Publisher's Summary

Edmond Dantès, an innocent young sailor, falls into despair when he is arrested on a false charge of treason and thrown into prison without a trial. He learns of his friends' betrayal from the Abbé Faria, an equally innocent prisoner, and plots his revenge following a daring, if nightmarish escape from the Chateau d'If. After becoming a wealthy man, he assumes the guise of the urbane Count of Monte-Cristo and begins to entrap his enemies one by one.

Fantastic but should have been twice as long

Great narrator, would have like to seen a bit more variety.
Good job condensing the story but works better as a refresher than a first time experience.
Length could have been added to help with this but still an overall good refresher on a fantastic book.

Well read.

Well read, but as they noted, abridged. One of my favorite books and authors, usually.

A 50 Hour story squished into 3

Anthony Valentine has a great voice but the story is so heavily abridged that it becomes completely meaningless.

Truncated

This a long story severely truncated. The only positive was wonderful voice and performance of the late, great Anthony Valentine.
