Someone stole Zeus’ Master Bolt and it’s up to Percy Jackson to return it.
Having watched the movie a couple times, I was interested in reading the original book that it was based on. Overall, I quite enjoyed the book and finished it in a couple of evenings. The book is fairly close to the movie for the first half, but then diverges into a much more complex story once Percy has reached Camp Half-Blood.
I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the series and seeing how Percy and his companions continue to save the world.
