About the Book:

Title: Great Expectations Manga Classics

Author: Charles Dickens, Nokman Poon, Crystal S Chan, Stacy King

Publisher:  UDON Entertainment

Genre: Comics & Graphic Novels , Teens & YA


I have not read ‘Great Expectations’ by Charles Dickens novel version but after reading this manga adaptation by Nokman Poon, Crystal S Chan, Stacy King and published by
UDON Entertainment , I will be picking the novel version from the library or bookstore soon enough. 

I read this full manga in one sitting. This outright had my full attention from beginning till end. 

The illustrations were so good and they fully captured the essence of the whole story. The black and white artwork throughout the manga was so nice and beautiful. Be it showing the inner conflict Pip is going through or the imagery, the artwork is what truly captures the reader’s heart.         

Sometimes readings Dickens’ works, you may have felt that he sometimes goes pages and pages about something which becomes tiresome. In this version that is not the case. And if you, like me, have also faced the problem of imagining the things or scenes mentioned in the old novels sometimes, well the art has solved that problem here. 

This was my first manga and I thoroughly enjoyed it. 


If you want to introduce someone especially young readers to the classics, this manga adaptation is something I highly recommend. I also recommend this to all the readers and book lovers. 


I was provided an e-ARC by the publisher through Netgalley.
