Alexandre Dumas Ú 9 read read & download × E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ú Alexandre Dumas Le Comte de Monte Cristo review ¹ 9 Rth the treasure and use it to plot the destruction of the three men responsible for his incarceration Dumas’ epic tale of suffering and retribution inspired by a real life case of wrongful imprisonment was a huge popular success when it was. Picture this you are nineteen years old with your whole life ahead of you You ve just been offered the job of your dreams And you re about to marry the person you ve loved since childhood When suddenly a couple of jealous men decide to frame you as a Bonapartist a crime which was punished by death or life imprisonment and have you sent away to rot in an island prison I think it s fair to say you d be feeling a touch bitter about the whole ordealThis is what happens to the young Edmond Dantes when he is betrayed at first by men jealous of his career and fiancee then again by a man who sees a opportunity to benefit himself by sending Dantes to his jail cell After spending fourteen years in a gloomy dungeon Dantes finally has a chance to escape and seek revenge on those who wronged him whilst also rewarding those who stuck by him and fought to prove his innocenceI always try to read both positive and negative reviews of books so I can understand why people had a different opinion from my own and the verdict on this from negative reviews seems to fall into one of two categories 1 the book is too long or 2 they were unable to side with Dantes when he sets out with his vengeful aims Personally I agree that The Count of Monte Cristo is several novels in one and I m not surprised that it was originally published in installments That being said though the story itself is fascinating It brings in historical elements and combines them with a great set of fictional characters to make a very rich story There are parts that are sad and parts that are heartwarming and it all adds up to a great balance of the twoAs for the second problem it is my own personal taste that I love a good revenge story I know forgiveness is supposed to be a virtue blah blah and perhaps it doesn t make me a great person that I couldn t shake the hand of the one who d ruined my life Perhaps But I believe Dantes suffered than anyone in this tale even after he had got his revenge And I always did cheer for the likes of Beatrix Kiddo So when the avenging angel struck I was right there with himI think it says something when a 1200 page novel doesn t bore me for a second and The Count of Monte Cristo never once dragged as it took me through a plot spanning many years There are several stories being told throughout and I found all of them interesting Dantes betrayal The Shawshank Redemption style time in prison where Dantes makes a close friend the historical story of Napoleon s return and Dantes search for revenge It s hard not to be enthralled by this complex world and its characters My one complaint is the direction Dantes romantic life took in the end but whatever there are over a thousand pages of awesomeness here and if you have the time to spare for this bookdoorstopperpossible murder weapon you should definitely read itBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube

Spoiler alertFirst make sure you find a copy that is unabridged Most editions in English ARE abridged but usually don t say they are Not sure if this Penguin edition is it s not the one i read Readers generally think of this as a tale of revenge For me it was much deeper I m not a religious person at all but for me this is a book that makes you uestion the existence of God or a god Edmond Dantes is without flaw a truly good person and his life is ruined because a others envy him and b he was the victim of an unfortunate coincidence Even when he escapes prison and finds a monumental treasure it is years before he finds peace I dont think he ever finds happiness The uestions it raises are why are good people so often punished by horrible tragedies when truly bad people are so often able to float through life with all the rewards that this world can bestow The other uestion Dantes spends much of his life after prison seeking the people who tossed into the oubliette not to get revenge but to punish them He believes he is the angel of god and that he has been freed from prison so he can do god s will by punishing these evil men But as he proceeds in his uest he begins to uestion whether any man can actually be the angel of god whether it s a sign of mania or even insanity to think you can possibly know what is god s will In the end evil is punished and it is because of wheels that Dantes sets in motion But I don t think he is ever able to know if he is just another man seeking to ruin other men or if he is in fact the angel of god It s a uestion that as a journalist I try to always remember we are none of us the angel of god All we can do is try to live the best life we can and not decide who deserves to be punished or even ruined

Alexandre Dumas Ú 9 read read & download × E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ú Alexandre Dumas Le Comte de Monte Cristo review ¹ 9 First serialized in the 1840sRobin Buss’s lively English translation is complete and unabridged and remains faithful to the style of Dumas’s original This edition includes an introduction explanatory notes and suggestions for further readin. The Count Of Monte Cristo is the story that teaches us an important moral lessonREVENGE IS FUNI ve said it before I ll say it again Audiobooks are the only way to go if you re not the sort of reader who likes to read all the shitty filler and crunchy dialogue that normally comes with classic booksFor those of you who think that classics are so much better than anything written in your own lifetime please don t take offense I m only talking to the peasants out there like me who prefer action movies with big explosions to Oscar winning stories aboutwell whatever Oscar winning stories are aboutOk so I listened to the unabridged version by Blackstone AudiobooksNarrator John Lee this guy did a FABULOUS jobDuration 471757 holy fuckAnother thing to keep in mind is that this book was serialized in a newspaper This means instead of getting the euivalent of a 2 hour movie you re getting the euivalent of a tv show that ran for 9 seasons or something This thing was the soap opera of its daySo yes There s shit in here that could have easily been chopped outAlso if you ve seen the 2002 movie The Count of Monte Cristo with Jim Caviezel Guy Pearce and young Superman Well then the actual story will come as uite a surprise to you except for the names and general ideas zero things are the same Seriously Both were good but I kind of prefer the move ending if I m being uite honest Still the book had soooo much delicious scheming backstabbing and grifter style revenge than the movie didSo Yeah I guess I m tornOk the gist is that this super nice guy Edmond Dant s who has everything going for him true love wonderful father job promotion gets set up by a few petty people who want various things he has And then the poor dude gets well and truly fucked by random bad luck and a dirty prosecutorAnyway in a truly over the top fun way Ed becomes an expert in everything to exact his vengeance on everyone who wronged him Of course he goes a bit too far and loses himself then gets pulled back and finds himself again But it s all the shit in between that s so much fun to see Plus it all gets wrapped up with a big happy bow by a beautiful 19 year old ex princess at the endLike I mentioned it is an incredibly unrealistic story that unfolds in the wackiest ways possible I was hearing the theme music to Mission Impossible when he was snatching off disguises doling out harmless advice about untraceable poisons and shooting a revolver like he was a sniper with a red dot sight I laughed so hard at the thought of him shooting the numbers on playing cards with such precision that he could turn one number into another Get the fuck out of here with that nonsense Dumas And yetIt was still awesome And so much fun to listen toYeah there s stuff in here that s just a product of its time and doesn t make the transition to modern day very well but on the whole it holds up so much better than a lot of the other classics you might be tempted to read Towards the end I was giving the universal wrap it up sign to Alexandre but I m pretty sure he didn t see me because he dragged the conclusion out a lot longer than neededEven so I m giving it 5 stars for not boring the shit out of me PS I ve heard tell there s an abridged version of this story out there If audiobooks aren t your jam then that could be a viable option if you are interested in reading this but don t have the patience to deal with all the crusty bits that don t need to be there
