Overview

The Count of Monte Cristo (French: Le Comte de Monte-Cristo) is an adventure novel by French author Alexandre Dumas (Alexandre Dumas père). It is one of the author's most popular works, along with The Three Musketeers. He completed the work in 1844. Like many of his novels, it is expanded from plot outlines suggested by his collaborating ghostwriter Auguste Maquet.
The story takes place in France, Italy, islands in the Mediterranean, and in the Levant during the historical events of 1815–1838 (from just before the Hundred Days to the reign of Louis-Philippe of France). The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book. An adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy and forgiveness, it focuses on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune and sets about getting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty.
The book is considered a literary classic today. (Wiki)

I thought this book would be hard to follow, because it was so old. But it isn't. It's better than I expected it to be.

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
