Review: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1) by Rick Riordan

Goodreads summary:

Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school... again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus' master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.

Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus' stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.


My opinion:

Because it now takes too long for me to finish a series, I decided to do seperate reviews for each book.


I liked this book but sometimes it was just boring (I'm sorry for all the fans out there!).I didn't not care for the characters so much, I miss the index of all the gods at the end so I was confused most of the time (I understand the story in general though) and I guess I was just not in the mood for it, because I got distracted way too often and didn't pay that much attention to it.


I'm not sure if I want to continue this series or not, because I didn't fell in love with it, but maybe I'll give it a shot anyways! I asked on Goodreads if it would be worth it if I'll continue the series and everybody said yes... so yea.


I still appreciate it though because of the Greek mythology background.
