Will Percy Jackson get to the lightening bolt before the monsters get to him????
WOW. This book was AWSOME. It was so COOL. I would definitely read it again and again and again and again and I think you get the point. It was really good. I know that I say that about a lot of books but this one was out of this world (literally.) I would read it agin but I want to work my way through the series and then I will read the series many times over. Just like people read Harry Potter about a gazillion times over. I will read this series a gazillion times over.
The characters were described very well and the suspense….. Don’t get me started. There was a lot of suspense which made the book AWSOME and there was a little romance, betrayal, and all that fun stuff. It was really very good. It looked good to me but I did not expect it to be that good.
