Experience CLASSIC tales in MANGA format!

Considered to be Charles Dickens finest novel, Great Expectations has it all: romance, mystery, comedy and unforgettable characters woven through a gripping rags-to-riches tale.

In the telling of Pip's story, Dickens traces a na├»ve boy's path from a hardscrabble rural life to the teeming streets of 19th-century London, unfolding a gripping tale of crime and guilt, revenge and reward, and love and loss. Its compelling characters include Magwitch, the fearful and fearsome convict; beautifully cold Estella, whose allure is excelled only by her haughtiness; and the embittered Miss Havisham, an eccentric jilted bride and the rest of Dickens’s fantastic cast are perfectly envisioned in this brilliant adaptation featuring the beautiful artwork by Nokman Poon.

Review: I've already read Great Expectations. The 5/5 is due to my enjoyment of this story. This is nicely stitched together and fits perfectly with the original story. The emotions in this is well written, illustrated that you can feel them.

Recommend? Yes, definitely. Great fit for kids who may struggle with the classics. They can be intimidating for readers. But this expresses and shows the story in a way that is easier for them. Love everything that makes classics attainable.
