Publisher's Summary

On the eve of his marriage to the beautiful Mercedes, having that very day been made captain of his ship, the young sailor Edmond Dantès 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.

Of all the "masked avengers" and "caped crusaders" in literature, The Count of Monte Cristo is at once the most daring and the most vulnerable. Alexandre Dumas (père), master storyteller, takes us on a journey of adventure, romance, intrigue, and ultimately, redemption.

    "Brilliant! Wonderful!"

    I find myself at the end of this reading feeling sad and dissatisfied. The book is extremely well written. I hung on every word. The vocabulary stimulated. The story was beautifully woven and cleverly written.

    It is the plot itself that hurts and I believe it is because it too well reflects the nature of man and the reality we live in. I wanted Edmond to end up with the love of his youth, to sail off happily ever after in an ending that warms the heart. I wanted everyone to find forgiveness and to sing kumbaya I suppose.

    There were some very powerful moments. It was a happy ending but I suppose it is true that you cannot find happiness without suffering misery.

    Everyone got what they deserved but I wanted everyone to be happy.

    That is why I am sad. One man dead. One man insane. One man forgiven. It wasn't vicious enough for vengeance or happy enough for forgiveness. It is too much like real life where everyone does what they can and leaves the rest to God.

    I loved it. I wanted to cry for Mercedes and poor Edward. I don't feel like all the ends were tied up. Too many characters entered the scene only to leave as abruptly. It reminds me of my own life and it is that much better for it.

    Bill Homewood is a fantastic narrator! I can't believe how much I loved his performance. Some parts sounded like they had been recorded after the fact but I didn't mind.

    "Amazing tale, stupendous reading!"

    This is the first time I've read this book, so it was all new to me. I enjoyed the story so much I have diligently listened to 53 hours of narration over 2 1/2 weeks. The most amazing part was listening to this reader identify with each character with what seemed like infinite accents and voices! He made this story fabulous!

    "Dumas loves to hear himself talk. I love it too!"

    He is the (Steinbeck + Faulkner) x 2 of French literature. Performance is brilliant as well. 52 hours well invested.

    "Awesome! The Best"

    Loved every minute of it. The narrator did a wonderful job. Great story and a perfect ending. So well written it can only be enjoyed best as a book and never fully realized in film.

    "Absolutely incredible book."

    Worth every second. The movie is nothing like the book, almost a completely different story. Well worth the read.
