The Lightning Thief


We bought The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan for our 10-year-old great-nephew. He loved it and since has read all four of the other books in the series. And now my wife and I have borrowed them from him and are enthralled. A modern boy, really a demigod, has adventures with and without help from the Greek gods. What a great way for youth to learn Greek mythology!

We want to hear, did we miss an angle we should have covered? Should we come back to this topic? Or just give us a rating for this story. We want to hear from you.
