Percy Jackson and the Olympians!


The fourth book in the series is now out! I have two copies of The Battle of the Labyrinth in my office in the library, but of course there isn't any checkout right now. Bloggers may come in and read it in here during their off time... if you're interested!
This forum to discuss the series was requested by Kira. Take it away, Kira!

Percy Jackson and the Olympians is about Percy Jackson (obviously), probably the most normal preteen boy you could imagine. He doesn't get great grades, and he's always getting into trouble due to the strange occurences that seem to follow him wherever he goes. He loves his mom, but never knew his real father. Then one day, while on a school field trip, he's attacked by something monstrous. He survives, largely due to the help of one of his teachers, and one of his friends. Things only get stranger from there. We later find out that he is a son of Posiedon, the greek god of the ocean. And, you know those myths and legends you've heard about? Nymphs and gods and goddesses? Yeah, they're real. And some of them seem pretty mad at Percy.

I'm not going to say any more, because I don't want to ruin any of the fun. Besides, there are probably tons of better reviews and summaries out there. I suggest doing a search on Amazon.com.

i agree with kira, the books are great to read, and, i thought that was a pretty good summery! :) it's a really good series, and (unsurprisingly) my favorite one is the first one. i haven't read the 4th one yet, but i plan to.

ciao!

okay, so i'm currently reading this book, after looking for a nonused bookstore across the western side of our beautiful colorado. *siriously, i had to wait untill Silverton to find a Borders, we even couldn't find a bookstore in Glenwood Springs!!! so here i am, writing in the blog and feeling woozy after a 12 hr. car drive with no book and writing on the web.* for those of you who haven't read the book, i highly suggest that you read it and blog, otherwise it will be a very blogless summer for me.

ciao!
