First things first...DON'T BELIEVE WHAT THEY TELL YOU IN THE MOVIES
Who I thought Percy Jackson was...
Who Percy Jackson actually is...
Turns out this kid is like 12...who knew? Not me apparently.
It's refreshing to live inside the mind of a 12 year old boy every now and then. That's one thing I never thought I would every say, but its true. Events that would have been met with dramatic flare and a few choice words were a little lighter and made me laugh out loud.I'd love to tell you I had some deep revelation on my way down, that I came to terms with my own mortality, laughed in the face of death, et cetera.
The truth? My only thought was: Aaaaggghhhhh!
Percy is a character I can get behind and care about. He's strong yet unsure of himself. Loyal to his friends and family. Clever even though he's put himself in that 'not smart enough' box. And I can't wait to watch him and his friends grow up.
Thank gods this is only the start of the series and I have a lot more to read.
