Three Customer Reviews of The Lightning Thief

by Rick Riordan [j Riordan]

I absolutly loved this book. I refused to read it at first, because I thought it was a boy's book, not a girl's book, and then one of my classmates did a review on it, so I thought, well, maybe it's okay but I am very strong willed so I stuck to my first decision, and refused to read it. But then my teacher said that we had to read it in the next three weeks, if we hadn't already, so I started it the next day, and didn't put it down for the next 6 hours. I just kept reading, and up till then I hated reading, and now I love it. It was this book that changed my mind about reading being bad. I think I have five books I am currently reading, and hope to finish soon. If you're able to read chapter books, this book is for you. It is for boys and girls and I love it. -- review submitted by Teresa G. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library

This book takes you on a thrilling adventure while you learn about the greek gods. In this book Percy is claimed by Posiden, the god of the sea. Percy and his friends except a quest given to them by chiron to go and get Zeus's lightning bolt for Hades, the god of the underworld. This book leaves you wanting to read more. Once you get into the book you will not want to put it down. This is a fast and easy read and highly suggest that you read this book. -- review submitted by Haleigh L. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library

This was a great book with mystery and an amazing troop to find their through. It had creatures with names that I can't pronounce. But for the most part I pronounced them just fine. I love this book because it had a lot of mythology. I think that all of you should read this book. -- review submitted by Taylor V.O. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library
