I loved the Percy Jackson series!! I saw the movie first and couldn't get into the books at first but once I got through the first one I was hooked! It's very exciting and compels you to keep reading. When I finished the last one I was so sad (but I hat ending any series.)

Currently I am almost 17. I have read the first novel at least two times. When I fist started to read the series, I couldn't get into it. I believed that I was a horrible reader. My mother read them to me with my little sister who was about nine at the time. That means I was 13. I repeat I hated school, and was a horrible student, I started to believe that I couldn't read at all. After my mom read the series out loud to me and my sister, I couldn't help my self but read it again. Since then I have picked up multiple novels and teenage books. Surprisingly I now even enjoy the novels they make us read for school! I love Greek Mythology now. I even have my best friend who wouldn't dare under normal circumstances to pick them up. She couldn't stop reading it. I recommend this book to anyone. By the way, I was tested for dyslexia when I was in fourth grade, it turned out I was negative, but it also turned out that I had ADHD. Who knows maybe I am a demigod. (Just kidding). My mom thinks I think that. (Not kidding).

The book series starts out with Percy Jackson, a young man who lives with his mother and abusive stepfather (he has never known his father). While on a field trip, he is attacked by his teacher turned monsteresque creature. He defeats her, but soon finds himself being attacked by all types of 'mythological' creatures. In a desperate attempt to save him, his mother and best friend bring him to a camp called, Camp Half-Blood, where Percy learns that he is the son of the Greek god Poseidon. This series details the adventures of Percy, his friends, and his enemies, as they struggle with being a demi-god (half god, half human) in a world where monsters are all too real. This is a very entertaining series. It teaches the reader about Greek Mythology, but brings the characters into a modern perspective. The one complaint I have is that the Greek gods and goddesses tend to ignore their demi-god children except when it is convenient for them. The gods and goddesses brush it off by saying that they have "duties" but never explain what those are. They have been around for ages; they know what makes babies and yet they still have children with no intention of taking care of them. They use the same excuses all deadbeat parents use. I would like for them to step up and change a bit or for them to at least acknowledge that they are being irresponsible. After all, they're deities! Would it be too much to ask that they pay child support?

I bought this book series for my 10 year old son. He absolutely loved the movie and decided to read the series. Its a wonderful way to get your kiddos to read and learn to love to read. I might even read it myself. He is absolutely excited about reading just to see what happens. I recommend it to anyone who is struggling with reading.

THIS IS AN AMAZING BOOK SERIES. Unlike other books where the first book would be good but the rest are boring, this series is amazing the whole way through. NONE os the books were boring. They were all good and i just finished the last book and now I'm onto the lost hero.

I'm an 8th grader and I first read the Percy Jackson books 2 years ago in 6th grade. We read the first book and I fell in love with it. Before  that I hated to read, never wanted to do it. My parents tried to make me read Harry Potter a few years before (which is a series I now love) and I wouldn't do it. These books opened me up into the world of reading. I remember having to wait for House of Hades and Blood of  Olympus( which are part of the sequel series) and just wanting them to be out. Blood of Olympus is the final book involving the characters and their adventures and I remember crying once it was over. Just because these books that I had grown with had ended.

My 10-year-old cousin screamed with joy when he opened his Christmas gift! He just loves this series - had already read one but was eager to read the others. I am happy with the Barnes and Noble age-appropriate recommendations. Thank you.

All five books are really great! After my child started reading books from Rick Riordan, she developed an interest in mythology. The first time she read is books, she was in third grade. Now, three years later, she's waiting for The House of Hades to come out. The set is only the start of an endless story. Also, culture and mythology is put in the series, so kids learn too! Really get these if you haven't, and they'll be great for your kids!

I read this series because some of my students were and I loved every page of it! A must-read for Harry Potter fans. I bought the boxed set for my classroom and haven't seen them since because the kids are passing them around like hot potatoes. This is a fantastic series for kids and adults.
