Description

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

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.”

    To the people, call them challenged, who say this isn't the abridged version, understand that when a 500 page book is translated to this (virtual) medium, less words fit on a page then an actual book, and so, by basic science, it takes more pages to fit the same number of words. Please don't give this wonderful story a one-star rating because you can't comprehend spatial relations.

    This is an amazing book, and I have found tha many modern stories are based on this as well, such as the tv show Revenge. It is a thrilling novel and amazing to read on the IPad.
