Beschreibung

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief is the first bestselling book in Rick Riordan's phenomenally successful Percy Jackson series.

Half boy. Half God. ALL Hero.

Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek God.

I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. Now I spend my time battling monsters and generally trying to stay alive.

This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea.

My expectations were too high
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 26.12.2020

I have always cared more for Greek mythology than for sorcery, so I expected "Percy Jackson" to be more my type of book than "Harry Potter". Alas, turns out: no. There are two reasons. First of all, I like Harry Potter better as a character. Yes, he can be cocky and self-righteous at times but he is not exactly a good-for-noth... I have always cared more for Greek mythology than for sorcery, so I expected "Percy Jackson" to be more my type of book than "Harry Potter". Alas, turns out: no. There are two reasons. First of all, I like Harry Potter better as a character. Yes, he can be cocky and self-righteous at times but he is not exactly a good-for-nothing. Percy Jackson is redeemed to a degree later on, but at first he is not particularly likeable. Also I take issue with some of Rick Riordan's politics. Sure, probably J.K. Rowling is the more problematic person with her transphobic views and her self-congratulatory declaration that a main character of the Harry Potter franchise was gay - but she only revealed that after his death and also gave no foundation to that when she could have done so in a later work. Still, Riordan comes across as fairly patriotic and patriarchal here, with the US being the undisputed center of civilization and the big three deities being all-male - Athena and i beg to differ! My favorite part of the book is Hades, who is both enigmatic and somewhat underappreciated. I might come across the second volume at some point. But i won't hurry.

Percy Jackson ist ein eher typisches Kinder- und Jugendbuch in Bezug auf den immer wieder aufrecht erhaltenen Spannungsbogen, den Humor und den Schreibstil. Aber genau deswegen hat mir das Buch so gut gefallen. Es war wunderbar mich darin zu vertiefen und beim Lesen abzuschalten. Für jeden der nur mal nebenbei wieder was lesen möchte oder etwas nicht literarisch anspruchsvolles lesen möchte, kann ich Percy Jackson nur empfehlen.

The Beginning
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 23.06.2018

Percy is a normal student through and through, and it isn't his fault that he is a bad student, it's only that he's dyslexic and suffers from ADHD and studying is quite hard for him. And it's surely not his fault that nearly all the teachers hate him, especially his Math teacher, who LITTERALY transforms into a Fury and tries to... Percy is a normal student through and through, and it isn't his fault that he is a bad student, it's only that he's dyslexic and suffers from ADHD and studying is quite hard for him. And it's surely not his fault that nearly all the teachers hate him, especially his Math teacher, who LITTERALY transforms into a Fury and tries to kill him. But ever since that incident. Percy’s whole life was turned upside down. He found out that the Greek Gods really exist, but not only the Gods, the monsters from the old myths - Cyclopes, Furies, Manticores, etc. - are alive too! And because he is the son of a God - a Demigod -, all those monsters (and sometimes the Gods themselves) are trying to kill him. The only place he should be safe is "Camp Half Blood", a camp for Demigods and Friends. Okay first and foremost: the books are just great, I simply LOVE them. They're exciting, full of suspense, well written and full with Greek mythology, so that you even learn something while reading them.
