Percy Jackson Book Review: The Lightning Thief

Trident, the sign of Poseidon

Hi guys!! I am Tanishka Gupta and I will be giving the review on all the books from the Percy Jackson series. There are five books in total:-

PERCY JACKSON AND THE LIGHTNING THIEF

PERCY JACKSON AND THE SEA OF MONSTERS

PERCY JACKSON AND THE TITAN’S CURSE

PERCY JACKSON AND THE BATTLE OF LABYRINTH

PERCY JACKSON AND THE LAST OLYMPIAN

Mind you, there are going to be a lot of half men and half… anything else like god, bull, goat, etc. some of them are monsters and some of them are friends….Ready? Okay! Lets start!!

PERCY JACKSON AND THE LIGHTNING THIEF

In this book, Percy Jackson finds out that he is a half-blood, which is half mortal and half god, he got to know that Greek gods still exist and his father is one of them. he also found out that his best friend, Grover Underwood is a satyr, half man and half goat, on his way to Camp Half-Blood (the only safe place where demigods can live), Percy lost his mother while fighting a Minotaur who is a half man and half bull monster. Along the book series, Percy’s life is not very easy because he is always in danger with monsters around him.

Percy makes some new friends like Annabeth Chase, daughter of Athena, goddess of wisdom and warfare. Trident, the sign of Poseidon

In the World War II, the Big Three, Zeus, Poseidon and Hades had made a solemn oath of not to have any demigod children. If they had a demigod child, then when that child would turn 16, he or she would have to face the Great Prophecy to save Olympus from the Titan Lord Kronos.  In the meantime, Zeus’s lightning bolt is stolen and he thinks that Percy has stolen it. Now Percy Jackson is the key to stop the World War III by summer solstice because making Zeus and Poseidon angry would be bad… The prophecy for this quest goes like this…..

You shall go west and face the god who has turned,

you shall find what was lost and have it safely returned,

you shall be betrayed by one who calls you a friend,

you shall fail to save what matters the most in the end.

In the first few chapters of the book, Percy knows who his father is. Poseidon, god of sea, horses and the earth shaker. Percy’s mom also survives…but where is she? If you have not read the book, I’m not giving anymore spoilers.
