I've been hearing about it and it sounds really great. Anyone here have any opinions they would like to share?

Thanks Cth...I did a search but too much unrelated stuff came up.

Its a pretty f-ing brilliant series.

Personally, I thought it started strong, but it got a bit tedious after a while. I eventually stopped caring about the characters as much as I did at the beginning of the series, and just got bored with it.

Got the first volume a while ago. I think it's much too exposition heavy in the beginning, but once the rules of the death-dealing note book are fully explained, it really is a great study in suspense.

I'm a new reader, and the first three volumes are pretty engrossing. Definitely lives up to the praise.

I'm told it dips around volume 6 or 7, but picks up again shortly after.

Not a fan.

If I wasn't sold already...that surely did it. Thanks Nick.

:lol:


I didn't mean to be abrupt, I was being lazy and trying to find a post where I'd commented on it before. Sorry bout that.



I just found it quite unengaging. The characters don't seem to have much character to me, for example. Maybe it improves after V1, but I didn't get past there.
