I actually started reaidng it now...and I really like it so far...now THIS book deserves to be compared to Harry Potter since it does have many similarities...but its awesome nonetheless...these are the types of books 12 year olds need to read
 
 
BTW OMG You watch AI?? and WOW you support everyone I like!

(I'm only on the first book and only like on the 5th chapter) but so far I've gotten is that this 12 year old kid Percy Jackson who has dyslexia and ADHD is sort of a trouble maker (but really is at the wrong place at the wrong time) but then he's attacked by a monster and things unfold and he finds out that he's a demi-God (half boy half Greek God) and he goes to this camp called Camp Half-Blood where other demi Gods are there and he meets Greek mythological characters like Dionysis,Cherion and satyrs and such..
 
its really interesting though...I'd recommend it...but its a very easy read...it is made for kids

Yep, I read the series.  They are awesome.  I loved them almost as much as I loved Harry Potter (a shade less maybe).  HP will always be my first love, LOL.  Big smileBig smile
 
I'd definitely recommend reading them.  Big smile  Movie wasn't all that bad.  I liked it.  I prefer the books, though.  Big smile

To be honest i am not a series person and besides that mythology does not interest me, but my 9 year old son can not put them down. He read the series and is rereading them. My 10 yrs old niece also went through it quite fast. Both kids love it so much. My son also watched the movie and he said it was not like the book.
