Book Review: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (Film Tie-in) by Rick Riordan - Reviewed by rachthevego (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.
