Student Saturday - The Last Olympian - Rick Riordan

Student Saturday is a day I post reviews written by other students.  The review that follows is written by Garima

The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan was one of the greatest books I’ve ever read! It was juicy on the flavor of surprise, adventure, and mystery. The book was about a young boy named Percy Jackson, a demigod. A demigod is a half god and half mortal child. He is in this camp called Camp Half-Blood, a place for demigods, like Percy. Percy is the son of Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea. In this book, Percy has to stop Kronos, the god of time, since Kronos wants to take over Olympus and, the home of the Greek Gods and Goddesses. After all, if your fear of your children dethroning you comes true and you finally become your full self after a bad collapse, you would want to get revenge. This was Kronos’ idea of revenge. He wanted everything to himself. So, Percy goes on this magical adventure and meets allies and old friends that help Percy while on the road to stop Kronos and his army from taking over Olympus. What will happen? Read The Last Olympian to find out!

I think that students and teachers should read this book because the book has something that mostly everyone likes: a fictional adventure. Rick Riordan also has a good sense of humor in the book. The book reminds me of “The Chronicles of Kane because they both are by the same author, Rick Riordan and they are both about mythology. The only difference between the two books is that The Chronicles of Kane focuses on Egyptian Mythology, while The last Olympian is about Greek Mythology. The book teaches me not to always rely on friends too much, but when in need, ask for help. The book also taught me to never give e up, lose hope, and to always make the right decision.
