Review: The Lightning Thief

The Lightning Thief
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a very good middle-grade book. My family’s pretty deeply rooted in the Classics, so I can see why my younger brother — who virtually almost never reads — became so enthralled with this series as a child.

However, it’s not just not to my tastes — and I don’t think it’s meant to be. I firmly believe I am not the audience for this book, and that’s okay. I’m happy that my younger brother had a series that he could anticipate the way I used to anticipate the next Harry Potter book; and I’m glad it also spurred along in him a period of interest in Greek mythology.

As for me: not my thing, but I’m glad I can at least say I did read it.
