QBD Reviews: Death Note by Tsugumi Ohba & Taskeshi Obata

Death Note is a manga that is full of suspense, action, intelligence and wit. It follows the story of university student, Light Yagami, a brilliant boy who is well on his way to becoming very successful when he finds a note book, called a Death Note. A Death Note is a book owned by a Shinigami, or God of Death, and it has the power to kill anyone whose name is written inside. Struck with a vision of the perfect future, Light believes he can make the world a better place. A place where those who do wrong are punished. However, that is not as easy and simple as it sounds and Light soon becomes power hungry and ambitious enough to try and make himself a God. Every God needs an enemy and, in Death Note, the role falls to the brilliant, incredible and slightly insane, L.

I absolutely love Death Note. It held so much suspense, action, intelligence and wit. The plot was really well thought out, really intricate. My favourite character is L, purely because he is so smart, yet so insane. I definitely recommend Death Note to anyone who wants a fast paced, engaging and absolutely suspenseful read.
