The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series #1)

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series #1) - Catchy name. Awesome book! Greek mythology is something that I love very much! My first book about Greek mythology was this, of course though when I was a kid I used to watch and read a lot of ancient Greek stories. It was fascinating. Percy Jackson is a demi - god and unfortunately he had angered one of the main Gods of Mount Olymups, Zeus. Rumors have it that he had stolen Zeus's lightning bolt. And so, Percy with two of his friends embark on an adventurous journey to retrieve Zeus's bolt and clear Percy's name. On his journery he does manage to anger a few other gods also.This book was really good. Much better than what I expected. It was suggested to me by my friend who had vague memories about it but promised me it was a good read.And so, I ate this book within a day. I loved Percy, he was a strong twelve year old. And I also loved the Greek gods and how Riordan had portrayed them in this book. He portrayed them in such a way that the Greek Gods were fun to read about.It was a fun book to read. And I loved the rest of Percy Jackson's series.
