I have been reading Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lighting Thief by Rick Riordan. It is based on Greek mythology and is packed with action and adventure. The main character is Percy Jackson. The setting is in Camp Half-Blood, which is located on Long Island, New York.
Percy Jackson finds out something big about him. Something that explains why he has dyslexia and ADHD and all the unusual things that has happened to him in the past. He is a demigod. A demigod is a half human and half God. Being a demigod isn’t exactly easy for Percy either. He gets chased by mythological monsters and has been either kicked out or blown up his schools.
Percy goes to this place called Camp Half-Blood. Camp Half-Blood is the only safe place in the world for people like Percy, demigods. When he got there, he gets claimed by his godly parent, which happens to be Poseidon god of the seas. Claimed is when a god gives someone some sort of sign saying who their son or daughter is. After Percy gets claimed, he soon gets granted a quest to retreve Zeus’s lightning bolt before the summer solstice. Zeus’s lightning bolt has been stolen and he thinks that Percy has stolen it because he is the son of Poseidon. A quest is when a demigod gets chosen by the Oracle to out of camp and do favors of errands for the gods. Percy wasn’t going on this quest alone, he is allowed to bring two companions with him. He chose to bring Annabeth Chase, a daughter of Athena and Grover Underwood, a satyr(half man half goat). Together they took off on a dangerous quest trying to save the world from chaos.
I would love to tell you more about the story in more detail, but you’ll have to read the book yourself. I really hope that my book review has made you want to read the book. I thought that this was an amazing book and I loved every single page. You should really check it out too.
