    If the first volume of Monte Cristo describes in excruciating and delicious detail the fall from grace of the protagonist Edmond Dant s partially based on the true story of a certain Pierre Picaud plots and executes his revenge in one of the most astounding comebacks in the history of literature Evenpowerful than Bruce Wayne s resurrection after having his back broken by Bane or perhaps like the Chicago Cubs battling back from a 3 1 deficit to win their first World Series in 111 years, If the first volume of Monte Cristo describes in excruciating and delicious detail the fall from grace of the protagonist Edmond Dant s partially based on the true story of a certain Pierre Picaud plots and executes his revenge in one of the most astounding comebacks in the history of literature Evenpowerful than Bruce Wayne s resurrection after having his back broken by Bane or perhaps like the Chicago Cubs battling back from a 3 1 deficit to win their first World Series in 111 years, Dant s re invents himself and with a self reliance and violence that recalls somewhat that of Julien Sorel of The Red and the Black, he lays waste and shame to all those who let him down It is an unforgettable story and one I need to reread

    That ending I couldnt stop crying It was epic , tragic, moving, cruel and devastating but beautiful and perfect Exactly what a good adventure novel needs to be The character of Edmond Dantes is one of the best i ever read I loved this story so much Thank you Alexandre Dumas, wherever you are, for creating this piece of art It made me so happy

    That was fucking awesome I can t imagine what it must have been like to read it in serial form when it came out Reading it in the original French over a period of years is probably pretty close to that experience Maybe someday I ll re read it and binge it rather than drawing it out Some of the plot twists made me gasp loudly on the subway while reading The melodrama was just delicious I don t know how I managed to stay unspoiled for my entire life, since I ve been reading classic lit for l That was fucking awesome I can t imagine what it must have been like to read it in serial form when it came out Reading it in the original French over a period of years is probably pretty close to that experience Maybe someday I ll re read it and binge it rather than drawing it out Some of the plot twists made me gasp loudly on the subway while reading The melodrama was just delicious I don t know how I managed to stay unspoiled for my entire life, since I ve been reading classic lit for like 15 years now, but I m grateful for it We watched the movie in high school film class for some reason, and it sucked and was nothing like the book Henry Cavill was in it, though, so it wasn t a total bust What a great book

    Wow squee It s been a while since I read a French book like this read never I just love how everyone talks There is so much emotions and overacting that I can t help but smile and laugh I am a big fan of villain gloating and cool badasses overacting My favorite of those would be when view spoiler Fernand confronts the Count after Albert apologizes Priceless XD hide spoiler They re all so polite too, and it s much better in French with the vous and tu The Count is amazing Wow squee It s been a while since I read a French book like this read never I just love how everyone talks There is so much emotions and overacting that I can t help but smile and laugh I am a big fan of villain gloating and cool badasses overacting My favorite of those would be when view spoiler Fernand confronts the Count after Albert apologizes Priceless XD hide spoiler They re all so polite too, and it s much better in French with the vous and tu The Count is amazing His plan is so damned complicated, and it not only worked, but he was able to modify and adapt it despite other things happening He s smart, cunning and determined to, not kill, but destroy the people who betrayed him It s glorious, and so is he This part was much faster and eventful than the first one That one was setting up Dant s past and all, with a little of the Count at the end, but THIS ONE, HOLY CRAP Even the most boring arc the Valentine Maximillien one wasn t as tedious and was actually entertaining Noirtier is amazing, too I have my head canon that he totally knew something was up when the abb Busoni walked in He couldn t have recognized the Count or Dant s, but they are men forged with the same metal The reveals The Count actually reveals himself quite a lot, and THE REACTIONS HE GETS OH I SO WANTED THAT I don t think I would ve given this five stars if he hadn t I LOVE dramatic reveals and, oh, were they dramatic My favourite enemy was Villefort, and I really liked were Dumas went with that particular ending view spoiler I mean, while the Count is ruthless and cold he really was going to kill Albert despite him being his fianc e s son , he s still an human being, and I guess even thehardcore ones won t just snort at the murder of a 9 years old That bit where he goes to the Ch teau d If and to his cell was really something I could relate to hide spoiler Hayd e was cool, too I was pretty neutral to her at first, but at the end I was SO THANKFUL SHE WAS THERE, THANK YOU HAYD E I love the Count He s tall, dark and handsome and rich and smart and overacts all the time and I love it whenever he opens his mouth I totally would ve been worshipping him had I been in this book The writing was just great in general Surprisingly, French hasn t changed much in two hundred years. Sure, everyone s a Britsh Canadian, and nobody would talk or write dialogue like this today, but the descriptions and stuff were very easy to understand The only time my brain turned off was when they spoke of cent cinquante mille francs de rente and other money stuff What s a rente Are they loaning stuff What I guess this can still hold up today I mean, while there are heavy political insinuations every bad character is a royalist, and Dumas father served in Napol on s army, but it s not like that s relevant today , and I guess it could be considered sexist, but only because at the time girls were supposed to be obedient and stuff, and even then theindependant character of Eug nie isn t portrayed as an ungrateful daughter or evil woman or even ugly by the narrator And it s not like the women had small roles in the story One is a major pawn of the Count s, and others makes him change his plan thrice view spoiler Merc d s, Valentine and Hayd e hide spoiler Overall, I love this and will so read it again Maybe next year or something, to give me time to really forget it and bask in its glory yet again I was about to make a muchsilly phrase, but for cringe sake I didn t My writing style tends to change depending on what book I read

    The Count of Monte Cristo is one of those classics I ve been wanting to read for a long time A few weeks ago I picked it up, only to read the first page, and I was completely hooked I had to continue And I m so glad I did This book tells us the story of Edmond Dant s a young french man with a really promising future Unfortunately, he has some enemies who conspire against him and end up sending him to prison for 14 years When he gets out of prison he s seeking for revenge but he thinks that The Count of Monte Cristo is one of those classics I ve been wanting to read for a long time A few weeks ago I picked it up, only to read the first page, and I was completely hooked I had to continue And I m so glad I did This book tells us the story of Edmond Dant s a young french man with a really promising future Unfortunately, he has some enemies who conspire against him and end up sending him to prison for 14 years When he gets out of prison he s seeking for revenge but he thinks that killing those people isn t enough so he makes a big plan to destroy their lives.I already knew the basic plotline of this book and I knew I was gonna enjoy it But the book surprised me in so many ways After Edmond gets out of prison we follow many different characters and as the story progressed I found myself empathizing with most of them, even some of the villans At some point in the book you really don t know why those characters are important but it all unfolds beautifully in the end The Count of Monte Cristo is a beast of a book but every page is there for a reason If you are interested in this book I completely recommend you to pick it up You won t regret it As for myself, I ll definitely be re reading it in the future

    I happened to read a copy of The Count of Monte Cristo that was published in Estonian in 1987 and in two volumes and since these copies have been on my mother s bookshelves as long as I remember Since the book is a quite long one and I hadn t actually read the original before, I decided to read it as a part of my reading challenge this year as a classic I never made time for before.And it was marvellous I thought I was familiar with the story before I decided to give the original a shot since I I happened to read a copy of The Count of Monte Cristo that was published in Estonian in 1987 and in two volumes and since these copies have been on my mother s bookshelves as long as I remember Since the book is a quite long one and I hadn t actually read the original before, I decided to read it as a part of my reading challenge this year as a classic I never made time for before.And it was marvellous I thought I was familiar with the story before I decided to give the original a shot since I had seen a few movies and I had actually read and re read the adaptation in the illustrated classics series but this book is about so muchthan any of those adaptations make you think it is about You may think it s only about a man finding his revenge, but it s not This book has a gazillion subplots and to be frank, most of it was very new to me Despite the fact that I should ve been familiar with the story, I was not and I can t actually decide whether it s a good or a bad thing I thought I was going to read a book about a man finding revenge against three men who ruined his life I thought I was going to read a book where said man will reconcile with his old flame I thought I was going to read a book about a man who hasn t actually lost his goodness, for lack of a better word, in prison Instead, I got to read an epic story about a bunch of egotistic people who have done nothing but be bad people for the majority of their lives And the man, the hero of the story He wasn t actually there for a big part of the story Sure, his influence and his machinations were there most of the time, but I actually expected to readabout him and his actions and less about these characters whom Edmond Dantes The Count of Monte Cristo influences.Despite the fact that I didn t get what I expected, it was worth every minute of my time because it was intriguing and it even made me shiver of anticipation during the final chapters I highly recommend this one to everyone.This review was first posted HERE

    I ve always wanted to read this book, it intrigued me for a long time I m glad that I finally got to it It feels almost like an accomplishment to have read it I enjoyed it a lot.It is a massive book, but it isn t tedious to read It s divided in a lot of short chapters and the language is surprisingly accessible, considering the period in which it was written The author s remarks made me smile a few times.This book is obviously about revenge, but it made me thinkabout the theme of cont I ve always wanted to read this book, it intrigued me for a long time I m glad that I finally got to it It feels almost like an accomplishment to have read it I enjoyed it a lot.It is a massive book, but it isn t tedious to read It s divided in a lot of short chapters and the language is surprisingly accessible, considering the period in which it was written The author s remarks made me smile a few times.This book is obviously about revenge, but it made me thinkabout the theme of control The main character succeeds to have control over almost everything thanks to money and plotting his environment, other characters, his own emotions He seems to feel like he is a superhuman and other characters view him as such But some unpredictable events happen anyway, it s impossible for him to have control over everything In this view, I felt like the end was too well tied I learned in the preface of this edition that the author was inspired by a news item and created this story around it I feel like he did a really good job of making it interesting The characters were great I found that some parts of this book dragged out a little Considering the way it was originally published, it is to be expected Also, the end didn t feel satisfactory to me Anyway, it was a fun read and I think people shouldn t be discouraged to read it because of its length
