Re: Percy Jackson?

I agree. I didn't start reading them until the fourth book was out, and I read the four books in 3 days. Plus I'm glad I didn't read them earlier, because the suspense of waiting for next volumes would have killed me.

 

If you're already thinking about it, you should just go for it!

Re: Percy Jackson?

It's THE best book I have read since Harry Potter.  (That's coming from a Harry Potter freak/avid reader.)

Even though I havent read the series the reviews I have heard are pretty good some say its the next harry potter some say its not but everyone seems to be talking about them so read them and tell us what you thought.

Re: Percy Jackson?

I just bought the book yesterday. I too have been debating on reading The Lightning Thief. What's the worst that can happen anyway? If we don't like a book just pass it around to friends (maybe one of them will like it) or keep it for the bookshelf.

Reading can only make you more happy and smarter. :smileyhappy:
