Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read
A popular bestseller since its publication in 1844, The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the great page-turning thrillers of all time. Set against the tumultuous years of the post-Napoleonic era, Alexandre Dumas’s grand historical romance recounts the swashbuckling adventures of Edmond Dantès, a dashing young sailor falsely accused of treason. The story of his long imprisonment, dramatic escape, and carefully wrought revenge offers up a vision of France that has become immortal. As Robert Louis Stevenson declared, “I do not believe there is another volume extant where you can breathe the same unmingled atmosphere of romance.”
So far I've read 75% of this book and I'm enjoying, this will be the first book I ever finished reading, I just hope that Alexander Dumas has more like it.🏅🎖🔥💥
I was told I was buying the 544 page version. This is not that!
This is the 500+ page version.
To the people, call them challenged, who say this isn't the abridged version, understand that when a 500 page book is translated to this (virtual) medium, less words fit on a page then an actual book, and so, by basic science, it takes more pages to fit the same number of words. Please don't give this wonderful story a one-star rating because you can't comprehend spatial relations.
