Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief is the first bestselling book in Rick Riordan's phenomenally successful Percy Jackson series - now with a new cover look.

Half boy. Half God. ALL Hero.

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. Now I spend my time battling monsters 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.


The Greek Gods are alive and kicking - go to and see for yourself

  • This book reminds me of my favourite teacher

    By Muslim nav
    In year 6 my teacher Mrs Walton read this book to us so that we could write a story based on Percy I really loved doing that

    By Bookworm Hazel
    I read the series and heroes of Olympus and the trials of apollo and the cane chronicles and the demigod diaries and the demigod files and demigods and Egyptians. Percy Jackson is my fave cos it is what started my love of Greek myths and a lot of other things. Anyone can read this it is AMAZING. Lots of humour, action and Greek myths, a must read. If u watched the movie and didn't read the book READ IT NOW ur missing ouT P.S. the second movie is a complete lie

    Firstly this an amazing book! I love the way it follows Greek mythology! However at first I did not think I would enjoy it, but I was very wrong I was intrigued from the very beginning up until the end! That's why I rated it 4 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Because I loved it but I suspected it to be bad. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes adventures or myths because it is a thrilling book with mythical twist!

    I found this book very interesting because of the fast paced story line and many cliff-hangers at the end if each chapter. Read this if you enjoy action packed books with some surprising twists and exciting meanings behind the plot. The characters all have their own thrilling story line. A lot of the book is different to the film but is jam-packed with excitement and interesting things that you might not have thought about in the film.

    Loved this! Would probs give this a 4.5 if I could. Only reason am not giving it a 5 is because I probs wouldn't read it again! But who knows! It was brill and I can't wait to read the next one
  • Awesome!

    By Alfievorn
    If you've seen the film, READ the book it's a 100000 times better I read the whole series prior to the films coming out and the first book rendered the film unwatchable, so much missing in the film, made a lot to childish in the film, huge chunks of amazing storyline missing in the film, read the book you can't put it down, and I guarantee you will have bought all of them by the end.
  • Good
