    Adventured of Huckleberry Finn!!! First things first: I received this book through NetGalley. This review is going to hurt me more than any review I have ever written. I love these Manga Classics, they brought me closer to stories that I never thought I would like.  But this one on the other hand. I thought I was gonna love this. Adventures. I love adventures. But I was just so damn bored throughout this whole book. The story was beautifully d...

    I received a copy of Manga Classics: Adventures of Huckleberry Finn from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is another flawless adaptation into Manga done by the wonderful Chrystal Chan and Chan (the artist). I’ve now read a handful of the Manga Classics, and I’ve got to say, I am still in love with the concept. Converting classics into Manga form creates beautiful and approachable works of ...

    'Manga Classics: Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' is an ambitious retelling of the famous book by Mark Twain. The adaptation is by Crystal Chan and the art is by Kuma Chan. After 'The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,' Tom and Huck are flush with money. The attempts by the town folks to civilize Huck make him itch to be free. When his drunk father shows up and threatens to take all of Huck's money, he sets out to hide. Going with him is runaway slave Jim....

    Well, this has been extremely difficult to finish!The adaptor chose to maintain the different dialects Mark Twain used in the original book and from an Italian point of view that was hard to read. When it was Jim's turn to speak... Oh my... I mean, it took me almost 120 pages to understand that gwyne meant going.Funny that they chose to maintain the N-word all over the place but they eliminate every mentions of Huck smoking. It seems weird. I mea...

    * 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...

    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...

    Written by Mark Twain in 1884, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is the controversial story of Huck Finn and Jim as they sail down the Mississippi River to leave their pasts behind.This version of the story does a commendable job of maintaining the original intent of Mark Twain while adapting it to the graphic novel format. I found some of the eye dialect a little difficult to understand because of the spelling and grammar contained in the story...

    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.

After a while his father comes back to town, and isn’t happy with the way he is being raised. So his father kidnap...
