    It was a little bit strange to read a manga written in Shakespeare's English, but still, if you want to read a good story or if you want your kid to read Macbeth without complaining, this seems to me a good compromise.. Era un po' strano leggere un manga nell'inglese di Shakespeare,...

    Another good manga classic. It was a bit hard for me to follow the Old English, but the art was as good as all the others. ...

    I received a copy of Manga Classics: Macbeth in exchange for a fair and honest review. I know I?ve said this time and time again, but I sincerely adore the concept behind Manga Classics. I love that it gives me a new perspective on many of the classics I know and love. And for t...

    A new approach to an old classic that breathes life into a good story. This Macbeth interpretation is a great place for younger readers to start to learn and understand some of Shakespeare's more difficult dialogue. Recommended for Manga fans, young readers, and fans of retellings for ...

    First things first: I received this book through NetGalley I don't know how to rate this. I don't completely hate it, but I didn't love it either. I liked the story but at the same time, didn't care for it at all. I'm just really meh about the whole thing. I just really don't car...

    I received my copy of Macbeth from the publisher, Udon Entertainment, through NetGalley. It's no secret that I really like the Manga Classics series. Chan and artist Julien Choy did a great job with Romeo & Juliet and The Jungle Book, and now they've done great work again in thi...

    Another brilliant re-edition of a great work of literature, Macbeth manga stays true to the original play. Accompanied by beautiful and inventive illustrations, it is difficult not to love this edition. Strongly recommended to fans of mangas, but also to fans of Shakespeare. ...

    I generally enjoy the Manga Classics line, so I was eager to see their take on Macbeth, my favorite Shakespeare play. Unfortunately, even Macbeth cannot survive the casting of Jon Bon Jovi's 1980s giant hair in the lead role. I mean, that crown perched awkwardly atop the head on the co...

    One more incredible manga rendition of a great classic, a Shakesperean tragedy of epic proportion that still addresses raw human emotions like greed, ambition, regret, loyalty. Macbeth's rise to power and following downfall are depicted in powerful strokes and the text is true to the o...

    This is my first contact with Shakespeare and I had a bit of a hard time with it. This is my third manga classic and my least favorite, only because I couldn't get into the shakesperean writing style. The artwork is still gorgeous and it helps a lot to see what's going on. Just not a...

    Received from NetGalley Macbeth is one of my favorite play from Shakespeare, it's full of deception and intrigue and very intense. I love reading Shakespear's plays in this form. It adds a whole another dimension to the story and makes it come alive. Macbeth is such a good play,...

    If it weren't for the imagery, I would have no idea what was going on in this book. This book really is a classic adaptation to read in a class room setting, where you can dissect each and every line so you understand the story better. I wouldn't read this as a casual classic read a...

    I think this is a great title that will prove beneficial for kids struggling to grasp works by Shakespeare. The visuals allow a better understanding and increase the interest for kids who don't care for classics. The only negative is, and it was the same with the Romeo and Juliet adapt...

    This has been a great read for me and might very well be for others! This manga still conveys just about the whole story of Macbeth but with the illustrations it really can suck you in and keep you both engaged and entertained at times. Highly recommended for those who would like to tr...
