Stacy King – The Count of Monte Cristo (Manga Classic) | Review

17904051_1375138869191962_268420246773468670_nI don’t think it is a secret that Alexandre Dumas’ masterpiece The Count of Monte Cristo is my all-time favorite novel. I have written an extensive review of the book this summer which you can read here. I think the novel is simply one of the greatest pieces of literature ever written. I adore the plot, the characters and the whole vibe of the book. The writing is simply stunning. So, naturally, when I got the chance to read the Manga Classics retelling of my favorite story I simply could not say no.

I rather liked this manga. I liked that there was little to no step away from the original story. The art is beautiful, but I must say I was not amazed by it. At the moment it did seem like the dialogues were made easier in a way. That I didn’t like. I believe they did it in case a person who did not read the original novel wanted to read the manga. I am a bit opposed to that, but that is simply because I think the original work is amazing.

One thing I particularly like about the art in this manga is the way certain characters were drawn when they were young and old. I think it was done masterfully. Also, Edmonds disguises were wonderful!

 

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
