Review quote

"This adaptation retains all of the charm and fun of the characters and situations, and is a great way to expose those without the time or inclination to pick up the novel. I can't think of a better way to experience this story other than reading the original novel." School Library Journal "P&P is an overly dramatic, incredibly silly romance with much miscommunication and swooning. It's a perfect shojo story though and transforms into manga very well. This is a great starter for kids or someone who wants to know the story. Or, like me, one who likes to experience the classics in all formats. " - Four Stars! Library Thing.com

About Jane Austen

Jane Austen was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen's plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favorable social standing and economic security. Austen's use of biting irony, along with her realism and social commentary have earned her great and historical importance to critics and scholars. Stacy King is an editor for Manga Classics, a critically-acclaimed line of modern adaptations of literary classics in a manga format. In addition to her editorial duties, she has also written the adaptations for PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, SENSE AND SENSIBILITY, the upcoming THE STORIES OF EDGAR ALLEN POE and DRACULA, along with creating the English-language scripts for other books in the line. She holds an Honors B.A. from the University of Toronto, where she specialized in English Literature. When not immersed in a book, she enjoys historical costuming and obsessing about cats. Po Tse is a veteran in the comic-activists community. His uncanny talent of drawing authentic shoujo style as a male artist has made him a rare breed among his peers. Also known as Lemon Po to his followers and friends, Po's drawing style is inspired by classic manga artists of the 80's. Aside from being a shoujo comic artist, Po is a domestic husband who enjoys making desserts to delight his friends and family.

Our customer reviews

I received an eARC copy of this book from the publisher. Here is my honest review. I recall enjoying Archie comics when I was a kid but as a teen and then into adulthood, comics and graphic novels have not been a genre that I was drawn to. Perhaps it was the subject matter that tended to be more dark and violent. Despite my earlier hesitations, I requested this adaptation along with the Les Miserables Manga adaptations by Udon Entertainment. I am so happy that I did! The adaptation of Pride and Prejudice by Stacy King and Po Tse is beautifully done! The illustrations are gorgeous; Regency fashion is one of my favorite elements from the period and I adored seeing them portrayed so beautifully and accurately. The text is also well done and flows nicely along. There are some parts that seem so true to the writing style and language of Austen. At the same time, there were a few times where it seemed the speech was much more modern, a choice that will make this text appealing to younger readers who may hesitate to delve into a classic.show more

I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review I absolutely loved this! It is such a cute and enjoyable read that I can't image anyone not liking it. P&P is one of my all-time favorite book - if not THE favorite and this graphic novel/manga is almost true to the story. Some parts are left out and others are put together to make it easier to understand. Even though it's not a 100% true to the story it's so close that I think every Austenite will like it. I really liked the illustrations as well and I loved that there were pages with labels for the characters so we knew which were which instead of having to guess. I feared that I wouldn't enjoy it since it's manga and the characters are therefore drawn like regular mangas, but I actually really liked that part. It gave the classic this modern twist that I really enjoyed. I will probably have to buy an edition of this just so I can look at it everyday, I absolutely love it. I can totally imagine pupils reading this for class assignments or things alike. I love how this can be read for pleasure and in school. I definitely recommend this.show more
