A swashbuckling tale of daring, betrayal, injustice and
redemption, it will keep you up reading! 
Edmond Dantes’ dreams are coming true, he has attained the position of
Captain and is about to marry the woman he loves.  Then everything changes.  Falsely accused of being a Bonapartist, he is
condemned to life in prison.  Learning of
a treasure on the Isle of Monte Cristo, he vows to escape.  Both the world and Dantes have changed much
during his years in prison.  The writing
is brilliant, the characters vividly brought to life, and the story zestfully
full of intrigue and action.  This is a
book you will reach the end and be sorry there are not more pages!

— Deon Stonehouse
