Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek God. I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. That's when things started really going wrong. Now I spend my time fighting with swords, battling monsters with my friends, and generally trying to stay alive.
This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea.
Can Percy find the lightning bolt before a fully-fledged war of the Gods erupts?

Selected this book based on the trailers of the up and coming movie. I was not disappointed. the book is fast paced adventure that does not bore you. It is filled with light-hearted humor. And the characters are likable and easy to relate to. Percy is a down-to- Earth typical teenager with the kinds of problems that most of us can understand, and then a few more. Loved the book so much i have moved into the rest of the series with wild abandon. The best so far since Harry Potter or Artemis Fowl
Very entertaining and a great action book... I definately have learnt more about Greek Mythology and am committed to listen to the entire series, if it keeps up the pace...
This is a funny and witty book. The only fault is that all of a sudden it is over. There is no real finish, I checked out the audible manager looking for the final part?
Great writing (but that I already knew) and Jesse Bernstein is just awesome!
Buy this audiobook if you like fantasy and you wanna have a lot of fun. Witty dialogues and teen spirit, what else can you ask for?
My little ADD/ASD girl is completely wrapped in this story and keeps pinching my ipod to play it. I think the narrator isn't as good as the narrator of the 39 clues but enjoyable all the same.
