Audio Book Summary

Dashing young Edmond Dant?¿s has everything: a fine reputation, an appointment as captain of a ship, and the heart of a beautiful woman. But his perfect life is shattered when three jealous friends conspire to destroy him. Falsely accused of a political crime, Dant?¿s is locked away for life in the infamous Chateau d'If prison. But it is there that Dant?¿s learns of a vast hidden treasure. After fourteen years of hopeless imprisonment, Dant?¿s makes his daring escape and follows his secret map to untold fortune. Disguised now as the mysterious and powerful Count of Monte Cristo, Dant?¿s seeks out his enemies-and nothing will stand in the way of his just revenge.

Filled with thrilling episodes of betrayal, romance, and revenge, The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the greatest adventure stories ever written.

    Wonderful book that takes you on adventures ranging from a dim prison cell to marvelous palaces, in the midst of it all international political intrigue and conspiracies take place. It's hard to even categorize this novel. Coming of age, political thriller, romance, detective, biographical, travel novel, gothic novel and more. I am, however, disappointed with the narrator. As the book progresses he starts to do more and more accents. Imagine someone from Wisconsin speaking like an Italian pizza maker from Brooklyn speaking for hours on end, it's very distracting, I have to make considerable effort to follow the plot and not focus on his 'funny accents' - super annoying. Also, he didn't anglicize many French words, so if you don't know French, then instead of hearing Pharaoh you hear fahoughhough and it will take you awhile to figure out how various names sound and what they are, as it all sounds like unpronounceable gibberish that doesn't come close to resembling names. I recommend looking for another narrator, but if someone mocking accents for long hours doesn't bother you, then he is otherwise pretty good. I think I hate italian accent after listening to this though.

    I loved this book and the narrator was beyond awesome! There were parts of the book that were a bit slow and way too much information, but the plot kept me interested. The ending had a bit of a moral, even though I found it rather sad.

    Phenomenal. Aside from this being one of, if not the most, incredible works in all of western literature; John Lee’s narration brings it to another level. Couldn’t recommend this enough.

    A lot happened in this book, and although it slowed down a little in the middle and it didn't end the way I expected, I'm really glad I read it. The narration was good, and definitely made the book itself more enjoyable.

    Amazing! It would be wonderful if a force with the will of Edwin Dante could avenge the wicked in our world today. I hated reaching the end of this tale of love
