Synopsis

Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his 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 to succeed on his quest Percy will have to do more 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 more powerful than the gods themselves. With cover art from the major motion picture this first installment of Rick Riordan's best-selling series is a non-stop thrill-ride and a classic of mythic proportions.

Great book
June 21st, 2015
I thought that the lightming theif was a great book. The author of the book Rick Riordan did a great job making a word image in your mind. I think that Rick Riordan put a lot of thought into this book and it shows in a good way. I enjoy the plot in the story since most authors noway adays cant create a plot overall I think that it is a great book.

This book for me was fantasy and young adult at its finest. It was so real. And so funny! Almost everything was believeable...the pacing was fantastic, I couldn't put it down. I read it on my laptop, and I didn't mind lugging said laptop around for that period. 12 year old Percy is one hell of a character. Well done, Mr Riordan.
