finally read The Lightning Theif!

The Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan

This is definitely a book for middle grade school kids, with that in mind i still rather enjoyed it. Camp Half-blood being my favorite part.

I saw the movie forever ago but i dont recall a lot of the stuff in this book happening in the movie? also im pretty sure Percy fought Luke in the first movie, which i believe happens in the second book, not that i have read it yet, just a guess.

Grover was fantastic and similar to the movie version (I think, its been a while) the others where pretty good as well but Grover stood out for me.

The God theory, moving from civilization to civilization was really interesting and is something im looking forward to learning more about.

 

Will i be reading the next book?

Yes.

 

Who would i recommend to?

Depending on ones reading level, but grade 5 +
