The gods of Olympus are alive in the 21st Century. They still fall in love with mortals and have children who might become great heroes, but most of these children meet horrible fates at the hands of monsters by the age of twelve. Only a few learn the truth of their identity and make it to Half Blood Hill, a Long Island summer camp dedicated to training young demigods. Such is the revelation that launches young Percy Jackson on a quest to help his real father, Poseidon, avert a war among the gods. With the help of Grover the satyr and Annabeth the daughter of Athena, Percy must journey across the United States to catch a thief who has stolen the original weapon of mass destruction - Zeus master bolt. Along the way, they face a host of mythological enemies determined to stop them. Most of all, Percy must come to terms with a father he has never known, and an Oracle that has warned him of betrayal by a friend.
It was quite confusing for me. I didn't have too much knowledge about Gods. I also took time longer than I expected. Bored. At the same time, I was really busy at campus. But I continued read it day by day. Slowly I found how I enjoy this book. Funny enough.
I passed many paragraphs, actually :P
My favorite part is when they stay at Las Vegas. I can't imagine that games made people forget anything. I am not such a gamers or something, so I didn't know well.
The thing that I love from this book is the ending. It was really awesome to put a clue about the next story there. I was so excited! But I don't think to read the second book.
Already wrote the review about it here
The book is the way better but I prefer the movie though it's seems silly :D
