Description
From JShoujo Scans:

Geraldine Francis is the innocent daughter of a wealthy aristocrat. Being sheltered all her life, she is oblivious to her cousin Charles' true intentions when he lures her in and makes her fall hopelessly in love with him. It is only after the murder of her father that she realizes his love was nothing but love for the money and the land that came with her name. She vows revenge, and she throws away her past in order to become "Silver," the perfect woman. With a new face, and a new lease on life, she will turn the tables on the man whom she once loved so that this time, it is he who will be left with nothing.

Adaptation of English fiction Silver by Penny Jordan.

Yes I'm glad I gave it a try even though there are negative comments ! If you're a josei lover I'm pretty sure you'll like this too. Personally I read it whole in one night as I couldn't stop reading !!!!

The drawing is okay, pretty pure and old fashioned. The rhythm keeps you tense all along. The characters are quite profound in a sense they act accordingly to what you can expect from then but being at the same time really complex so that you can be surprised. And it's the whole story that is like that : you can't mistake it for anything but a josei although I'm not sure there are any similar story already existing.

When I first read the premise, I avoided this series because I hate needless drama. But still, people kept recommending this to me, so I figured, why not give it a shot? Hahaha. Ha. No.

I knew that I would have to endure a couple chapters of soppy back story before the protagonist gets a backbone, but really? 20 chapters? Completely unnecessary. The author could have easily settled it in less than half that amount. Basically, the whole first bit was the girl being a dumbass. Honestly, when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Charles was trying to choke the brat, I almost started cheering out loud,
. It might just be me being a bitch, but seriously. She has a lot of issues. I don't even know why I bothered. I normally steer clear of anything even close to resembling this melodramaramarama. The revenge bit is (marginally) better, but still headache-inducing. I don't know, I just can't bring myself to finish this. Maybe I'll try again when I feel less rant-y.

Excuse me, then. I need to go detox from the sloppy mess that is this manga. Good day.

Like all the "adapted from English-language novel" mangas, this is very soap-opera-y so don't expect too much.

The josei tag is a bit misleading--yeah, it's slightly josei but it has a load of shoujo cliches on the count that it's a dime-store romance novel adaption. It's got revenge, a beautiful female lead, a tragic past, rich people, smut, misunderstandings, lost loves and a brooding male lead. I personally didn't find the story so bad but it went on a lot longer than it should have. The manga-ka could have easily ended this with around 30 chapters.

But if it's raining and you're looking for some guilty pleasure manga, then I would seriously say read this. If you're not into soap-operay situations, I would steer clear.

This is my first review but don't take it lightly. Without saying any spoilers, I will get to the point - this series was a total disappointment. The revenge part of it was cool, but poorly executed. The author took way too long to explicate the character's past. When I read this, I thought : "It's set in a fictional world that imitates Europe, so forgive its unrealistic aspects". Oh, but there are many. What coincidences there are in this manga are way too unlikely and cliche. The plot is hugely subjugated in favor of sex, and believe me, there are many sex scenes. Plot hole after plot hole, I found it hard to sympathize with any of the characters. Oh, why can't it have an ending like Hamlet!? With only Bridey living and telling the story. Haha...no
I only recommend this if you want to see some smut with an over-dramatic plot. The art was pretty interesting though, despite being dated and whatnot.
P.S. Get this, the author also has a series called "Gold"...pfft

This plot was so filled with dark, rich plot that I had to finish it in one sitting. Each of the characters are very complex and you understand each of their struggles. The main character, though very stupid at the beginning and naive in the middle, she becomes a strong willed and ferocious character that kicks major a**. For a psychological romance manga, read it!

I'm surprised some people didn't like this manga!

Plot: really lured me in. There's been a couple manga's where they change their appearance for a guy but this time was definitely different. I loved the twists and turns and the events that occurred and how everything was thought up really well. It's definitely an addicting manga so if you have homework to do, don't start reading this yet bigrazz
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I loveeeedddd how Charles fell in love with her. It just made everything so much more thrilling and exciting!


Characters: Loved all of them. I really liked the character development Geraldine went through and how much strength she was able to muster up after all those years. The way
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Geralde and Jake go so well together was absolutely breathtaking. They had so much love for each other and they were able to support each other no matter what.
I also really liked Charles despite all he's done. I just couldn't get myself to hate him because you get to see the reason why he turns out the way he is and
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
in the end, you see that he's just a human guy who feels regret about killing her dad and you can see that he really just wants to be happy and he thinks that by inheriting the Roswell's money, he can get it. He's had such a bad childhood, it's no surprise he wants money that badly.
You definitely go through an emotional roller-coaster: Happy, sad, angry, ecstatic, worried, anticipation, power, love, sympathy, empathy and just so much more.

Romance: Smut-- but not pointless smut. It was definitely convenient and had a reason. Not TOO smutty as well so it had a good balance and yeah, definitely a romance manga haha!

Ending: Perfect.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
In my opinion, Charles had to die. I mean he had nothing going for him after losing everything but nevertheless, it was definitely bittersweet because you start to see another side of him-- his soft side right before he dies. Things that weren't supposed to happen twisted everything around and so Geraldine felt bad and told Charles to shoot her but he couldn't because he just loved her so much already *tear* and so he made his own choice to jump off the cliff and said "Be Happy, Geraldine Francis" and it ended with her and Jake spending the rest of their life together
It was absolutely beautiful.

The first few chapters were awesome! Then I realized that the author planned to do the story on Gerry's past for a few volumes, and it was depressing to see Gerry turning into a fat, ugly woman (like in an instant). The author should have just cut short the whole scenario to a few chapters, not a few volumes.

Then, there was the transformation part, which took a few volumes until volume 7. The transformation part was not exactly nice to read(only in the beginning though), then Jake got all moody and weird about wanting his revenge and thinking Gerry does not love him at all(although it was so obvious), till it seemed like he didn't want Gerry's love. So he abandoned her in Switzerland.

Then there was the part where the revenge took place. Gerry's way of doing things was not brilliant, and Charles was annoying as usual. And this took up some volumes. Then the revenge was done, and G and J got married. The page on the marriage was just 1 page though, how disappointing.

This story was just too draggy, while some important moments were cut short. The author should have just cut everything short into a few volumes, like 3 volumes instead and pay less attention to Charles.

One of the best in the josei list smile i couldnt put this down for 4 hours. my hands are numb and my eyes are sore just to finish this wink
There were a lot of wonderful things. Put aside Geraldine`s childhood naivety, i think everything was wonderful. Almost everything is so realistic. every girl`s first love is usually like that, falling in love with a playboy or something. silver`s revenge was actually amazing. (shows you how far a woman would go to get revenge, whatever time period it is). The twist where
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
jake becomes blind and becomes her sex teacher
was actually good. charles ambition was the cause of his evil personality but you just cant hate him. too much beautiful stuff in this mature manga but finally, when silver
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
gave the gun to charles and offered her life and even cried at the end
proves that she has an ounce of humanity and even shred of past love left for him. Smut was hot, and the fact that she becomes a woman that charms everyone actually gave me a good image for my own novel (which is almost creepily the same as the idea of this story though I`ve been writing my novel before I even came across this) so anyway, all the guys were bishies. I wish there was more of Salim. sad

I simply loves this manga! I started reading it late last night and I couldn't put it done even though my eyes felt so heavy. I ended up falling asleep halfway through and the first thing I did when I woke up was to pick iy up again and read to the end.

I loved how Geraldine was able to turned into Silver and yet deep within her, the true and gentle self still remains that she was willing to give up her revenge.

Overall, the arts are good, plot is intriguing and it is definitely one of my best read!
