Would you consider the audio edition of The Count of Monte Cristo to be better than the print version?
Nice synopsis of a very, very long book. Great narration and characterization. It really held my interest. I listened to it in a single sitting.
What did you like best about this story?
Entertaining and fast moving.
Have you listened to any of Tim Pigott-Smith’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I would like to listen to some of Tim Pigott-Smith’s other performances.

It good but I wasn't the version I was looking for, I was looking for the abridged version with the intro by Roger Celestin. I don't think audible has it l, but it would be a huge help if it was. It's a book that teens uses in their British Literature class like me so many would finish it helpful if it was read to them as they followed along. I have a reading disability where I can't understand older pieces of literature unless it's read to me, because otherwise I'll get confused and lost.
This is a very good book. It's just not what I'm looking for.
I know this book is supposed to be a classic, but having read it for the first time I dont understand why. Maybe in its time it brought something new to the art of storytelling, I just dont know, but it seemed like a really bad soap opera.

This adaptation is very good and gives plenty of roundness to the character of Dantes (who can seem a little tow dimensional in some versions). The narrator is excellent.
