Another Note: The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases
By Tsugumi Ohba
My Summary of the book:
Another Note: The Los Angeles BB Murder Cases follows a young woman named Naomi Misora ,who is a suspended FBI agent, as she looks into the BB Murder Cases. She is contacted by one of the worlds most famous and secretive detectives name L who sends her on a mission to catch the killer known as Beyond or B. Along the way she meets a very unusual person named Rue Ryuzaki. Together the two have to figure out who the killer is and stop him before he claims another life.
When I read this book I was quiet surprised. I had heard it was a spin-off from a series of books called Death Note and even though I had never read those books before I got it any ways. It had a few characters from the other books but, the characters where so well described and explained I knew exactly who they were and their purpose in the story. Another thing that surprised me about this book was the characters. Each and every one of them was unique. In most stories you can easily compare the characters to other characters in different books. Not with these. The characters were very original and even though they were very eccentric I could imagine them in really life. The book also had a well thought out plot that often left me re-reading parts because it would get so complicated. In most books like this there is always a twist. This one is no different but, when I read these kind of books I can guess the killer easily. Not this time. The killer was completely unexpected to me and it was extremely shocking. The mood of the story is also very odd. Through most of the story the mood is dark and kind of depressing but, suddenly something would happen that would literally make me laugh out loud.
This book is probably one of my favorite books because of its eccentric character and amazing plot twists that keep you guessing until the very end. I would recommend this book to any one that loves horror or crime and mystery, even if you have never read or heard of the Death Note series. The only true problem I had is a few things were never explained.
My Rating of This Book: 4.1 out of 5
