On the day of his wedding, Edmond Dantes, master mariner, is arrested in Marseille on trumped-up charges and spirited away to the cellars of the Chateau d'If, an impregnable sea fortress in which he is imprisoned indefinitely. Escaping from the chateau by a series of daring manoeuvres, he unearths a great treasure on the island of Monte Cristo, buried there by a former fellow prisoner who bequeaths to him the secret of its whereabouts. Thus armed with unimaginable wealth and embittered by his long imprisonment, he resolves to devote his life to tracking down and punishing those responsible. This classic nineteenth-century translation has been revised and updated by Peter Washington, with an introduction by award-winning novelist Umberto Eco.

“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

“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
