The Lightning Thief
By: Rick Riordan Characters Percy Jackson
6th grade, 12 years old, goes to a boarding school outside of NYC Personality- Somewhat lazy, ADHD and dyslexic. He loves his mom a lot but he doesn't see her very much. Description - Motivation- To finish the quest so the world won't end. Grover, he is a satyr who's trying to keep Percy safe Description - Personality- Motivation- He was told to keep Percy safe from bad things Plot Exposition- Rising Action- Climax- Falling Action- Resolution- Conflict Theme My Opinion Man vs. Self Percy doesn't know why he is the one who has to go against all of these things and no one will explain it to him. Man vs. other Percy and his friends have to get something away from a very strong force. I would rate this book at a 2 out of 5 stars This wasn't a very good book because even for a fiction, it seemed like too much of a fantasy to make a book out of. The theme of The Lightning Thief is to never stop trying. When Percy's Mom was killed he was mad but he didn't stop trying to get to safety. When Percy made his trip to get back what was stolen from Hades it was very hard, but him and his friends kept going and in the end they got what they needed back. Percy went to a boarding school outside of NYC and his mom lived in Manhattan. His dad never met Percy because he was "lost at sea". Percy's mom was killed by a bull - like monster and Percy had to keep running to where he was safe. He was later told his Dad was Posieden and had to go get something that was stolen from Zeus. The climax is when Percy had to go into the underworld by going to Los Angeles and going to take the lightning bolt that was stolen from Zeus to prevent a war. The falling action is when Percy, Grover, and Annabeth all go back east to the Empire State Building. The resolution of the story is when Zeus gets his lightning bolt back and the big war is prevented which keeps Hades being more powerful. Grover is usually lazy but he tries to do what he needs to.
