I have seen the movies and have been thinking about reading the books too, but I'm afraid that it'll be boring and childish.
I love Greek mythology, though. Should I start reading these books or not? Makenzie First off, the movies do not do the books justice : But yes, definitely read the books!

I'm a teenager and I read the books a few years ago, but to this day it's one of my all-time favorite series.
Riordan is an amazing writer, and once you start his books, you can't put them down! He does a great job with combining mythology with the modern day, so the stories seem all the more realistic.
While the first book is projected towards a younger audience, it's still action-packed and captivating. As the series progresses, Percy, the main character, grows and gets older so by the final book in the series he's 16, so as he matures, the books get older as well.
I also recommend these books because Rick has a follow-up series, called the Heroes of Olympus Series, which is for an older audience. Some of the characters from the Percy Jackson series carry over, so I recommend reading the first series to better understand the second and I definitely recommend reading the follow-up series because it's just as good, if not better than the first.

I'm slightly ashamed to say that I watched the movie before I read the book. But I'm even more ashamed that I watched the movie only to experience the hotness that is Logan Lerman.
But, come on! Someone tell me that this , is not hot: Really. What did I tell you? I do imagine that you probably won't read the rest of the review anf just stare at this gif instead, but that's no reason not to like my review! I really do. Because without his unfreakingbelieveabl I'm slightly ashamed to say that I watched the movie before I read the book. Because without his unfreakingbelieveable hotness, I wouldn't have watched the movie, and I would've never read the awesomeness of The Lightning Thief.
Yes, I loved the book. I've always taken an interest in Greek Mythology and I thought Rick Riordan's take on it was very unique, and unlike anything I've read before. I absolutely loved Camp- Halfblood. Well, it sure seemed better than the budget summer camps I've been to. RR seriously out did himself with writing the camp. I could imagine everything vividly and I like to think that I know the camp from back to front.
The cabins would have to be my favourite feature of the camp, though. If only they were like that in the camps I've been to. What can I say? The guy has amazing underwater powers, is kick- ass and is a demigod. He's super loyal to his friends and family, is brave and has the looks this is the part when you look at the gif of Logan Lerman again ;D. And he can make me laugh. Come on. You have to give a guy who make you laugh some credit. In short, the guy's the full package. Another thing I loved were the other characters.
Especially Annabeth, who looks like Cinderella in Percy's words am I right? I don't have the book on me, sorry. Stupid library fines. And I'm expecting something to develop between her and Percy, if you know what I mean So, yeah. I loved the book, it was exciting, fast- paced and humorous. Just one thing though, I'm kind of pissed that they didn't have cabins in the movie.
Or Clarisse. Or the Oracle. Though it's hardly RR's fault. I just had to get it out there. View all comments. Eitan cohen the movi i really bad bu the books is ok Feb 23, PM.

I wish I hadn't watched the movie before reading it, because I felt like that ruined a bit of enjoyment of this book for me, but for the most part I had such a fun time reading this book and I'm looking forward to continuing on with the series.

When I was about halfway through this book, I started making a list of its similarities to Harry Potter. Here is a sampling from that list: 1. The heroes train at a school that divides its students according to their character.
Chiron, the head trainer of the camp, equals Dumbledore. Riordan's three young heroes face down a three-headed dog at the end of their big quest, which if I'm not mistaken is exactly what happens in HP1 granted, the three-headed dog is straight out of Greek mythology, so I should cut Riordan some slack on this one. I could go on and on and on which would be fun for me, but I won't.

Chapter Text. Chapter 1. Percy Jackson ran through the streets of Manhattan, tears streaming from his eyes. Flashes of his mother bleeding out on their apartment floor, of Gabe hitting him and dragging knives across his body haunted him.
