Percy Jackson & the Olympians
Percy because he is the son of one of the big three and because He's so clueless
My favorite charecter is Annabeth. She is smart, funny, and like me in many ways! She saves Percys butt many times and has this neat invisability cap. If i were to be a demi-god i would probly pick Annabeth.
Go ANNABETH! I can`t wait to go see the movie tonight!
My favorite character is Annabeth. I really enjoy her from the start. I really like to watch her character develope throughtout the book. I enjoy her fierce attitude, and her loyalty to her friends.
She is a great role model for young girls.
My daughter has read the whole series. Her favorite character is Annabeth. She likes her because she is pretty girl that is wise but is also a strong warrior.
I have read the whole series and loved all of them. I like Blackjack. He is funny. I also think that the idea of the "party ponies" is great.
I <3 Greek gods and it seems like a great movie!! I really wanna see it!. Percy Jackson ( whoever plays him) seems like a good actor! Hope to see it :)
I picked The Lightning Thief out of a pile of books tha my 12 year old had in her closet. Since she did not even read it I thought I would so the book would not go to waste and collect dust. Little did I know I would get hooked on the series. I am in book 4 and loving it! My daughter soon followed suit in reading and she is on book 2. She also loves the guy chosen to be Percy Jackson in the film. I will be exciting to see the differences and enjoy the movie!!!
PJ&O fans in Reading, PA!!!!
My favorite character is Poseidon because even though hes a god he still cares about his son. Even though all the stuff that percy thought about him...(like being used by his father). Whats also cool about Posideon is that hes a god who kicked back and relaxed, with his bermuda shorts, hawiian shirt, birkenstocks and his fishing hat that reads "NEPTUNE'S LUCKY FISHING HAT."
Percy is my favorite character because he's my daughters fav. I was trying to win the giveaway for her birthday. She's a huge fan
It's hard not to say Percy Jackson. He has everything a great protagonist should, and being the son of Poseidon is pretty cool too haha :)
My favorite character is Percy, Grover, and Annabeth. I can't choose because they are all awesome. Percy is brave, Grover is a true friend, and Annabeth stands up for what she wants.
Percy Jackson character and why? Ares Be he has dark sunglasses and his eyes are fire. Plus he has a cool motorcycle and a awesome knife.
Percy is definitely my favorite character. As a mom of 3 sons, it is wonderful to discuss how Percy can work thru his huge problems and still come out great. Thru discussing how large his obstacles are, I hope my sons can see that there obstacles might not be as overwhelming as they seem. With the world in its state of wars, unemployment, shrinking family budgets, we need someone like Percy to inspire us.
My favorite character is Annabeth because.....
>see has such a tormented past*...but deals with it a does not let it show
>she uses a knife instead of a sword**
>and she cares for her friends with all her heart
*because of Luke
**which only the best and quickest fighters can do
My favorite character is Tyson the Cylops, but he doesn't appear until Book 2:The Sea Of Monsters. He's very funny, and I really like how he helped Briares, the Hundred-Handed One (first appearing in Book 4) escape Kronos's prison. I can imagine how a one-eyed character would look in a movie adaption of Book 2 (if there is one).
MY FAVORITE IS ANNABETH. SHES AWESOME NOT ONLY FOR BEING ATHENAS DAUGHTER BUT BECAUSE SHE STANDS HER GROUND AND IS FIERCE. BEST OF ALL HER LUCKY MAGIC CAP IS OF COURSE IS THE BEST TEAM EVER THE NEW YORK YANKEES ;~)
My favorite Percy Jackson character is Annabeth Chase, daughter of Athena because she is the daughter of Athena and Athena is awesome. She is really nice but she also isn't afraid to tell it how she sees it. She is also a main character that I could always relate to.
Percy is my favorite! He's a kid placed into this extraordinary situation and he excels. Not only does he rise to the challenge but he's there for his friends. And his powers are cool!
my favorite would have to be Chiron--if for no other reason than he stands in stark contrast to Dumbledore the manipulator. Percy's a strong second
My favorite character in this series is Percy. Percy has an awesome pen that turns into riptide, his incredible sword. That is every twelve year old boys dream toy. He's the son of Poseidon, who is the brother of the big three god's(Zeus&Hades). Thats some cool Uncles to have in the Family.
Percy because he's the son of Poseidon
My favorite character is Percy's mom. She's stubborn, intelligent and completely supportive of Percy and his friends. She provides a stable base in Percy's completely crazy life as a demigod.
My son first read all the books last year and told be to read them. Well I didn't have time until we both saw that they had made a movie about the first book. Well I had to read it. Five days later I had read all five books and the small demigod files. The story is amazing! My son identifies with Percy and Annabeth. He's adventurous and he is very smart. I would classify myself more like Poseidon and Athena mixed together. We love the book so much we hope that the author would write another installment of Percy and his friends adventures. I think the idea that all heroes have a fatal flaw is something we all should think about. What is that one thing that we just can't give up or just can't do without that may end up destroying us
My favorite character is Annabeth. i mean there's not alot of movies or books out right now where they have girls that can run along with the boys and fight back. I mean she can take care of herself when she needs to. I guess its just that she's this superhero type but she can have a crush on Percy and not be all conflicted about it. She's just a little bit of everything and she's might have some flaws but that's just human you know.
My favorite character is Ares. even though he was being used in the book, he has cool powers like making people mad for no reason. This sword in the book also sounded very awesome. even though he also loses his battle to Precy, Ares puts a eveil cure on him. Ares is my favorite
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
