Count of Monte Cristo (Abridged)

Alexander Dumas

Wow! This was gripping, well told, fascinating and almost perfect. The way it was told just sucked me in. A man is unjustly accused and throught several people betraying him, ends up in a prison left to die. Befriends another prisoner, escapes, gets a fabulous treasure and returns to wreak his vengeance. The emotions portrayed were so good, so true. The only thing I didn’t like is that one of his vengeances is explained almost as a sidenote and you never really find out what happened. But other than that, awesome. If I couldn’t read another book this year, this one would be the perfect one to end on. Incredible!

    Always loved this book – very long read but well worth it. If you haven’t read his d’Artagnan Romances – they’re all great. Cheers, Brian
