The major theme of this book is Identity. Percy never felt like he could fit in, but that all changes when he realizes he is a demigod and has an identity to his own. Minor themes include perseverance, transformation, and loyalty.

Stops along the trip.
I really enjoyed this book. The adventures and what they had to achieve to get to one goal was very interesting and there always seemed to be trouble that they could get around.It was one of the best books I've ever read.
