Great series for kids but average for adults
28 October 2014
While I'm sure this would be appealing to kids, it does not have the dual appeal for adults as a lot of the other YA fiction does like Hunger Games, Divergent etc. Unlike the characters in other YA fiction, the main characters in the Percy Jackson novels act their age which although refreshing just isn't appealing for an adult.
I would highly recommend this series to kids/teenagers, however not for adults.
