In The Count of Monte Cristo, Alexandre Dumas portrays the terror of a life sabotaged and the depths a man can sink to in pursuit of revenge. Framed as a Bonapartist traitor by a trio of conspirators, Edmond Dantès is confined to life on an island prison. On the edge of madness, his sanity is saved by an elderly prisoner’s stories of a hidden treasure. After a death-defying escape, Dantès vows to find the treasure and with it, bring vengeance to the three men responsible for destroying all he holds dear. But can Dantès bring just retribution without losing his soul?

  • Incredible reading experience

    I’m so glad I went into this book blind, and stuck with it through the slow parts. After spending the last 18 days with these amazingly complex and well-developed characters, I feel empty having finished it. This is an epic story that culminates with the most enthralling and satisfying conclusion I’ve ever read. The ending is bittersweet but hopeful. If you are thinking about reading this book, seriously just do it.
