L: Percy is funny in a very-uncool-guy kind of way, which in my eyes makes him cooler. After all, anyone who can laugh at himself is awesome.
So we follow Percy into the world of the Greek gods full of demigods, satyrs, nymphs, Cyclopes, hippocampi, pegasi, centaurs, enchantresses, giants & and so much more. We see him develop from the bullied, dyslexic twelve-year-old boy to a potential warrior.
Rick Riordan wrote The Lightning Thief beautifully.
