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.

Review:

This is the first manga I have read, and I should have probably picked something else.

The art was beautiful. But I had some problems following the story. But I should also admit that I have never read the original The Scarlet Letter. I am going to have to add the book to my TBR and see how well the manga was able to capture the story.
