Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief audiobook
“You shall go west, and face the god who has turned,
You shall find what was stolen, and see it safely returned,
You shall be betrayed by one who calls you a friend,
And you shall fail to save what matters most, in the end.”
Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief audiobook follows the main character, Percy Jackson, as he discovers an universe far larger than he ever imagined, but is then thrust into a mission to atone for a crime he never committed. Percy Jackson is a kind child, but he can’t seem to concentrate on his studies or manage his temper. And being away at boarding school has recently become worse – Percy swears his pre-algebra instructor transformed into a monster and tried to kill him.
When Percy’s mother discovers the truth about his origins, she realizes it’s time for him to travel to the one place where he’ll be secure. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a demigod summer camp, where he discovers that his father is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon after, a mystery develops, and Percy embarks on a quest across the United States with two friends—one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena—to reach the gates of the Underworld and avoid a terrible battle between the gods.
Percy is such a compassionate character. He can give up quickly. He’s a bit of a wuss, but discovering that you’re a half-blooded demigod is a huge issue. He doesn’t want to do anything significant. He’s not exactly heroic, and he’s occasionally very foolish. He only acts heroically when he has no other alternatives. Now Percy is screwed yet again, and he has no choice but to embark on this massively dumb expedition into the underworld to clear his name. But he’s not alone; he’s accompanied by the sarcastic, attractive, fiercely capable Annabeth and the most inept satyr ever.
When it comes to revising and reinterpreting the Greek pantheon, Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief audiobook is just wonderful in every aspect. It’s hilariously, awesomely irreverent, but completely appropriate. The gods are redesigned, but they remain loyal to their genuine character, and the tales are recounted in a sarcastic, flippant style that had me chuckling. This book is hilariously snide about the Greek gods. Everything is described really effectively to a lay audience.
Every insecure youngster which is pretty much every kid should try Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief audiobook. You may like my hypothetical future children to try this book. Discovering that what people labeled as “strange” or unpleasant about you is actually caused by your secret magnificence is the ideal childhood fantasy. It’s a pretty excellent message.
