If You Like Percy Jackson Books, You’ll Love…

Percy Jackson Synopses: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan is the first book in the Percy Jackson series. Percy Jackson’s life is anything but ordinary. On the brink of expulsion from yet another boarding school, he’s facing a barrage of challenges that go beyond the usual teenage troubles. Strange and mythical creatures, straight out of his Greek mythology textbook, are suddenly making appearances in the real world, and the ancient gods of Mount Olympus are intruding into his everyday existence. The book was adapted into a major motion picture.

The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan is the second Percy Jackson book. Following a summer filled with attempts to prevent a catastrophic war among the Greek gods, Percy Jackson’s seventh-grade school year takes an unexpected turn. Despite hoping for a quieter time, his life becomes anything but ordinary. His new friend, Tyson, a tall and mentally challenged homeless kid, becomes a constant presence, making it difficult for Percy to establish a sense of normalcy.

The tranquility is short-lived as Percy uncovers trouble brewing at Camp Half-Blood, the sanctuary for demigods. The magical borders protecting the camp are tainted by an unknown foe, leaving the camp vulnerable to mythological monsters. As the monsters threaten to overrun the camp, Percy realizes he must save it. To do so, he embarks on a perilous journey with his friends Grover, Annabeth, and Tyson. They must retrieve the Golden Fleece from the treacherous Island of the Cyclopes, now known as the Bermuda Triangle, before the end of summer. Failure would mean the destruction of Camp Half-Blood.

Throughout the journey, Percy discovers a shocking family secret that makes him question the true significance of being recognized as Poseidon’s son. As the group faces challenges and dangers, Percy must grapple with his identity and determine whether being connected to a god is an honor or merely a cruel twist of fate.

The Titan’s Curse is the third book in Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series. In a new adventure, Percy Jackson and his friends are faced with a dire situation when the goddess Artemis goes missing under mysterious circumstances. It’s strongly suspected that she has been abducted, raising urgent questions about the identity of the perpetrator. As the ones closest to Artemis, Percy and his companions must take on the task of uncovering the truth behind her disappearance.

The urgency of the situation is compounded by the looming winter solstice, a pivotal moment when Artemis’s absence could significantly impact the Olympian Council’s crucial decision regarding the ongoing war with the titans. In order to prevent potentially disastrous outcomes, Percy and his friends embark on a mission to locate Artemis before the solstice arrives.

As they delve deeper into the mystery, Percy finds himself faced with another enigma—the existence of a rare and powerful monster that Artemis was actively hunting prior to her vanishing. This monster holds the potential to bring about immense destruction, even posing a threat to the mighty realm of Olympus itself. In their race against time, Percy must not only find Artemis but also unravel the secrets surrounding this formidable creature. The fate of Olympus hangs in the balance, and Percy and his friends are determined to save both the goddess and their world from impending catastrophe.

        isn’t that always the case?

        Respectfully (really, no snark) disagree.
        Peter Jackson did a fine job with Lord of the Rings (though I realize many disagree, especially w/r/t increasing the significance of the Arwen and Eowyn subplots, and changing how they handled the participation of the Ents).
        And I thought the movie version of the John Grisham lawyer blockbuster, “The Firm,” was infinitely better than the book — much more clever and “lawyerly” resolution of the central problem.
        Some people (I’m not among them) think Kubrick’s “Clockwork Orange” was better than the Burgess novel.
        Ditto for “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” (Milos Forman and Ken Kesey, respectively — but whichever you prefer, Jack Nicholson’s brilliance as Randall Patrick McMurphy is undeniable.
        The movie of “Stardust” was different enough from the Neil Gaiman book that I almost consider them distinct works. I prefer the movie — but maybe that’s only because it’s the one I encountered first? Who knows what I’d have thought had I read the book beforehand?
        Just three more: I thought the movie version of “Hannibal” was better than the novel — especially the ending, which, in the book really stretched my credulity.
        Of the three films (so far) that have been made of the first Parker novel by “Richard Stark” (Donald Westlake), “The Hunter,” my favorite is the 1999 Mel Gibson vehicle, “Payback,” which I definitely preferred to the book version.
        And finally, the deeply under-appreciated “The 13th Warrior” was a good book — but a phenomenal movie (inestimably aided by the awesome Jerry Goldsmith soundtrack).
        YMMV, as always.

        ETA: How could I forget “The English Patient”?
        I could not decipher the book at all; the movie was wonderful — heartbreaking, but wonderful.
