This book was one that I picked up because i just needed something to occupy some time, and I found out I had just picked up one of my favorite books of all time. I love all of the action and humor in the books, and that you get attached to the characters. I have read it twice now, and loved it even more the second time. The book is amazing to those who don't know a thing about Greek Mythology, and especially those who do.
