Exciting! Riordan dropped enough clues to keep me guessing throughout (allowing me to make a few accurate predictions), but provided so many twists and surprises that most prediction attempts were thwarted. I loved it! ( )

Totally engaging. ( )

Fun, fresh look at the Greek gods in contemporary times. And what adventure reader wouldn't appreciate that the hero is a boy, Percy Jackson, half-god and son of Poseidon.

Percy has ADHD and dyslexia and has managed to get himself expelled from one school or another for his behavior. At the end of his 6th grade year, odd incidents are happening: Percy vaporizes his pre-algebra teacher when she tries to attack him; his best friend Grover has a strange conversation about him with teacher Mr. Brunner; and the weather is freakishly stormy. There’s an explanation it turns out: Percy is a half-blood, the son of Poseidon, and the gods Zeus, Poseidon and Hades are warring over Zeus’ stolen lightning bolt. If something isn’t done by the summer solstice, it means serious trouble for the world...and Percy learns he has a big part to play in the resolution.

My kids love this series. I read these book to my children and hope to read them to my grandchildren some day. Great story telling. ( )

Fairly predictable; some new gods show up to help Percy; he fights some new monsters, he cracks some more jokes, his friends help him; the do-my-parents-care theme continues, but beyond that not a lot else is new. Some tragedies occur, but only to some throw-away characters, it seems. All in all, the story continues, and its a fun story, but nothing to write home about. We start the next one and hopefully it will add some spice to our life. ( )

So it's funny, but it's also very exciting, with the gods behaving in that disgraceful and unpredictable way that gods do. Then there are the really bad guys. If you're familiar with these ancient characters, you'll be impressed by how Riordan handles them. If they're new to you, it's a gripping introduction.
Readers who are familiar with ancient mythology will enjoy Riordan's tongue-in-cheek approach; those who aren't just might be tempted to go to the original sources to learn more.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0141321261, Paperback)

This is the third book in the most exciting commercial fantasy adventure series since "Artemis Fowl". Now in paperback with a thrilling new cover look. It's the last Friday before the winter holidays but Percy Jackson isn't at school: he's battling the fearsome Manticore (half human, half lion), which in itself isn't ideal...but with Annabeth missing and the goddess of the hunt held captive, things get a whole lot more serious...Greek mythology relocated to modern-day America. Action-packed, funny, accessible writing for both boys and girls aged 10 and above. This title is perfect for fans of "Harry Potter" and "Artemis Fowl".
