Publisher's Summary

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. That's when things started really going wrong. Now I spend my time fighting with swords, battling monsters with my friends, 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.
Can Percy find the lightning bolt before a fully-fledged war of the Gods erupts?

Outstanding!!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson, Book 1 to be better than the print version?

Yes, I recall reading the print version in primary and I really did like it but never considered reading the other books. But when I listened to it I was hooked.

What did you like best about this story?

The action and adventure, the emotion. The precise use of greek mythology spun into it, all real myths.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was when Percy, Grover and Sally were fighting their way to camp half-blood. It was action-packed, and very emotional.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this book.

I love young Adult Non Fiction (31)

Very entertaining and a great action book... I definately have learnt more about Greek Mythology and am committed to listen to the entire series, if it keeps up the pace...

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

A brilliant story which will appeal to teenagers, young Percy Jackson is struggling at school with his dyslexic and ADHD if thats not enough his math teacher turns into a monster and trys to kill him!
This book is much better than the film. After listening to this I was pretty sure my dyslexic was because I was also a demi god!
A wonderful story which will inspire young minds!

Good Story

Solid story.
The voices of the gods could have used some variation but besides that. Good listen.
