Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Dude I love this! It was so funny! But I did see a lot of parallels to other things that I’ve read or seen. One parallel I didn’t appreciate was the one to Sanctuary, mostly because the show isn’t on and I want it to be. But also because they came out at the same time so it seemed very “hm… so who got the idea from whom?” (please don’t correct my grammar, it’s spring break).
Other than that, I thought it was wonderful and hilarious. The other comparison that I saw was a very Harry Potterish battle at the end but much funnier, and the “witty banter” between Serpine and Skulduggery was just amusing. But by far, my favorite part was the short story in the extras, it was hilarious. I felt bad for poor Scaramouch…
