Doors are for people with no imagination I will always remember when I first read this It was back in 2009 I was over at a friend s house when her older sister, Emma, recommended it to me I just know you ll love it, she told me when she handed her copy over.You have to understand that, at this point, I wasn t a big reader Yeah I didn t mind reading, but I also didn t love it I didn t sit down for hours on end with a book in my hand I didn t value the power of words as much as I do now The closes [...]

To preface this I don t recommend this book 98% of my friend s list will hate it It s not good It s the memory of the book and the utter enjoyment I felt while reading it which gave it four stars.Skulduggery Pleasant is a series I discovered during my first year at high school I was on a vampire kick after falling in love with Twilight but figured I should read something else instead of re reading the series for the 50th Due to this, I found many of my favourite series of today including City of [...]

Ich schwanke hier zwischen 3 und 4 Sternen, drum gebe ich einfach 3,5 danke f r nichts brigens Ich fand den Hurmor Sarkasmus in dem Buch echt klasse und auch der Plot war gut durchdacht F r ein Middlegrade Buch kam auch die Spannung nicht zu knapp und es wurde sich an die Logik des erdachten Universums gehalten, was bei mir immer Pluspunkte gibt Auch der Schreibstil war angenehm, aber durch das Alter der Zielgruppe auch recht simpel, ohne viel Schnickschnack Auch wenn unsere Protagonistin erst [...]

I have had the print book on my bookshelf for years, but I decided to try the audiobook from my library as this looked like it would be fun to listen to Turns out I was right This was a lot of fun The narrator was great He had a delicious Irish accent, although he modified it to suit other characters I liked his sort of flat tone he used for Skulduggery, making him sound kind of ironic and mysterious, like there was a lot going on under the surface.At first, it s a bit odd There s some weird mus [...]

I really tried to like this book I really did.I failed My major issue was that it was all 150% predictable The story felt like I had read it all before A little Harry Potter with a little Mission Impossible and a pinch of X Men and a grain of blabla The character writing was superficial and especially the heroine, Stephanie, did not convince me at all Flat, unlikeable, unbelievable, one dimensional From one day to the next, she lives in a world she didn t know existed, and guess what She is just [...]

Review first postededwardsghostengine.wordpress.Usually, if a friend of recommends a young adult book featuring a magic and walking, talking skeleton.who is also wise cracking and hilarious I would have turned my nose up thinking it was too young and silly But this book proved right from the first pages that it was worth giving a chance.First of all I loved Skulduggery from the moment we met him He was funny, smart and also badass and the author did a really good job of making him feel real desp [...]

Skulduggery Pleasant is Derek Landy s first book for children, and the second is already in the can, which is a Very Good Thing His characters are broadly drawn, meaty, yet precise like Chinese calligraphy done with a big fat brush dripping with ink The dialogue is snappy, with some fun deconstructionist bits and the plot is just twisty enough not even the very close listener Mr Four could find any holes.But the real revelation here is Skulduggery Pleasant himself, a several hundred year old liv [...]

Note from the charming Georgina s comments on this review, I ve come to believe I am too far outside the age range I still believe what I wrote, it s just that the concerns of my review are mostly irrelevent to the book s average reader Cheers Disappointing The title name and the cover illustration really appealed to me, but the book was generic and unbelievable from the start I suppose some could be forgiven considering that the intended audience appears to be maybe 11 year olds , but I persona [...]

There is a lot of awesome in this book Yes, yes there is.I m pretty extra sure I ll be continuing with this series because HUMOUR FINALLY I don t know what it is, but most books don t get into the real dry sarcastic epic humour And it s a shame because dry humour is the best Skulduggery and Stephanie are the most epic banter pair of ever I m still giggling over Skulduggery s quips Like this Skulduggery Things are going to get a bit rougher from here on in, and I need someone to fight by my side [...]

There s no such thing as winning or losing There is won and there is lost, there is victory and defeat There are absolutes Everything in between is still left to fight for Serpine will have won only when there is no one left to stand against him Until then, there is only the struggle, because tides do what tides do they turn.RTC

Interesting odd little book, a dead wizardrt of Well, I mean he s a skeleton, and you know, no skin or organsbut he s not really dead Sort of.Is this a kids book It did strike me as odd how the reaction to a walking, talking skeleton didn t freak Stephanie out completely.Not a bad book, help track down the Faceless onesif you dare hee hee hee or is that bwa ha ha Some have suggested that there are some similarities between the Faceless Ones and Lovecraft s Great Old Onesting in a youth book don [...]

Detective story with a fantasy twist Skulduggery Pleasant is a sentient skeleton, detective, who also can do magic He s good natured, with a delightfully dry wit He teams up with 12 year old Stephanie to find out who killed her beloved uncle Stephanie is spunky, clever and pretty quick witted herself Their good natured bickering and conversations often had me chuckling out loud Their relationship is what I liked best about this story Being a detective isn t all about torture and murder and monst [...]

So deliciously entertaining I really loved the whole experience of this book The story is excellent, and the narrator is outstanding, bringing this to a solid five stars from me.This is the story of twelve year old Stephanie, who inherits her beloved but somewhat mysterious author uncle s fortune and estate after his sudden death The unusual stranger at the reading of the will catches her eye his voice, his mannerisms, his name who is named Skulduggery Pleasant, after all , all so strange yet so [...]

I loved this book I found it listed on one of best audiobooks lists, and boy were they right I m sure I would have enjoyed the story in print as well It s the kind of story I like, with a plucky but slightly snarky kid and a cool magical mystery And Skulduggery just takes it over the top with his cool lines and risky moves But listening to the book as read by the incredible Rupert Degas made it extraordinary He made every character feel totally real Skulduggery is cool, funny and sly Stephanie i [...]
