In (Very) Short:
+ graphic novel of Pride and Prejudice
+ lifted right of the original novel
+ good art work
+ enjoyable read
This was my first graphic novel and this will be my first review of one and I honestly don’t know where to start or how to do it. Anyway here goes nothing…
I have read Pride and Prejudice, I have seen the movies and BBC adaptations, shortly: I know the story. I cannot say anything about this graphic novel concerning the story, because it was pretty much lifted from the book: same dialogue, same scenes. All was good.
I enjoyed reading a graphic novel. It was fun and interesting. I liked the art work. It wasn’t really breath-taking, but then again who am I to judge. I have no artistic bone in my body.
The idea of turning a classic into a graphic novel is great and it just might get some people to read this version who just don’t want to spend all the time reading the original text. However, I will have to read other graphic novel adaptation of a book that I have not read before in order to get a feeling for the genre.
I really enjoyed the graphic novel as it was mostly lifted of the original. The art work was good and the read was fast.
