November TBR

With only two months left until this year's reading challenge comes to a close, I've selected ten books that I want to finish before the New Year. If I read more than these ten, that's fine, but I do want to finish these books: NeuroTribes, A Storm of Swords , A Feast for Crows, A Dance With Dragons, Anansi Boys, Equal Rites, Moving Pictures, Small Gods, and Mort. I'm in the process of finishing up Neverwhere and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Macabre Tales from the Halloween Bingo, but once they are completed, I'm jumping right in to A Storm of Swords.

Death Note Black Edition Volume 1: Supernatural
Death Note: Black Edition, Volume 1 - Taskeshi Obata,Tsugumi Ohba

Ryuk, so creepy.

 

 

The combination of artwork and scenario, being able to kill a person just by writing their name in a notebook, should have made for a really interesting story, but certain aspects of the writing kept me from really falling in love with this.

 

There was a lot of repetition in this short volume. There are several rules for the Death Note and they are constantly repeated throughout the story, it got old real quick. I also didn't like how quickly everything unfolded. Light receives the Death Note and a few pages later he's killing people left and right. There's no moment where he really doubts what he's doing or a slow slide into him becoming somebody who wishes to rule over everybody. It's like he woke up one day and decided to be evil. Interpol and L caught on too quickly to what was going on and L's discovery of the way Light was killing everybody, felt too much like the author was giving him the answers. The entire story felt a little rushed and unpolished because of this. Despite this, I did enjoy it and look forward to reading the rest of the series.

Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon TBR October 2016
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: The Illustrated Edition - J.K. Rowling,Jim Kay
Death Note: Black Edition, Volume 1 - Taskeshi Obata,Tsugumi Ohba
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Macabre Tales - Wahsington Irving
Neverwhere - Neil Gaiman

I'm not expecting to get much reading accomplished this readathon. I caught whatever has been making the rounds at work, a little going away present from a co-worker. If it follows the trajectory of every single time I get sick, the worst will hit in the next three/four days. In that case, I'll be on the couch all day sleeping it off. On the off chance I'm feeling better, I have tickets to a hockey match I received from work that I had planned to attend with my brother, sister, and my sister's girlfriend. So with everything going on, I'm keeping my list short. I'm still hoping to make more progress with the Halloween Bingo, so all the books are from my Bingo list. I've chosen three of the shortest works on my list and an audio book. If I don't get any reading done, I'm planning to do some cheering in between napping.

Death Note, Vol. 1: Boredom

Death Note デスノート transcends the manga medium. The graphics are gorgeously drawn, and the story is powerful, climactic and maddening. It's the definitive hard-boiled mystery and a true classic of the century.

I first read this awesome デスノート manga series over 10 years ago I was still in my teens. I greedily absorbed myself in the vivid, suspenseful story over the next few years and even dreamed about being L エル a few times. I could never forget the excitement I felt when I lined up to see the Tokyo premiere of the film adaption in the summer of 2006.

Re-reading them recently opened a floodgate of memories and nostalgia... Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. デスノート drew me in years ago, and it still does.

For me, these manga novels are part of my adolescence and my coming-of-age. They are part of me.

image

デスノート will always be my favourite manga of all time, and エル will always be my favorite detective. It's one of those books that once you've read you will never forget and your life will never be the same.
