Description

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.

Can Percy find the lightning bolt before a fully-fledged war of the Gods erupts?

Outstanding!!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Lightning Thief: Percy Jackson, Book 1 to be better than the print version?

Yes, I recall reading the print version in primary and I really did like it but never considered reading the other books. But when I listened to it I was hooked.

What did you like best about this story?

The action and adventure, the emotion. The precise use of greek mythology spun into it, all real myths.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was when Percy, Grover and Sally were fighting their way to camp half-blood. It was action-packed, and very emotional.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this book.

Terrible narrator

Good story, terrible narrator. I want to listen to the other books, but I cannot stand to make myself suffer through any more from this narrator, so I will not be buying the rest.

The perfect fantasy book

This is the best book I’ve ever heard


The story is dynamic and very interesting often the book comes somewhat of an ending but then Percy comes in to save the day!!!

great story for any greek fan

i read the book after watching the movie and have to say its day and night difference. Like listening to two different stories. the book is far more captivating and interesting than the movie could ever hope to be.

Its also my first audiobook ever and Jesse Bernstein does amazing job voicing all the different characters, switching between the voices flawlessly and hands down makes the story 100 times more engaging.

Cant wait to read the rest. Far better than reading it myself.

I love young Adult Non Fiction (31)

Very entertaining and a great action book... I definately have learnt more about Greek Mythology and am committed to listen to the entire series, if it keeps up the pace...

Great Book

This is a funny and witty book. The only fault is that all of a sudden it is over. There is no real finish, I checked out the audible manager looking for the final part?

One word: awesome

Great writing (but that I already knew) and Jesse Bernstein is just awesome!
Buy this audiobook if you like fantasy and you wanna have a lot of fun. Witty dialogues and teen spirit, what else can you ask for?

Good Fun

My little ADD/ASD girl is completely wrapped in this story and keeps pinching my ipod to play it. I think the narrator isn't as good as the narrator of the 39 clues but enjoyable all the same.

Simply fun

Okay I'm might be a bit biased as I like Greek mythology, but also in general the modern version of the Greek gods was a brilliant idea. I enjoyed the funny allusions to modern times a lot. The plot was captivating, with an unexpected surprise in the end. Percy himself comes off as quite funny and sympathetic; he's a character that everyone can easy relate to. All in all, this is a novel definitely worth your time as an adult and the narrator is doing a marvels job, too.

Witzig, aber vorhersehbar...

Zumindest einen Band langt trägt die Basisidee der griechischen Götter, die aktiv die moderne Welt beeinflussen, durchaus, trotzdem ist der erste Teil der Percy-Jackson-Reihe nicht überragend, sondern nur ganz nett. Riordan schreibt mit viel Witz und Ironie, und es gelingt ihm, die Hauptdarsteller mit glaubhafter Sprache auszurüsten. Ausserdem findet er in Jessie Bernstein einen kongenialen Partner, der das Buch zum Leben erwecken kann (ähnlich wie die Kombination Rowling-Fry bei den Potter-Audios). Und wenn man gerade einen Sechstklässler, der sich in der Schule mit griechischer Mythologie beschäftigt, zu Hause hat oder beschenken muss, so ist das Buch natürlich eine witzige Ergänzung trockener Schulstunden und kann durchaus weitergehendes Interesse an der griechischen Mythologie wecken.
Die Story allerdings ist in weiten Teilen vorhersehbar, wann immer Monster auftauchen könnten, da tauchen sie auf, Überraschungseffekte bleiben weitestgehend aus, auch wenn die einzelnen Episoden/Abenteuer häufig ganz witzig sind. Ich bezweifle allerdings, dass ich mir die weiteren Bände auch noch anhöre. Meinem Sohn (der oben erwähnte Sechstklässler) hat das Buch besser gefallen (cool!), und das war ja auch der eigentliche Sinn der Anschaffung. Aber das soll er dann, wenn er will, in seiner eigenen Rezension sagen...
