Revenge. The Count of Monte Cristo is
quintessential masterpiece of Alexandre Dumas. In Edmond Dantes we
find an early materialization of the modern superhero. He is a

prison, he meets a holy man who imparts to him all his wisdom of
languages, philosophy, science and literature. The abbe also
divulges the profound secret of a hidden treasure. Dantes realizes
that with such immense wealth one could do a generous amount of
good for one’s friends. On the other hand, one could also wreak a

Epic Story and Narration
From Christopher Morlock of Phila., Pennsylvania on 6/16/2016.
Finally got around to this classic adventure, after years of hearing folks bang on about it. It's a sprawling tale of intrigue and revenge, and well worth all the praise. I loved BJ Harrison's narration: full of suspense and emotion, he helped me keep track of the many characters. Recommended!

You will be immediately captivated by the tale of young and talented Edmond Dantes who has such a promising future. There are those, however, who are jealous and look for ways to bring him down any way they can. An excellent job by BJ.

I heard the first few chapters of The Count of Monte Cristo as part of a teaser at the end of a podcast. I immediately purchased the full recording and am thoroughly enjoying it.
