Review quote

" ...It's also highly possible that by the end of it, tears will be running from your eyes. I would recommend it to everybody, the story is beautiful, the characters deep and the art amazing." - The Reading Armchair " By adapting Les Miserables to manga form, it opens the original story up to even more readers while remaining true to the heart of Victor Hugo's novel with the complexities of right and wrong, justice, and human nature. " - GetGraphic.org "I have such a love/hate relationship with Les Mis. I would love to love it, but I just don't. until now...So, I HIGHLY recommend this Manga, I'm a changed person now when it comes to Les Mis." Five Stars! GoodReads.com "This is a really well presented version and the drama and life at the heart of this classic is clearly seen in the drawings. There are also helpful notes at the back of the book explaining how this version of the story was produced." - Five Stars! Amazon.com

About Victor Hugo

Victor Marie Hugo was a French poet, novelist, and dramatist of the Romantic movement. He is considered one of the greatest and best-known French writers. Outside France, his best-known works are the novels Les Mis rables, and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. Crystal S. Chan is an award-winning author and television screen play writer. She holds a degree in language and literature. Crystal is a huge fan of authors such as Jane Austen and she is equally passionate about Sailor Moon. Her passion for classic literature combined with her love of the comics medium allows her to strike a solid balance between preserving the depth of the original content while adapting the language for a younger generation. Sunneko Lee is a talented artist who works in two worlds: comics, and animation. At an early age she made her professional debut as a comic strip artist before moving to character design and story board artist. Sunneko work for the Manga Classics project allows her to celebrate her passion for the comic arts. Lee's artist alias, Sunneko, combines her love of cats and the warmth of the sun (Neko is cat in Japanese).

Our customer reviews

I received an eARC copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. Here is my honest review. I've seen the play/musical production of Les Miserables so when I saw a graphic novel adaptation I wanted to visit the story again. It is enjoyable to read and I think my rating would be higher if I had had a print copy to review rather than a digital copy. It was difficult at times to read given the size constraints. I would see this as a quick way to cover a great piece of literature in an English class. It would definitely appeal to students who do not consider reading or literature to be pursuits that they especially enjoy. Some may feel that it is a disservice to a classic piece of literature. I believe that as teachers, we should honor all forms of the written word and encourage kids to read what they will find enjoyable. When kids enjoy reading, they read more. The more they read, the better their vocabulary and ability to relate to a wide variety of experiences.show more
