    "This is a really cool novel about child-age fantasy heroes. I got it for my son and I he really liked it. The text is readable for someone as young as six, but at the same time I'm sure if a six year old reads it they will greatly improve their reading skills. Highly recommended, in fact I would recommend that every school library have it in stock."

    "Percy Jackson and the Olympians has always been a good set of books for early teenagers to read. They are entertaining and well written - plus they don't have too many mature themes in them. The Last Olympian is no different. I would highly recommend it for teens who enjoy Greek mythology."

    "The book itself isn't exactly bad, but we are talking about teens and Greek mythology. I think they're able to handle much more than a romanticized book with a good bit of fluff to it. Even if you fail to get into the darker parks of Greek Mythology, you can still find solid stuff."
