Book Review: Skulduggery Pleasant #1 by Derek Landy - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (23 Sep 2012)
I was pleasantly surprised by Skulduggery Pleasant even as an adult its a tremendously fun novel, fast paced, great plot and well though out.
Skulduggery Pleasant is basically a Skeleton but also a private detective. Skulduggery Pleasant is an excellent character while reading more of the book you realize just how well though out his person is. He is fast witted and very funny. Some of the one liners he comes out with will have you laughing out loud.
Stephanie is the young girl who is drawn into mystery.
For a kids book I was impressed by the plot and would highly recommend it with kids and adults alike.
