Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

Did you ever have to read Mythology in high school?  I had to, and I didn't love it.  I thought it was interesting, but I just couldn't get into the stories like I could other books.

However, Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief is fantastic!  Obviously this book isn't intended for a 26 year old woman to read, but it is wonderful.  It's fast-paced, page turning adventure that everyone loves.  I enjoyed this book so much more than I thought I would.  I read it because a lot of my students are reading it, but it turned out so much better than I ever imagined.

If you want a fantasy, easy to read, entertaining book this is a great one!  And it's a series of 5, plus Rick Riordan just came out with the first book in a new series that is a spin-off of this series.

Happy reading!
