    It's a series for children, I know, but don't we all need to reconnect with our inner-child sometimes? And this is perfect for pleasure reading. At least if you can find humour in ancient Greek mythology in connection with American younger readers' pop-culture. And now that I'm done with the first three I cannot wait to get my hands on the others. It's a series for children, I know, but don't we all need to reconnect with our inner-child sometimes?

    Beats the pants off Harry Potter. Wonderful YA literature, and one of the few YA works that doesn't draw a thick black line between boys and girls (while, at the same time, it paints a light, subtle and entirely realistic picture of a normal boy's dawning awareness that girls exist). You can tell Riordan knows his Greek myths inside and out, loves them, and gets it.

    I loved it. I finished the first book, The Lightning Theif, in a day. It's awesome. I kept thinking how good it would be to read this to any kid, especially those with struggles like ADHD and dyslexia. The struggles these kids have turn out to be a blessing. Instead of not seeing correctly, it's that they see overly well. They're given superpowers and are more than mortals. It's a really fun read based on Greek mythology in modern times. I loved it.

All the books of this series were very good. Although I did enjoy all of them, the one that was more interesting was the third book. The third book was 'Percy Jackson and the Titan's Curse'. This book, in my opinion, had the most adventure. They lost and gain new people throughout their 'Prophecy'. None of the other books really had that in them.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Honestly, this was one of the best series I have ever read in my life (no kidding). The plot twists and how Rick Riordan introduces the new characters and monsters are truly pulling me in to read more. I can't wait to read the 4th and 5th book to finish the series. At the end of book three, it ends with a cliffhanger, with makes my dyingly want to know more. I can't believe all three of the main gods all had children! Percy and Nico who appear more in the story, are truly contrasting characters. Honestly, this was one of the best series I have ever read in my life (no kidding).

Even though Thalia joined the hunters and Zoë Nightshade, Bianca Di Angelo have given their lives in the quest, they are also apart of the hunters, which is lead by the goddess Artemis. My friend told me that, After Nico hears that his sister has passed away, he turns into an emo kid. Percy is still the same. Always getting kicked out of school and fighting monsters with is pen-sword, Riptide. So far, my favorite books of the series were the Sea of Monsters and the Titan's Curse. If you are interested to read books about Greek Myths, and truly want to read an amazing book, I recommend this Series, Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

    Percy Jackson. The Percy Jackson series was my favorite series in middle school and I kept up with Heroes of Olympus throughout high school and some of Trials of Apollo in college. I will start crying when I read a new book with Percy in it because I genuinely miss him as a character when he hasn’t showed up in a book for a while. I’m actually in the same place as all my PJO/HoO books right now and I am seriously considering a full re-read. - I didn't realize there were more. Probably should have Percy Jackson.

    This series was one of the most fun in fantasy fiction, for me! It is real, to the point, very tongue and cheek and almost always full of surprises. For instance when Percy steps out of the 'elevator' that takes his trio to Olympia, he steps out and 'nearly has a heartattack!' It has fantasy mixed with very real human emotions. None of the thinking about mankind and the greater good conflict, this guy wants to know which bully will beat him up in his next school and who his mum will date next.

    The two stars are mainly because of my history with this book, plus the fact that he wrote it for his son. I used to love these books, they were very favorite books when I read them and Riordan was, as far as I was concerned, a genius. Then I read some other things, and I got interested in some other books that became my favorites instead of these, but I still remembered these books as really, really great. Then, a couple of weeks ago, I reread the series. I had been reading about them online and The two stars are mainly because of my history with this book, plus the fact that he wrote it for his son.

Then I read some other things, and I got interested in some other books that became my favorites instead of these, but I still remembered these books as really, really great. Then, a couple of weeks ago, I reread the series. I had been reading about them online and hearing about them, mostly some negative things, and I was wondering if I had been wrong the first time I read them. Well, it turns out I was, at least in my opinion. First, the writing is junk. I am not saying the plot or the characters (yet), I am saying the writing. I recognized what I saw here, and I can recognize this in all of his kids books. This was a guy who didn't know how to write, and knew this about himself, but was clever, and put just enough more-or-less witty remarks and corny jokes in to distract the readers from the fact that he can't write. I recognize his inability to write in his adult books, too. Even though he has written many, many books by this point, both before and after Percy Jackson, he can't exactly write a book. The next thing which irritated me were the jokes on their own. Just bad. It was funny at times, I admit that. And in the first couple of chapters it's fine. But by the time you are third of the way into the first book and have been hearing these not-so-witty, not-so-funny "jokes" then I kind of just wanted to throw the book out of the window. When a series has a couple of remarks like this scattered about, and used at important times, then it's funny, or at least one can stand it. But just the jokes every five seconds were making me claw my own eyes out. Maybe I am being unreasonable about this one, but I found his portrayal of the Greek Gods and Goddesses to the very, very disrespectful. Particularly Dionysus got on my nerves. He was a God that, like all of the others, was worshipped by people for many years as a big part of their lives, and in Percy Jackson he is depicted as a loser he gets drunk on soda! Riordan does similar things with other Gods and Goddesses. I wouldn't mind them being in the series if he was just a bit more respectful. I also was bothered by the main character's dyslexia. Obviously, I was not bothered that the main character has dyslexia, what bothered me was how Riordan made having dyslexia be like. At one point, Percy (main character) sees a sign that says "Private Event" as "Pirate Event" I have researched dyslexia a lot (for personal reasons, long before I read Percy Jackson for the first time) and no one with dyslexia would have seen "Private" as "Pirate". In the fifth book, Percy sees "Gods" as "Dogs" not only is this one highly unlikely (if even possible), it also contrasts what he wrote in the first book. (For example, wouldn't he more likely see "gods" as "os", since he couldn't see the R or the V in "Private"?) . I feel like he could have made the dyslexia more realistic--it is not something to laugh about, it's a real obstacle in the lives of people who have it. This annoyed me the first time I read this book, too, but I got past it. This book series also totally copied Harry Potter, but without a lot of the things that made Harry Potter a work of art. Lots of books now have slightly copied minor things from that series, but never a complete copy, and never as bad as Riordan. For example, the main character has messy black hair and green eyes, and has never had many friends (Harry/Percy) and is raised by at least one abusive member of their family (The Dursleys'/ Percy's stepfather). Next, he finds out he is has magic and gets a special weapon (Harry's wand/Riptide) and he goes to school to learn about his magic (Hogwarts/Camp-half-blood) he meets a very wise teacher who he likes (Dumbledore/Chiron) and one teacher that he doesn't like (Snape/Dionysus. Though Snape was a much better and more complex character then Dionysus was in Percy Jackson). The main character's two best friends are boy who is very loyal, but not that smart (Ron/Grover) and girl who is brilliant but can be a little bit of a know-it-all sometimes (Hermione/Annabeth). There is a boy with longish blonde hair who is cruel to the main character (Malfoy/Luke), and a set of mischievous brothers (Fred and George/Travis and Connor) and set of twins where one dies (Fred and George/Caster and Pollux). The villain's name is not supposed to be said (Voldemort/Kronos), and at some point the main character is known for surviving something no one has before (Harry survived the killing curse/Percy reached sixteen), there is a character who is not in the series very much, but is very kind and nice to the main character, but he dies (Cedric/Beckendorf) and this character was also dating a girl who was nice enough but cried a lot (Cho Chang/Silena Beauregard). I could go on. It appears that Ridordan had a pretty good idea for a book series, but couldn't think of a plot so he found one that had already been used and was popular, but changed it slightly. In short, I can't think of Percy Jackson as anything more then a cheap, Harry Potter rip-off.

    "Percy Jackson And The Olympians" is one of my favorite book series. I love gods and goddesses, so the Percy Jackson books have lots of them. The books made me feel powerful. They made me feel powerful because when I read a book I imagine my self as one of the characters. The characters had powers and the defeated Kronos. I read the next series and it was amazing.

    This is a cute series for children. I didn't read into it at all (there were probably large plot holes looming that I just purposefully ignored), because I wanted a brainless, fun read. Percy Jackson definitely delivered. This is a cute series for children.

    Percy Jackson and the Olympians My opinion of Percy Jackson and the Olympians is that is a really complicated book because percy gets a lot of problems and then he has to solve. In this book is when Percy gets to know that he is the son of Poseidon. Since he is the son he has to learn how to control the power and what will happen in his life time since he is a god. I recommend this book to all the teenagers., I read this book like 2 times already.

The second time was like 2 weeks ago. My favorite part of the book is when he gets to save his mom from the Clutches of Hades, the god of the underworld. I like this part most because it tells how Percy fight for his mother and how all the training help him save his mother. I also liked this part of the book because I like how in the book they explained the fight between him and the god of the underworld.

    Percy Jackson is an entertaining read that I immensely enjoyed. The first two books weren't the best in the series, but if you can make it through them, the series gets way better. I loved the characters and seeing their growth—a good story, in my opinion, tugs at all your emotions by the end, which this does. The characters have to make sacrifices by the end, and it isn't all rainbows, which I like. If you like this series, check out Rick Riordan's THE HERO'S OF OLYMPUS series, which follows so Percy Jackson is an entertaining read that I immensely enjoyed.

Violence- Teenagers are often depicted in combat and some to die. Most of the more graphic violence depicted happens to monsters, such as heads or limbs being cut off. Language- Very minor Drug- Some minor mention of wine Sex-N/A

    Me gustan mucho estos libros porque antes de leerlo tenía una vaga idea de los helenos o griegos y sus dioses.

Osea por una parte eso está bien, porque o si no te decepcionarías mucho, pero en mi parecer necesita más drama. Tampoco quiero parecer sanguinaria o depresiva, pero me gustan los finales trágicos o tristes. Tengo muchas ganas de leer la siguiente saga. Rick Riordan es un genio.

    A very good book series by Rick Riordan . the best thing I like about the book is how intricately Rick Riordan has written the story and unified the Greek mythology with the modern world . the unification in itself makes it stand apart from a normal fantasy books. Note: don't ever think of watching the movie without considering the book first . if you've read it , I don't think it's worth watching the movie. It's a terrible adaptation . I know all the PJs fan would agree with this..
