Adapted for stage and screen, loved by millions, Victor Hugo's classic novel of love and tragedy during the French Revolution is reborn in this fantastic new manga edition!The gorgeous art of TseMei Lee brings to life the tragic stories of Jean Valjean, Inspector Javert, and the beautiful Fantine, in this epic adaptation of Les Miserables!
I thought the story was very clear in this graphic novel form; however, I know it from seeing the musical several times. The interesting part about it was reading it "manga style." Reading a book from back to front and right to left turned out to be a very easy transition, but surprisingly, it made my experience a little bit fun. :) I thought the graphics were terrific and would certainly read another in this style.
