    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"
    "Timeless classic"
    Overall

    I borrowed an unabridged version of this from the local library many years ago and wanted to own a copy for myself. This wasn't the same narrator, but I liked this one so much better. The pronunciations of the foreign words sounded authentic, even with the narrator occasionally correcting himself. If I closed my eyes I could imagine myself as a child having my grandfather reading to me at bedtime. The story is the original 'revenge is a dish best served cold' example. Dumas is a favorite of mine, his attention to detail borders on obsessive, but adds so much to the story line that no fault can be found. All in all, this is an outstanding value for the money!
