Oh my days.

I picked up Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief after seeing the trailer for the forthcoming film version, and thinking “that looks mighty cool.”

These books are wonderful. 5 in all, they tell the adventures of Percy Jackson, son of Poseidon, and his struggles to be a normal teenager, who happens to have a cyclops half-brother, girl troubles with a daughter of Athena, and is waging a war against the newly risen Titan Lord, Kronos. These books are SICK GOOD. I mean, I’m a slow reader, and I finished the series in little over a week. They are so well written, with characters so brilliantly developed, that you become attached right away, and any time you peel your mind away from the world, you realize how fully immersed your imagination has been. It truly was the greatest reading experience I’ve had in quite a long time. Can’t recommend them highly enough! I just wish there were more books! Get cracking Rick! I need more Percy!!
