This book is hauntingly luminous. David Almond not only has the uncanny ability to induce the reader to believe the unbelievable but also see, hear, sense, and smell it.
Its an unforgettable original story that is uniquely rare and transcendent.

Skellig is a very moving and up lifting story. It makes you think about the book and it makes you want to read more. This book could be a real life situation and can make you feel like you are in the book itself. My marks to it are ten out of ten.

I think Skellig was a brilliant book, I think that the excitement was intense throughout the middle of the story but as the story progressed to the end the excitement died down. The ending with the babys name of Joy was very dull. I liked the characters and the way the author, David Almond, changed Skelligs character at different times in the story. The story also contained a lot of suspense, which was sustained throughout most of the story making you want to read on. I think Skellig is appropriate for every reader and any age, it will impress anyone with its storyline, especially children. The main part of the story with Skellig found in the Garage and the Chinese takeaways, 27 and 53, make it almost seem real. That is along with all the other life-like features such as the owls and the babys heart. Even if you dont like the book you may still learn from it, such as the meaning of calcification or what an archaeopteryx is. Overall I give Skellig 9/10.

I'm one of the people who have read Skellig by David Almond at school.
I am recommending this book to you because this is a facinating book he has written I think it's better than the other books that he has written that I am now reading.
PLZ PLZ PLZ read this book

It's a deep, meaningful book. I never thought of shoulder blades or even anything related to a person with such features as Skellig. Like Mina says, "He's an extrodinary being." This is where things of abnormality and miracles give birth in a world of ordinary life. This is a book that should also be given a Newberry Honor. (though it might not be new anymore)
