Tuesday Throwbacks: Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Lightning Thief
And it didn't. Was it the best thing I'd ever read. No by no means, but I found myself sucked into Percy's world from page 10. I have since seen the movie and felt it didn't do the book justice I left slightly outraged. I loved the characters so much in the book, the way the relationships were built, the time spent at Camp Halfblood and was so upset that they seemingly cut out that great time at the camp. I get it you have to show the fun stuff but reading about Camp Halfblood was the fun stuff for me. I eventually got the second book in the series on my Nook, but I haven't read it yet. I will review it at some point and post it for you guys.
Overall I thought The Lightning Thief was a nice intro to Percy Jackson and his world. I think its a nice fun read for anyone with children or anyone into fantasy series.
