Our customer reviews

OMG, I loved this story. In the beginning I really needed to put the movie out of my head and I tried to see it a different way. I really like the writing style of Rick Riordan. The story has a lot of plot twists and it gives me a Harry Potter-like feeling (which I love). It's a very fast-paced story and within a 100 pages or so you're entirely inside the story. I liked the main character, Percy(who sometimes reminds me of Harry). He seems to be a very normal kid and is easy to relate to. This book was an amazing read and I really enjoyed the mythological aspects, which make me want to read about myths again. So I just loved this story, everything about it. I give it 5 out of 5 stars!!show more
