Promising start to a celebrated series
I'm finally getting around to this series. I found this first book enjoyable enough, and I'll continue reading. I think I would have gobbled this up when I was younger, and I'm glad to see my daughter doing so now. I especially love how the stories expose her so thoroughly to Greek mythology. I've heard that the writing gets better as the series continues, and I look forward to experiencing that. Lastly, I'm very impressed with Riordan's imagination. This was a ripe idea for a series, waiting to be plucked, and Riordan harvested it masterfully. I believe he deserves the success that he enjoys.
