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 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.
