I love this series!! Before I read them, Harry Potter was at the top of the list of my fav books. Now, it's #2, and #1 is Percy Jackson and the Olympians! It's got a modern spin on old legend and myths, not to mention humor. I LOVE humor. And sarcasm. That's good too. I'll admit, I'm sad to see it end, but I'm sure I'll read the books enough times to nearly memorize them. The first thing that caught my attention about these books were the chapter titles. I love how they make absolutely no sense until you actually read the book. I showed my friends and they're all, "What the HECK?" I did that at first too. Percy Jackson, if it was you against Harry Potter, even with his magic you would win in a battle. I'm sure Riptide could DEFINITELY help with that (Not to mention maybe some water, but that's ok if there's none, 'cause you're awesome). I've caught up on my reading lately, and now I need to read the rest once more before Tuesday! I can't wait for The Last Olympian!! :)

You don't know a good book until you read The Last Olympian! Percy and his fiends fight to rid the world of Kronos and his cohorts in this epic tale of modern times and Greek mythology. It's a must read!

These books are some of the most imaginative I have ever read. I really like how you get to know the characters, and how they each arrive at Camp Half-Blood with their own personal problems. Rick Riordan writes the stories so well that it feels like your there right alongside Percy. I have not complained once about there being something that I didn't like in any of the books. They are so funny and random at times that I can't stop laughing. I have gotten friends into the series and their glad that I did. Now im just sad that it's going to end. And I guess that IS the only complaint I have. But I can't wait!

My daughter loved this book. I had her write the review.... She wrote, "The last Olympian is the last book of the lightning thief series. In the book Percy Jackson and his friends are on one quest to defeat Kronos from destroying the world. Rick Riordan is the best author ever, because this book will get your kids to want to learn and love Greek mythology. I think k you should read this book because of the adventure, tragedy and little romance. If you read this then you will not be bored". Taiya

This book was absolutely amazing! Not only did the author make this book very humerous and interesting, but it was also educational! There were many places in the book where the he referred to actual greek myths. I have read the whole series two times and will probably read it again soon! I would deffinately recommend this book to anyone who finds greek myths fascinating or even if you know nothing about them! This book is just an all around good book!!! :)

my eyes are aching to read this book! i can't wait till percy and annabeth get together. i can't wait to read that prophecy of percy, i think the prophecy has a little to do with the romance between annabeth and percy, and also, of course, the fate of the world. i also know i'm definatley going to cry once this beautiful series is ended. well at least i might feel better by the fact that these books are becoming movies. you guys should also check out a website called blue trident 'fan site'. can't wait, can't wait.

This is the last instalment in the series everyone loves "Percy jackson an the olympians". The end is here. There must be a war and we will finally see what the prophosy is all about!! After all these years since percy diccovered he was a demigod, after all the problems and battles and risking his life what will happen to him? Does he love Annabeth or Rachel Elizabeth Dare? What will happen to the gods and to olympus? there is only one way to find out!!

I love these books, they are AMAZING. Ever sice the first grade, I have always loved to read books. My favorite books to read have always been fantasy books! During the summer I went and purchased a copy of The Lightning Thief. I started to read it and I couldn't stop!!! I was just so interested!!! After I read the first book, I went and purchased the rest of the series 1-4. I cant stop reading them! They are so interesting and I learn so much about Greek Mythology from These books I even checked out a book on Greek Mythology at the library. The books are about a young boy named Percy Jackson who is the son of Posiedon the see god and also one of the big three gods of Olympas. Him and his frinds Grover and Annabeth (also half bloods) face many challenges against the Titan lord Kronos. They face danger, betrayal, obstacales and many more includeing the profecy of The Titans curse! I Highly recomend these books for anyone who likes to read and also for people who dont!

I cannot wait for this book to come out. So excited, I've read all the books out so far so many times! This book will be so exciting. I'm thrilled!I always hated reading, but then my best friend was getting The Sea of Monsters from the library so i decided to join him, not thinking about reading it. Suddenly, I find myself reading because my teacher tells me to, so i just skim, and even that grabs my attention. I start reading the series. First book 2, then 3, then 1, then 4. Later i decided to read it over and over again in order, and I'm still not tired. These books are worth more to me than a regular video game, because there are plenty of those. I don't know how much I would know about Greek mythology without them. They once even helped me on a presentation about Poseidon at school. I can't wait to see What's next. Thanks Rick Riordan.

"The Last Olympian," by Rick Riordan is the fifth and final installment in the New York Times #1 best-selling "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" series. Packed with a large plethora of surprising twists and turns, this book is suspenseful, humorous, and, of course, completely action-packed! Revealing many shocking truths, this novel is a fantastic finale to a hugely compelling series!

Before I started reading this series I hated reading.But now I love reading because I started reading the percy jackoson series (pj). First I liked to read the greek myths, then one day my mom recommended the lighting thief. So I read it and I loved it.I wanted to read the rest of the books in the series. Then I read the sea of monsters. I enjoyed it, but not as much as the lighting thief. After that I read the titans curse, and the strangest thing happened.When I opened the cover it was signed by the author,( I had the biggest happy attack of my life!)I think it was the funniest out of the series. After that I read the battle of the labyrinth. Great book that and the lighting thief are my favorites. Now Im almost done with the demigod files, and after that I will have to wait until the last olympian comes out. Im also recommending it to all my freinds. GO PERCY JACKSON!

I know none of us have read this lasst installment to thre brilliant, humourous, and dramatic Percy Jackson Series, but if you have read the preceeding four books, you will know that this book is sure to be a winner. Try reading this instead of the Over-rated Twilight series. (Yes, i used to be a big fan of stephanie meyers, but please try to look at the books from a neuteral angle.) These books are a blend of everything, so please read and enjoy (I know i will!)

I've read the series about 1,000 time. I think they are the best books ever. I've learned alot of mytholagy since I read these books.

CullenBoy must not have even read the series yet he feels the need to blast it! Really and Twilight is really that much better? Anywho this is a great book to read out loud to your kids, I read them with my sister and her kids and loved them. I own the set so that when mine is old enough to read or listen to such an involved story it will be perfect. Great for boys who need to brush up on their reading skills as it will keep them entertained!

The Books are AWSOME!!!!!Ever since I started Fifth grade, I had to read books. And to me that was something not so interesting. But when I read one part of the Lighting Thief, I wanted to read more of it!!! It seams like youre realy there, like Percy does exsist. To me youre books are even better than Harry Potter's. In the "Percy And the Olympians" books there is more adventere, thrilling, challenging things that happen. It's almost like the story POP's out the book. What I mean is... I LOVE IT!!!!! I JUST LOVE IT!!!!! Youre writing is full of greek myth experiences. But the thing I just wish is that this thrilling story would NEVER end.That's the sad thing. It's just so GOOD!!!! And, can't wait for the fifth book. And also if Annabeth and Percy ever get together, if it happens.

So Ive read every single percy jackson and heroes of olympus by rick riordan possibly out there. If anyone is confused i truly suggest you red the demigod files(percy jackson) and the demigod diaries(heroes of olympus). You have no idea how helpful they are from maps to pictures of characters to background stories mentiond in the book in one sentence such as "we got in a tangle with the maenads last summer..." but has no flashback or details about the encounter in the book. Hope this helped

Rachel and percy kiss at the beach. Annabeth and percy kiss in a volcano and in a lake. I think that im on team annabeth. That is because percy and she begin dating anyway, and because in mark of athena percy and annabeth sleep together. Great book!! Say which team u r on.
