Death Note: Whiteout

Death Note, Vol. 5: Whiteout (Death Note, #5)Goodreads Synopsis:    Light Yagami is an ace student with great prospects - and he's bored out of his mind. But all that changes when he finds the Death Note, a notebook dropped by a rogue Shinigami death god. Any human whose name is written in the notebook dies, and now Light has vowed to use the power of the Death Note to rid the world of evil. But when criminals begin dropping dead, the authorities send the legendary detective L to track down the killer. With L hot on his heels, will Light lose sight of his noble goal...or his life?

After a week locked up with no one but Ryuk for company, Light is ready to give up his Death Note and all memories of it. Freed from his past actions, Light is convinced he's innocent. But L is ready to keep Light under lock and key forever, especially since the killings stopped once Light was incarcerated. Then a new wave of Kira crimes hits Japan. Someone else has gotten their hands on a Death Note, and these new deaths aren't focused on making the world a better place, they're focused on making money. Big business can be murder, and Kira has gone corporate.

My Thoughts:

-    The series has taken a nose dive, and not an exciting one like planes do, but a stupid one.

-    The tension and suspense that made me crave this series has died!

-    I'm so sad.  My brother warned me that it started off amazing and got dumb halfway through.  I should have listened!

-    L brings in 2 new associates, and I'm excited to learn more about them and see their skills. 

-    Matsuda is an idiot!

-    I like the chief a lot.  He is like an older Captain America, but for Japan.

-    I still think Light and Misa should be punished for their crimes!

-    Misa is still annoying.
