Il conte di Montecristo è uno dei più famosi romanzi di Alexandre Dumas. E' cnsiderato la sua opera migliore, fu finito nel 1844, e fu pubblicato nei due anni successivi come romanzo d'appendice, in una serie di 18 parti. Questa è la storia, per dirla con le parole del protagonista, di un uomo che aveva riposte tutte le proprie speranze, tutta la propria felicità sopra una donna: era giovane, aveva un vecchio padre che amava, una fidanzata che adorava; era sul punto di sposarla; per uno di quei capricci della sorte, che farebbe quasi dimenticare la bontà di Dio, se Dio poi non si rivelasse più tardi, mostrando che tutto è per lui un mezzo di condurre alla sua misericordia infinita, ad un tratto gli fu tolta la libertà, la fidanzata, l'avvenire che sognava e che credeva suo, per seppellirlo nel fondo di un carcere. Ebbene! Nel momento supremo, Dio si rivelò a lui con un mezzo umano; forse al primo istante non comprese questa misericordia infinita del Signore, poiché ci vuol tempo agli occhi velati di lacrime per schiudersi del tutto; ma infine prese pazienza e aspettò.E' dunque una storia di pazienza e di attesa, e la vendetta del prigioniero, prima inseguita e poi maledetta , non fu che una fiamma accesa da Dio per illuminare la strada dell'uomo Edmondo Dantès, e un'esca letteraria lanciata dall'autore Dumas per tenere avvinti i lettori, storia dopo storia, da Parigi, a Roma, a Giannina d'Epiro, fino alla misteriosa isola di Montecristo.

    " This is a true classic. Books are not longer written like this. Reading this book was similar to a religious experience! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna Khachatryan | 1/28/2014

    " This book is the best book I've ever read. I like Dumas's works very much)) While reading this book, it seems that you just fall into it and participate to all the events.... I really liked it very much and I recommend you to read it ;) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie Gauntt | 1/27/2014

    " Loved it- Always a Classic "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Morgan | 1/27/2014

    " I read this book for school and it was perhaps one of the best books that I ever HAD to read. It seems to have everything you could want in a book. It was not a difficult read and is very compelling. You want to know how the character is going to seek his revenge on those who have wronged him. I enjoyed that it doesn't necessarily mean that he goes out and kills them all. It is just an absolutely fantastic book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ronald Warner | 1/27/2014

    " I've read this book 5 times in my life time. I seem to re read it every 10 years. Each time I am as captivated with it as the 1st time I read it. Truly a great story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angela Cross | 1/14/2014

    " I didn't think I'd like this book but had to read if. It was fantastic!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 1/14/2014

    " I thought some of it was very beautiful and there were quotable parts. The issue I had with it (why it's not a 5 star though I'm pretty liberal with them) is how Edmond is set up to god-like status. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane Stuart | 1/13/2014

    " Quite simply the greatest book I have read. It has everything. Takes you through a good variety of settings and has a central character that you genuinely care about. Despite its length, I did not want this book to end. Absorbing and brilliant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bannister Nicholas | 1/9/2014

    " Loved this, has been a great influence on my life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kavita Monteiro | 12/13/2013

    " I loved this. But get the abridged version. I read both and there's not a lot extra in unabridged version "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Morgana87 | 12/8/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gail Bonicalzi | 10/1/2013

    " OMG , This book is so great. I lost sleep as I could not put it down. My first Kindle read! I may now read The Three Musketeers. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsay | 8/10/2013

    " I feel cheated by reading this abridgment. Very little character development. Plot moved, at times, too quickly. But the story is exciting, nonetheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jerami | 8/7/2013

    " It has been a couple months, but I LOVED this book. Do people write with such intuition and insight anymore? It felt at times like reading Les Miserables or War and Peace with the casual epiphanies every other page. I wanted to turn around and just read it again. It was an experience. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna Groman | 2/25/2013

    " This is an epic story with twists and turns you could not believe. This is a true storytelling story in the sense of childhood books, filled with goodies and baddies and absolutely no boredom. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shaun Johnson | 2/2/2013

    " Masterpiece. It's a classic for a reason. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean Bailey | 12/3/2012

    " If you enjoyed the movie with Jim Caviezel I'm not sure you'll like this one so much.. But it's still pretty good. Very long tho! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 11/29/2012

    " The best book. Ever. It is huge, but you can't really feel it, and when you finish the last page you will miss reading it. I have reread it at least 10 times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtney | 11/1/2012

    " This book is now one of my all time favorites. It was very long but very good, and the plot was great! Will add more later. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephen Miller | 6/13/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gj | 5/30/2012

    " I liked it as much as the movie. Of course there is more in the book, but they were both equally exciting for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sneh Pradhan | 4/5/2012

    " The quintessential revenge saga !!! First read it when i was 10 , re-reading it after all these years has not diluted its pleasures a trifle . "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy Denham | 2/6/2012

    " I enjoyed this book as I am also a fan of his other novels. Well worth taking time out of a busy life to read a chapter or two. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louise Levido | 2/1/2012

    " Mystery, intrigue, revenge and redemption are tied up in this adventure tale. Well worth the read and be sure to read a good translation. "

About the Author
Author Alexandre Dumas

Alexandre Dumas fils (1824–1895), was the illegitimate son of Alexandre Dumas, père, who followed in his father’s footsteps becoming a celebrated author and playwright. In 1831 his father legally recognized him and ensured the young Dumas received the best education possible at the Institution Goubaux and the Collège Bourbon. At that time, the law allowed the elder Dumas to take the child away from his mother. Her agony inspired Dumas fils to write about tragic female characters. In almost all of his writings, he emphasized the moral purpose of literature and in his 1858 play, Le fils Naturel (The Illegitimate Son), he espoused the belief that if a man fathers an illegitimate child, then he has an obligation to legitimize the child and marry the woman. In 1844 Dumas, fils, moved to Saint-Germain-en-Laye. There, he met Marie Duplessis, a young courtesan who would be the inspiration for his romantic novel, Camille (La Dame aux Camillas).
