Review: Les Miserables (Manga)

Manga Classics: Les Miserables Softcover - Victor Hugo

This just didn't really work for me. It felt too short, more like a illustrated summary than a proper story. Even Jean Valjean's backstory felt rushed and it was worse with the rest of the characters. The revolution seems to come out of nowhere and it didn't really feel like it was important to any of the participants. 

I liked the drawing-style well enough and perhaps if it had been longer and the characters had been given more depth I could have enjoyed the book more but this way I really couldn't bring myself to care about any of them.
