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 t When I was about halfway through this book I started making a list of its similarities to Harry Potter Here is a sampling from that list1 There are three young heroes a brainy girl AnnabethHermione a funny screw up type GroverRon and a somewhat troubled but very brave lead HarryPercy2 People freak when the HarryPercy character says the name of a powerful character 3 The main bad guy KronosVoldemort is seeking to return to his former power but most people are totally in denial of that happening4 The heroes train at a school that divides its students according to their character Chiron the head trainer of the camp euals Dumbledore5 ChironDumbledore knows a prophecy about PercyHarry but won't tell PercyHarry what it is exactly6 PercyHarry has a gross stepfather named Smelly Gabe who protects him during his childhood so Smelly Gabe obviously euals the Dursleys 7 HarryPercy can talk to a certain animal because of his special gifts Harry could talk to snakes Percy can talk to horses 8 Riordan's three young heroes face down a three headed dog at the end of their big uest which if I'm not mistaken is exactly what happens in HP1 granted the three headed dog is straight out of Greek mythology so I should cut Riordan some slack on this oneI could go on and on and on which would be fun for me but I won't Instead I'll shock you by saying that I totally loved this completely derivative book It's super fun and fast moving and the fact that it's kind of a HP rip off actually makes me like it God I loved Harry Potter The Lighting Thief is like methadone That might be what I said about the The Amulet of Samarkand but it's true here I can't wait to read the second one

The Lightning ThiefO succeed on his uest Percy will have to do 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 powerful than the gods themselv Were you a bit weird in school? Or are you still in school and think you're kinda weird? I mean everyone is weird but you know that I mean Maybe you didn't fit in maybe people thought you were a bit of a loser Maybe you had learning difficulties were a target for bullies got into trouble a lot maybe it seemed like your teachers just didn't like you Maybe you sucked at reading and were even diagnosed with dyslexia Or ADHDWell don't worry Truth is you're actually most likely a child of the gods with secret powers that enable you to zap those bullies and fulfill your true destiny Screw school you've got bigger things to deal with anyway Lol this book is amazing My only regret is that I didn't have it when I was twelve years old because I would have read this until it was falling apart in my hands Every insecure kid so basically every kid should read The Lightning Thief I would want my hypothetical kids of the future to read this book It's the ultimate childhood fantasy discovering that everything people labelled as weird or negative about you is actually caused by your secret awesomeness Pretty perfect message if you ask me I know I know this is plain old childhood wish fulfillment at its finest But who cares? The best kids books are all about wish fulfillment to some extent and it's not like Percy Jackson doesn't have his fair share of enemies and heartache It's the same idea that we all loved to buy into The orphaned and neglected Harry Potter discovering he is a wizard The nerdy loser ish Peter Parker developing special abilities and becoming Spiderman Children in the middle of WWII discovering a secret world through a wardrobe door in which they reign as royalty Percy Jackson finding out he is the son of a god and has his own super powers On top of the powerful message this is a fast paced exciting fantasy story full of friendships Greek mythology magic mystery bad guys and girls and constant adventure I enjoyed it now despite me being a good ten years older than the target audience I would have enjoyed it even ten years ago You should definitely go read this Then when you're done give it to a kid to read tooBlog | Leafmarks | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Tumblr
