Manga Classics: Emma - Po Tse, Jane Austen, Luke Mehall;Gaelen Engler;Drew Thayer;Ashley King;Stacy Bare;Chris Barlow;Erica Lineberry;Brendan  Leonard;Teresa Bruffey;D. Scott Borden, Crystal Chan

I was delighted to see there was a new Manga Classic on Netgalley, after I read several others already (Les MiserablesThe Scarlet Letter and Pride & Prejudice). I'd never read the original Emma so I didn't know what the story was going to be about and I can't judge if the manga represents the story well.


Overall, it was a very fast and light read that did remind me of Pride & Prejudice. It's not completely my cup of tea, but since it's such an easy read this didn't bother me. I liked it just as I liked the other Manga Classics, and like with the others, I wanted to read the original work afterwards. I know I've said it before, but these books are a great way to introduce people to classics they may otherwise have not read.


Although the style and story worked together well during the biggest part of the book, there were some instances where there was an info dump in a few pages that were basically just an exposition text.


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
