I read the entire series as a teenager and thought it was the best thing since sliced bread, but since then I have read a few hundred other books, and this series no longer holds up.
Probably not, I may try some of his more recent works though.
Decently well yes, not the best storyteller, but not terrible either.
Read something a little better.
I enjoy John Lee as a story teller, but Dumas's writing style is too long winded for my taste. Listen to an Abridged version of this, I gurantee it will be better. There is far too much detail, and it follows to many story arcs.
After listening to this, I deleted the 3 Muskateer audio books that were on my wish list, I no longer want to listen to Dumas.
John Lee is a good story teller, but there are far better. Michael Kramer and Roy Dotrice are my two favorite male story tellers.
The Count of Monte Cristo story was not worth the 47 hours dedicated to it. This is one of the few instances where I rather enjoyed the most recent movie more than the novel.
