i've read it but it just sounded to me like another wet harry potter story not sure if i like it tbh and well it just seems flat plus the movie looks awful. but if u are HUGE harry potter fan then yeah its ok as far it goes
Hm, I didn't think it was anything like HP... but I am a very huge HP fan. Yeah the movie wasn't that good and the books are way better (like usual), but I really like the books.
I love the Greek mythology aspect of it. I'm sure I could pick a number of things to complain about, but on the whole it's pretty good. I think Riordan has a great writing style; the book isn't too smart (as in you can tell the main character is young) but the humor is very smart. My younger cousins (who got me started reading the series) told me today that they aren't making a second movie because of the way they did the first one (which is sad and maddening) - They didn't leave any room for a sequel! Anyway, I just bought the two last books and will read them at work in the next couple days. YAY!
