To be totally honest, I wasn't expecting to enjoy these books as much as I did. I guess I just wasn't sure WHY I was reading these ones, if that makes sense. The Hiden light novels felt like they had more of a purpose. (At least at the time I was reading them, they hadn't been animated yet.) Those ones took place in the future from the series, gave us a sense of what happened between the time of Naruto's end and Boruto's beginning. The Shinden novels (the first two, anyway) are different.

We already saw Itachi's story. Well, I'm sure a lot of people read more

After reading all three books, I can only recommend the first two. Not that Sasuke Shinden was bad, but in terms of how much it adds to the Naruto franchise, it came off as fluff that wasn't needed. Only look into that one if you're a huge Sasuke fan.

With that being said, this review will primarily be aimed at Itachi's two Shinden novels, which were quite enjoyable overall and something I didn't know I needed until reading them.

These novels allow for us to delve into Itachi's head. We're given explanations for his actions in the actual manga, but these books humanize him more and read more

sasuke's book wasn't necessary. itachi's books were amazing and gave a new insight into his backstory and really fleshed out his characters inner turmoil much more than in the anime. the English translation had a few doubled words and misspellings but it didn't take anything away from how good it was.

the books looked into alot morethan i thought they would and they changed my opinion on the tsukiyomi. the book made me realise that it is probably not a good thing to have happen to the world while during the anime i was confused as to why people opposed it so much
