Book Club’s new selection is an adventure into a new format of a novel called Manga. It is a graphic novel and is unique because it is read from the back to the front and from left to right on each page. The title is Death Note: Volume 1by Tsugumi Ohba.
I have been told that it is a story driven novel, not a battle driven novel. It is about Light Yagami, an ace student with great prospects and he is bored out of his mind! That all changes when he finds a notebook that has been dropped by a rogue Shinigami Death God. Any name that is written in the notebook dies, and now Light has vowed to use the power of the Death Note to rid the world of evil. When criminal begin to drop dead, the authorities send legendary detective L to track down the killer. With L hot on his heels, will Light lose sight of his noble goal…. or his life?
Read on for a thrilling adventure.
