Death Note: Another Note (Death Note 0)
There's a serial killer on the loose in Los Angeles and the local authorities need help fast. For some reason the killer has been leaving a string of maddeningly arcane clues at each crime scene. Each of these clues, it seems, is an indecipherable roadmap to the next murder.
Onto the scene comes L, the mysterious super-sleuth. Despite his peculiar working habits - he's neve...more
This was one of the best, no, the best murder mystery that I have read before!
It was so nice to be able to see familiar chareters in a new setting and writing style. The ending made a little sad though... I was hoping that Rue Ryuzaki was really L, cause' the authors description fit him 'almost' perfectly. And, having Mello as the narrorator was really awsome!
This book is the kind of book, where I hope that the author never wants to commit a murder, cause, if they did, they w...more
Non-essential for enjoying Death Note, but, it really does add so much more to the experience.
now whether that was intentional i cannot say, but in the interests of charity i will assume the author is aware the character he choose to narrate it should have been dead at the time of telling. either that or in possession of an ability to see the future which begs the question, why does he let himself die the way he does in death note?
you can see why i like the dead man talking theory better.
and hey, it explains how he somehow knows...more
While this is indeed a prequel, this isn't for people who haven't read or finished the Death Note series. You'll have the series spoiled for you before you even finish the first chapter. Also, it won't make nearly as much sense.
It's a fairly short book with the same detective st...more
That said, the novel ended up being funner than I expected. I went in anticipating a very dry, flat writing style, and to some degree, it was, but the author's Mello voice (Mello is the narrator) is fairly decent, and th...more
When reading this book I learned from the character Rue that "It doesn't matter if a child or adult gets killed, its the same." I really struck me and makes me ponder the idea from time to time. And in truth he is right because when you kill someone you take that lif...more
Firstly, the book itself is simply beautiful to look at and feel, it is extremely well made and one of the main reasons I actually brought it. The artwork inside, especially the first colored picture of Naomi and Ryuzaki, is simply beautiful (And would make a great tattoo!).
So it's one in the morning and it's either this is an amazingly good book or my mind's too groggy to really keep up with a detective novel. I cursed a whole lot throughout my sitting and I actually meant my curses. Especially during the conclusion where it all came crashing down on me.
I'm an easily scared person, so I avoid horror and thriller movies at all costs. I even postponed reading Death Not...more
So, I liked it? I rated 4. Yes I liked it.
Let's talk about the rundown first. The B.B had shinigami eyes. Well, I didn't like it at all. I think the Shinigami eyes were mentioned as a fan service, I'm a fan But I don't like stupid fan services. And shinigami eye is a stupid edition to the novel. (To all the franchise out there, please don't ruin your reputation doing...more
For some reason, the primary twist about the character of Ryuzaki was one that I already latched onto almost immediately. Apparently I was supposed to believe one thing about Ryuzaki, but I never did, so the twist failed to be a twist for me and I was left feeling l...more
The only thing I absolutely hated were the ridiculous names. I still don't understand what that was about. Was it done on purpose? Was the author trolling? Was it just a crap translation of Japanese names? Anyway, I...more
I laughed quite a bit.

My biggest complaint about this work is that NISIOISIN, the author, mus...more
No. But dont be disappointed. This book centers around F.B.I. agent Naomi Misora and the world's greast detective L. The only real connection with the manga besides the main characters is the killer is said to have the eyes of the shinigami.
The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases - three deaths and the police have no leads or suspects. It takes ten victims usually before L gets involved but this killer has left clues only L or those working for L could pos...more
