One child is a reader and loves the Percy Jackson series. One child is NOT a reader, but was attracted to this book and loved it. I would recommend this to those children that do not read much, but need to meet a goal (such as AR) or may need a little boost to find something exciting and interesting to read before taking on a full scale novel. One disappointment is the book is only like a 1.0 point for AR, but that's minor and somewhat understandable.
This is a great way to get a visual idea of the event that happen in the book.
But, if your gonna get this read the book also, the book explains the characters emotion on situations that the comic really doesn't bring out. Some of the chapters seem to be chopped up and take out some little things but, not anything really damaging to the story. Every important details is shown, only thing it doesn't do for me is express the emotion in the characters, like you get from reading the book, that I like to read, which is to be expected.
This is must buy! A million times better than the movie, but the novel is the best way to enjoy these stories. Still a must buy for Percy Jackson fans who enjoy the story and wanna get a visual of the story.
