books, knitting, food and whatever else I want to write about

I read this book awhile back, but I wanted to share it. It’s a fun manga rendition of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I enjoy graphic novels and have read a bit of manga in the past, but I haven’t sought it out. I saw this book had a lot of good ratings.

Manga is known for is humor as well and there are just a few off hand side moments that are not in canon in this novel. They work rather well. Pride and Prejudice does have silly aspects to it and the manga form plays it up. The adaptation is not over the top though and it captures all the important moments from the novel.

This manga is definitely worth the look if you like Pride and Prejudice with some visuals.

One thought on “Manga Classics: Pride & Prejudice

  1. I might have to check this out. I’m not as familiar with manga as I am with general graphic novels, but this one could be particularly interesting given my love of Austen. I know they’ve done other classic adaptations recently so I can’t wait to see where those go too!
