About the Book:
Title: The Count of Monte Cristo
Author: Alexandre Dumas

“On the very day of his wedding to the beautiful Mercedes, a young merchant sailor named Edmond Dantes is falsely imprisoned for life, laying to waste his plans of marriage and hard-earned fortune. Following several long years in prison he has managed to escape and reinvent himself as the mysterious Count of Monte Cristo. It is the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte and the Count has been plotting his revenge on the three men who had him falsely imprisoned. With a new identity, an incredible education abroad and a vast fortune, has returned completely unrecognizable to those who had committed their crimes against him.”
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas in manga format published by UDON Entertainment is such a fun and amazing read. I absolutely love the concept of classics to be adapted in manga format. This makes the whole reading experience so much fun.
It is such an enticing read especially because of the illustrations in manga. The illustrations were just so 👌😍.
I am also 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) a
- 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.
