Readers will lament that the Percy Jackson movies pale in comparison to the books. If the movies are the only experience that a person has with Percy Jackson they need to run, not walk, to read the books. The movies have countless inaccuracies and differences from the book, the most noticeable being that the actors are aged more than 5 years away from how old the characters are supposed to be. The storyline in the movies is also incredibly different from what takes place in the books. The movies miss so much of the interaction that takes place between characters. Those who have only seen the movies are also missing out on some of Percy Jackson’s wonderful narrations.
