We have been on a bit of a break here at Guys Read, but keep checking in, we will be getting lots of new stuff up in the next few days.
I know that I am about the last person on the planet to read this book, but I just finished The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan and can say without hesitation that it was one of my favorite books. I am whole-heartedly hooked on Percy Jackson and can’t wait to read books two (Sea of Monsters) Three (Titan’s Curse) and the newest Percy Jackson adventure (Battle of the Labyrinth which is due out in May).
My favorite element in this book was how Rick Riordan threaded the Ancient Greeks into modern life. I had the Medusa thing figured out before it was revealed and laughed out loud thinking about a garden shop full of stone figures created by Medusa.
If you like Rick Riordan you may want to visit his blog. It is updated all the time and has great news about Percy Jackson, the possibility of a movie and other Riordan projects.
So have you read The Lighting Thief or another Rick Riordan book? Did you enjoy the adventure? Leave us a comment below and share your thinking. We would love to hear from you.
