Overview

A NOVEL WITH DRAMA AND ADVENTURE…BUT THE CENTRAL THEME IS REVENGE!!! A GREAT READ!
The story takes place in France, Italy, islands in the Mediterranean and the Levant during the historical events of 1815–1838 (from just before the Hundred Days through to the reign of Louis-Philippe of France). The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book. It is an adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy and forgiveness.
During his fourteen years imprisonment in the Château d'If, Dantes befriends the Abbé Faria, ("The Mad Priest"), a fellow prisoner trying to tunnel his way to freedom, who claims knowledge of a massive treasure and continually offers to reward the guards well if they release him. Faria gives Dantès an extensive education. Faria also explains to Dantès how Danglars, Fernand, and Villefort would each have had his own reasons for wanting Dantès in prison, out of circulation. After years of friendship, and knowing himself to be close to death, Faria tells Dantès the location of the treasure, on Monte Cristo. When Faria dies, Dantès uses his corpse to stage an escape to a nearby island, and is rescued by a smuggling ship. After several months of working with the smugglers, he goes to Monte Cristo. Dantès fakes an injury and convinces the smugglers to temporarily leave him on Monte Cristo, then makes his way to the hiding place of the treasure. After recovering the treasure, he returns to Marseilles, where he learns that his father has died in poverty. He buys a yacht, hides the rest of the treasure on board and buys both the island of Monte Cristo and the title of Count from the Tuscan Government.
Disguised as the rich Count of Monte Cristo, takes his revenge on the three men responsible for his unjust imprisonment: Fernand, now Count De Morcerf and Mercédès's husband; Danglars, now a wealthy banker; and Villefort, now married to his second wife and living in Paris. The Count surfaces first in Rome. And so starts the story of revenge…..!

    This book was outstanding. Its written so well that you never want to but the book down. This book is written around a man named Edmond Dantes he had just came home from a long deployment. He was welcomed back to his father, his lover mercedes and a new rank as captain as the Pharon. He had it all until courtesy of jealousy from his friends ruined it all and got him thrown into the prison the Chateau D'If. After he was in here for many years till he was able to escape. He then encountered many adventures along the years. He was determined to get revenge on the ones who got him thrown in jail and that is just what he did. Since no one recognized him since he was many years older from when they first new him he was able to be a different person, he was now The Count of Monte Cristo. This is a really well written book, once you start reading it you don't want to stop. This book is recommended to anyone who wants to read a book that won't disappoint them and makes them want to keep reading. -Nirvana Almada
