It is still a very good example for a few things that were bothereing me in this Novel too, actually even led me to the question whether Chibaki/original Misaki might be faking the pehnomenon. Namely the fact that S******* Mu**** is imho a very good example that both witnesses and culprits are allowed to twist the truth to their bidding as long as there are clues to the contrary.

Its just too bad that there is no official english translation for Another... Well hopefully once will come with Another 2....
Spoiler for Which Christie novel:

I agree 100%. We not only had a distraction (not talking about her twin tails) but another female character to balance out the group.

I think the changes made were for good reason and I don't see anything wrong with them. I would enjoy reading the novel one day, too.

Still, if this was romance, Izumi will be a Tsundere of the more "believable" type. Which is refreshing

Yen Press announced that it has licensed the novel for e-books exclusive publication. Depending on the e-books sale, YP will later consider publishing the novel in paper. [Source 1][Source 2]

I'm excited by this news on two fronts -- not only becuase I'll finally be able to read the book, but also because Yen hasn't announced any new novels in a while and I was getting worried they might get out of the market once they finish up with Haruhi, Kieli, Book Girl and Spice & Wolf.

Just a reminder that volume 1 of Yen Press' translation of the novel is scheduled for digital release this month. (Both Amazon and Barnes & Noble are listing a March 19 release date.) At the moment, Yen Press still does not plan a print release, digital only across multiple platforms.

About halfway through, and all I can say is I really wish I could turn off my memory of the anime. As it is, just about every page has me thinking, "Oh, well that's a major clue now isn't it?"

I finished part 1 and had a very similar reaction. Things that I would have glossed over if I hadn't watched the anime took on very different meanings.

I look forward to part 2. My understanding is that the anime diverged from the novel there at the end. I'm curious to read how the original played out.
