Percy Jackson and The Olympians [The Lightning Thief] is an outstanding book.

Percy Jackson and The Olympians [The Lightning Thief] is a book worth reading. What this book is about is a kid named Percy Jackson. He finds out that he is a descendant of a Greek god named Poseidon later on in the book. He gets in danger and goes to a place named Camp Half-blood. Once he is there he gets a quest to retrieve a lightning bolt for Zeus. He needs to get it to prevent an all-out war between Zeus and Poseidon.


This book is worth reading because it has good detail, action, and a good story. In one point of the story Percy fights Ares, the god of war, and actually beats him. He also fought his daughter, Clarisse. He actually beat the god of war, Ares, and his daughter Clarisse. Rick Riordan uses good detail to describe how Percy beat them both. 


The author, Rick Riordan, describes the characters and the gods as well in really descriptive detail. He gave really good descriptive detail when he fought Ares. Rick Riordan gave details on how Ares looked and how he also looked when he was under the control of Kronus. Rick Riordan also gave descriptive details when it came to describing Annabeth Chase. 


The story is also good. It’s not too fast and not too slow. The book is at a good pace. It lets you know the characters and then it continues on with the story. It doesn’t get to the point of the story too quickly like some other books do. Rick Riordan slowly starts building up to the main area of the story so when it gets to that part it is interesting.


I would rate this book a 5/5 stars because this book was outstanding. This book was outstanding because there was very good and descriptive detail, a good plot, and good pace to the story. This book has to be one of my favorite books because it has to have really good quality’s to it.
