The Lightning Thief (YA)

The Lightning Thief (YA)

This is the first book in a young adult series.  I am really glad I saw the movie before reading the book--otherwise, I would have hated the movie.  The movie left out tons of book action!  In the book, Percy Jackson discovers he is a demi-god:  half human, half god. He goes to Half Blood Camp to figure out which god is his father and after that, he is sent on a quest.   His quest is to find the stolen lightning bolt of Zeus and return it to the mighty god.  This book had tons of action, great characters (I loved Grover--Percy's protector who is a goat disguised as a human) and a lot of humor.  I have the rest of this series on my Kindle and look forward to reading them.  These books can span the YA audience and adults could love them too.

  1. The book was definitely better than the movie, but I enjoyed them both.Or maybe I enjoyed being able to discuss them both with my daughter.
