{Synopsis} – A powerful tale of forbidden love, shame, and revenge comes to life in Manga Classics: The Scarlet Letter. Faithfully adapted by Crystal Chan from the original novel, this new edition features stunning artwork by SunNeko Lee (Manga Classics: Les Miserables) which will give old and new readers alike a fresh insight into the Nathaniel Hawthorne’s tragic saga of Puritan America. Manga Classics editions feature classic stories, faithfully adapted and illustrated in manga style, and available in both hardcover and softcover editions. Proudly presented by UDON Entertainment and Morpheus Publishing.

{My thoughts} – Graphic novels have become a big thing in my house as of lately. My daughter is the one that had started. She loves anime and started buying and reading the manga it is based off of. With that said, I really need to get my hands on a copy of all of the Manga Classics for her!

This book is a prime classic that most readers know about, although they may not have read it. I remember it being discussed in the Pretty Little Liars Series by Sara Shepard when I was reading it. The story goes along the lines of a woman named Hester that commits a terrible sin, that results in pregnancy. Because she commits the sin she is forced to wear a Scarlett A that depicts the sin she’d committed. As the story progresses her husband finds out about what happened and seeks vengeance on the man that had taken part in the sin with his wife.

This story is remarkably depicted within the pages of this novel. The illustrations help to show the reader the raw emotion that the author is trying to convey. I have not had the pleasure of reading the original book, I realize I am saying that a lot with these reviews, but after reading this, I really do want to read th original!

If your a fan of graphic novels and manga and are wanting to read the classics: I highly recommend you read this series. It’s incredible!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
