Manga Classics: Hamlet

We rated this book:


Manga Classics: Hamlet contains the complete, unabridged text from the original play. Hamlet is a story of revenge, and of how Hamlet goes to great length to seek vengeance for his father’s death, even at great cost. Truthfully, I have never been a fan of Shakespeare’s plays, mostly because I had a difficult time reading them in high school. However, I was excited to read Hamlet in a graphic novel format. Having all the illustrations definitely made reading Shakespeare so much more enjoyable and easier to understand. Visually, the graphics are true to manga style with chibi females and handsome males. Prince Hamlet looks like a brooding Prince Darien from Sailor Moon. I didn’t know there are Manga Classics in some popular classic literature like Pride and Prejudice. English class would have been a lot more enjoyable had these books been around when I was in high school. I think Manga Classics can really help some readers understand and appreciate classic literature more. I highly recommend the Manga Classic series to manga fans, classic literature fans, and especially to readers who struggle with older stories.
