The Count of Monte Cristo

The Count of Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas,  Robin Buss This is an amazing book and a great story. I had put off reading this book for a very long time due to the sheer size of it and the fact I always have so many books to get through and this seemed like a real time consumer. But it was well worth the wait and the read.

This is one of those books that has been reviewed to death so I am just going to give my own views on how I liked it.

I loved the plot and how the story rolls, the characters are so well developed and believable. At times I did get a little dazed with all the names and all the name changes.

This is an amazing story of revenge and a wonderful insight into parasian life in the 1830s.

I really enjoyed this novel and its a real page turner.
