Description - Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (Film Tie-in) by Rick Riordan

Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek god. I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. That's when things started really going wrong. Now I spend my time fighting with swords, battling monsters with my friends and generally trying to stay alive. This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea. Can Percy find the lightning bolt before a fully fledged WAR OF THE GODS ERUPTS?

Book Review: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (Film Tie-in) by Rick Riordan - Reviewed by (15 Jan 2012)

I have to say that after seeing the movie I really wanted to read this series but having read this one I actually was disappointed. This is probably one instance where I preferred the film to the book.

The characters were a bit too one dimentional and cardboard and whilst it's a good tale with a good mix of pop culture and mythology (specifically greek mythology), it was really not as engaging as I expected it would be.

I guess I will persist with the rest of the series but not as a priority read. Who knows?- maybe it will improve with further adventures.
