Absolutely loved this book. Five out of five stars.
Rick Riordan writes in a style that is easy for me to read and enjoy. While reading the book I only remembered a couple of times that I was also an author. This is huge! I found the dialogue believable and spellbinding. I found the characters interesting, funny, and I rooted for them all along. The story line was enjoyable, and there were several times when I felt like shouting "Hurray!" for something Percy did or said. It definitely delivered on its promise.
And I just learned it is being made into a movie! Yay!
Note: it isn't necessary to have an in depth knowledge of Greek gods or history to enjoy the book.
