This book is wonderful and unique. I really enjoyed reading it. Skulduggery Pleasant himself is a funny gentleman who has a darker side. This book is not only thrilling but it also reviews alot of things about society and such. The characters are loveable (and of course, hateable.) I recommend ANYONE to read this book.

I am very happy with Rupert Degas reading of this delightfully witty book. I eagerly await Derek Landy's new books to share with my nine year old boys.

This is a really fun book, full of interesting characters, adventure, and action. I was engaged right from the first page. Skulduggery Pleasant is a skeleton detective with a dry wit and a quick mind and full of snappy quips. You know right away when he appears at the fringes of his friend’s funeral that he is going to be interesting and full of character. He teams up with twelve year old Stephanie to find the Sceptre of the Ancients after her uncle’s death. There is mystery and intrigue right away, pulling both Stephanie and the reader into a magical world hidden in just below the surface of the everyday world. I liked Stephanie — she is feisty and fearless, willing to fight for what is right. She is sensitive and thoughtful, but also determined, is able to stand up for herself, and is up for adventure. Landy has created a fantastic magical world in this book, filled with interesting characters and menacing villains. Many of the characters are stereotypes, however, with the evil ones having no redeeming qualities and the good ones very sympathetic. This is a great start to the series and I can see kids racing through these books.

Skulduggery Pleasant is a wonderful series by Derek Landy. I would recommend this book to anyone. It falls into Fantasy/Mysteries. I have re-read this book multiple times and it really pulls you in even on the third time! Landy Is a great author. The book is witty and intriguing. It left me waiting for book seven! -Hugo

For anyone who is a fan of Alien PI or random 80s nostalgia, you will probably love this book! Skullduggery Pleasant is a unique character who is both dark and yet caring. I really enjoyed reading this and hope to read the next.

This book is about Stephanie, a young girl of 12 and her adventures that follow after her Uncle Gordon's death. Young Stephanie finds herself tied into situations she never would have expected to be involved in. These magical situations with her companion Skulduggery Pleasent involve a scepter, and magical wizards who will stop at nothing to get it. Skulduggery's story of his death is cold and bitter, that's why he wants revenge. Stephanie expected there to be more of her life, but not cleavers and hollow men trying to kill eachother. Ghastly, Skulduggery's best friend and apprentice in the story is a tailor with a sensitive side. his mother was a professional fighter and his father was a tailor, such as he. the situations are crazy in many ways, Thank you Derek Landy for this exciting novel.

This was a very pleasant book to read. Very entertaining from the beginning to the end. The friendship between the two characters is heartwarming, even though one is a skeleton. It has so much action and adventure that will make you laugh. Skulduggery is a funny "man"! Enjoy
