    On the eve of his marriage to the beautiful Mercedes, having that very day been made captain of his ship, the young sailor Edmond Dant├Ęs is arrested on a charge of treason, trumped up by jealous rivals. Incarcerated for many lonely years in the isolated and terrifying Chateau d'If near Marseille, he meticulously plans his brilliant escape and extraordinary revenge.

    Story

    An epic tale of revenge, The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the most fun books I have read in some time.

    The narration was skillfully performed, and the narrators voice sold me on this version of the book. HOWEVER by the time I finished the book the sound of his mouth had me squirming. He kept making squishy mouth noises throughout the book, which was likely related in some way to the mic.

    Inquisitor Glokta, a crippled and bitter relic of the last war, former fencing champion turned torturer, is trapped in a twisted and broken body - not that he allows it to distract him from his daily routine of torturing smugglers.Nobleman, dashing officer and would-be fencing champion Captain Jezal dan Luthar is living a life of ease by cheating his friends at cards. Vain and shallow, the biggest blot on his horizon is having to get out of bed in the morning to train with obsessive and boring old men.

    Jefferson says: "Violent, Ironic, and Absorbing Epic Fantasy Noir"
    "The book/series Game of Thrones could have been"

    Story

    I really feel that this book/series is what Game of Thrones could have been. It has all of the elements I enjoyed from George Martin's series, with none of the things that made me want to never read a book again as long as I live.

    Joe Abercrombie does a stellar job of getting you interested in a vibrant world full of colorful characters. None of them are perfect, and all of them are as easy to detest as to love.

    If you enjoyed Game of Thrones, or like me you wanted to and just couldn't, then this is the book for you.
