First of all I'll have to say that this book was actually one of the first Japanese light novels I read that was this well translated! Another thing I enjoyed reading this even when I haven't yet watched the whole anime. This book put me back on hype to finish this anime as it's a prequel that tells the back story of the main anime characters. I'd recommend reading this even if you never heard of the anime cause it's that good.

This is a novel in case you were thinking. also this one had confused me at first but then I understood what it was trying to tell. I was telling the story of there past and how somethings led up to the next. It was a good book and really clears up a few things.

I can't even rate this one. I love Code Geass so much but I read this like it was a fantasy fan-fiction in my head and not a book. Any extra glimpse of Lelouch and I'm there!

I don't care what anybody says about this being more fanfiction than novel; I enjoy the interpretatio of the characters' younger selves and the foreshadowing.

Some background to Lelouch and Suzaku and their childhood is explored which is very cute and a welcome addition to the universe.

I found this in a pile of old manga, which was pretty awesome.
This is a lot better than the other novelization I read. This one gives more information of the summer they spent together as kids, and between this and the audio dramas, you can get a pretty clear picture of what happened then.

I've never watched the anime or read the manga, I was just looking for something that looked interesting and picked this off the shelf. In all brutal honesty, I don't think this book really makes it as a stand alone. There was little to no plot, and hardly any character development. The novel was especially short, and sounded more like a script rather than an actual novel. I felt cheated out of descriptions and felt no sympathy for the characters I couldn't relate to and didn't know well enough. ...more
