PERCY JACKSON THE LIGHTNING THEIF
By RICK RIORDAN
Percy Jackson the lightning thief is a fictional story about ancient Greek mythology and adventure! The main character of the story is Percy Jackson son of Poseidon, the “sea god” which makes him a demigod or half-blood if you want to call it that. Another important character is Grover. Grover is Percy Jacksons best friend, and his protector, he is a satyr. A satyr is a half man half goat. Last Important character is Annabeth, daughter of Athena; which makes her a master of war combat. My favorite part of the story is when a Minotaur kills Percy’s mom and Percy Jackson kills the Minotaur. It is crazy because he kills the creature with one of its own horns! A Minotaur is a big bull type of creature, sent from Hades. Hades is the ruler of the underworld or “Hades” as they call it. Percy Jackson goes on this amazing journey with his friends Grover and Annabeth to save his mother from Hades and prove that he is not the lightning thief. The lightning thief is actually Luke, another demigod from camp half-blood. Luke is the son of Hermes, the messenger for the gods. Apparently Luke wanted to start a war among the Gods. This story is filled with great adventure, mystery, and excitement! All through out the story it kept me on my toes. I saw the movie and read the book and I noticed that there were a lot of differences, but for the most part the plot stayed the same. On my movie poster it shows a part in the story, which I like, dislike, and was confused about. What I liked about it is when Percy killed the Minotaur. The part I disliked is when I thought his mom Sally died. This part also confused me because I did not know she was still alive.
