    The Count of Monte Cristo is an adventure novel by Alexandre Dumas.

    Published in 1844, it is often considered one of the great thrillers of all time and, along with The Three Musketeers, Dumas' most popular work.

    Falsely accused of treason, the young sailor Edmund Dantes is arrested on his wedding day and imprisoned in the island fortress of the Chateau d'If. After staging a dramatic escape, he sets out to discover the treasure of Monte Cristo and catch up with his enemies.

    Barnabas' Daughter says: "Incredible value"
    "Great book... pretty old recording"
    Overall

    This review is about the recording quality, not about the book. It is obvious that this recording is very old. While the narrator does a good job it is not up to par with today's high quality recorded books. The audio of the narration is not as "close up" as more recent audio books sound. You can also clearly hear pages turn throughout the audiobook. Also the narrator messes up throughout the book and corrects himself. So while he does a good job reading it, it has more of the feel like your grandpa reading you a story next to a warm fire. Not necessarily a bad thing, but not the quality of some of the newer audiobooks out there.

    John Henry Newton (1725 - 1807) was an Englishman, Anglican clergyman, and a former slave-ship captain. He was the author of many hymns, including "Amazing Grace". Here is a fascinating, colorful, and historically significant portrait of the slave-trader-turned-Christ-follower.

    Douglas says: "Inspiring Story..."
    "Very insightful"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed listening about the life of John Newton. He has a powerful story and a very interesting life. I learned a lot about him through this audiobook, though there were a few times where it felt a little drawn out (especially near the middle once he became a pastor).
