I had heard a lot of good buzz about Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy before I read it.  I was very  skeptical going in.  How much could you expect from a book about a skeleton detective?  Still, I decided to suspend my disbelief and dive in.  Thanks goodness I did!  This book is absolutely wonderful!  I am not saying it isn't strange, but it's a good kind of strange!  A unique reading experience!  And absolutely hilarious!  The humor is very dry and quick, you definitely have to be on the lookout for it!  Once I started reading, I didn't want to stop.  The action is non-stop.  And the realtionship between Skulduggery and Stephanie immediately draws you in!  Their interactions are hilarious and very entertaining!  The best part about the book is that it doesn't take itself too seriously!  Skulduggery can be in mortal danger and still be cracking jokes.  Derek Landy definitely has a wonderful imagination and we, the readers, definitely benefit from it!
