Publisher's Summary

An adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy, and forgiveness, it focuses on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune and sets about getting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty.

Considered a literary classic today, The Count of Monte Cristo has become a fixture of Western literature, as inescapable and immediately identifiable as Mickey Mouse, Noah's flood, and the story of Little Red Riding Hood.

    "Great story, awful narrator."
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He was reading like William Shatner speaks in Family Guy. Pauses where there are none, the intonation way off. Dear.......friendwould..........youlikesome.........wine?

    "A distracting performance for a good story"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator had unnatural pauses and a cadence which was totally distracting. Perhaps that is why this version was only about two dollars.

    Story
    "Non stop fascinating intrigue!"
    If you could sum up The Count of Monte Cristo in three words, what would they be?

    Dumas, great writer.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I amazed at the way the author inter weaved the lives of the several and varied characters. As the reader, I soon became familiar with each of them, but the twist and turns in their lives kept one wanting to read on


    Which scene was your favorite?

    If I had to select a favorite scene, it would be the escape of Edmund Dantes from the horrible dungeon prison Château d'If.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    When I began to listen to this book, due to its length I wondered if I would find the time necessary to listen to it all over a reasonable period. Soon into the book, I found myself making extra time and and couldn't wait to get back to listening to this book. Tried listening to it in bed but would fall off to sleep and have to re-listen to a chapter the following morning.


    Any additional comments?

    When I regretfully completed "The Count of Monte Cristo", I went through withdrawal and wondered which book afterwards I could ever enjoy as much as I enjoyed Alexander Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo.

    Story
    "Absolutely awful narrator!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one. The narrator was just awful.


    What didn’t you like about Alan Munro’s performance?

    He read very robotic, as if "Text-to-speach" was enabled, instead of an actual person telling the story.

    "Strange intonation takes getting used to"
    What three words best describe Alan Munro’s performance?

    Prolific pregnant pauses


    Any additional comments?

    Alan Munro's delivery is difficult to get used to. He stresses words that shouldn't be stressed, puts lengthy pauses where there should be none, and often uses creative pronunciation. But, this story transcends any mangling that might happen to it, so it was still enjoyable to listen to. Thank goodness I only paid $2 for this one.

    Story
    "Narration disaster"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I agree with the reviewer who said it's like listening to Shatner. The narrator's cadence is just terrible (Edmund....Dantescontinued...scanning...the...horizon.He....). It's incredibly distracting. The Count of Monte Cristo is my favorite novel of all time, and I was hoping to use it as pleasant background sound while I'm at work. Alas, the narrator makes it almost un-listenable. I tried speeding up playback, but it's still terrible. By all means read/listen to the book, but avoid this version.

    "Awful narration.."

    Didn't get very far with this one as the narration is awful. It's almost robotic with very strange phrasing. Not for me.
