Not as good as the first four
on 1 September 2014
Meh... This is the first book in this series that has been disappointing. It just doesn't have the same 'feel' as the others. And I think its because Light is now oblivious to his former self and what/who he was before all memories of the death note were carried out. He was such an interesting character when he and L were playing their game of wits. But in this one he is now one of the good guys and I just didn't like it. It was a little boring and slow and not much happened for most of the book.
But... the only thing that has left me optomistic for future volumes is that the last chapter was really really good! The pace picks up the plot gets 'interesting' again. So I'm hoping this continues into volume 6 so that I can get back to loving this series again. Still recommend the series overall but not a huge fan of this volume.
