Probably the first graphic novel I've read (Does Tintin count??) Loved the fact that it took exact dialogues and narratives from Austen's masterpiece and just simplified it with pictures. I would suggest it to people who find classics tedious and are too impatient to sit through the brilliant prose of Jane Austen. This book was faithful to the original and I loved the front and back covers especially. While the graphics were mostly good, it could have been prettier in some places (I got a Shinch ...more

I will admit that I am a little obsessed with Jane Austen at the moment and getting to read her stories with pictures included is such a delight. The artist really captured the story and it was beautiful drawn! I need more Austen graphic novels!

The cover of this book comes with a sassy remark:
"ARE YOU IMMUNE TO THE DARCY APPEAL?"

And with an upturned chin that would make Elizabeth Bennet proud, I can say with unabashed honesty that NO, I am not immune to the Darcy Appeal. Never was, never will be. And so, I ended up buying yet another adaptation of Jane Austen's most loved classic.

To rehash the plot, Darcy is proud. Elizabeth is prejudiced. They fall in love contrary to their pride and prejudice. And 19th century England is all a-tiz

That was delightful! What a singular idea to write a P&P graphic novel. I finished it in one sitting and I may just have to look into more of these...

This combines two of my favorite things: Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and comic books (in this case a graphic novel) so of course when I came across it in the library, I had to snatch it up. The illustrations were alright but left much to be desired; some panels were well drawn with a good amount of detail dedicated to the characters, while others seemed a little sloppy or lazily rendered with very little effort. As for the story, I was pleased that the graphic novel writer(s) decided to be ...more

I enjoyed reading this Graphic book. The drawings were mostly lively and amazing.
They did understandably leave some good parts, but on the other hand some parts became very funny with the graphics.

Wonderful art and interesting story. I have never read Pride and Prejudice nor have I seen any movies about this story, but the graphic novel was okay. It wasn't that interesting as I thought it would be and it made me uninterested to read the actual book. Even though this is a classic story and Jane Austin is a highly recognizable author, I don't think this story was my style. I did read it in one sitting, but only because I wanted to just get this book over with since I started it. Plus I was ...more

This was a graphic novel, so everything was really condensed which was why this seemed so dramatic and funny and all the emotions were x100. Made it all so enjoyable and funny.
Also, since it was already dramatic and shortened up, it was so cringe, especially seeing each scene as I read, and I just couldn't help but laugh because things were mostly in order but a little disconcerting and wack but just really heightened to get the point and each scene across so fast, so *high fives*. Good stuff. L

After having just read a Marvel version from a few years prior, I must say this one is far superior. The art is expressive and pleasant, with creative layouts. The writing and editing are also much more successful, streamlining the plot and focusing on the central events rather than trying to cram in every little detail. The text boxes and speech bubbles look very computer-generated, which I found distracting, but I got used to it and enjoyed the book.

I was SUPER STOKED when I learned of this graphic novel, AND that my library had it!!! I think this is a great way to get classics into the hands of the next generation and that high schools and colleges should look into these, definitely! I really liked how closely this GN stuck to Austen's original work, but some of the faces seemed, I don't know....smudged?

Very cute and well done. I liked the art, and the colouring, though the style was a little inconsistent at times… But the plot was well condensed to fit the format of a graphic novel and didn't leave me missing anything from the original story.

I must admit, for me, the story lost some of it's magic in this format. I think I'd rather read the novel. Though the book stayed true to the novel and the graphics were beautiful..... It just didn't do it for me.

I have an obsession with Pride and Prejudice. A parting present from an ardent friend who had come to Kolkata for his project. I made sure he knew what my favorite obsession was.

The illustration begins well but eventually declines towards the end. I can almost find the Characters loosing their initial designs, and Mr Darcy almost resembling Macfadyen. I can completely comprehend that deadlines can be a bore sometimes. I am happy, nonetheless, with the attempt to make a popular Title into a Graph

In Hertfordshire, England, Netherfield Park is let at last and the local inhabitants can’t stop talking about it’s new occupant, Charles Bingley, and his five thousand a year. His arrival brings much excitement to the Bennet household and will spawn one of the greatest love stories ever told.

Like many others, I am a great fan of, arguably, Jane Austen’s best novel, Pride and Prejudice, and thanks to Lawrence Sach, Rajesh Nagulakonda, and Campfire Comics, the story is brought to life in a whole

Any self-respecting reader has, of course, read Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, especially if she majored in English/Writing. Except me. I'll admit it: old books are a snore. Don't get me wrong: I've read Shakespeare and Dickens and a respectable portion of the Western canon, but after a while...Meh. Anyway, I've felt a bit guilty over the years about ignoring Austen and promised that I would at least one of her novels "soon." And I've been dragging my feet on it ever since - until last weeke ...more

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is a literary classic every reader will swear by. The pride of Fitzwilliam Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet take you on a ride full of emotions that are justified. Different editions of this classic has come out with equally beautiful cover designs from many publishing houses. This review is not just of Pride and Prejudice, but of its graphic novel with illustrations by Rajesh Nagulakunda from Campfire Graphic Novels. The scenes seem to be taken from t ...more

This is the classic Jane Austen love affair. If you haven't read the original or at least seen the movie then you are sorely missing out. It is one of my all time favorite books and movies and Austen is one of my all time favorite authors. I have read and seen just about every version so when I saw that the library had the graphic novel I jumped at the chance to read it.

The graphic novel follows the book pretty well. Obviously it is a condensed version of the book but it hits on the best parts o

No, I am not rating Pride and Prejudice 3.5 stars. In my world rating P&P anything less than 5 stars is blasphemy. Rather I am giving P&P graphic novel 3.5 stars.

This graphic novel is perfect for when you want a quick P&P fix. It’s a pretty quick read with all the famous lines and scenes from the novel.

The graphic art is pretty good and captivating at times but other times it falls flat and looks sloppy. I wish that there was more consistency when it came to the faces of th

For all the characters in Pride and Prejudice life is about to change because a handsome young man and his wealthy best friend move in just down the road. In the book, there are beautiful young women, eligible men, and grand country estates. Pride and Prejudice takes place in the 1800’s when love is about money and not affection.

Each character has a unique story and beliefs when it comes to love. Mrs. Bennet believes that it is the mothers job to find husbands for her five daughters. For Elizab

The Graphic novel of Jane Austen’s famous Pride and Prejudice follows the same story of the classic version. While Mr. Bennet prefers a quiet life, Mrs. Bennet’s most important duty in life is finding eligible suitors for her five daughters. For Elizabeth, marrying without affection is unthinkable. Life is about to change for all of them when a handsome young man and his wealthy and handsome friend take up residence nearby. Mr. Bingley and Jane fall in love immediately.

I'm going to be honest and say that I couldn't make it through Austen's Pride and Prejudice, although it's been a few years, so maybe I should try again. Still, I feel like I've seen or read enough adaptations to say that this was pretty true to the original (or at least to the other adaptations). I took a star off because Mr. Darcy didn't always look the same, and I thought that was weird. (Elizabeth didn't either, but that's not important.) Still, this was a nice read, and no, snappy tagline, ...more

I really liked this. It was my first graphic novel. I have read comics, but not a graphic novel. The author did well, I thought, in condensing a LONG story into a short graphic novel. The story was held intact though it was sort of a "Reader's Digest" version.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the art!

Having never read the actual text this has been adapted from, I cannot comment on how accurate it has been rendered here. I did find some of the artwork inconsistent, the character's appearances changed and morphed, while dresses actually changed colour and pattern....

But if this encourages anyone to go on and read the Austen text, then I say it's worth it. Though for many traditionalists I expect it's quite a radical departure.

While I always love reading the story of Pride and Prejudice, the illustrations really let this down. The text was good and flowed well, except for spelling errors, but the half asleep characters made me cringe. I get that there is an entire book to illustrate, but most of the drawings have a sloppy, unfinished look I didn't like. There were a couple of pretty pictures, but they were in the minority. Three stars.

I am not really a fan of graphic novels, but even so did not really enjoy this. They used mostly original text, but choose to add some thought bubbles to share the thoughts of some of the characters. NOT knowing Mr Darcy's thoughts is actually a really important part of the book all along, so that was disappointing to know. Also knowing more of Elizabeth's awareness of his attentions was distracting.

The artwork in this graphic novel is absolutely awful. Terrible, ugly drawings in washed out colours that have no appeal at all. The adaptation itself was well done and it made for a good read, retelling the classic novel in good form. I've read other graphic novels from Campfire and enjoyed many of them, so I was disappointed with the painful illustration here.
