Until the Minotaur chases him to summer camp.
Suddenly, mythical creatures seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. The gods of Mount Olympus, he's coming to realize, are very much alive in the 21st-century. And worse, he's angered a few of them: Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.
Now Percy has just 10 days to find and return Zeus's stolen property, and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. On a daring road trip from their summer camp in New York to the gates of the Underworld in Los Angeles, Percy and his friends, one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena, will face a host of enemies determined to stop them. To succeed in his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of failure and betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.
Don't miss the other titles in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series.

I enjoyed listening to the book so I could keep up with my boys & discuss it later with them. I would have never been able to do so without it. I enjoyed the reader's expression as well. It was very entertaining.
My kids loved it and listened before and after school during the week to finish it! I loved the way they got into the story! Now they are learning about mythology because they want to!
I enjoyed the story and find the services and incredible convenience. I will be suggesting this to others.
This was the first book I've listened to while using this service, and I am certainly without regrets
Yes and no.. it is a good book I would only listen to go back and see if I missed anything important.
When they were telling parts of people's past like Luke and anabeth and grover, as well as the history between the gods..
No it was a good book but not one that really kept me wanted to hear it all at once.
The story is fairly predictable, but it's engaging and the narrator does a good job conveying Percy's voice. I would suggest this book series to others and I'm looking forward to reading the second book.
The characters are enjoyable and the story is interesting. All in all, this is a fun listen for the whole family.
