By reading the book "Percy jackson", we can chose various of important genres for the book such as mythology and Fiction. The book is writen by Rick Riordan and its about a boy living in a fantasy world during current time and facing the truth about the existence of old greek gods.
One of my favorite books I’ve read in my experience is apart of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson Series. His fictional stories about greeks and gods took my interest right away because it opened my imagination to a new realm I’ve never thought of before.

Apollo was a man of trust who excelled and supported all of the fine arts of the Greek civilization such as music, art, and poetry (God Apollo). One of the most underestimated traits of Apollo was his healing powers, in which he helped out many Greeks in desperate times, like the Trojan War (Cartwright). The Greek God Apollo was the most influential among Greek people because of his recognition for music, the truth, and healing powers.

In Greek Mythology a rivalry always occurs between certain Gods and Goddesses. In the case of Apollo and Dionysus there is no exception.

Research performed on the Apollo temple at Delphi by experts such as Dr. Jelle Zeilinga De Boer of Wesleyan University and Dr. John R. Hale of the University of Louisville have helped prove the previous accepted theory of how the Oracle at Delphi received her prophetic powers. The Gaseous Vent Theory originates from ancient texts that claim the Oracle at Delphi received her powers due to gas being emitted from a fault beneath the temple floor. Due to French archeologists and geologists not being able to find a fault in the area of the temple, the previously accepted Gaseous Vent Theory began to be questioned by many. Dr. de Boer was hired by the Greek government to determine if the Gaseous Vent Theory was indeed falsely based. Dr. De Boer was

(John 6: 53) Many in the crowd, upon hearing this, "turned back and no longer followed him." (John 60: 61, 66)
