About the Author

Introduction by Lorenzo Carcaterra

 

A popular bestseller since its publication in 1844, The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the great page-turning thrillers of all time. Set against the tumultuous years of the post-Napoleonic era, Alexandre Dumas’s grand historical romance recounts the swashbuckling adventures of Edmond Dantès, a dashing young sailor falsely accused of treason. The story of his long imprisonment, dramatic escape, and carefully wrought revenge offers up a vision of France that has become immortal. As Robert Louis Stevenson declared, “I do not believe there is another volume extant where you can breathe the same unmingled atmosphere of romance.”

This has to be one of my favorite all time books. Such description, suspense, emotion. You can't feel completely good about the characters actions but you can sympathize with them, and you can't put the book down. I stayed up until dawn reading a couple of nights in a row. I read the unabridged version, about 1200 pages, worth every page.

This is a very interesting story, but unless you are a heavy reader I would not recommend it, it is extremely long and has a lot of old language.
