Manga Classics: Emma

23332879From Goodreads:    Just in time for the 200th Anniversary, Manga Classics: Emma brings Jane Austen's classic tale of youthful folly and romantic exuberance to a modern audience with this beautiful, new manga adaptation. The impulsive match-making of Emma Woodhouse delivers both humor and heartache through the gorgeous artwork of manga-ka Po Tse (Manga Classics: Pride and Prejudice). - Manga Classics editions feature classic stories, faithfully adapted and illustrated in manga style, and available in both hardcover and softcover editions. Proudly presented by UDON Entertainment and Morpheus Publishing.



My Thoughts:

-    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this series!! I devoured this book! I couldn't get enough.

-    The artwork is beautiful! I loved it. The character designs were great!

-    This was a great adaptation from the original book. All the emotions and events were captured so perfectly.

-    This used to be my favorite Austen book before I read Persuasion, but after reading this I think it climbed back up to tie as favorite again. I just love Mr. Knightley! I hope they adapt Persuasion into a manga. That would be AWESOME!

-    I really enjoyed reading the notes at the end of the book. I loved reading about the challenges of adapting the story into a manga. I liked how they talked about Emma being a mystery story as well as a romance story. It was very interesting.

-    I loved the character sketches/development pages between chapters. They were fun to look at.

-    I loved this book! I highly recommend it to everyone, especially Austen fans!

  1. I haven't read Emma yet. I want to eventually, but I'm classicked out this year. I'm glad you enjoyed this, though.

    1. I understand getting classicked out. Even one classic can be a lot. I hope you read Emma next though. I love it!
