Day 90: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
Summary From Goodreads:
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.
It’s time for another edition of Frodo’s Hobbit Sized Reviews! This is where I write a review in the time I have before I go to work or before I go to bed. Short and sweet just like 2nd breakfast!
I, of course, had heard great things about the Percy Jackson series but had never started it until now. The first book in the series, The Lightning Thief is a fun, humorous adventure as the main character Percy gets acquainted with this world filled with all sorts of deities and creatures he thought were just myths. A thrill ride from start to finish I breezed through the book and couldn’t put it down. It was a light read and I look forward to reading the rest of the books in the series. The characters were compelling, the writing was fantastic, and it really was quite funny. Thanks as always for reading and come back tomorrow for Day 91!
