The story is good too. It improved on the couple of things that bothered me in the movie. There is hilarity from seeing a more human side of L - other reviewers say it is out of character, but I could imagine him doing all things told in the novel. The only thing I would change would be how the doctor died as it was less dramatic than it was in the movie. And yes...they actually brought in the REAL Near!! :D
Overall? Cool story, amazing product.
The tension and suspense of Death Note only continues to deepen with this volume. Light, L, Misa, and Light's father are all working toward the same goal, and that is to catch what is seemingly a third Kira. At the center of all of this is the Totsuba group, a committee of seven men who meet regularly to discuss who must die next in order to further the Yotsuba Corporation's power in the commercial and financial world. Yet what isn't clear is who within this group is actually Kira, and Light and L must go about solving this mystery. All the while, Light, without his memories of being the previous Kira, must battle the suspicions of L, who still believes that Light is the main source of the original killings, and Light must do this while being perpetually hand-cuffed to the shoeless mastermind L.
I felt that the previous volume slowed down a bit toward the end, and the same is true for the beginning of this volume. But soon into it the action picks up as the mysteries are unraveled surrounding the Yotsuba group. By the end, you'll be hungry for even one more chapter of Death Note, as it leaves you with one massive cliff-hanger. This is yet another great addition to the Death Note series and I highly recommend it to anyone who is enjoying the series to this point.
The book itself is about L doing one last job as THE Greatest Detective, and it's fun and weird and sad. I really like how aftermath everyone from the anime and mangas were spoken about. Misa included, because this is based on the movie ending with L alive and Light deceased. He chooses to take his own life by writing his name in the death note, I imagine because he's grief-stricken. That or he beat Rem to killing him right off, so he added the extra part about 23 days since the deaths can be altered. Anyway, it's got action, realism- you can tell the author did his/her research, it's got sweetness and great humor. It's a fun read even if you aren't familiar with Death Note, but are becoming a fan.
