This book was for a Christmas gift. I did not read it personally. It was in very good condition and the transaction went very well.


Trend setter

This book set the standard way back when. However, it is not the best written book - overly simplistic, telling the reader what is happening rather than showing the reader, rather than have the reader experience and feel what is happening. Over all, a great book.


Ships, poison, and philosophy

by Amrita on Apr 4, 2007

When I first started the Count of Monte Cristo, I thought that I was in for a good adventure tale, complete with intrigue, romance, and drama. Almost all the way through the book, I stuck to tthe opinion that the book was satisfying and engaging but not highly thought-provoking. And then in the last few pages I realized how much more the book is. Of course it was entertaining in and of itself, but it also helped me understand human nature a little more. How revenge can quickly spiral out of control, how guilt is relative in many ways, how justice is not necessarily the domain of man, all of these themes are explored in the book. And for that, more than for the wonderful storyline, this book is an important piece of the world's literary history.
