This weekend we saw The Lightning Thief. Although I figured they’d take some liberties with the story, I didn’t expect them to make such sweeping changes. I suppose that if I hadn’t read it, I would have quite enjoyed it. It was great in the special effects department. But their choices of what scenes to leave out and which ones to dwell on interminably, and which characters to combine and leave out, were perplexing, and rather dissatisfying.
As usual, I recommend that you read the book instead.
