Skulduggery Pleasant & The Book Thief

untitled‘Skulduggery Pleasant’, by Derek Landy:

This book is fast-paced, funny and incredibly daring. It follows the story of Stephanie Edgely after she discovers a new world lurking beneath the ordinary. It includes fun-loving characters such as a skeleton detective who can shoot fire! Even though the main character is a girl, this book is so full of action, you won’t even notice. Overall, even though this book is aimed at a younger audience, I think that anyone of any age can enjoy it.

‘When Death tells a story, you really have to listen.’ This one line makes me want to read this book all over again. Imagine a little girl being adopted in Nazi Germany, she steals books. The story of Leisel is a sad one indeed- narrated by Death and the colours of the sky. This book may seem a little difficlut to get into at first, but is full of lovable characters which you find yourself attached to immensely. You will cry at the end, I assure you but that makes it all the more endearing.
