Imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, Edmond Dantes spends fourteen bitter years in a dungeon. When his daring escape plan works he uses all he has learnt during his incarceration to mastermind an elaborate plan of revenge that will bring punishment to those he holds responsible for his fate.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The greatest of escape stories" * Guardian *
"What makes The Count Of Monte Cristo such a superior story is that revenge is not the only emotion driving the plot... it is an almost perfect story - also in the mix are love, friendship, jealousy, faith, education, snobbery and class" * Sunday Express *
"The Count of Monte Cristo sustained my sanity and my life. It is a beautiful book. Incarceration coupled with interrogation can play cruel tricks on the mind and many are driven to suicide.The book taught me to hope when I was living at my mental limits" -- Zhuang Zedong, former world table tennis champion and the greatest sportsman in China's history * The Times *
"One of the most romantic of all novels" * Mail on Sunday *
"The Napoleon of story-tellers" * Washington Post *

“Fantastic”

The Count of Monte Cristo is my favourite book. It certainly is not a short book but do not allow that to put you off. It is packed with adventure, revenge, jealousy and romance. It was a couple of years ago that I... More

“The Count of Monte Cristo”

“Derring Do aplenty”

All too often classics are written off as something that you have to read as part of a school assignment, this is the book I direct people to when they come up with this argument.
This is in my top ten favourite... More
