Lightning Thief, The (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 1) Rick Riordan read online review & book description:

Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can't seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse-Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him.

  • A Truly Amazing Book

    By Your #1649264829468288464 Fan!
    This book is full of adventure and will make you feel like you might have powers too. Rick Riordan must have put so much time into making this and that’s evident because he has made all these references and words that make since with the book. Like characters in the book might say something like, “Holy Hera!” If they’re surprised. I think that is so cool, and I could never do that in any of the papers my mom makes my write for homeschool. I love the slang, but that’s not all, there is so much possibility in this book and so little flaws. (And I also love the way he does the chapters with the name of the chapter being the character’s name in the book, in their perspective). I just want to say thank you to Rick Riordan for giving us something to do if we’re bored.

    I believe that this book is for 4th or 5th graders like someone named Lynn the elf recommended, it’s pretty intense and has a lot of battles, but that’s the best part about it!!!
  • LOVE IT!!

    I read this book and the others in the series and loved it. Read them again and again, and finally got my sister to read them. She went from reading nothing but Harry Potter to reading nothing but Percy Jackson. Adorable relationships and relatable, lovable characters throughout the series. Haven’t found a series this good since Harry Potter and Hunger Games 😉
  • Still amazing years later

    This book could not have made me more nostalgic then ever. It’s still just as fun a read as it was back in 6th grade and so glad I decide to pick up a copy to relive the amazing adventure of Percy Jackson. A must read!

  • Recommending this series!

    By booksforlife25
    I had read this series a few years back since our class had been learning about Greek Mythology at that time. My teacher for that class had recommended this series. I decided to give it a try, but stopped after the first chapter because I didn’t like it because it seemed to not catch my attention so much. Then a few months later, I decided to go back to this series and actually read it. I don’t regret it! The book was awesome, and now I’ve finished all the books in PJO, HOO, and I’m waiting for The Tower of Nero in TOA to come out. Rick definitely has made a few changes in mythology (by making it a bit more modern) in these books, but that didn’t make it bad at all. It made the plot and story more entertaining. If you’re looking for something entertaining with a fantasy plot, I’d recommend this series and all of rick’s books. They only get better and better!
