    One thought on “Manga Classics: The Count of Monte Cristo”

    1. I received an e-ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.The rich story of Count de Monte Cristo comes to life in this amazing manga, with rich drawings, long detailed plot and many deep emotions. I didn't expect the ending since I've watched the movies but I did like it very much!

    2. 5 stars!I knew I would love this! 😁I haven't read the original The Count of Monte Cristo, but from the reviews of those who have this is a really good rendition of it, staying true to the original and not leaving important details out. I, for one, have no complaints. I didn't feel confused at any point, but felt like I did understand the story as it developed well enough.Dantes and his plot for vengeance was awesome. I loved this story, and was rooting for Dantes all the way through. Oh, and [...]

    3. The Count of Monte Cristo, manga style. I never thought I would find something like this, basically because I always thought mangas where some Japanese comics you read from backward to forward, which an inconvenience from my point of view. Mangas never brought my attention but this one did. I had The Count of Monte Cristo novel with me for years but I was always unable to start it, scared of its size (around a thousand pages in Spanish, my native language), its author, its plot with a huge histo [...]

    4. I think this is the best Manga Classic adaptation yet. It helps that the original novel is a highly dramatic and very cool story, so there's something nice and meaty to work with. This is, I think, where The Jungle Book fell down for me: not enough interesting happens. With The Count of Monte Cristo, there's betrayals and blackmails and murder on almost every page. It's awesome. There's obviously been a fair bit trimmed. This is about 400 pages, and an unabridged English translation of the origi [...]

    5. I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.If you have read the Count of Monte Cristo, you obviously don't need me to give an overview of the plot, if you haven't then what the hell are you doing reading reviews on this book? Go and read the original. Now. It's amazing and you will not appreciate this book or the story unless you have read it. And not the abridged version, the whole 1300 page monster.The Count of Monte Cristo is easily my favourite classic novel - perha [...]

    6. My rating 5 Stars.Basically I am a comic book lover, first time I am reading a Manga. I have not read The Count of Monte Cristo book when it was available for review in Net galley I picked it up. The graphic novel “The Count Of Monte Cristo” is 401 pages long, a classic tale of Alexandre Dumas adapted to Manga the art work by Nokman Poon and story adaption by Crystal S.Chan.From the blurb "A conspiracy and a miscarriage of justice turn the gentle Edmond Dante's into an implacable agent of fa [...]

    7. I hadn't ever heard of this book. Never seen the movie. Never read a picture book. And I loved it! I think part of it was, I had NO idea what on earth would happen next. It was so addicting! I literally had trouble putting it down to eat! Put this on your "must-MUST-read" shelf.

    8. I got a review copy form the publisher in exchange for my honest review, all opinions are my own.Possibly my least favourite manga classic. They had to condense the story which isn't strange, after all the book is over a 1,000 pages. However, I would have rather seen that they had published the whole story in separate volumes, giving us the full story at the right pace. What I loved seeing in the original novel is Edmund/The Count doing stuff that didn't make sense to me at all in the beginning [...]

    9. More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog surrealtalvi.wordpress/This is one of the better in the manga classics line; I've been critical of past efforts, especially the overwrought Pride and Prejudice, but I think the authors are improving. Novels are more than their plot and with the classics, the milieu is as important as the characterizations (and sadly lacking in previous manga classic efforts). In this case, a daunting task of taking a 1000 page Dumas adventure novel and turning it into a gr [...]

    10. Edmond Dantes is betrayed by a coworker who wants his job, a romantic rival who will steal his bride, and a crooked government prosecutor with a dark secret to hide. Thrown into prison for decades, Dantes eventually escapes, becomes fabulously wealthy, and vows revenge on those who ruined his life.Count of Monte Cristo is one of my top five favorite novels of all time, so I was interested to see how one of my favorite stories would translate into manga form. Although they had to simplify the sto [...]

    11. Having read the original, I really appreciated this adaptation. The difficult part about this particular Manga was that though, the original book is far more complex, there are over 30 characters' plots to keep up with. However, Crystal S. Chan does a great job of keeping the plot concise and following the book pretty faithfully. The artwork is really great in this one. I will have to go back and re-read the original again. I hope that MANGA Classics keeps on making these. This is a great way to [...]

    12. It's hard to find a lot of things to say about this manga novel. It had no issues and was very well-illustrated First, the setting. It’s set in France in the 19th century. And there are balls, parties, pirates and so on. Who doesn’t love France?I also liked that the author exposed the corruption in the society. The book is basically about destroying corrupt men to the point of no return. Although, I don’t like the concept of revenge, I could understand why it was needed. The men involved w [...]

    13. I got so excited when I saw new books were available in the collection! As usual, the artwork is great and the manga is so fun to read. I absolutely love Manga Classics. For this particular one, I wasn't too fond of the story itself. So for me, it was a great way of discovering the story without having to read the whole book, which I don't think I would have been able to do! Thank you to NetGalley for a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

    14. The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favourite books. So, when I saw the Manga Classics on my daughter's shelf, I got interested. The design of characters is eye catching. The adaptation of the original and its very complicated plot without losing the essence of the story line is efficiently executed.

    15. I received a copy from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Drama, drama, drama need I say more? His book lives up to the novel, and the movie adaption that i LOVE btw.

    16. I received this one as a gift for my bday, since I wanted so much to read it when I saw it, and I will be forever grateful.It was so amazing they did a great job with this classic, the drawing os beautiful I loved this Edmond Dantés a lot he was so sexy. I liked that the plot was so truthfull to the original and the sketches and all at the end were a nice touch. Really recommended for manga and classic lovers.

    17. Thank you to the publishers, Udon Entertainment, for providing an ARC of this manga through NetGalley.This was brilliant! I haven’t read the original Count of Monte Christo, but this manga makes me want to! The illustrations were brilliant and the plot moved quickly. They’ve obviously had to cut down on content to fit the novel into a 400 page manga, but it all made sense and it flowed. I really enjoyed it.

    18. I received a copy of Manga Classics: The Count of Monte Cristo from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. When I saw that Manga Classics had done a version of the Count of Monte Cristo, I knew right away I had to read it. The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favorite classic novels, so I was very curious to see how well it would handle being adapted into a manga version. I’ve read classics that have been converted into manga by Crystal S. Chan before, so I had no worries about [...]

    19. This is my first attempt at reading the classic and I was really excited at the chance of reading this adaption. Unfortunately it did not meet my expectations. The cover is spectacular and it caught my eye right away. The artwork was lovely and it pretty much covered all my requisites for manga, but when it came to the actual adaption of the story… sorry but no. The narrative is hard to follow and there were so many characters in the first few chapters that were introduced without proper expla [...]

    20. The Count of Monte Cristo deals with death (both natural and not), revenge, redemption, corrupt officials, love loss, love gained, and so much more in probably one of the hardest books to adapt into manga format (at least according to the team's notes at the end of the book.) If I were to wager I would say the book should be rated Teen (One of my friends read the original novel for a book report when he was younger so why not.) :) For the most part this book was splendid in all ways with gorgeou [...]

    21. Note: I received an e-copy through NetGalley for review.I LOVE the source material, The Count of Monte Cristo. It's the ultimate tale of revenge (with a little redemption thrown in), and it's one of my all-time favorite novels.As an adaptation, the manga does a very good job of staying close to the original plot. Pretty much all the main characters (and even some side ones) are present and accounted for, as are all the key elements of the Count's revenge schemes against Mondego, Danglars and Vil [...]

    22. Originally written by Alexandre Dumas in 1844, The Count of Monte Cristo is about Edmond Dantès’ pursuit of justice after being wrongly imprisoned on his wedding day. This classic story has received a number of adaptations, including films, sequels, and plays.The Manga Classics version of the story does a respectable job of taking a complex story and breaking it down for readers to follow. Having read both traditional book and this version, I still prefer the original but that could be becaus [...]

    24. Rating: 📚📚📚📚📚The Count of Monte Cristo is a brilliant, dark tale of retribution, and the price of vengeance on all parties involved.This story has all the intense drama and tragedy I am familiar with from other of Dumas’ works. Edmond Dantes, falsely imprisoned on the very day of his engagement, is abandoned in the bowels of Chateau d’If, forgotten for years until he manages escape. Through those long years, Dantes had plenty of time to dwell upon vengeance. I cannot even imag [...]

    25. * Received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you very much! This doesn’t affect the review in any way. My opinions are, as always, my own.*I absolutely loved this. This is one of my Top 3 manga classics. The first one being Jane Eyre, the second is for sure this one and the third is The Stories of Edgar Allan Poe. This had to be in second place because firstly, this story is truly amazing and secondly, because the manga version really makes it [...]

    27. This is how you do a manga adaptation of classic literature! I wasn't so sure that the folks at Udon would be able to cram this gigantic, twisty-turny story into a single graphic novel, but somehow, they did! A few scenes had to be trimmed out, sure, but the subplots, the characters, all of it was in here! It just boggles my mind, and it was a pretty cool reading experience. I also loved the bonus material in the back of the book. Character maps, research, explanations as to why some scenes were [...]

    29. I am delighted to say that is yet another wonderful rendition of a classic book by Udon Entertainment. They have made it possible for me to enjoy so many classics by turning them into graphic novels. I can only guess at how massive of an undertaking it is to do this. I have not read many of the classics over the years, but I am so enthralled with this method of enjoying them, I can’t get enough. I also get a kick out of how the books are read backwards. (Start at the last page instead of the f [...]
