Book Review: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

I just finished up the first book in the Percy Jackson Series, The Lightning Thief. I have heard nothing but great things about this book and I would have to say that it didn't disappoint.

There were a few things I loved about this book. The first one being the style in which it was written. I love that it was a first person point of view. You were hearing directly from Percy throughout the whole book. I love when authors do that. The other thing that I loved was all of the background and references to the mythological gods. It was great to have that since I'm not exactly an expert in that field and would have had a hard time following along if there had not been the background on them.

Overall, I would give this book a 5/5. It was a page turner that had plenty of drama and suspense to keep me up into the wee hours of the morning reading it. To be honest, I haven't gotten into a book as much as I did this one in a long time. It was refreshing and I can't wait to read the next one.
