Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief
is the first bestselling book in Rick Riordan's phenomenally successful Percy Jackson series.

Half boy. Half God. ALL Hero.

Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek God.

I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. Now I spend my time battling monsters and generally trying to stay alive.

This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea.

Bookworm Hazel ,


I read the series and heroes of Olympus and the trials of apollo and the cane chronicles and the demigod diaries and the demigod files and demigods and Egyptians. Percy Jackson is my fave cos it is what started my love of Greek myths and a lot of other things. Anyone can read this it is AMAZING. Lots of humour, action and Greek myths, a must read. If u watched the movie and didn't read the book READ IT NOW ur missing ouT
P.S. the second movie is a complete lie

Percy Jackson

Awesome story. A couple of mistakes when it has been typed up but nothing major and the story is so good that it doesn’t matter
