    I have tried several times to like Huckleberry Finn, in every form, including the original novel. This was my last attempt, and it was no more successful than any of the others. I at least got all the way through the story this time. The art is fine, though I'm perplexed by Huck being the only character to have improbable manga hair. I also found it very interesting that the adaptation team chose to leave the racial slurs intact from the original...

    * 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.*3.5 starsI was really excited for this book since I've never read the original classic but I've always wanted. I can't say this is one of my favorite manga classics. But it's a pretty good one nonetheless. It talks about racism, feuding families, abuse, alco...

    Manga Classics is a great way to get through the classics in a manner that is more visually friendly. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn has some issues that made me not enjoy it as much as others in the series.As usual, the art is lovely and the story is mainly condenses in away that is easy to understand and focuses on the main points the author was trying to convey. So it does well making the story accessible to a reader who might not want to ...

    * Received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*This manga is based on the classic The adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

    i got my copy from netgalley the time when the n-word wasnt a slur but how they called them african people…. do not get offended. the book in itself ( i mean the original classic too ) pretty damn racist and sexist but hey, its how it is. the art is very simplistic and it is best recommended for middle grade children to read. its adventurous and fun to read anyone who liked black butler (Kuroshitsuji ) will most likely find this as a fun read e...

    I was excited about reading this book because I've never read the original classic so this was basically a new story for me. This book cover many topics, racism, friendship, abuse, etc. While some parts of the story were more interesting than others, all in all the book is good. The story is both heartbreaking and funny. The graphics are easy to follow even though there are several types of dialect throughout the book. As with most manga books, t...

    I love that this manga (Japanese comic) took a classic and was able to put a storytelling spin on it. It's definitely different and unique, and I think that fans of classics (because they have more than just Huckleberry Finn!) will definitely appreciate this line of classic retellings in comic book format.Note: An e-ARC was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
