Manga Classics: Les Miserables

21433251From Goodreads:    Adapted for stage and screen, loved by millions, Victor Hugo's classic novel of love and tragedy set in 19th century France is reborn in this fantastic new manga edition!

Gorgeous and expressive art brigns to life the unforgettable stories of Jean Valjean, Inspector Javert, and the tragic Fantine in this epic adaptation of Les Misérables!

My Thoughts:

-    I've been struggling with my reading lately. I'm still reading, but I don't seem to be enjoying anything I've read. When in a slump, I usually read more graphic novels to get me through, but even those have been disappointing. But I FINALLY found something AMAZING! 

-    I enjoyed Manga Classics: Pride and Prejudice immensely! This was no different! I devoured this book in one day. I couldn't stop reading. I have always loved this classic tale, and it is fantastic in any adaptation. As a manga, I was plunged into ecstasy!

-    Les Miserables always gives me chills, and it almost always brings me to tears. I love the each character's story, and I love the overall theme of redemption. Every character pulls at my heartstrings! 

-    The artwork was SO good! I loved the portrayal of all the characters. The panel layouts were great. 

-    I loved reading the Author's Note about adapting the book into a manga. There were some great insights on the process. 

-    I can't wait to read more Manga Classics!! They are my new favorites!


  1. Yay! I'm glad you're finding these. I've noticed you've been in a bit of a slump was hoping this one would rescue you.

  2. I'm glad you liked this one just as much as the P&P one. I need to read the original Les Mis before I read this one. Someday.
