The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas one of the most famous novels of all times. Probably the best and famous french novel. The Count of Monte Cristo is a delicious novel, full of intrigue, great fight scenes, love, passion, revenge and witty social satire. This novel shows everything what a great author should have, the grandeur of the writing, the tightness of a wonderful plot, filled with subplots, the development of the characters, and the constant magic of combining romance and adventure. This is the greatest french classic novel I have ever read. One of the best romantic novels too.
Young sailor Edmond Dantes, just as his life starts to come together, is wrongfully imprisoned for fourteen years in the dungeons of the Chateau d’If as the victim of a monstrously evil plot to frame him as a Bonapartist. While in prison he makes the acquaintance of one Abbe Faria, who serves as his mentor and teaches him the ways of the world (science, philosophy, languages and literature, and so forth), and also makes him a gift of a fabulous treasure straight out of the _Thousand and One Nights_. How Dantes gets out of prison, and what he does after that.
The Count of Monte Cristo is not small lite novel. Its one of the longest novels I have read and probably the longest romantic novel I have read.This great romantic novel gonna take 3-4 days to finish depending how fast you read. Also this is a book you will want to read without putting the down the book so better start reading it when you have plenty of time like in a vacation. The Count of Monte Cristo might be 1400 pages long, but it never disappoints. Also I like how the story ends a happier ending than I expected. Not many books at Amazon.con gets 334 five star reviews and plus 27 four stars out of a 388 total reviews. It shows how great The Count of Monte Cristo is.
