He Said: Loved the book! This is the first in a series about a boy named Percy Jackson who discovers that everything he learned about greek mythology in his history class is real. In fact I recommend it to anyone who wants to read a good book. p.s. The movie comes out Presidents day 2010 can’t wait to see it. (To learn more about the book, don’t want to give anything away in this post, click the link above, to learn more about the movie click the link below.)
She Said: So…He Said asked me to read “The Lightning Thief” and I have to admit that at first I really didn’t want to read it. I was feeling guilty because Big He Said told He Said he would read it and he didn’t. So I started to read it and I COULDN’T PUT IT DOWN. In fact I read all 5 books AND the Demigod Files, but more about those on another day. I can’t ignore the fact that it is a similar premise as “Harry Potter”, but because I’ve learned about the greek Gods and Goddesses in the past I am more drawn to it than HP. Full disclosure: While I’ve seen all of the movies, which I really enjoyed, I’ve never read a Harry Potter book. The Lightning Thief is a great introduction to a subject kids will probably address one day in school. It has been out for awhile now, but with the movie coming out in February it is getting some new attention. He Said and I will definitely be the first ones in the theater when the movie comes out!
