Manga Classics: Pride & Prejudice by Stacy King (Story Adaptation), Po Tse (Art ) & Jane Austen (Original Story)
My Rating: 4 Stars
I'm a very fan of Jane Austen and all her novels. When I found this title, I decided to take a chance since it's not every day that you find a classic from the 19th century drawn in Manga. And I most say, it was very worth it.
The plot of Pride and Prejudice is well known. The story is centred about the second-eldest daughter of a low-class family, Elizabeth in a world where women must marry since they can't heritage their father's fortune. Elizabeth will face love, hatred, lies and the hypocrisy that marks the 19th century English society.
I absolutely fell in love with the drawings. They are very expressive and it's simply beautiful to read. Of course, the story is an adaptation of the original, the characters interact and talk more and I even got to see Mr Darcy embarrassed which was very out-of-character but still very amusing. Even so, I think the adaptation was well made and the flow of story doesn't change at all.
A very pleasant read!
Hope you find an idea for your next reading here.
