What a marathon of a book! Excellent company on my 240km round trip to work in Ireland.
Incredible book, full of intregue, trickey, love, revenge; I was hooked for every second of the 50 hours. And for 95c you would be insane not to try it. One of my favourite classic novels
The Count of Monte Cristo
The most memorable 50 hours and 45 minutes I have ever spent!
