I read the first Skulduggery Pleasent book a while ago and I thought it was terrible.It was really hard to distinguish who was talking and the story was strange

Congo is a terrific story, just don't start reading it late at night when there are high winds and mysterious noises around the house.
I read it when it was first published and couldn't get to sleep when I left off reading it. He paints some word pictures that are indelible and keep popping up in the mind's eye for some time afterward.

There are a lot of free books available for the Kindle. I have a bunch of mysteries, some new authors offer the first in a series free and subsequent titles for 99¢ and on up.

Poor Bouncy, you should stop picking on her Pip just because she likes her Kindle. ;) :mrgreen:

I got talked out of getting a Nook by a Barnes and Noble member of staff when I was at the Worldcon this year, because I did not have a US postal address and there might be a problem with the copyright on books this side. :(
