    1. Tricia says:

      some classics are so much easier to read in graphic novel format.

    2. Nancy says:

      I found the Audible version of this book, quite entertaining An American family moves into a haunted house in England The boys in the family play tricks on the ghost, and make him feel he has no worth as a ghost The young girl in the family is kind to the ghost, and ends up helping him.

    3. Lora says:

      This is a well illustrated graphic novel version of the original Canterville Ghost It has some great pictures and most especially, stays pretty loyal to the original I had to go obsess and compare the two, and there are a few lines missing, but nothing substantial The mood and humor are preserved quite well I would probably feel like I had to help a youngster who read this, because a few jokes are historical prods at the cultures and countries of the time Perhaps a little history lesson might be [...]

    4. Karen says:

      This is the first graphic novel I have read, having really no interest in graphic novels at all It probably wasn t the best choice I could have made as I would much rather read classic literature in tried and true literary form, but given all of that, I liked it It seems to be part of a series of literary titles published by Classical Comics in graphic form to gin up student interest in the classics The story is a parody on the gothic genre so popular in Oscar Wilde s day It turns the typical gh [...]

    5. Yasmin says:

      This must be one of the best graphic novels of a story of Oscar Wilde so far Unfortunately in this edition there were a few words missing in the speech bubbles But otherwise an excellent adaption of the story It s so good I will add it to my buy list I don t know if this will be readily agreed with, indeed many may find it offence, however, I have to say in a strange sweet way in the two chronological look at Oscar Wilde s life the trials and imprisonment are not even mentioned I say this is a p [...]

      Having last read The Canterville Ghost in secondary school, it was great to revisit this humorous horror story in a different form the graphic novel My 9 year old son received this for Christmas in preparation for an opera visit tomorrow which sees the Canterville Ghost aiming to scare the audience at the Zurich Opera House in vain, I suspect The full colour drawings in this edition are fantastic, and the words are all the original text, so it was a truly wonderful combination to enjoy First rea [...]

    7. Amanda says:

      I found this story to be absolutely hysterical Despite his greatest efforts, the Canterville ghost just can t seem to scare anyone No amount of blood on the floor or the rattling of chains will do the job Frustration grows within the ghost as he falls victim to ghoulish pranks played by humans The graphics in this comic are superb I defintely reccomend this book to anyone who would enjoy a ghost story gone awry.

    8. Laura says:

      I ve given other classical literature the graphic novel treatment this one didn t quite live up to my expectations, but was decent enough for the 45 minute read Some speech bubbles are missing letters which made the reading a bit weird, but the art was nice If you ve read Oscar Wilde s original you may be disappointed If you ve watched the movies you might like this better 2.5 3.

    9. Brandon O'Neill says:

      I like the Classical Comics series of graphic novels and Oscar Wilde Great story in full color and some biographical information at the end One of the first horror comedy mixes to come out.

    10. EBugs says:

      I m not familiar with the original story by Oscar Wilde, so I cannot comment on the story itself but my guess is that I would not have liked it I LOVED the speed at which you can read a graphic novel AND I loved the graphics I think I will try some others, hopefully with a better story line.

    11. Emily says:

      A great modern graphic novel adaptation of a classic gothic horror comedy

    12. K M says:

      Read along side the Kindle edition to make sure I wasn t missing anything Only a few sentences here and there were missing made unnecessary by the artwork from the graphic novel.

    14. Rebecca Roberts says:

      A very throughly enjoyable read, loved any mixture of it.

    15. Flint says:

      Absolutely hilarious

    16. תניה says:

      Well I must say that the graphic novel misses the point slightly It is about the contrast between old British values and modern American ones, but it just does not get there It lacks.
