Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 1: The Lightning Thief (Rick Riordan)

Lightning Thief

 

J’adore ce livre! Riordan is still at the top of my authors-to-meet list, especially since I was out of town when he was actually IN town. I can’t say enough about the fabulous friendship among Percy, Grover, and Annabeth … May you all be as blessed as these three are! And hey, this was great preparation for those of you who will end up studying mythologies in the next couple of years, but be forewarned … Riordan has taken some liberties in modernizing the Greek pantheon!

What is it about this book that I love so much? I just enjoy being immersed in a world that has one foot firmly planted in Greek mythology and the other squarely set in the modern era. So much of who we are now comes from who we were back then—our writing, our government systems, our Olympics, our olives, and, of course, our stories—that it’s neat to be in that society again, if only for a little while. Of course, Percy and his pals don’t necessarily traipse around Camp Half-Blood in togas with laurel wreaths on their heads all day (Or do they? No spoilers here!). But a storyline full of Greek gods and goddesses is my cup of tea, and I hope yours, too.

Merci d’avoir prendre ce parcours avec moi! Now I can’t wait for the rest of the movies to catch up!
