Manga Classics: Emma by Jane Austen, Stacy King etc. (Mini Review)

*I was provided with a e-book of this book by the publisher via NetGalley, but my review is all my own opinion and thoughts* 

Manga Classics by Stacy King

“Just in time for the 200th Anniversary, Manga Classics: Emma brings Jane Austen’s classic tale of youthful folly and romantic exuberance to a modern audience with this beautiful, new manga adaptation. The impulsive match-making of Emma Woodhouse delivers both humor and heartache through the gorgeous artwork of manga-ka Po Tse (Manga Classics: Pride and Prejudice). – Manga Classics editions feature classic stories, faithfully adapted and illustrated in manga style, and available in both hardcover and softcover editions. Proudly presented by UDON Entertainment and Morpheus Publishing.”

I enjoyed reading this. Emma is one of my favorite novels from Jane Austen, so there wasn’t much this manga could do wrong. And it was all I would have expected from a manga, to be honest. The characters were made a bit more extravagant which is normal in manga. They have followed the story the way it is, and they used the best and important scene from the book.

If you enjoyed reading Emma, I would recommend reading this manga. But I would also recommend reading the book before the manga, because in the book Emma’s thoughts are more explained and you understand her actions more than the way they are explained in the manga.
