The Lightning Thief

Wanted to do this earlier.

A while ago my fren introduced me to this book (or more like i saw him having it and took it from him XD) Looking back i think this book also sealed out friendship among with other stuff like ping pong and RO -_- But bout the book. After reading the first, i was so captured that i wanted the second, the third and so on. This book i'm talking bout is Percy Jackson and The Olympians.

Might write a review on it later, but this book by far betters much more popular books nowadays like Harry Botter and TwiTlight or even Artemis Fowl. SOOOOO on the 12th, the movie for the first book will be released. The movie will prolly butcher the book by the looks of the trailer and as it is directed by the dude who directed the first two Harry Botter movies. ie how they made Percy better looking (he had ache in the book) and more powerful than in the book. (Yes i can go on and on. I'm an avid fan XD) Guess thats the side effects of Hollywood.

If u dont like Greek mythology, then screw you! XD Bit bout the book. Percy Jackson finds out he's half god half human, or in the book, a demigod. (same as Hercules, Achilles, and Perseus, who he was named after) And being demigod has its pro and cons. Pros? Awesome powers, superhuman strength and reflexes and other stuff. Cons? Well, power struggle, war and betray pretty much sums it up. Also, i love how the author, Rick Riordan kept the stories short and action packed with tons of humour. And also how he liked up alot of greek mythology to current events and places, that its almost possible to believe the story is real. Anyways hope you'll catch the movie, but if possible, read the book first. Might be the best book to me so far.

btw, Chor Yeng was the guy who introduced the book to me and the first book is called, Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.

Whoa I just read it and the book is awesome! The Lighting Thief was such a thriller ... kept the suspense with all the weaving of Greek mythology that nobody could catch the thief and he continued stealing all those vintage lamps from the lighting shop ... beats The LightNing Thief hands down!
