The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I had seen the movie before I read the book. The movie was a disappointment, but I'm glad to report that the book was far better.
This is definitely a "Young Adult" book, written at the middle school level, but this old man really enjoyed it. I particularly admire the way Rick Riordan wove in Greek mythology with modern technology. Having Ares as a motorcycle punk was particularly inspired in my humble opinion.
I have some students who have read and enjoyed this book. I am thinking of starting a book discussion group around this book and the other books in the series.
