Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief should be required to be read by all freshmen. This book would have been wonderful when studying Greek mythology. It is the story of a half blood, a boy named Percy who is the son of a god and a mortal woman. His life has never run smooth, and in this book it gets even worse. An amazing adventure worthy of Homer himself, Percy is forced to go to places only heard of in stories, and on the way encounters divine beings long ago forgotten by modern society. This book explained the Greek gods and their relations better than any text book could ever hope to. It is simple and easy to understand, and written in a language that doesn’t make us want to fall asleep after half a page. Its plot will capture you and will keep your imagination at work long after you have turned the last page. Unfortunately, it will catch your wallet as well. This book is the first in a series of five. While the Percy’s story does not end here, it is the introduction to something much bigger. I recommend this book to everyone, even if it’s too late to take advantage of its Greek mythology information.
