If I messed up even one time... If I left even one clue to my identity, I'm finished. Just one clue...

Mass murder has rarely been so much fun. (This set of episodes really drives home the fact that Light really is a stone hearted killer.) The contest between Light and L is fantastic. Who am I cheering on? Do I even know? (Is it too much to put my hat in the ring for Naomi? Come on, Naomi!) Light's interactions with his family are exquisite, and his father's agony really makes this whole volume shine. And still no more information on our resident god of death... Curioser and curioser. On to volume 3, and further down this delightful rabbit hole I go. ( )

Good second volume of the series. L and the task force still looking for Kira. Kira's also run into the fiance of one of the dead FBI agents - interesting - and the task force has started some heavy duty round the clock monitoring of possible suspects.

Will eventually move on to volume 3. . . . ( )

When I first read this volume several years ago, I was literally biting my nails from the exictement of changing each page to discover what happened next. Perhaps some of the excitement with this reread is abated, but this particular chapter is still fabulous.

Gettin to grips that Light has attracted the interest of the world's best detective only known as "L", he must take advantage of hacking into his father's detective police reports of the Kira case to remain one step ahead to evade capture, while also learning how to bend the rules of the Death Note to kill criminals at any given hour of the day to deter suspicions about his identity as a highschool student.

Things get trickier when the FBi brings some agents and Raye Penber is keeping a close eye on Light. He will have to pull the cleverest stunt in the whole story to defeat this well-meaning but gullible cop before L corners him to a wall.

The first volumes are definitely the best of the series, and well worth your time. ( )

So, so good. It's like Holmes and Moriarty in its cat-and-mouse afooting. ( )

I actually liked this volume more than the first one. The storyline was easier to keep straight and seeing the chase unfold was a lot of fun. ( )
