Percy Jacson and the Olympians series

by Rick Riordan

Percy Jackson is an AMAZING  action book, with not only a perfect amount of comedy, but some fun humored romance as well.

No, but Annabeth kisses Percy some. It is weird but pretty funny. I mean, come on, in the end of the series they're like, what, 17?

True. I have now finished all the books. My favorite is The Titan's Curse. (3) I like Thalia, (her name rocks as  well!!)

Anyone read The Lost Hero yet?

Probably. In Son of Neptune the only person Seaweed Brain can remember through amnesia is his girlfriend Annabeth and plus he was thinking about a future with her.

I love the Percy Jackson series! I went to one of the Air and Space museums in Washington D. C. last weekend, and it happened to be the one where they fought the Nemean lion.

Rick Riordan is AMAZING! He has a funny sense of humour. I read the Lost Hero and The REd Pyramid too. READ THEM! AND ALL THE PERCY JACKSON BOOKS! :D

I love this series! I've only read 1-3 so far but am getting #4 from the library. I hope Thalia comes back, though. She's too cool. I really liked #1, but somehow #2 was too much like the Odessey. Okay, maybe it was supposed to be like that, but it didn't seem original. Book three was cool because of the Hunters, but I wished Annabeth were there. I missed her.

Started reading The Last Olympian at the bookstore and am now right in the middle of a battle and cannot finish it quickly because my library has four other holds on that book before me and there is only one copy of it so I have to wait until the end of the month and have to wait in torture while I find out what's gonna happen!!!!!!!


(Note: I get hyper when I talk about things I like. Sorry.)

Me too. The books are stupid though. Why are you so excited.

I think there's way too big a fuss on this book. It is just like Harry Potter. Weak writing, poor characters, and such a stupid plot. Yup, Percy is the son of a big god, and I'm a published author. I think it is really stupid!
