Percy Jackson & The Olympians Series

An excellent book series that I highly recommend to anyone interested in Greek Mythology or the Greek Gods like Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, and lots more. The series is about a boy named Percy Jackson who discovers he's a Demigod (half human/ half god) and is sent by his mom to a special Demigod camp called Camp HalfBlood which is a camp for training Demigods. Here's a description for the first book...

"Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.
Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves."

Trust me, once you start reading the book, you'll never stop!

BTW, the movie is sooooo much worse than the book.

That's good to hear. That movie looks awful and if it was on TV I'd probably watch an infomercial instead.

Re: Percy Jackson & The Olympians Series

Yeah, the movie didn't even follow key parts of the book. Rick Riordan wrote the book, but had nothing to do with the movie, so you can't blame him :P I'm reading the last book of the series now and it's excellent so far. In my opinion, the first book is the best of the series, followed by the 5th (and last), then the 4th, 3rd, and 2nd. And all the books were still good. None of them were bad at all. The second was the shortest, like 300 pages or something like that and I think the first is the longest with like 400 or somewhere around there.

EDIT- My bad, my page numbers were off :P I fixed them though.

Re: Percy Jackson & The Olympians Series

I just read up on the series and it does sound good but I doubt I'd get around to reading it. Btw I'm glad to see the author didn't drastically change the gods and other creatures. It's hard to put those characters into modern times but it seems like he did a good job by all the positive reviews I saw.

I saw the movie and I sort of liked it. If the book is better than the movie then I'll probably enjoy it. I'm yet to see a movie about a book that I like better than the book version.

I meant that the book was alot better than the movie. The movie was way too fast and left out alot of stuff in the book, but they had to unless they wanted like a 2 and a half hour movie

Re: Percy Jackson & The Olympians Series

Meh, not my kind of book. I prefer books that are darker, and deal with murder and the likes. I enjoy things that Thomas Harris writes, like Silence of the Lambs. I also enjoy Stephen King and Dean Koontz's writing.
These do look sort of promising though, no dramatic butchery of the Greek gods.

I enjoyed the movie (not as good as Clash of the Titans, either version) but still a good movie and I like a lot of the actor's that are in it.

Re: Percy Jackson & The Olympians Series

Rick Riordan is the author of the series. He has a few other series that I haven't read. He's going to make a sequel series to the Percy Jackson & The Olympians series, I don't know the details about it though.

I'm reading the first one for a school project. But I like the book so far. It's not the book I have to read that is annoying, but its the project I have to do.

Re: Percy Jackson & The Olympians Series

Rick Riordan is making a sequel series called "Heroes of Olympus" which is about three new heroes, but all the main characters from the last series are in it. The first two chapters are online. The first book is called "The Lost Hero" and thats because it is found out at the end of the second chapter that Percy Jackson has been missing for three days. It looks very cool and I can't wait to read the first book when it comes out in October of this year.

Re: Percy Jackson & The Olympians Series

I'm not too familiar with it but I heard some schools eliminate summer break and spread the time off through out the year. They don't go anymore than other kids(I think) but they end up in school in the summer.

Re: Percy Jackson & The Olympians Series

That sucks. I rather have 3 months off than have random times off during the whole year.
