I'm not sure why it has taken me so long to read this book, because I thoroughly enjoyed it. Percy is a loveable hero who suffers from ADHD, as well as dyslexia.

I am so glad I finally picked up this book as Riordan has woven a page-turning, modern, action-packed adventure effortlessly with Greek mythology to create a delightful read for all ages....Continua
Un libro pieno di emozioni, lo consiglio non solo a chi è appassionato ai fantasy, ma anche alle altre persone
