I've been reading quite a lot of Manga Classics lately, but unfortunately this is for now the last in the series. Let me start by saying I hope there will be more soon because I liked this one and also the other I've read (Les Miserables, The Scarlet Letter, Emma and Pride & Prejudice).
The story is so well know that I don't think I need to discuss it. Instead, I'd like to say that although I haven't read the book I kind of knew the story from a BBC adaptation I watched a few years ago and I think it followed the story quite well (for as far as I can remember). It's only obvious that some details get lost when the story gets adapted into a 300 page manga.
I don't think this is necessarily a problem, since it's a great introduction or refresher in my opinion. It's not a substitute for reading the classics but an addition I like to read. This manga (as well as the others) have made me want to read the originals that I hadn't read already. I don't think I'll be the only one who feels this way.
Hope there's another one soon and can't wait to find out which classic is next!
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
