    " 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 . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ana Geltman | 1/30/2014

    " Pretty good book! It was long but i wasnt bored out of my mind reading it. The book kind of reminded me of a V for Vendetta type situation with the whole secret identity thing. I recommend it to anyone that has the time! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reed Stoney | 1/30/2014

    " I keep a copy of this book on my shelf solely to give to people who have not read it.........Nuf said "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 1/28/2014

    " An extremely lengthy read, if you manage to keep track of the dozens of characters that stroll casually into the hero's life, keep reading, as this is one of the classic revenge novels of ours or any time. The betrayed sailor who escapes from jail, inherits a fortune and renews himself as a bachelor of high society is so well-written that you can practically hear the traps being set as one by one, those who betrayed the Count receive their comeuppance. "

    " The movie not quite like the book and At the end he leaves her! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evania Lawton | 1/23/2014

    " Omg! Not anything like the movie but far more faith-testing and anticipatory with every word! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evangheline Farcas | 1/21/2014

    " I must say that before reading the book, I watched the movie and of course I loved the book far more than the movie. This is a story of ultimate loss, naive belief in the good of humanity, hate, a thrist for vengeance for those who stole the life of Edmund Dantes. Edmond Dantes begins as a naive young man who sees the best in everyone, he is a hard working sailor who is madly in love and engaged to Mercedes. However what he fails to see is the many that envy him and the status of Captain that he is about to obtain. A conspiracy against him unfolds, many participate in this conspiracy which sends Edmund for many years to a cold, dark and despair-filled dungeon. There he goes through many stages of hope, despair, prayer, hate and a longing to end his own life. There he meets the priest a fellow prisoner that tells him of a hidden treasure on the island of Monte Cristo. Many twists and turns arise in this story that is well crafted, among which is Edmund's darring escape and how he is transformed into The Count of Monte Cristo...he goes from avenging angel to angel of mercy and in the end learns that he is not God but a mere man. I love this story for it shows so much what a thirst for revenge does (both the good and the bad). "

About the Author
Author Alexandre Dumas

Alexandre Dumas (1802–1870), French novelist and playwright, was born the son of an innkeeper’s daughter and one of Napoleon’s generals. He moved to Paris in 1823 to make his fortune in the theater, and at twenty-eight he was one of the leading literary figures of his day. His complete works were eventually to fill over three hundred volumes, and his stories made him the best-known Frenchman of his age. He is best known for his ever-popular classic novels The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers.
