Despite its daunting length around pages , Monte Cristo is a thoroughly enthralling novel and a genuine masterpiece. The plot in its itself is quite extraordinary and almost unbelievable.
Definitely a classic and hard to put down. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Want to Read saving…. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Other editions. Enlarge cover.

Holy shit I did it! View all 16 comments. Nov 17, Michael Finocchiaro rated it it was amazing Shelves: read-in-french , frenchth-c , fiction , classics , favorites , made-into-movie. In the annals of revenge stories, The Count of Monte Cristo has to be at the very top. The betrayal, imprisonment, reappropriation of identity and the final stroke of revenge are so perfectly depicted here that it is breathtaking.
Dumas' finest work besides the d'Artagnan cycle in my humble opinion , there is ne'er a dull moment in this classic of epic proportions. View 1 comment. This book was incredible. I don't even know how much I'll have to say, especially since I've been reading it for ages now I'd definitely listen to more of his work anytime. And the story itself I adore Dumas - he really knows how to spin a yarn.
He writes beautifully, and you can picture every single thing with your mind's eye. And the stories he weaves How things all Wow. How things all tie in together, how things reappear to play another part in the story I read that he wrote this as a newspaper serial like Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov and it amazes me that he could have planned things so far ahead.
And there was constant plot action - whereas TBK was much more periphrastic, much more reflective than active. I would have been riveted to this story had I read it as a serial - so anxious for the next day's newspaper to arrive.
SO good. I kept hoping for one thing but then doubting myself. Dumas really knew how to keep his audience guessing! Who else but a master author could have summed up such a long book - not to mention much of life in general! View all 5 comments. I read this in high school, in the original French, because we had to, but I liked it so much I also read it in English. Even without the movie 5 stars, but different , the story stuck with me His poor heart, so afraid to trust again, so tormented by rage and vengeance.
He will make them pay!! They will rue the day Including the girl he's always loved So much angst! There are many coincidences. Highly improbable, but yet Jolly good!
Profoundly moving. But long. View all 6 comments. It has been while since I reread "The Count of Monte Cristo," but when someone forces me to tell them what my favorite book is, I usually answer with this one.
There's something about this book that draws me in every time I reread it. Dumas' characters in this novel especially the lead character are intricate and multifaceted. I found myself sympathizing heavily with the lead character come on, we all know good people who get screwed everyday because not only does he suffer a monumental wrong It has been while since I reread "The Count of Monte Cristo," but when someone forces me to tell them what my favorite book is, I usually answer with this one.
I found myself sympathizing heavily with the lead character come on, we all know good people who get screwed everyday because not only does he suffer a monumental wrong, the reader is acutely aware of how he pays for it.
His experiences and his thought processes are presented in such a manner that when subsequent events occur, the reader can't help but cheer for the protagonist while fearing for his enemies.
It's a hard duality to create, but Dumas does it perfectly in this book. The most recent movie adaptation was an aberration because it changed the story to something that failed to resemble the novel all in the name of a happy, politically correct ending. I keep meaning to read "The Three Musketeers" but every time I begin, school and work get the better of me.
I read this book in high school and absolutely loved it! It was emblazoned in my mind as one of my favorite books ever! It's funny because then I saw the movie a few times over the last few years and knew that so much was changed from the book.
As I went back to the book over the past few weeks, I realized my mind had totally adopted the "movie" version of this amazing story. What a bummer! I'm so glad I re-read this classic! There's so much more to the story! It's truly an amazing book and a st I read this book in high school and absolutely loved it! It's truly an amazing book and a story full of almost everything: revenge, love, betrayal, loyalty, hope, poisonings, disguises, and ingenius plots!
I really enjoyed this book again and especially appreciated the hope that I felt it communicated. I also enjoyed Dantes' realization that revenge isn't all it's cracked up to be when you really bring sadness and destruction to people's lives who are innocent.
I also enjoyed a comment from someone else on Goodreads that this book is about karma and that what goes around comes around -- a good reminder to us all to live our lives with the most integrity possible! Rereading the first part of the Count of Monte Cristo confirmed my love for this book and for Dumas' writing style, I can't wait to continue with the second part and see what the calm and clever Count has planned for us.

I grew up French, and this was one of the stories I learned young. But holy hell did I struggle to finish it. The first third or so is all set-up.
