Quest, monsters, half Gods, and sword fighting
The Percy Jackson books
Greek Gods and Goddesses, people sword fighting, Greek monsters, a camp full of half gods and half mortals, and a boy named Perseus Jackson, also known as Percy Jackson.
Percy Jackson is a twelve year old boy with ADHD and dyslexia. He is about to be kicked out of another boarding school; only this time, he gets thrown into a world of Greek Gods and monsters with people and Gods trying to kill him. Now his new friends and himself must go on a quest to retrieve Zeus's lightning bolt in just 10 days, or there will be a war of the gods.
On top of that, Percy’s mom was taken by Hades, the god of the underworld, so now Percy not only has to deal angry gods and monsters after him; but a missing mother, a father he has never known, a orical that warns him he will be betrayed by a friend, and one quest that can end the world all on his shoulders. He does not have to do this alone; he has his friends, but will he be betrayed by one of them?
“Packed with humorous allusions to Greek mythology along with rip-snorting action sequences, [this] book really shines,” said by The Horn Book.
Percy Jackson, Annabeth Chase, and Grover Underwood, three people that can save the world from a war of the Gods or let it happen. A lightning bolt that belonged to Zeus, now stolen by someone.
“An adventure quest with a hip edge,” said The Lightning Thief Analysis.
A book of wonder and unexplainable powers with a camp filled with half Gods run by Chiron, a centaur. Dionysus, who is the God wine filled with campers that most likely live long lives, and will die in painful nasty ways.
I think this book is wonderful, and I like that it shows that even if you do have a disability; you can do great things. I also love the adventure in the book, I feel like it goes along with the theme of the story. I love the funny quotes that were in the book. In all the books, this is the one that started it all. It made me fall in love with reading, and even writing. It made me fall in love with the characters, and I can not wait for the other books to come out so I can read them to.
