Review Review by Niharika V Kudva, 11 yrs, Maharashtra, Winner of Flipkart Review Contest The Percy Jackson series of books would be liked by all preteens and teens. What's good about the book is that it's humorous and very understandable yet descriptive. It introduces the reader to the world where Greek gods are real. It is fun to read and very informative. The protagonist of these books, a boy called Percy Jackson, discovers that he is a 'demi-god'. That is, a human being born from a god and a mortal. The first five books have been written from the point-of-view of Percy. This first-person narration makes it easier to understand as the language is simple. The stories aren't predictable and that's what makes them interesting. The first book of the series- Percy Jackson and the lightning thief is a good introduction to the series. Many terms that are used often in the other books, are introduced to the reader in this book.  The book describes the enmity between the greatest Greek gods- Zeus, the god of air and the god of gods, Poseidon the god of water and Hades the god of death and the underworld. It shows how different these gods are from each other, though they are brothers. Percy Jackson, helped by his friend- Grover, reaches the only place safe for demi-gods, Camp Half-blood. That's when he discovers that Zeus, a god he didn't even know, really existed before he reached camp, is accusing him of stealing Zeus's mightiest weapon, the lightning bolt. The story continues with some amazing incidents where Percy finds himself doing all sorts of things from entering the underworld to battling Ares, the god of war. I felt this book was very interesting and educational though it was slightly violent. People who liked the '39 clues' series would like this. The author of the book- Rick Riordan knows the way think, very well. It was so realistic, I had to keep reminding myself that this book was fiction. I would seriously recommend this book. Rick Riordan has also written the 'Kane chronicle' series. Description    Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek god. I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. That's when things started really going wrong. Now I spend my time fighting with swords, battling monsters with my friends and generally trying to stay alive. This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea.
