If you like greek mythology and adventure books, you will likely love these, and I encourage you to take a chance and read the first one. You'll fall in love. By the end of the series, you'll be so attached to the characters, you'll want there to be more stories about them (check out Heroes of Olympus, because there are). It really doesn't matter what age you are, if you like adventure and greek mythology, you'll enjoy these books.
Five stars for the book series itself, and 2.5 stars for the paper back set. I'm extremely careful with my books, and the first book had the front cover get bent into a crease the first day of reading it. Being a perfectionist, I was not happy how easily these books get damaged. I can't imagine how bad they might bent up if a kid handled the book roughly. The artwork is pretty, the books should just be more durable.
The books are also so snuggly packed into the display box, that I worry I'll bend the pages or they'll be damaged trying to slide them back in. I highly recommend spending the extra money and getting the hardcover version instead.
Overall excellent, just get the hardcovers or buy more durable papercover of each book.
I regret not reading these books sooner. The story is really action packed and hilarious. It was fun to watch the characters go on their adventures and evolve as individuals. I really liked the modern twist to each of the gods. Despite the fact that this book is supposed to be for kids, it's a great series for people of all ages. I got myself this box set as soon as I had a few bucks. I look forward to reading Riordan's HoO series and the Kane Chronicles.
I originally wanted to get the hardcover box set with the first edition covers, but it was too expensive. I decided to get the paperback edition with John Rocco's new art on it instead. These covers are amazing. They make me want to keep reading the books over and over again. I highly recommend these books to anyone and everyone.

The books arrived in near-perfect condition (the box was slightly dented, in transit I presume, but the books themselves are relatively untouched), and I thought the price was quite reasonable, too. Thanks for this!
Would buy again from the seller and the excellent packing, plus the super books
The finale was my favourite book. From the opening page it was action packed. And the ending was brilliant.
I'd recommend this series from the age of 10 and upwards. Adults will also enjoy the series.
If you have the money spare, I'd recommend purchasing the series on hard-cover. The paperback copies are okay for a single read, but since I enjoyed it so much, I intend to purchase this series on hard-cover. The PB books tend to get a bit 'tatty' after one or two reads.
They have some very dark quests but they do their best at every turn
