Rated 4 out of 5 by from Manga Meets Classic Literature ~Disclaimer~ I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The classic story of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte is taken and made into a super cute manga. I have to start this by saying that I have not read Jane Eyre yet, it is on my tbr shelf. Having not read the original novel I can't compare it to this manga. The cover is drawn very beautifully. I like how it shows Jane looking pretty and reserved in front of Thornfield Hall. Throughout the whole manga the illustrations are very well done. The one thing I have to say is that characters who say that they are unattractive or have some sort of disfigurement are drawn very handsomely. But I guess that can be said with any manga. This manga has made me want to finally read Jane Eyre. I am interested in reading it to see if it was exactly like the original and to get the whole story. I found this to be a good mixture of classic literature and manga. 4/5 ⭐

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best of both worlds come together in harmony!!!! I’ve always been a big Otaku since I was quite young. Then when I went to high school I became a big fan of classic literature. So mostly what I read is manga/graphic novels and classics works. And then this happens!!!!! The best of both worlds come together in harmony!!!! The classic love story of Jane Eyre (my favorite novel of all times) but with gorgeous tradition manga drawings. The drawings are very clean, beautiful and detailed. The characters all look splendid and all have their own look that makes it easy to identify who is who to a fan without evening knowing. The details on the clothes and background are exquisite. These are some of the best manga drawing I’ve seen in a while; they’re no panel that is nothing less than clean, precise and beautiful. And we even have the traditional Ghibi that are here and there. Some people find it take away from the story. But I find those the part that reminds you it’s still a manga, the Ghibi’s appear at the silly moment. I’ve read a few manga classics like this and I find that the Pride and Prejudice is the one that has the best balance of serious storytelling and silly Ghibi moments. This one has more a serious tone in the story so sometimes the Ghibi’s felt out of place. Great decision to have the books available in paperback and hard cover editions. You can have the manga’s tradition paperback or the traditional hardcover from classic period novels. Two worlds come together and I can’t wait to have more of them in my collection.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expected more I ordered this in June of this year (2016) when it was supposed to be released in August. Then it kept going back and forth between being released in September or January 7th of 2017. The most irritating thing to experience, especially with a book that has been your favourite since you were in elementary school. I have the original a kobo version an adapted version called simply "Jane" by April Launder (you should all read that one it is fantastic!), and now I ordered this one last week and it came yesterday. I cancelled it from my original order due to the stupidity. But now I finally have it, and read it....I don't know what to say really. It's nothing shy from disapointing. I have all the Manga adaptions of Jane Austen's novels and they're great. But this one just did not please me. At least the drawings are usually amazing/astounding but for some of them they seemed rushed. I credit anyone who tries to bring pictures into original classics, but I believe the 'authors' should have taken more time to release this amazing book, because it is not good enough for a fan. And I am more than just a fan of this book...not even 1/5 stars for me. #sorrynotsorry

Editorial Reviews

Another brilliant adaptation of one of the most famous classics in English literature: Jane Eyre. I've read the original once a long time ago and by the time I finished with the manga adaptation I wanted to run and read it again. - GoodReads.com"
