    My very first manga!!! ...and if I've gotta start somewhere, why not start with one of my favorite classics ? While Manga Classics: Pride & Prejudice isn't a word-for-word adaptation of the original, it's close enough and the art keeps the visual senses stimulated while devo...

    A beautiful adaptation of the classic we all know and love. It is not a faithful adaptation, but a retelling in comic that gives it a humorous spin and will make you yearn to read the book or watch your favorite adaptation. I really loved the art, I didn't expect them to be so mang...

    This book made me so happy. I didn?t even know it existed before a few days ago. I started reading it today, and three hours later, I finished it. It?s just so fantastic! It has all the charm and wit and elegance of Jane Austen?s Pride and Prejudice, but then it has humor and a s...

    This was a great experience, it was my first manga classic and to be honest, I didn?t really know what to expect, but it was awesome and I had a lot of pleasure reading it. The adaptation wasn?t a 100% copy of the novel, I?ll give you that but only minor changes were brought a...

    My 9-year-old has introduced me to graphic novels, and a Goodreads friend has more recently introduced me to Manga novels. Turns out "Manga" isn't a tropical fruit, but a Japanese-inspired comic book. I would describe them as graphic novels that contain characters that look part-zom...

    *I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review* These illustrations are absolutely lovely. I love how they manage to convey at the same time both an idea of refinement and a delicious, smart humour. If Austen's chiselled, brisk, lively writin...

    "You are not the last man I could ever marry, but the only one. Indeed, I am ashamed of what I said then, for I was more wrong than I have ever been in all my life." "Then do me the honour of becoming my wife!" Experience the classic Austen tale like never before! I am a devote...

    I cannot count the number of times I have watched Pride and Prejudice (Keira Knightley's version, of course). It was one of those movies that used to arise comments of the kind: "Oh no, not that again!". I loved the movie so much I tried to read the book. I barely read 30 pa...

    DNF. The historical inaccuracies drove me nuts - examples of such include Bingley walking into the bedroom where Jane is ill, despite the fact that no man but a doctor or husband would enter a woman's bedroom, immediate usage of first names - Darcy calling Elizabeth by her first name t...

    I confess that I still haven't read the novel Pride and Prejudice, but I've already watched the movie version of it. Just like the other classic books, Pride and Prejudice is quite long to read and I must devote a lot of time to be able to finish it. But thanks to this graphic nove...

    3.5 stars I'm a Jane Austen fan. I like the original stories, I like the retellings, so I couldn't miss with the manga. The art is beautiful, as with most manga, but Elizabeth's hair was a bit too puffy. I'm biased because of all the Pride & Prejudice movie adaptations I'...

    I enjoyed this manga, although you could tell it was written for a younger audience, as the language was simpler and the story was slightly different. I recommend it if you?d like to read Pride and Prejudice but either don?t have much time, or much interest in reading the classic (...

    *4.5 stars* The idea of making manga adaptations of classics is simply genious and I literally can?t wait to see if Little Women will be made in a manga as well for it is my second favourite classic after Pride and Prejudice. Now this adaptation wasn?t perfect or one hundred ...

    Manga?? Seriously?? Oh, yes... I?ve never read any manga before ? in truth, I wasn?t at all sure what it really is other than being some form of graphic novel, but honestly! Look at the cover! How could I possibly resist? Once I?d worked out that you have to read this fro...

    When I heard we were doing catch-up week, I thought why not and picked the most irrelevant book I could find... So I got this ARC of Pride and Prejudice, everybody's favourite book, and it was less thrilling than I expected. Nevertheless, this is quite a solid adaptation and I ...

    I received an e-copy of this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review! You may be shocked to hear that I have never read Pride and Prejudice or even seen any of the movies or the mini series, so I was going into this knowing absolutely nothing about the story itself, and this...

    It is no secret that 'Pride & Prejudice' is one of my old time favorites so once I saw adapted Manga in netgalley, I cannot not request it and I'm glad I've been accepted. The cover and art is gorgeous! Even black & white images as well - I wish I can keep t...

    This was a fun read, although definitely both simplified certain parts of the plot (and also dramatised it in a hilariously cringe worthy way at times!) It was nice to read this as a whole from start to finish in such a short period time, after having read Pride and Prejudice for so lo...

    What a read! A classic tale adorned with beautiful artwork! I absolutely loved this Manga Classic. The storytelling was good. The characters' faces showed really good expressions. I could see when they were happy, sad or angry. Jane and Darcy were drawn beautifully. It was good...

    Take your pick. You either like the manga or you didn?t. I?m on the dislike side. I believe this is a parody of Pride and Prejudice more than it is an adaption. There are a few parts which are funny and others which are annoying. I found myself wincing more times than I can c...
