Rating: AMAZING: Stop everything that you’re doing and read this book RIGHT NOW!
I wanted to read this book because my brother suggested that I read it. This story is about demigod Percy Jackson, son of Poseidon, being sent on a quest to find Zeus’s master lighting bolt, because he was accused of stealing it. Right before even finding out he was a demigod, Percy’s mother was attacked by the Minotaur, which Percy defeated. Percy’s didn’t even know his best friend Grover was a centaur. At camp half blood he meets Annabeth, and soon both them and Grover are on the quest for the master bolt…
What I liked about this book is it is so perfect for every reader. Both girls and boys will be pleased with this book. It has action but is not dark or bloody. It is also very funny; I have literally found myself laughing out loud! One of my favorite parts was when Percy got advice from a poodle! I thought Percy was funny but serious when he had to be.
I would give this book 5 stars. I would recommend this book to all my friends because it is so funny and action packed. I do not think some people will like it and others not. I think everyone will like this book because it is so awesome. This book did not remind me of anything else I have ever read, it is breathtakingly one of a kind.
