    Great dialogue, great characters, messy-ish plot

    Probably the best book from Phase 2 so far. There's a lot going on and the plot can sometimes get a bit messy but the characters are just as likeable as before, the dialogue still makes me laugh and it has excellent LGBT representation. And the new instances of worldbuilding were very interesting! And of course, like any Skulduggery book, it often broke my heart. Honestly, if you're considering buying Bedlam, you've probably already read books 1-11 and if you're in this deep there's no stopping now!

    Fantastic

    The newest edition to the Skulduggery Pleasant series is no disappointment. I’m a hardcore Skulduggery fan, so I’m obviously a little biased, but it lived up to expectations and I devoured it. Wraps up multiple plot lines while unravelling a major plot twist. It can get confusing at times, so it’s best if you don’t over think it and just roll with it. Highly recommended!

    This is Bedlam

    (DISCLAIMER- may contain spoilers from previous books.) So I was super excited about this book. What Skulddugger uber-fan wouldn't be? After the emotional sucker-punch reveal at the end of the last book there's no way you WOULDN'T want to know more. Plus Skulduggery book plotlines tend to come in mini trilogies, and I assumed the irritating loose ends in the last book would get shockingly revealed in this one. Add to that a marketing strategy based around the fact EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS WRONG, and you've successfully hyped up an extremely obsessive group of readers. And when you do that, you gotta deliver. But the thing is... Bedlam didn't really do that. We still don't know why Tanith wants to kill China, or why Finbar died, or what the actual POINT is of Sebastian Tao. (I'm serious. The guy's been there for three books. What has he ACTUALLY DONE that has any impact on the rest of the narrative?) In terms of structure, it's pretty much Midnight but with Tanith (Yay!). In the beginning there's some stuff Valkyrie and Skulduggery do because reasons, and then a BIG THING happens (which is not THAT dissimilar to the BIG THING in Midnight) and everything kicks off, culminating in a massive showdown. The thing is, Bedlam has ANOTHER plot/subplot (or considering it seems to be the plot on the blurb, maybe the OTHER plot is a subplot) which is about Val ON A DESPERATE MISSION TO RECOVER HER SISTER'S LOST SOUL (I'm quoting the blurb). And, just as with the Abyssinia plot, as a plot in itself, it's fine, it works and, in a series where the books have become instalments rather than self-contained adventures (and that's also fine), it helps move the saga forward. But it has side-effects. Bedlam feels like two books crammed into one. And the plot as a whole is... and don't get me wrong, it's still a great read... but it's a MESS. Seriously. I've just finished re-reading it, and I STILL don't know what was going on for half of it. I complained Midnight was complicated, but it's still kind of possible to keep track of throughout if you don't examine it too closely. Bedlam's plot is so overcomplicated that if you get too involved you're in danger of losing it. ESPECIALLY when you add all the side storylines in. Which is a shame, because there's clearly some good stuff in there. We learn about Ghastly and Skulduggery's first meeting, and some tantalising hints of China's past. We get Tanith! We get (some) Fletcher! There's the first appearance of Serafina. And RAZZIA CHAPTERS! Razzia! Narrating! I know Sanguine was a fan-favourite, but personally, Razzia all the way. Omen gets a bigger role, which is nice. But possibly the two most interesting bits are Val's gradual decline in sanity and the socio-political bits. Valkyrie isn't exactly mentally stable. This is no surprise- she witnessed her insane evil side personfied kill a bunch of people and now everybody hates her. But the whole Midnight Hotel thing didn't exactly help and we get to sit there like a voyeur with popcorn as she teeters on the brink. But on to the socio-political bit. I praised Landy's knockoff Trump in my last review, but he gets a bigger role in this one, and I'm honestly not sure whether or not I like it. I know he was meant to be a clever little alternate reality where Trump got in, but it does start feeling a bit on-the-nose after a while. I don't like Trump either, but it feels like putting politics into a fantasy story is going to date the books in the long term. But the big issue- for fans, anyway- with this book is the VALKYRIE HAS A GIRLFRIEND! thing. I was desperate to find out who it was, mostly because we know how Val's last relationship ended. It's fairly predictable who it turns out to be. I mean, I'm pleased. I like that character- she's cute. My main point is, it's a huge thing. Phase 1 had exactly as much LGBT representation as most mid-noughties YA fantasy novels; none. Phase 2 has been much better, and, amongst the madness, it's nice to see Val struggling with something so mundanely adolescent. On the other hand, the 'all people are more or less bisexual moment' did make me cringe. As far as I know, there's been no backlash against bi Valkyrie, but a few people have called this bit out in their reviews, and I have to agree with them. I have no idea why it made me feel so uncomfortable. The thing is, I don't entirely DISAGREE with this; bi means attracted to both genders not necessarily at the same time or to the same degree, and that's pretty far-reaching. It just... feels like applying a label to a huge group of people, who probably have other thought-through labels . Otherwise, it's handled pretty well. There are parts of Bedlam where, even as a fan, your brain is so confused you ask whether there's any point continuing. Then you realise Derek Landy, mad bastard and evil genius that he is, knows this and leaves four cliffhangers at the end to keep you craving the next book. Yes, I will read it. There's no hope for me; I'm an addict.
