Opening Lines: Look, I didn’t want to be a half-blood. If you’re reading this because you think you might be one, my advice is: close this book right now. Believe whatever lie your mom or dad told you about your birth, and try to lead a normal life.
Memorable Quote: I gave her my deluxe I’ll-Kill-You-Later stare.
When I first picked up this book, I wasn’t expecting much. It said that it was mainly for kids younger than I am. But when I actually started reading, I was pleasantly surprised. Percy and his friends are so funny, and I love how all of the Greek mythology ties into the story line. If you’ve seen the movie, the book is nothing like it. I liked the movie, but the book is so much better because it had more detail.
I give this book 5/5 stars. It’s a quick read, but it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time!
^^This is from my old blog. I decided to post it because I have reviews for books 3, 4, and 5, so why not the first two? Book 2 review is coming up soon, I promise.
