Book Reviews #3 With Sara: Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian, Review by Raghunandan, 14 years, Cochin
Hello young readers, your friend Sara here. I am so excited to see the fantastic response to my ‘book reviews by young readers’ activity section! Keep reading and keep telling me all about it!
Today 14 year old Raghunandan from Nava Nirman Public School , Cochin shares a well laid out book review.
Book: Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian
Author: Mr. Rick Riordan
When I saw the cover page I thought this book should be something about myths and legends.
I got this book because my Mom’s friend suggested it to me.
It is a book about Greek mythology, a fantasy story about the Greek gods and heroes. The central idea of the story is about the dangers faced by children of Greek gods.
The story describes how children of Greek gods reach a summer camp which is safe for them. This summer camp is called camp half-blood. The children of Greek gods are called half-bloods or demigods. They go to this camp to train themselves against Greek monsters which feed on demigods. Now their fathers, who are the gods of Olympus (Heaven for Greek gods) are in danger because of The Titan Lord Kronos.
The lead character of this story is Percy Jackson. He is a son of Poseidon (God of oceans). The most interesting part about him is that he is a great swordsman. Percy Jackson leads the camp and other demigods in it to defend Olympus.
My favorite part of the book is when Percy Jackson single handedly defeated the army of Lord Hades(God of the dead)
My learning from the book is that I should always have a plan like Lady Athena, Goddess of wisdom and battle.
If I could, I would change the part where Lord Zeus (God of gods) offers Percy Jackson a position of god, but Percy didn’t want it because he loved Annabeth(daughter of Athena) and didn’t want to leave her. Annabeth was the architect of Olympus. So instead of declining the offer Percy could have asked Lord Zeus to make Annabeth God of Architecture and Percy could have been Poseidon’s lieutenant and served him eternally and also could have married Annabeth.
The best age to start reading this epic series is 9 years.
It is really good book. It is written in simple language so that everybody can easily understand. I would give it 4.5 stars out of 5*
*On a scale of 1-5, 5 being the highest
