7090447First in the Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan, Red Pyramid was read by June 23rd 2010.

This is a great kids book, perfect for Percy Jackson fans, and good for people of any age really who enjoy mythology, especially Egyptian.  It has quirky, funny moments that kids and adults alike can appreciate.

The narrative if a little off though.  The voices switch from brother to sister and back again throughout the book which normally isn’t a bad thing.  However the transitions are not clearly identified right away so it’s a bit jarring when you think you’re reading one character’s point of view then it turns out to be someone else.

Aside from that it was pretty good.  Might continue with the series one day.
