Dashing young Edmond Dantès has everything: a fine reputation, an appointment as captain of a ship, and the heart of a beautiful woman. But his perfect life is shattered when three jealous friends conspire to destroy him. Falsely accused of a political crime, Dantès is locked away for life in the infamous Chateau d’If prison. But it is there that Dantès learns of a vast hidden treasure. After fourteen years of hopeless imprisonment, Dantès makes his daring escape and follows his secret map to untold fortune. Disguised now as the mysterious and powerful Count of Monte Cristo, Dantès seeks out his enemies—and nothing will stand in the way of his just revenge.

Filled with thrilling episodes of betrayal, romance, and revenge, The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the greatest adventure stories ever written.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A piece of perfect storytelling.”

    Robert Louis Stevenson

  • “John Lee imbues this classic with exactly the right balance of solemnity and compassion. His light accents for characters of various nationalities give them individual personalities without overdoing them in the slightest. Lee works with Dumas’s text to give each character complexity and emotion. The listener regrets the story’s end, wishing to live with Edmund and his adventures just a little longer. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”


  • “From the first page of the novel, Dumas separates the ‘good guys’ from the bad and pulls the reader into the drama, squarely on Edmond’s side…Lee’s deep muscular voice works well for this swashbuckler. While he vocally differentiates characters only lightly, his reading is highly expressive, his pace brisk, his tone rich with foreboding.”

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Chris Ciabattone | 5/19/2016

    " This is a great book. I like to mix up my books and every 4th book I listen to is a classic. Titles like Pride and Prejudice, Great Expectations, The Brothers Karamazov, For whom the bell tolls, etc. There is a reason why they are classics and that is that they are so well written that they stand the test of time and never get old. The Count of Monte Cristo belongs to be counted as one of the classics. A intricate tale of betrayal and revenge. John Lee does an excellent job narrating the novel. "

    " This is my favorite book of all. The plot has twists and turns throughout and kept me riveted. I was in the 5th grade when I first read it but have enjoyed it over and over throughout the years. I believe I am on the 4th copy of this wonderful book and just thinking about it will reread it again soon. "
