Damn...
Start looking around you...
And all you see are people the world would be better off without.


Well, that escalated quickly, didn't it?

I have been wanting to read this for a while, so when I happened across it on my library's shelves yesterday, I picked it up instantly. This was a good choice. This nicely packed little examination of what might happen if a bored, idealistic teen (Light Yagami) suddenly had the ability to eliminate anyone whose name and face are known to him gets right down to business, and the race is on between the now serial killer teen and the as yet mysterious detective the world's police agencies bring in to stop him (L).

In addition to the nice in medias res pacing, I loved the complex characterizations at work in both Light and L, and the room left around Ryuk (the god of death who kicks this whole confrontation off). His motives are explained so far as needed and no further, and that is a very good thing. The tension in the story comes not so much from whether L will catch Light, but from the tragic setup inherent in the nature of the Death Note itself. Light's downfall is already set in the rules surrounding the power he is using, but the open questions left around Ryuk allow, for now, some degree of uncertainty. Is this truly a tragedy in the classic sense? Or is it a classic romance, with the hero destined to escape his certain destruction? I for one am very eager to find out. Unfortunately, volume 2 seems to have disappeared off my library's shelves since yesterday, so it seems I may need to make a trip to the bookstore...

Update January 27, 2019: Book holds up, review holds up. I love it when that happens! ( )

I completely forgot about Death Note!
I read it about five years ago. Bought the first two volumes, but was only able to finish the first one. Too YA maybe? ( )

Light Yagami finds a notebook. A very special notebook from the Shinigami - the death gods. If you write someone's name in this notebook, they die shortly afterwards - in any way you choose.

Maybe it was careless of the Shinigami to drop this? It does, however, make interesting entertainment to see what a human will do with this power.

Light thinks he can rid the world of criminals this way. All well and good, but then the FBI and the Japanese police force are after him so now he'll need to rid the world of those crime fighters as well.

The cycle can't really end, can it?

It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I plan to read more in the series. ( )

Very intriguing story that intertwines the real world with a spirit world of God creatures. Plenty of moral conundrums. It cracks me up how hyper-specific the rules for the notebook are! Lots of thought went into it. ( )

Though manga is not my favourite genre, I read this on the advice of my son (the coolest 13-year-old ever) and really enjoyed it. The main character, Light, is a bored, but clearly intelligent and over-achieving high schooler whose initial appeal to the book’s target audience of like-minded teenagers (and, dare I say, adults?) is almost certain. His (semi-)partner in crime (or interested observer, at least) is a death god (shinigami), whose facial expressions and banter with Light made me guffaw outright. This shinigami, too, is bored, and has left his instrument—the Death Note—where a human is sure to find it and put it to use for the shinigami’s amusement.

The reader’s early identification with Light becomes a somewhat troubling tension pretty quickly, though, as he discovers the power of the Death Note and, weirdly, isn’t afraid to use it. It was a little hair-raising, to be honest, how quickly Light shifted from bored teenager to a morally ambivalent killer-by-proxy whose primary obsession is killing off criminals using the notebook.

I read another review here that suggests the book is neither macabre, nor about killing people—um, yes, it is. At the very least, it raises some interesting questions (in our house, anyway) about the morality of capital punishment.

The book is an engaging, quick read and I’m looking forward to reading issue #2.
