Publisher's Summary

An action-filled audio recording of The Lightning Thief, published to tie in with the release of the star-studded and eagerly awaited Percy Jackson film.
Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek god. I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. That's when things started really going wrong. Now I spend my time fighting with swords, battling monsters with my friends and generally trying to stay alive.
This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea . . .

Terrible narrator

Would you try another book written by Rick Riordan or narrated by Walter Lewis?

We were really excited for this book, but the narrators voice was nauseating! Couldn't get past the first 20 minutes. Very disappointing. Waste of money


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

A different narrator.

Not clear this was abridged version!

That was a waste of money for an abridged version - would have been nice if it was marked CLEARLY as much.
The narration was also really annoying with all of the background sound effects.
Butchered a good story.
