The narration is second to none. Look no further! I've always heard references to Monte Cristo, but until reading this whole book, never understood them. This story is wonderful, and the level of detail in the writing is superb. My imagination was roaring the entire time, manifesting my idea of what the people, the grotto, the dungeon, the ships and the balls looked like. I didn't want it to end, but alas, I must continue my journey. Enjoy this thrilling ride of suspense and revenge, and wait and hope.
