However, in those situations, my thoughts always stray to The Lightning Thief.
Even though I am slightly past the age for reading a book of this level, I still recall the story with nostalgic fondness. The Lightning Thief is almost perfect in every aspect. Personally, I find it hard to discover flaws in this masterpiece. From the plot to the character developments to the conflicts, everything is set up cleanly enough so that there are no holes, but not so much that everything is laid out before you.
The reader still has to interpret, infer, and piece together meanings themselves. There is a shocking yet sensible plot twist that makes the story all the more exciting. Riordan writes in an extremely humorous way that is suitable for all ages although more suitable to younger audiences. But this is a story that never gets old.
Take a chance and enter this fantastic world that will tug at your heart strings, tickle your funny bone, and bring you on a mythical roller coaster. However, this experience quickly turns into one of freedom as Pattyn comes to experience love and acceptance for the first time. Through this novel I gained an appreciation for verse novels, as each and every page became an individual work of art in my eyes. However, the downfall to such formal writing came with the fact that I never felt I could relate to any of the characters.
This problem became even more evident with the supporting character. Both were seemingly flawless and neither of them had any sort of building relationship with Pattyn, as both relationships were established as perfect right from the get go. I felt as if I was expected to love these characters simply because they were the only ones who loved Pattyn.
What I did enjoy about this novel is its approach to handling religion. And would you like to know why this only lasts for a while? Because everything goes downhill in the last few pages.
