About the Book:
Title: Jane Eyre
Author: Charlotte Bronte
Publisher: UDON Entertainment
“As an orphaned child, Jane Eyre is first cruelly abused by her aunt, then cast out and sent to a charity school. Though she meets with further abuse, she receives an education, and eventually takes a job as a governess at the estate of Edward Rochester. Jane and Rochester begin to bond, but his dark moods trouble her. When Jane uncovers the terrible secret Rochester has been hiding, she flees and finds temporary refuge at the home of St. John Rivers.”
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte in manga format published by UDON Entertainment was a great read. I finished this manga in one sitting. I love classics and classics in manga format have made me love manga too. I had not read Jane Eyre before (in any format) but after reading this manga, I am sure I will be picking the novel version from the library or bookstore soon enough.
I really had fun reading it. Because of the illustrations in manga, I did not have to imagine any setting or place according to that era because it was already illustrated. Reading this book was a nice experience.
I am a huge fan of art present in comic books, graphic novels and manga. The art is just amazing here.
Do I Recommend It?
I definitely recommend this to anyone. I recommend especially this to:
- Teachers who want to get students interested in classics
- Those who just love classics (like me)
- Manga lovers
- Those who want to give classics a try but are not sure where to start
- Those who want to introduce their children to classic stories but children are mostly interested in reading picture books and short stories (this can be a win-win. You would get your children to read, introduce them to classic books and they would get to read in a way they like).
I was provided an e-ARC by the publisher through Netgalley.
