In the beginning of the book Percy was not outgoing and didn’t know who his father was. Now as i approach the middle of the book Percy has changed a lot. For example he now knows his dad is Poseidon and his attitude changes from being this kid who is kinda cowardly and not to intelligent to being able to kill monsters and learn to read and speak greek.
One thing I like about “The Lightning Thief” is that it uses words in a way that makes you feel like your there in the book watching it all happen. And something i don’t like about the book is that it tends to ramble on and on and on, and it can get REALLY boring! The book is also hard to read because of this we’re going from one long detail to another long detail with a blink of an eye. Or it will go from one long detail to a short detail about a completely different subject. Over all its a good book, it has its flaws like any book would. I definitely recommend this book to all readers that need an interesting book to pass the time.
The way author explains how Percy’s mom “dies” is poetic and beautiful. Tt brings about an image in your head that’s hard to think of right off the bat. He explains it in such detail “Then with an angry roar, the monster closed his fists around my mother’s neck, and she dissolved before my eyes, melting into the light, a shimmering golden form, as if she were a holographic projection. A blinding flash, and she was simply… gone.” this is a beautiful representation of what’s happening.
