Percy Jackson is a good child who has trouble paying attention in class and keeping his temper in check. Being away at boarding school has gotten progressively more difficult as of late; Percy is convinced that his pre-algebra teacher has transformed into a monster and is actively trying to murder him. When Percy’s mother finds out, she will demand that he travel to the one place where he would be secure and tell him the truth about where he came from. She sends Percy to a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island) called Camp Half Blood, where he discovers that Poseidon, God of the Sea, is the father he never knew. As the plot thickens, Percy teams up with two unlikely companions—a satyr and the demigod daughter of Athena—and travels across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (which happen to be in a recording studio in Hollywood) in an effort to stop a god-on-god war.

The Lightning Thief Book Summary
I enjoyed all the allusions to Greek mythology and how grand this trip was! XD The technique taken by Rick Riordan was more than merely humorous, and I found myself giggling out loud every time Percy spoke.
That kid has had to be the epitome of sass, and the more I read about him, the more I adored him. If Poseidon doesn’t want Perseus, that’s his fault, not mine. XD
After finishing the first book, I still don’t feel like I know Annabeth very well. Overall, she was simply too restrained for my taste, which is a shame because I’m more than just convinced that she’s actually a very cool girl and she seemed like an interesting character and I appreciated their casual banter. (Aside from that, I thought it was hilarious when she referred to Percy as “Seaweed Brain”! I’m sure there were a lot of ways it could have been a lot worse. he laughs (;-P)
Oh, and Grover? Apparently, I shared your fondness for Grover. Even if his penchant for eating tin cans gave me pause, I’m not going to pass judgement on his questionable eating habits. XD After all, he means well, and in the end, that’s all that really matters. ;-P I really do hope he makes it through his own journey unscathed, and I can’t help but wonder whether we’ll meet him again in a later volume.
Since I can’t manage to catch the “Percy Jackson” bandwagon before it leaves the station, I’ve decided to call it quits. Honestly, I can’t think of anything to write or say that hasn’t already been stated. In fact, there are 73,916 ratings and comments on goodreads. (I had to look it up, too. ;-P) I mean, that pretty much sums everything up, right? XD
However, if you haven’t read the book yet and are interested in doing so, consider the following:
Ignore the gloomy weather of late fall, grab a copy of “The Lightning Thief,” and settle in for a spine-tingling experience.
