Goodreads’ View:
Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can’t seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse—Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him.

When Percy’s mom finds
out, she knows it’s time that he knew the truth about
where he came from, and that he go to the one place he’ll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea.

Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends—one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena—Percy sets
out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.

What I Think.
This book had my eyes bulging and widening! It gave a lot of “ahs” and “ohs” and made me fall against my pillow in open-souled amazement. I fell in love with this Greek-mythology-themed story right from the first page.

Percy had to find Lord Zeus’ lightning bolt and Hades’ helm of death.  Man! Was I wowed? I carried it everywhere I went. The Lightning Thief gave me so much feels! Percy, Annabeth and Grover were a fabulous trio.

If you love Greek myths and fantasy, you’ll definitely love this book.
