I had never read an unabridged version of this novel, and was surprised by the depth and complexity in this complete edition. It's a dark, sometimes meandering tale that just keeps you guessing. The detail is immense, often to the point of minutiae, yet it doesn't seem to bog the reader down, but rather contributes to your sense of immersion. It's more a psychological work than a thriller like his Musketeers books. Great, long, compelling read.

The book is phenomenal, but I just wanted to let everyone know that the hard copy version by Random house fell apart. Every 50 pages or so would come unglued and detach from the binding. Reeeeeeaaaaaally annoying.

This story is wonderful. A great read. But read it when you have a lot of time. This one was/is a translation of the original text in French. It was a little hard to get into, but I loved it for the detail it gave me.
I read a German translation that was not quite as 'attached' to the original style. I read that one from the first the the last word in one night. I just could not put it down. The English translation was more detailed and took a 'little' longer to read. It was also twice the volume. It is a great story for the person that believes in justice and revenge, where it hurts the most. At that time in the pocket-book. I loved the story and the author's style. The two translations were quite different, not taking away from the story line, however.
A great story, well written and translated.

I just absolutely love this book, and despite it's length (this is a VERY thick book!), I could definitely see myself reading it again and again. The count is virtually invincible and reminds me of superhero protagonists (I've read that he was the inspiration for Batman) which makes it a relaxing read if you aren't in the mood for tense scenes and the constant fear that something bad is going to happen. The story is immensely satisfying, perfect if you enjoy seeing the characters you dislike get their comeuppance.
This is a great and affordable version of it, and I would highly recommend this edition to anyone wishing to read this story.

Despite the somewhat stilted dialogue this is still a great story! Most people likely know the plot so I won't review that. There is something for everyone: political intrigue, romance, revenge, and much more. Dumas knew how to spin a good yarn and "The Count of Monte Cristo" is a real page-turner. A great novel for readers of any age!

The introduction to this excellent Modern Library edition says, "The long journey of Edmond Dantes is one that we should all take at some point in our lives." I couldn't agree more. This novel easily ranks among the greatest epics--The Odyssey, Don Quixote, Les Miserables, War & Peace and The Brothers Karamazov come to mind as works of comparable scope and moral grandeur.
My only advice is: set aside some time. With 1500 pages, a complex web of characters (including many with shifting identities) and more than a few dispensible subplots, this unabridged edition is a challenge--albeit a rewarding one.
The novel tackles all the great themes: war, revolution, love, power, money, justice, evil, God. But in a word, it's subject is REVENGE. A good-natured young man of exceptional promise, Edmond Dantes is betrayed by his erstwhile friends, unjustly imprisoned by an ambitious magistrate, and left for dead by the woman he loves. The first three hundred pages of the story are fast-paced and almost cinematic, from the wrenching scenes of betrayal and imprisonment, down to Dantes' miraculous escape and rebirth as a remarkable new man, the Count of Monte Cristo.
The Count is part 007, part Stoic philosopher. He'll drop you in a duel, match wits with you in the salon, concoct potions from recipes in a dozen languages, be in three places at once, with three different identities, and exercise a kind of foresight and control over human events that we normally associate with gods and conspiracy theories. Oh yeah--and he's loaded, too.
Dantes burns with a desire for revenge, but it's an entirely different sort than the Clint Eastwood/Charles Bronson variety.

This is honestly one of the greatest novels I have ever read. I absolutely loved this book. I could not put it down! This is a must read for anyone.When I first started into this novel, I had in my memory the 'movie' that was made for the big screen. So of course, I expected the book to be very similar to it. Well, I was very wrong! Other than Edmond Dantes being betrayed by his 'friends' and finding the treasure, this book takes on a different route.
Believe me, the book is much more superb. The way the Count exacts his revenge is astonishing. I cannot fathom how Dumas came up with such a scheme. At times, one cringes for the those who wronged the Count.
This book made me laugh and cry. There are many poignant moments throughout the book that make you feel good. Anyone who says that Dumas is not up there with the 'classic' writers, does not know what they are talking about. This book is rich in dialogue, mystery, suspense and storyline. All in all, this is an amazing classic, and I recommend it to anyone wanting a good read.
