I don't know because I did not read the printed one however, I think that for such a book the audio version might be better
When the count understands that he is not as strong as god and no matter how carefully he plans his revenge he could not foresee all the consequences of his action and he start to regret.
Yes I have listed to a few books that were narrated by him. They are all good, he is just a very good Narrator my favorite so far.
The story and the characters were wonderfully developed. You hated the the evil doers and rooted for the good guys.
Too many characters to pick just one.
The parting of Edmund and Mercedes.
love, loss and revenge
Nortier, he must communicate through his eyes
It was great
Yes, but it is long and the dialogue is a little tedious
A lot of people will like this book. The story has potential but it goes on forever in such detail that I got tired of it.
Not at all.
The narrator actually wasn't bad. He did very well
It did. I think a lot of people would like it. The story at many times got very good but then it got boring again. It was just too long
At one point I had to go online and read the plot becasue I could not figure out the caracters. It was hard to remember who was who. It was easier to follow after that. I made sure I did not find out what happend at the end so it was still a surprise. I am looking forward to renting the movie because I thought it was a pretty good story but it lost me and if it wasn't for the fact I wanted to say I had read it I would have given up on it.
Exciting, Suspenseful, Intricate
The story is so intricate, but every moment and word is completely necessary. Dumas does a great job making the plot strong and exciting, while still allowing the reader intimate connection with the characters.
Listened to 3 Musketeers. John Lee does a fantastic job of pronouncing the french, distinguishing the voices and not making female characters sound stupid. One of the best audiobook readers I've ever heard. Highly recommended and sought after.
Definitely cried through the last few chapters.
Favorite book ever. Best audiobook version.
I would absolutely recommend this to anyone I know who likes audiobooks. It's not a great way to start listening to audiobooks since it is so long (it took me about a month of listening to hear it all). The Count of Monte Cristo is a book I had always wanted to read and always been a bit intimidated by the length. The performance of this book in this recording makes it almost episodic - John Lee's voice carries you through even the action-less parts. It makes it easy to pick up and put down and remember exactly where you were. It definitely takes longer than actually reading the book yourself, but it feels a breeze. And the story is amazing, one of my favorite reads ever.
No, as I would have to be either an insomniac or Mr. Smith of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington to manage that.
I just began listening to audible books on the drive to and from work. This book not only keeps me awake on my drives but I'm so interested in the story that I find myself sitting in the car a few more minutes even if I've arrived at my destination. The narrator John Lee does a great job at doing different voices for different characters. Highly recommended.
Ok, I took a chance on this, I usually pick easy books that entertain my brain the way cake would entertain my tongue, so I was a little worried this would be too heavy.
Well it was everything it was promised to be, entertaining and engrossing, with characters to love and hate (often at the same time) and a story that kept you wanting to know 'what will happen next??!'
I did go back & forth over whether to give the story 4 or 5 stars because it had one spot that dragged a bit (but only 1, in a story that goes on for 47hours) and the author tells the story by switching the point of view from character to character and that can take some getting used to.. but I decided it has to be 5 stars because I loved almost every bit of the book & was missing it for DAYS after it was finished.
Take a chance and buy this book it really is a great story. To go back to my previous analogy, my usual books would be like supermarket birthday cake on my tongue but this is like a rich layered french torte, still a delicious sugary treat, but sooo much more :D
Too many to list.
Passion. Color. Depth.
When Dantes watches from afar as the new Farron returns to port.
I loved this book, it ranks up near the top, I'd say about third currently based on my current Audible library.
My favourite bits of the book were those that revolved around real historical events, such as Napolean's return and the history of the family who hid the treasure.
I love fiction that revolves around real events, such as the Metal Gear Solid franchise.
I really liked how The Count was controlling events.
This book had loads of great scenes, but my favourite was where Caderousse tried to break into The Count's house in Paris, he was greated by Abbé Busoni. Then went outside and got stabbed.
It took a while for me to get into this book, but when The Count got to Paris I didn't want to stop listening.
I've added Andre's other main books to my wishlist.
John Lee gave a great performance here!
