this one, however, has the same paper they use in traditional manga pages; has a slight hint of yellow and the pages feel they came out of the newspaper.
but over all I'm very satisfied with it, and it goes well with my other Udon collection books.
The manga adaptation has a length of 350 pages and the original story is very well adapted just like all the previous ones. For someone that wants to know the story of Les Misérables, I definitely recommend this adaptation. The drawings match perfectly the dark atmosphere of 19th century France with the coldness and cruel reality of the period but also the light that comes with hope and redemption. All the emotions of the original novel are there and for me it was even more emotional since it’s not just descriptions but illustrations as well.
A moving story that shows the dark parts of French society for those that weren’t born with privileges and that suffered the injustice of society and life. Valjean that was arrested for 19 years for stealing bread to feed his family; Fancine, abandoned by the man she loved to face the judgement of society for having an illegitimate child, only to die after a battle that she could never win.
This review was originally published on NetGalley.
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.
