The Lightning Thief

By Rick Riordan (2)

Show/Hide Info

The tremendously popular and critically acclaimed The Lightning Thief, written by Rick Riordan, is the first novel in the series Percy Jackson & The Olympians. In Riordan’s tale, Greek myth and modern culture collide in a perfectly balanced concoction, yielding a rollicking adventure that will electrify readers. Twelve-year-old Percy Jackson is no angel; he has, in fact, been kicked out of several boarding schools, his troublemaking tendencies being a definite factor. When a school trip goes awry, Percy finds himself battling a harpy with deadly intentions, and he is left with multiple questions, causing him to wonder about his true identity. The boy later becomes acquainted with his mythological background, discovering that while he is the son of a mortal woman, he is also the son of Poseidon, the legendary sea god, which makes Percy a demigod. When the boy is accused of stealing Zeus’ famous thunderbolt, Percy and his friends, satyr Grover Underwood and Annabeth Chase, another demigod, set out on a journey to discover the thunderbolt’s whereabouts, an expedition with a tick-tocking ten-day deadline. Riordan’s adventure tale is, first and foremost, a variety of fun exploits, narrated with a sardonic wit that will keep readers laughing. However, The Lightning Thief also serves as a wonderful introduction to Greek mythology, and the underlying social commentary makes Riordan’s novel a worthwhile read for students ages 10 and up.
