Today I’m reviewing Manga Classics: Pride & Prejudice edited by Stacy King, Illustrations by Po Tse and based upon the original novel by Jane Austen.
Summary from Goodreads: Beloved by millions the world over, Pride & Prejudice is delightfully transformed in this bold, new manga adaptation. All of the joy, heartache, and romance of Jane Austen's original, perfectly illuminated by the sumptuous art of manga-ka Po Tse, and faithfully adapted by Stacy E. King.
More after the jump!
Review: Pride and Prejudice is such a good story and has so many fans I cannot imagine the stress of creating a graphic novel/manga version of the tale. However, it is very well done and might be a good way to introduce the story to younger kids or those who struggle to remain interested in historical fiction. The artwork is lovely and reminds me of the style of the Ouran Host School Club Anime, which I mean as a compliment. I would definitely recommend this book.
Rating: 4/5 Stars
