Compared to the first Gravitation novel offering, Voice of Temptation holds up pretty well. Eiri is actually in this one, at least. The story is also a lot more interesting this time around.

Shuichi is leaving on Bad Luck's first national tour, and Yuki is being aloof as usual. Two weeks into the tour Shuichi goes home to spend a night alone with Yuki, but finds the novelist missing and a mysterious note and some bad intelligence from various sources lead Shuichi around Osaka in search of his lover. Misunderstandings and hijinks ensue.

Nothing about this book is surprising. There are a few funny moments and all the characterizations are true to the original manga, but one is left wanting the visual medium and finding the written word lacking. Gravitation is meant to be enjoyed by being seen and novels, no matter how well written, are invariably going to fall short. It's not that Jun Lennon does a bad job. She (assuming it is a woman) is obviously a talented writer, and her work in screenwriting shines in this novel in the accurate and detailed descriptions of the gang's zany antics.

For those who are hoping for some more graphic depictions of Shuichi and Eiri's "love," this volume has a better offering than the last one and one suggestive illustration near the end of the book, but nothing really graphic. So, if you're interested in "yaoi" content, you will be sorely disappointed.

For die-hard Gravi fans, reading this one is quite a bit more worthwhile than reading the first novel was, though I wouldn't recommend spending your hard-earned money on it if you are not devoted to the series.

I love Gravitation. I own all twelve books and all five DVDs, and when I saw this was coming out, I was thrilled. But not even two chapters into this book, I started to wonder if it was too late to take it back, but I continued. The writing is good, the character's are true to themselves, but it is nothing new. While I love the originals, I believe they are trying to pump water from a dry well. A 3 for the effort and staying true, but I need something new. So if you want some new developement out of this, maybe borrow it from a friend and save your money, if you just want more of the same concept, go for it, to each his own.

Well, even when Shuichi is finally living with his love-object, his desire to stalk & humiliate his older, taller lover never subside. Unfortunately, there are things that work in manga that don't work well in novels, & that's trying to make Shuichi's obsession seem funny instead of annoying. You may find yourself pittying Yuki rather than rooting on Shuichi. You'll pitty his friends. The comedy part just doesn't seem to work without constant images.

If you are a gravitation fan and have read the manga and seen the anime, then you know what to expect from the characters. This book had a slightly different feel to it in comparison to the show and manga but it was still good.
