    1. "So you won't keep anything from me again?" He put his hand to his chest. "Cross my heart and hope to die." "Okay then. Though you don't actually have a heart," she said. "I know." "And technically, you've already died." "I know that too." "Just so we're clear."When Stephanie Edgley’s Uncle Gordon – a writer of horror novels – passes away, she meets his one-time friend Skulduggery Pleasant…who just happens to be a skeleton wizard-detective, that believes he is invincible and has the worl [...]

    2. “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 [...]

    3. I loved discovering this book; I thought it had a very fun mixture of magic, action, creepiness, and humor--plus, I really love the title character :-)

    4. 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 C [...]

    5. Ich schwanke hier zwischen 3 und 4 Sternen, drum gebe ich einfach 3,5 (danke für nichts übrigens 🙄😅). Ich fand den Hurmor/Sarkasmus in dem Buch echt klasse und auch der Plot war gut durchdacht. Für 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 [...]

    6. 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 wei [...]

    7. 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 [...]

    8. 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 de [...]

    9. “Doors are for people with no imagination.”Initial Final Page Thoughts.When I grow up I want to be Stephanie Edgley. High Points.Skulduggery Pleasant. Stephanie. Banter, so much banter. Dublin. Witty prose. Canary Cars. Supporting characters. Cloak and daggers shizz. Willpower. Magic. Raising Cain. The Girl from Ipanema. A fantastic start to a promising series. Low Points.As much as I love Skulduggery and Stephanie, I would have liked there to have been more time spent with the other charact [...]

    10. 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- [...]

    11. [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 [...]

    12. 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 fig [...]

    13. Word count: about 68 000Rating: I’ll finish you like a cheesecake For me it’s 3,5 * - keep in mind that it’s a positive rating. I liked that book. I really did.EDIT.The grand haze had been lifted! I come to tell you of a good book (no, don't shut your doors in my face, not that book, come on!). If you want a break from all the romance and drama (*I want to break feeeeeeeeeeee!*) of many today's books, you're in a right place! It's a pretty short book (well, as far as children's books are c [...]

    14. 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 more 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 you [...]

    15. I've heard so much about Skulduggery Pleasant and i finally decided to give it a try myself. I've always been drawn to these books, although i never had enough bravery to start them, because they are so many, but right now i'm glad i read the first one. It was really fun, easy to read and i can definitely see how the world is going to become even more complicated and interesting. Great beginning!

    16. 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 an [...]

    17. Страшно забавна книга! Имаше много действие, битки и всякакви епични неща. Самите герои бяха изключително добре измислени, хубаво странни и остроумни.Скълдъгъри е мега големият пич, но ако трябва да съм напълно честна, Танит Лоу ми е най-любимият герой от книгата. Страшно ми [...]

    18. she is irratating and he is weird.i am in love.i know this is not written for people my age but i really enjoyed it.i giggled and gasped well worth the read!a re-read in august after a lot of dissapointing books it's good to go back to something you know you already love.

    19. One of the best children's urban fantasy books ever. The plot is interesting, the heroine strong and intelligent (and a girl!), and the book is genuinely funny. I listened to the audio version and the reader is exceptional. I laughed out loud many times and couldn't wait to listen to the next one.

    20. 4.5Witzige Dialoge, toller Hunor, knackiger Schreibstil und spannende Handlung. Manchmal ging es mir einen kleinen Tick zu schnell, aber ich ja noch 8 weitere Bände Zeit die Geschichte zu genießen (:Ich freue mich drauf!

    21. 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 stran [...]

    22. 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. S [...]

    23. This was a perfect book for kids and not just. I loved every minute of it. Witty and hilarious and so much fun to read. There were more witty repartees in this book alone than in the sum total of my last 10 reads. Rupert Degas did a wonderful job as a narrator. He managed to convey the author's sense of humour with great skill. Then this guy is not bored by the book he's narrating, he does wonders!
