Book Review: The Lightning Thief
Even though ‘The Lightening Thief’ is meant to be a Children’s book (or, young adult), I don’t see why adults can’t enjoy it. This book (and the series) is a complete package, full of entertainment, humor, good story, good characters, good pace and good writing style.
