Publisher's Summary

Dashing young Edmond Dantès has everything: a fine reputation, an appointment as captain of a ship, and the heart of a beautiful woman. But his perfect life is shattered when three jealous friends conspire to destroy him. Falsely accused of a political crime, Dantès is locked away for life in the infamous Chateau d'If prison. But it is there that Dantès learns of a vast hidden treasure. After 14 years of hopeless imprisonment, Dantès makes his daring escape and follows his secret map to untold fortune. Disguised now as the mysterious and powerful Count of Monte Cristo, Dantès seeks out his enemies - and nothing will stand in the way of his just revenge.

    "good but long"

    Great stroy, I had only known the movies before now. The book is better. However, this copy is very long and full of wonderful detail, but if I we to do it over again, I would have picked a shorter version of the book.

    "A plodding read of excruciating detail."

    Maybe the abridged version is a better "read", but this rendition consists of endless minutia delivered in bravely orated gusto... we preferred to "sit in silence" during our 14 hour ride.

    "Boring melodrama."

    It took me months to listen to this book. I just could not stand the lead character. At the beginning Edmond is cocky, self-righteous and trusting and at the end he's cocky, self-righteous and heartless. He's a total drama queen who'll go from "They will rue the day..." to "Woe is me" at the drop of a hat. And to top it off he's a coward who instead of confronting his enemies hides in the shadows and messes with their lives. Dispicable.

    "I couldn't slog through it!"

    I fully realize that this is a classic, however I recommend an abridged version if you're a student. I loved the movie, but I had to delete the first three parts to try to get to the essence of the novel. A real disappointment, I'm afraid. It's the style of writing of that period:
    mid-1800s.
