Publisher's Summary

After a summer spent trying to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson finds his seventh-grade school year unnervingly quiet. His biggest problem is dealing with his new friend, Tyson, a six-foot-three, mentally challenged homeless kid who follows Percy everywhere, making it hard for Percy to have any "normal" friends.

great family fare

My 11 and 9-year-old kids (a boy and a girl) have really enjoyed this series and I have gotten caught up in it too. The story is fun and engaging. There are a series of battles and challenges and plenty of suspense, but it is all laced with humor. The books have also gotten my kids very interested in learning about Greek mythology-- bonus! The reader is pretty good with voices and does a convincing teenage narrator. I'm glad they've chosen to go with the same reader for both books in the series so far and hope they continue. The first book in the series is called the Lightening Thief.

Genuinely Wonderful Teen Writer

My teenage daughter loves to read and has thoroughly enjoyed Riordan's books. I have also read these stories and they are very well written. I am an extremely difficult to please reader and I actually enjoyed this book. I prefer paper to my MP3 but the plot and story line was well thought out and planned. The flow is great and the Greek history or Greek God stories actually play a phenomenal part in the stories. The way the author flows the historical stories of the Greek gods with the present is inspiring and just fun. He leaves something for the next book and keeps you wanting more. I believe Rick Riordan is very talented writer and I read about 30 to 40 novels per year and listen to the same amount.
