Mini-Review! - Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief
Title: Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief (also published as just 'The Lightning Thief.')
Author: Rick Riordan
Genre: Kids, Fantasy, Mythology
Series: Percy Jackson (aka Percy Jackson and the Olympians) #1
I really enjoyed this - though perhaps not to epic fangirling levels, like most people seem to.
It was fun though, as well as interesting and entertaining. I loved the random chapter titles.
The ebook I borrowed from the library was clearly aimed at a British market because it took Americanisms like 'mom' and 'chips' and anglicised them to things like 'mum' and 'crisps.' Unfortunately, this came across as just strange - particularly as it wasn't consistent throughout.
I really did enjoy it though - and will probably read more of the series in future.
