The Count of Monte Cristo
The Count of Monte Cristo | Alexander Dumas
The Count of Monte Cristo is an adventure novel by French author Alexandre Dumas. It is one of the author's most popular works, along with The Three Musketeers. 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 and islands in the Mediterranean during the historical events of 1815-1838. It begins from just before the Hundred Days period (when Napoleon returned to power after his exile) and spans through 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. In addition, it is a story that involves romance, loyalty, betrayal and selfishness, shown throughout the story as characters slowly reveal their true inner nature. The book is considered a literary classic today. According to Luc Sante, "The Count of Monte Cristo has become a fixture of Western civilization's literature, as inescapable and immediately identifiable as Mickey Mouse, Noah's flood, and the story of Little Red Riding Hood.

It is done, it is finished!! The first couple of hundred pages I was reading, then I switched to audio because it got a little boring, and then it picked up again! Now I can say that I actually enjoyed this, even though I've found the Count's character annoying at times, but this really was an adventure, and I did tear up a few times. It took me two years, but I did it! @Amiable #chunksterchallenge I'm gonna go celebrate this a little! 🎉🥳🥳

I finally finished this classic adventure story, after working through it slowly the entire year. I found the Penguin Classics Robin Buss translation to be very good (compared to the Project Gutenberg one).

#BookSpinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

Ann_Reads Nicely done! 🙂 This has been on my to-read list for a long time, but it just seems too.daunting. My husband is convinced I'll like the story though. Thanks for the translation recommendation. 3w

kwmg40 @Ann_Reads @SamAnne A friend of mine started with the Gutenberg translation and complained that a couple of passages sounded very strange. We compared the two translations to the original French and the Buss was definitely superior. I'm a big fan of PG and public domain books but in this case, the Buss was worth paying for. 3w
kwmg40 @zezeki @RkaVlgyi My book club at work decided to read it over the year, and it helped to break it up into monthly chunks. Sometimes the action got exciting enough that I really wanted to read ahead! 3w

I really need to learn to stop reading my childhood favorites and just let them be. I didn't love this this time around. Too much going on and not in a good way but in a "meet the word count" way. I am sad.

To raise my spirits, I have included a pic of Henry Cavill from the CoMC film he was in. So young then. This is apparently one of the times that I prefer the movie over the book.

TheIndianBookworm It's interesting to know your perspective, even I liked it as a child. I wonder what would my opinion be now! 4w
CoveredInRust Part of me wants to tell you to let that memory live and part of me wants to know if you'd have a similar reaction 🤣🤣🤣 If you ever do reread, I hope to catch your updates on it! 4w

I decided to give an audiobook for this one a try. While I find the story interesting, for some reason it was tiring to read it in ebook form. So, I'm spending this rainy Saturday afternoon under a blanket with an audiobook. Also, this is the first time I'm alone in our apartment since we moved three months ago. 📚📚📚

It‘s been a decade since I first read this & it was just as powerful the 2nd time around. The scenes with Dantes in prison remains some of my favorite from any book. I love his relationship w/the Abbe. The whole plot is an incredible example of patience & slow-burning revenge. There‘s a lag in the middle where the plot gets distracted, but other than that it‘s incredible start to finish. When it all comes together it‘s hard not to cheer out loud!

📖 I‘m trying to read more classics! My favorite is The Count of Monte Cristo, because it has everything! My least favorite so far has probably been Moby Dick (it‘s starts out great, and you get sucked in and then they bore you to death for a very long while)

📖 There are lots I want to read. Right now David Copperfield is calling my name.

A man of many masks, the Count of Monte Cristo teaches one to go through life with some degree of humanity and to remain humble to some degree. This masterpiece incessantly kept you on edge all throughout 1243 pages of pure ingeniousness. The ending was prolific and tied the rest of the novel together very nicely. My only criticism comes not from the novel itself but the publisher. I purchased this novel brand new and the etching is already worn.

A well-deserved classic not previously read (although I loved The Three Musketeers). Easy to dismiss such stories as cliched until you recall this was written 200 years ago. It was the trailblazer! Such books have remained popular for good reason - interesting characters, epic plots and beautiful writing.
This narrator was soothing - had to rewind several times as his voice was a successful cure for my insomnia.

‘The Count of Monte Cristo‘ was mentioned in the last two books I read. I now realize how frequently it‘s referenced in pop culture and how much influence it still has. I wish I‘d read it sooner. As you probably know, it‘s an adventure saga of revenge featuring the original most interesting man alive. Written as a serial in 1844, today it would be a multi-book series. In other words, it‘s long. Take it in parts if need be, it‘s worth it!

How could anyone not love this story of pain, passion, and revenge? A wonderfully constructed story, which makes the reader‘s heart break for Edmond. You love him when he‘s being generous and even more when he‘s being cruel, because you understand him so well. A long read, but one I could not recommend highly enough.

3.5 ⭐️ While the book is really well done and the book is well written, most of it just kinda flew by and I really didn‘t know for the most part what was going on, as it felt convoluted and after leaving the Chateau, I didn‘t know where most of the story took place; seemed to be all over the place. Probably will use something like Sparknotes next time #2021 #classic #literature #chunksterchallenge2021 #bookreview #bookstagram #fiction

mandarchy I had to take notes while I read this, but I loved it. At the time I read it, Melrose Place was the big thing on TV. I figured they were the same thing. 2y
