The Lightning Thief
by Rick Riordan
Analysis: POV/Narrative Voice
First Person (Central) Narrator
Straight from the horse's mouth. But Chiron isn't our narrator – Percy Jackson is. Percy tells us the story of his sixth-grade year and the summer that follows that year. He wastes no time warning us that the story he is about to tell us is a dangerous one. We're in luck, too, because he doesn't spare us any juicy details. He tells us everything, including how he feels about other characters and about how his life is going. It's almost like we're reading his diary. We get front row seats to his life.
