The Count of Monte Cristo is yet another fantastic adaptation for Manga Classics. The manga format brings excitement to this timeless classic and a new level of context for the next generation readers. Manga Classics continue to garner praise from across the spectrum from teachers, librarians, and trade publications such as Publishers Weekly, VOYA (Voice of Youth Advocates), and School Library Journal.
Manga Classics: The Count of Monte Cristo by Stacy King
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I am impressed with this. I love the original book, but it is very long. The story adaptors and artists did a great job of translating the original into a manga and still telling its story. They even included portions at the end explaining some changes and information about real locations within the story and the characters. I loved the artwork and the whole idea of making a classic into a manga. This was an enjoyable experience for me.
