I read this book the other day when I had nothing else to do at a bookstore. I saw a death note novel and got interested in reading it. I am so glad i did, because this novel was AWESOME. *Spoiler alert (but just a teeny weeny bit)* This is my first review so dont hate on me.

Lets start with the story. It is an alternate universe where L is still alive after the kira incident, and Watari is dead. The book summarizes the last 23 days of L's life on earth. In those last days, he comes across one final mission: to take care read more

"L change the world" novel is an alternative ending to Death Note: L wrote his own name in the Death Note trying to avoid Light to make this step first. L knew that Light won't mention the cause of death nor will pick a specific time for his death, so eventually the detective will die from a heart attack in 40 seconds. Thus L has only 23 days to live and 22 days to save the world, stopping a bioterrorism group that's ready to wipe out... well, most of humanity.

At the beginning of the story L is the same cold detective who never allows emotions read more

This is the book that I chose for my summer book report assignment. This is an alternate ending for L. But I love this ending.
The story is well linked with Death Note, the personality of L is thoroughly and clearly shown. Oh yes, the story is well plotted and amusing. Obviously, this is not the work of an amateur.
Haha, sorry for my poor organisation , I got so many ideas in my mind. Yes, the last scene, it impresses me the most .When L dials to US president, the threat that he made -- to secure the future of children or else he will read more

I had heard nothing about this book, and I only knew that it was a movie, and likewise heard nothing about it, no feedback, no opinions, no nothing. I wasn't really into the live-action movies too much, but when I saw the book on the shelf, I was like, "Wait...this is a novel, too?" So I bought it and I'm actually thankful I did. I think I ended up liking this better than the other Death Note novel I read (The Los Angeles BB Serial Murder Cases), because it was an easier story to follow, despite the fact that I hadn't seen any of the read more
