Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

Written by Rick Riordan

Part of the Percy Jackson Series

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief Synopsis

Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek god. I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. That's when things started really going wrong. Now I spend my time fighting with swords, battling monsters with my friends and generally trying to stay alive. This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea . . . Now a major film! This is an abridged edition, read by Walter Lewis. Running time: 3 hours.

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief Press Reviews

The Chris Columbus directed movie, based on the book, is due out on Feb 12, but this is a fabulous entertainment in its own right. -- Kati Nicholl * Daily Express *
