Searched back for a few pages and didn't find a thread on any of the books in the series, so I thought I'd start one. Maybe this could be the official one?
Anybody else here a fan of the original Percy Jackson series? Whereas I usually read a book before seeing the film adaptation, exactly one year ago I took a date to see The Lightning Thief and was pretty impressed with the movie. However, I didn't start reading the books until this past fall. I got through the first five (the whole first series) in 2 months time (hey, college work cuts into reading time *shrug*) and received The Lost Hero as a Christmas gift after my mom saw me return from school with all of the books. I hadn't even known that there was a sequel series being started. I figured it'd be a slightly less interesting novel, but I read it anyways and I'm glad I did. Didn't start until about two weeks ago and I just finished about 20 or so minutes ago. I am extremely impressed with the way things are setting up for the series with the contrast between Greek and Roman mythology (both of which I actually studied in middle and high school), and by the time the book had reached its climax, I'd already realized the whereabouts of Percy (won't say for those of you who maybe haven't read yet) and was glad to see I was right with the last line of the book.
tldr; I absolutely loved PJ&O and I think The Heroes of Olympus has potential to be even greater. Its increased the main cast with strong characters, and you know there are going to be more due to the whole "7 demigods of the age" thing (actually, I'm getting a Naruto vibe just from the way the number of characters seems likely to grow and diversify XD). Anyone else here love these books?
