I've included 2 books on this review. They are the first 2 books in the series Percy Jackson & The Olympians.
It is interesting to note that there is a movie coming out soon by this same title. It was interesting to discover that Mr. Riordan lives here in Texas also.
This is another series involving the Greek myths. Unlike the book I just read recently on the same subject you don't have to have as deep a knowledge of the myths in this series. Maybe it's just the fact that the story starts out with a bang on the first page and is exciting to the last page. Mr. Riordan has a fresh style of telling an adventure story that leads you from page to page and leaves you wanting more. So, be prepared if the movie makers do as good a job on the movie you will probably be wanting a sequel.
I have every intention of reading the rest of the series. As I can acquire each book in order they will go to top of my TBR Pile.
