Ok… I admit it… It was really difficult for me to adjust to the whole “backwards” reading thing. I started off reading at the back of the book and still managed to forget that I had to read from right to left across each page. Yeah, I know. But, anyway. Once I went through my “duh!” moment, I started the book over again and everything made much more sense. The idea of a “deathnote” was a really cool concept, and the illustrations were really cool too. Though the format made me feel a little stupid, I think I may end up reading some more manga in the future. If you haven’t tried it yet, this story is interesting enough to definitely make the extra work worthwhile!
