The Lightning Thief

The Lightning Thief
Rick Riordan
Mark Twain Award Nominee 2007/08

Percy Jackson is a demigod. He has a normal, mortal mother, but his dad is Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea. He goes to Camp Half-Blood, the only safe place in the world for a Demigod. Soon, Percy finds out that a war between the Gods will happen, and be blamed on him. With the help of his friends Annabeth, daughter of Athena, and the satyr Grover, Percy must journey to the Underworld to find the cause of the war, Zeus' master bolt...

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.

What god would you want to be a child of? Why?

Would you want to be an all year camper or a summer camper? Why?

What is your favorite Greek Myth?

Please give me your comments and answers to this post.
