Percy Jackson: a review by Daniel.e/gamechanger

Danny.E Gamechanger946

Title: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief
Author: Rick Riordan
Format: paperback
pages: 375
price: $9.00

Percy Jackson the Lightning Thief is a good book in many ways. First the book is very breath-taking and has lots of action. It also is kind of sad in some parts. In the beginning of the book a boy named Percy Jackson gets kicked out of a school called Yancy Academy. Then he finds out that his best friend is half goat. Grover, the best friend, is Percy's protector. My favorite part in the book was when Percy and Grover were driving to the camp that his dad wanted him to go to. They were getting chased by a huge demon thing, and they crashed, and the demon thing charged at them.  The demon thing got his horn stuck in a tree, and Percy took it out.  Then he stabbed the demon thing in the chest.  My favorite character is Grover because he is heroic for the way he protected Percy throughout the whole book and wouldn't leave his side.

I recommend this book for people who like action.  They would like it because there's lots of action parts in the book, and it will excite the reader because they never know what happens next.

4 out of 5 chocolate bars
Appropriateness:  Some violence, but not too bad.
Cover Thoughts:  I thought that the cover of the book was very detailed and was well illustrated.
