4.0 out of 5 stars Fluff, as usual, March 6, 2006
This review is from: Gravitation (v. 1) (Paperback)
I love Gravitation, and I was excited to hear that a novel was coming out. I was hoping for, perhaps, a fuller plotline with more insight into the characters and their relationships - specifically that of the leading couple, Shuichi and Yuki.

I was a bit disappointed, however, when it turned out that the novel is really nothing more than one of the typical manga storylines...except in text-form - complete with the unbelievable and bipolar actions and attitudes of the cast. Shuichi would angst over a specific development in one scene, but then forget it in the next chapter. A barrier would be set in their path, but it would be overcome with a nonsensical and fantasy-style plot device. In fact, I think this entire novel would have been more acceptable if it WAS in manga form, as the cartoon-esque descriptions might be a bit hard to digest for someone who isn't used to seeing it in action within the manga.

All in all, however, it was a typical day in the lives of the Gravitation crew, and it's an easy enough book to breeze through that it shouldn't take more than a couple of hours to read. Recommended for any fan.
