An adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy, and forgiveness, it focuses on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune and sets about getting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty.
Considered a literary classic today, The Count of Monte Cristo has become a fixture of Western literature, as inescapable and immediately identifiable as Mickey Mouse, Noah's flood, and the story of Little Red Riding Hood.

The Count of Monte Cristo
A great story at a very good price....so cheap and read beautifully. The reader has a voice which is so easy to listen to and keep you interested. Shame all readers are not this good and that prices of other e-books are so expensive.
Great story. Terrible reader
This is a perfect example of how a great story can be absolutely ruined by a terrible reader. Not just terrible recording equipment, but a mumbly voice and a reader that appears to be drunk. A shame.
