Read Death Note, Vol. 5: Whiteout (Death Note, #5) Online Free - 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.

Ohhhh this took a hugely different turn from the first 4 books. Not that I'm SAD or anything? Just surprised, really. Kira's power is in the hands of evil companies...and this just makes me a little less invested because I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE COMPANIES. When it was just completely Light vs "L" I...

Eh. This seemed to suddenly change directions and now nothing is like it was? The original premise and conflict that were so interesting seem to have been thrown to the side in exchange for these corrupt businessmen?
And will Misa ever do anything that doesn't revolve around Light??
What ever happe...

Still really great. This one has a lot of build-up for what will be going down in the next volume. I am so pumped for it!

The plot, the character development, the execution are still perfect, but I have to admit I liked the original concept way better. I miss the Light-going-up-against-L-in-epic-fight-of-wits.
I don't care for the new characters that have been introduced and consequently I'm nowhere near as invested...

Another flawless instalment. The humour, though short-lived and rare, was scintillating as always.
Ohba never fails to impress. Alas, it may be some time before I can return to the Kira Investigation. There seems to be an endless influx of trivial books that have taken a liking to butting themselv...

That twist... But hey, Light is cuter when not being Kira))))

I definitely liked this one more than the last volume, but I really missed Light's personality. The event that took place just took away a big part of what I love about Death Note and I felt a bit disconnected from the story because of it.
I have Volume 6 ready to read but I'm sad, the s...

Only three stars for this volume because I think Light's voluntary memory wipe is a total cop-out...although to be honest, I didn't see many other ways to extend the plot without putting Light-as-Kira to rest for awhile and transferring the power to kill to another character.
Otherwise, the series...
