This beloved novel tells the story of Edmond Dantès, wrongfully imprisoned for life in the supposedly impregnable sea fortress, the Château d’If. After a daring escape, and after unearthing a hidden treasure revealed to him by a fellow prisoner, he devotes the rest of his life to tracking down and punishing the enemies who wronged him.

Though a brilliant storyteller, Dumas was given to repetitions and redundancies; this slightly streamlined version of the original 1846 English translation speeds the narrative flow while retaining most of the rich pictorial descriptions and all the essential details of Dumas’s intricately plotted and thrilling masterpiece.
Alexandre Dumas’s epic novel of justice, retribution, and self-discovery—one of the most enduringly popular adventure tales ever written—in a newly revised translation.

4.0 The Count of Monte Cristo
The first 60% of this book is...way too long. Sorry, y'all. Yes, it was beautiful writing. Yes, a lot of it did end up being important in the last 40%. Yes, that last 40% does largely make up for the first 60%. But seriously, get an editor! :P I found my mind wandering a lot while I was listening ...

3.0 Ah sweet revenge.
I found this book long and a bit difficult to read. Apparently, I read the abridged version, but I can't imagine what they took out. Anyway, the end made up for the early dragging. The revenge in the end was worth the wait and very clever.
