Skulduggery Pleasant book review
This thrilling first novel in a much wider series sets the reader off on a trail of laughs, mysteries and suspense. When I first read this I was slightly skeptical, because even though many of my friends had loved the series, all I saw was a funny looking skeleton in a suit with some fire in his hands. This will be . . . interesting I thought. I was oh so totally wrong. This book was the start of a great series that only gets better. I literally was staying up until midnight to read this, and the only reason I put it down was because I was so tired that I couldn't concentrate on the words anymore. A great read. Would definitely recommend to anyone, especially someone struggling to find something to read.

one of the best books ever to be read
Once you start reading it, you can't get your eyes off the book until you finish it.
I suggest you to read it because I have the personal experience of how good the book is actually.
I can't suggest a similar book because there is nothing similar to this.

I suggest you to read it
