Join Jen's Corner in reading:

The Count of Monte Cristo
By: Alexander Dumas

Oh how I have missed reading the classics! I've had a real itch to get back to them lately. I've never read The Count of Monte Cristo before, so I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone loves about it. My husband, Dave, has agreed to read it with me since it's his favorite book of all time. the latest installment of  my Journey Through The Classics reading list has been turned into a family reading. My Dad is even seriously thinking of reading it with us. I'm going to try and get my brother & sister in on it, too.

If you would like to read The Count of Monte Cristo feel free to join in! I would love to hear what people like or don't like about this classic. A summary of the book is below.

Dashing young Edmond Dantès has everything. He is engaged to a beautiful woman, is about to become the captain of a ship, and is well liked by almost everyone. But his perfect life is shattered when he is framed by a jealous rival and thrown into a dark prison cell for 14 years.

The greatest tale of betrayal, adventure, and revenge ever written, The Count of Monte Cristo continues to dazzle readers with its thrilling and memorable scenes, including Dantès’s miraculous escape from prison, his amazing discovery of a vast hidden treasure, and his transformation into the mysterious and wealthy Count of Monte Cristo—a man whose astonishing thirst for vengeance is as cruel as it is just.

I confess - I've only ever read The Lady of the Camellias by Dumas (which I loved immensely, so I recommend it). But I just can't get myself to read anything else by him at the moment, mostly because I've seen so many movie versions based on famous novels and already know the stories. However, I can say that I love the Dumas's stories (as presented in motion pictures), so I'm looking forward to discussing The Count of Monte Cristo with you. It's my favourite Dumas story.
