Book Review — The Lost Hero

The Lost Hero (The Heroes of Olympus, #1)The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Antiquity background on which the story sits is interesting and, dare I say, educational. Although the story is not a Harry Potter look-alike, the main characters are: Jason, the bewildered and reluctant leader, Leo, the comic relief and goofy genius, and Piper, the girl in the trio who seemingly has no useful powers but is the “heart” of the trio.

The writing is good and reads well, but this is a big book with nearly 600 pages. Since it is the first book in a series, this means a serious investment in reading time. Nevertheless, if only because of all the Gods (Greek and Roman) and all the associated monsters and fabulous creatures, The Lost Hero is a fun read.

    Oh gods! I love this book! I just finished reading it and I can’t wait to read the next installment. I’ve also read the percy jackson series and I really love how Rick Riordan played with the Greek myth characters. I super love it!!! 🙂

    It is a fantastic book. I liked it better than the Percy Jackson books, maybe because I’m more familiar with the Roman Gods, but I also found the quality of his writing was much, much better. Can’t wait for the next one!
