I had always wondered what happened to the kids of half gods goddess and humans Here s the story to quench your curiosity Percy Jackson has been dumped around from border school to border school He has never been quite like anybody else, but as the end of sixth grade approaches he ll find [...]

  10. My inner child is absolutely devastated that I didn t read this series when I was a kid Percy Jackson was one of those series that was always there, just on the periphery of my social conscious I knew I should read it, but for one reason or another I gravitated to other things instead Thankfully, as an adult who likes reviewing books for fun in my spare time, I have absolutely no shame about reading the series now, even if it was originally intended for a younger audience In some ways, I think I [...]

  11. Yet another review Well I feel like I ve rewritten updated my review of this like a billion times at this point, but I m here to do it again I re read this over the span of the past two days when I had to take two super long bus trips This was the third time I ve read the whole thing, I m pretty sure kind of the fourth time I guess, since I read a lot of it out loud to my younger siblings last year There are few books that I loved when I was 12 that I still deeply love now, and this is one of th [...]

  12. A list of reasons I love this book, brought to you by Nostalgia clickbait chapter titles middle grade book that doesn t write down to its audience percy jackson was my first book boyfriend and remains the most iconic of my middle school crushes I kind of like him better than harry potter he mails the severed head of a monster to the fucking gods bc they weren t being appreciative enough of him basically, the son of the sea god is literally and figuratively salty annabeth is only 12 yet so fuckin [...]

  13. The only word I can think of that s relevant to how I felt about this book is Fun, Fun, Fun Why in the world haven t I picked this book up when I was in middle school, I ll never know Lbr, what s in the past is in the past and I ll just have to get over the fact that I might have crawled out of my shy shell sooner if these books were in my life earlier On a positive note, I have the whole series on hand ready for me to binge as well as 2763274 other series to look forward to that s sorta winning [...]

  14. One of the Greatest Urban Fantasy s Beginning I ve ever read.Now as I join Hogwarts every September to May, I ll spend my Summers in Half Blood Camps.It s awfully late for me, I know But I was stubborn enough to not listen to 2 of my best half blood friends here on to visit the Olympians Gods the forces you call the Greek gods are very much alive I can t believe it s just Mr Rick Riordan s first novel.And Believe me if you didn t read ityou missed a real great seriesVery well written, well paced [...]

  15. Believe it or not, but this was actually my first Rick Riordan book ANDI really enjoyed it lol This was such an epic adventure and I loved the countless hints and references to Greek Mythology XD Rick Riordan s approach definitely was a than just funny one and I couldn t help but had to laugh out loud whenever Percy opened his mouth I swear that young boy is the embodiment of sass and the I read about him, the I got attached to this awesome boy 3 I want to adopt Perseus and if Poseidon doesn [...]

  16. this is a perfect book for young teenagers if you were trying to devise a formula for writing a perfect book for this age group, you could not have done much better than this.1 mysterious parentage kids are totally self absorbed some never grow out of it, of course, but in younger people, it is excusable their internal life makes up the majority of their experience, they are used to being the center of attention and they spend a lot of time thinking about themselves and fantasizing so having ro [...]

  17. I loved this book SO MUCH Great characters, awesome world, fantastic writing, entertaining story I can t think of any negatives I will be adding the rest of the series books 2 5 to my April TBR so I can read them ASAP

  18. I am FINALLY getting around to reading this series I thought the movies were okay, I do wish they would remake them and make them better, like the books Poor Percy Look, I didn t want to be a half blood If you re reading this because you think you might be one, my advice is close the book right now Believe whatever lie your mom or dad told you about your birth, and try to lead a normal life Being a half blood is dangerous It s scary Most of the time, it gets you killed in painful, nasty ways If [...]

  19. This was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed it I can obviously see the similarities to Harry Potter that everyone talks about, but being that I only read the first book in the HP series in 2017I didn t really care all that much, quite frankly I thought Percy s sarcastic wit made for a great narrator and, as always, I love it when mythology is tied into a story in a way I enjoy Looking forward to the rest of the series.

  20. Who knew middle school books could make me gush and squeal like a 12 year old I loves Can we just appreciate how muchFAN ARTthere is in this fandom If you re reading this because you think you might be one, my advice is close this book right now Believe whatever lie your mom or dad told you about your birth, and try to lead a normal life.This book is informative, interesting, funny, charming, it s just all of the above and I m already trash.The Lightening Thief,is the tale of Perseus Jackson, a [...]

  21. THE TIME HAS COME, GUYS I mean, I bought a copy like months ago and never knowing when I would read it but HERE I AM READING IT FOR THE FIRST TIME but I have watched the movie and I wish I hadn t watched the movie before reading the book but it happened before I became a reader REVIEW TO COME TOMORROWAll I can say now is FUCK I NEED THE SECOND BOOK THE REVIEW IS POSTEDto be honest, few months ago, I tried reading this book and then after I read a few pages, I just found it boring and then I just [...]

  22. Buddyread with the demigod squad , Jenn and Chara Illustrations by KAIAYAME Deadlines just aren t real to me until I m staring one in the face More like 3.5 stars to be honest I wish I had read this book when I was a kid I feel like 12 year old Kimi would have absolutely adored it That being said I still really enjoyed it as a 23 year old It was a pretty awesome little adventure and I m glad I read it Grover is definitely my favorite character of the series so far He s basically my spirit animal [...]

  23. person your name is percy like percy jackson me internally who tf is that yea i guess person is it short for perseus me s person OMG LITERALLY LIKE PERCY JACKSON YOU RE PERCY JACKSON me uhhhhh ok but my surname isn t jackso person PERCY JACKSONNNNNNN after that above conversation occurring approximately 1000 times in the space of like a month with 1000 different people, i should probably read this book and find out what the big deal is I GUESS.

  24. I ve read all I think of this series to my daughter, Celyn, but somehow this one escaped being reviewed until now.I half watched the film a year or two before we read this Actually it was Rick reading and being kind enough to review my own trilogy that steered me toward picking up these books for Celyn she s very disabled and can t read books for herself.Anyway, it was a very good read Celyn enjoyed the action and humour, and I enjoyed seeing the Greek legends I loved reading about as a kid give [...]

  25. How do I begin to explain the awesomeness that is this series Percy Jackson is flawless It has two Celestial bronze daggers and a sliver chariot I hear its pages are insured for 10,000.I hear it does Diet Coke commercials in Greece Its favorite movie is Disney s Hercules One time, it met JK Rowling on a plane and she told it it was the next Harry Potter One time, it punched me in the feels It was awesome

  26. Oh, what s this box TOMATOES Aw, now, you don t want to do this do you I swear I can explain Just hear me out, okay Had I read The Lightning Thief at 10, I would have loved it Hell, I just bought 15 copies for my pupils but unfortunately it failed to wow me this time around I know what you re thinking really, you re just too old for Middle Grade, why are you rating it on an adult scale I would be tempted to agree, except it s complex than that See, in this Middle Grade experiment I came across [...]

  27. Who s your favorite Greek god my cousin asked Poseidon, I answered immediately With that, she began to sell me on this seriesI originally wrote this one off as just another Harry Potter rip off which it basically is Don t believe me Half bloods and the fact that instead of a prep school for wizards it s a summer camp for bastards of Greek gods But it does have some good points, especially if you are a teacher trying to get your mid grade class interested in mythology I was put off by the way the [...]

  28. For some reason, I did not think I was going to like this book I was worried because it was a Middle Grade book, I wouldn t like it too much But no, I was so wrong I LOVED THIS BOOK Of course it wasn t perfect Some things that happened on this book are questionable, but then again, this is a Middle Grade book I shouldn t compare the writing or the depth of this book to an Adult book or even a Young Adult book.This series is even better than some of the YA Adult books I ve read.And no, I am not k [...]

  29. If you like Harry Potter, you will probably like this book, too Come to think of it, if you do not like HP, you may still like this book Recommended reading ages are grades 5 9 but if you re younger and like to read this book may very well be fine and, this book is actually written well enough for adults to enjoy as well Tale focuses on a 12 year old boy named Percy who isn t getting along with just about everyone in school and soon discovers part of his problems are related to the fact that he [...]
