The Count of Monte Cristo

By Alexandre Dumas
509 pages


VERY exciting. I though it was going to be boring, but I finished it in 2 days because I couldn't put it down! It was WAY better than the movie, and I really enjoyed it. A murder mystery, love story, vengeance, cunning, amazing book. It is a required high school novel

Edmond Dantes is a lowly sailor, with a father who loves him and a beautiful fiance. When everything finally seems to be falling in line for once in his life, he is framed and sent to Chateau d'If , a horrible prison, where he stays there for 14 years. He wants nothing more than revenge on his enemies and his loved ones back...can he do it?
