El Conde de Monte Cristo is the Spanish language adaptation of The Count of Monte Cristo, Alexander Dumas’ triumph from 1844 and one of the greatest swashbuckling stories ever told.
In this epic seafaring adventure, Edmond Dantes’, a.k.a. The Count of Monte Cristo, embarks on a grand quest for revenge after he is betrayed on the eve of his wedding and locked up in chains in a remote island fortress. It makes for riveting entertainment and features one of the most breathtaking prison breaks ever described in literature.
Performed heroically, by a full cast, in Spanish.
The Count of Monte Cristo, an audiobook dramatized in Spanish based on the original story by Alexander Dumas, is one of the most popular novels of love and revenge of all times. It is the story of Edmund Dantes, a young sailor (performed by Luis Jose Santander) who, the day that he was named capitan of the ship the "Faraon" and was planning to marry to his beloved Mercedes, was arrested for treason caused by a conspiracy planned by people that envied him. After many years in prison in the Chateau D'if, he met a priest, the Abbe Faria, who imparted the knowledge and showed him the way to a great treasure. After escaping from prison and already powerful with a great fortune, Dantes assumes the role of the Count of Monte Cristo to execute his revenge.
"Orchestrated music...and sound effects...provide a realistic, inviting tone....The various characters' voices are clear, well paced, and in neutral Spanish. Great for read-aloud sessions." (Criticas)
La novela esta un tanto rapida. Pero si vas en el auto te la pasaras bien. Las esenas de amor de el Conde y su amada estan de risa.

¿Luis XVII? nunca lo mencionan en la obra de A.Dumas ni estuvo en el trono de Francia
La dramatizaci??n se oye viej??sima, y un tanto exagerada... sospecho que ni siquiera es la obra literal de Dumas, sino una interpretaci??n propia de la editorial, y dramatizada. No la recomiendo, despu??s de 1 hora de escucharla, pierdo inter??s...
