"This production is exactly the reason young adult fantasy fare can work so well as audio entertainment. Narrator Rupert Degas...does a bang-up job here....This is dark comic fantasy, and Degass timing and complete grasp of the main character's personality couldnt be better." (AudioFile)
I have only just bought the first book yesterday and could not put it down 10 mins! Story is awesome always keeps you guessing and the characters are funny, cheeky and sarcastic. I finished it in one day enjoying every it of it and this, the second book, is just as good! Buying and finishing it today and buying the third book for tomorrow to listen to.
"Heaps of fun to listen to."
Two of the books in this series were not available on audible which REALLY spoilt the experience overall
"Not for the deep thinker, science fantasy fun"
Well read and moved along at a good pace. Character descriptions painted a clear picture in the head.
Probably I Claudius, fancy a bit of Roman drama
Narrator was very good, one of the books strengths
No, unless it was a cartoon. Would not get a large enough following.
"Good journey fodder"
Both sons enjoying this series. Good mixture of slightly scary and decent plot. Is leading them back into reading the books too.
It never occured to me that Skullduggery would be Irish but this works so well and makes the humour so much funnier. Excellent narration & I have already downloaded the next two books in the series.
One of the best books
Looking forward to the next book and after that the next and the next
And so on.
Scary for this age 9
"Excellent book for all ages"
The book skullduggery pleasent is an excellent read with adrenalin filled action scenes that are suited to all ages. I particularly liked where the scenes are based in ireland, it suits the way i read very well, Derek Landy shas writen many skullduggery pleasent books and they are all excellently written the way be sets the book and the storyline. Sklduggery plleasent finds a normal school girl called Valkyrie Edgely who doesent really like school, her parents are boaringand she wants some action and excitement in her life. I wont spoil it for some readers but if you want a brilliantly written book by a brilliantly put together author who knows how to appeal a bookto all ages read this book.
One last good thing about the book is if you want a descriptive book that describes all the dark and and famous objects buy this book.
Now we get to some of the not so good chapters in the boo. Now their are only a few of these bad points as the book is basically perfect, in some of the chapters like hanging around chapters like that yes i know its the starting chapter but it could describe a few more things aswell as Valkyrie Cain. But tobknow what im talking about you.must read the book otherwise its an excellent book and i hope you enjoy it.
this was a lovely book. I'd read it before but wanted to try listening to it in order to relive my memory of it. was slightly different to how I imagined it would be but was very calming to listen to before bed. I did take a while to finish it.
Another great story quick one liners delivered with excellence. Bring on the next one I say!
This is a really good story and I enjoyed it a lot but i just wish it was less expensive...
