    Revenge is a dish best served cold And unabridged And translated from the French by Robin BussThe greatness of this book can be illustrated by the following simple equations Whereas the majesty of the Count of Counting added to the deliciousness of a Monte Cristo sandwich from Bennigans still does not overmatch the inherent kickass value of the Dumas novel which is it can therefore be said greater than the sum of its parts both obsessive compulsive The Count and mouth wateringly fattening of Monte Cristo Similarly The coolness of Batman once introduced into the equation thus balances the scales probably because the Count of Monte Cristo character is equal parts Wealthy OCD Recluse Delicious Sandwich um metaphorically and Batman like avenger QEDI don't know how I can be any clearer Facebook 30 Day Book Challenge Day 16 Longest book you've read

    Re Read on audio and still on my favorites list ❤️ALL THE FREAKING FEELSI never in a million years would have thought I would love this book I never thought I would like something like this book I never thought I would fall in love with Dantes I never thought I would have so much anger sadness despair and happiness in this book I never thought did I SOME SPOILERSEdmond Dantes was a wonderful man of 19 years old He had a woman he loved and was going to marry named Mercedes A loving father And he was going to be captain of the wonderful ship Pharaon The the jealous bastards or just bastards in general ruined life for Dantes 1 Danglars2 Fernand3 VillefortI hate these men with such a passion I just wanted someone to kill their evil selves All of the jerks had a hand in putting Dantes in prison for 14 effing years Yeah For what? For NOTHING Dantes was in such despair he was going to starve himself to death I can't even Then one night Dantes hears a scratching sound and soon realizes someone is tunneling Dantes decides to tunnel as well At some point the two of them tunnel to each other Dantes gets to meet Abbe Faria the mad man so they say in the cell next door Abbe Faria thinks he's tunneling out to freedom but he made a miscalculation But Dantes and Abbe devise a new plan and this takes some years to do all of this tunneling But the Abbe is old and sick and having seizures He's not going to be able to make it so Dantes waits with him He is like another father figure to Dantes And who in the hell but Dantes would wait and not leave his friend Because Dantes is good and kind and loving Abbe Faria is also the one that opens Dantes eyes to who the culprits were that put him in jail Poor Dantes couldn't see this at the time and he couldn't read what we were reading so he had no clue Abbe Faria also tells Dantes about tons of gold and jewels that he has hidden on the island of Monte Cristo He makes Dantes remember everything about getting there and where to find the treasure Unfortunately Abbe Faria dies and it was so sad Dantes was so grief stricken over his friend Dantes decided to leave then as he had nothing else to stay for and he put himself in Abbe Faria's place all wrapped up waiting to be buried Well he doesn't actually get buried but thrown out to sea and luckily Dantes managed to save himself We go on to read of the tale of how Dantes gets to Monte Cristo and soon he is beyond rich and he is so smart and ready to get IT DONE And Dantes doesn't just run off and kill people He's smart He tears down their houses their world without them knowing who he is until the bitter end And all of the riches they acquired while he rotted in jail was disgusting Anyway some people did die but that's of little importance Dantes is also kind to all of the people that were kind to him or tried to help him while he was in jail He's such a wonderful person Yes I know I keep saying that He helps Morrel and his family when they were about to lose everything They even lost the Pharaon but Dantes brings him a new one without Morrel even knowing where the ship came from Dantes gave them money He helped the family even after Morrel was gone I cried and cried at his generosity And to sit and read of all the plans and all of the people crumble The only person to recognize Dantes even with his disguises was Mercedes But she went and married freaking Fernand and had a kid Dantes was friends with Mercedes son but things could never be good for them again And it's so so sad for so many involved Oh and Dantes called himself Sinbad the Sailor and The Count of Monte Cristo Of course I guess if you own a rock and gold and jewels and many other things you can call yourself anything you want I can't sit here and go on and on about the book It's freaking 1276 pages I'm not that good of a reviewer to tell you something good about that many pages Just know THIS BOOK is freaking AWESOME If you have been debating on reading it and afraid of it's size who cares just read it I mean you can take two months or however long to enjoy Dantes and his adventures but don't let the tome bother you It's not boring at all NOT ONE BIT I give it all the stars Sail on dear Dantes ♥MY BLOG Melissa Martin's Reading List

    Spoiler alertFirst make sure you find a copy that is unabridged Most editions in English ARE abridged but usually don't say they are Not sure if this Penguin edition is it's not the one i read Readers generally think of this as a tale of revenge For me it was much deeper I'm not a religious person at all but for me this is a book that makes you question the existence of God or a god Edmond Dantes is without flaw a truly good person and his life is ruined because a others envy him and b he was the victim of an unfortunate coincidence Even when he escapes prison and finds a monumental treasure it is years before he finds peace I dont think he ever finds happiness The questions it raises are why are good people so often punished by horrible tragedies when truly bad people are so often able to float through life with all the rewards that this world can bestow? The other question Dantes spends much of his life after prison seeking the people who tossed into the oubliette — not to get revenge but to punish them He believes he is the angel of god and that he has been freed from prison so he can do god's will by punishing these evil men But as he proceeds in his quest he begins to question whether any man can actually be the angel of god whether it's a sign of mania or even insanity to think you can possibly know what is god's will In the end evil is punished and it is because of wheels that Dantes sets in motion But I don't think he is ever able to know if he is just another man seeking to ruin other men or if he is in fact the angel of god It's a question that as a journalist I try to always remember we are none of us the angel of god All we can do is try to live the best life we can and not decide who deserves to be punished or even ruined

    Picture this you are nineteen years old with your whole life ahead of you You've just been offered the job of your dreams And you're about to marry the person you've loved since childhood When suddenly a couple of jealous men decide to frame you as a Bonapartist a crime which was punished by death or life imprisonment and have you sent away to rot in an island prison I think it's fair to say you'd be feeling a touch bitter about the whole ordealThis is what happens to the young Edmond Dantes when he is betrayed at first by men jealous of his career and fiancee then again by a man who sees a opportunity to benefit himself by sending Dantes to his jail cell After spending fourteen years in a gloomy dungeon Dantes finally has a chance to escape and seek revenge on those who wronged him whilst also rewarding those who stuck by him and fought to prove his innocenceI always try to read both positive and negative reviews of books so I can understand why people had a different opinion from my own and the verdict on this from negative reviews seems to fall into one of two categories 1 the book is too long or 2 they were unable to side with Dantes when he sets out with his vengeful aims Personally I agree that The Count of Monte Cristo is several novels in one and I'm not surprised that it was originally published in installments That being said though the story itself is fascinating It brings in historical elements and combines them with a great set of fictional characters to make a very rich story There are parts that are sad and parts that are heartwarming and it all adds up to a great balance of the twoAs for the second problem it is my own personal taste that I love a good revenge story I know forgiveness is supposed to be a virtue blah blah and perhaps it doesn't make me a great person that I couldn't shake the hand of the one who'd ruined my life Perhaps But I believe Dantes suffered than anyone in this tale even after he had got his revenge And I always did cheer for the likes of Beatrix Kiddo So when the avenging angel struck I was right there with himI think it says something when a 1200 page novel doesn't bore me for a second and The Count of Monte Cristo never once dragged as it took me through a plot spanning many years There are several stories being told throughout and I found all of them interesting Dantes' betrayal The Shawshank Redemption style time in prison where Dantes makes a close friend the historical story of Napoleon's return and Dantes' search for revenge It's hard not to be enthralled by this complex world and its characters My one complaint is the direction Dantes' romantic life took in the end but whatever there are over a thousand pages of awesomeness here and if you have the time to spare for this bookdoorstopperpossible murder weapon you should definitely read itBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube

    Why did no one tell me about this book? I mean seriously I was about a hundred pages in and I wanted to go find my freshman high school English teacher and inflict terrible intricate revenge on her for depriving me of a great book I figured first I could assume a new identity perhaps insinuating myself into her life I'd make her trust me and put all her faith in me and then I would UTTERLY CRUSH HER MWAH HA HA HASeriously this was an awesome book I am not a big fan of the Classics really I usually get very bored very quickly with them especially the Russians I don't know if it's the characters I can't relate to or the writing that puts me off but I try to get through them and my interest drops off abruptly Especially the Russians God save me from the RussiansBut this? This was 1200 pages of concentrated awesome A grand intricate story of vengeance and I do love my revenge stories that I will definitely read again And watching V For Vendetta is a lot fun

    you know the classic question ‘if you were stranded on a deserted island which books would you want to have?’ well TCOMC is my answer without a doubt not only would the 1000 pages which are full of the most masterfully crafted and deceptively clever plotlines known to humanity provide hours upon hours of entertainment but it would also be a massive inspiration to search for hidden treasure i am living for a reality where i sit on my hoard of wealth plan the ultimate revenge against my enemies and wait to be rescued as if my strandedness was my decision all along because thats the kind of self confidence edmond would want for me followed by the inevitable self actualisation that forgiveness patience and hope are the best qualities a person can have this story is definitely in my top five favourite books of all time but edmond dantés is the best character i have ever read i can think of no other character who i have connect to bonded with or empathised for he will always have special place in my heart and on my bookshelf 3↠ 5 stars

    Over 1200 pages of suffering and revenge I enjoyed it I did not like it quite as much as some of the other big classics I have read but it was very good The two things that brought it down a bit for me were It felt a bit drawn out than it needed to be At a couple of points I was ready for Dumas to get to the point Some of the plot was very convoluted While this did lend itself well to the Count's intricate plotting I would occasionally get to a chapter and say Wait what? A few times I tried to reorient myself with chapter summaries online but stopped after it became difficult to avoid spoilers With all the negative out of the way I will say that is was definitely a great book At times it was riveting At others it was clever At pretty much all times it was dark and seemingly hopeless The unabridged is great because it has everything as Dumas wanted it but it does require quite a bit of commitmentFinal judgement A must for those who want to read all the classics but probably a bit much for the causal reader

    The Count Of Monte Cristo is the story that teaches us an important moral lessonREVENGE IS FUNI've said it before I'll say it again Audiobooks are the only way to go if you're not the sort of reader who likes to read all the shitty filler and crunchy dialogue that normally comes with classic booksFor those of you who think that classics are so much better than anything written in your own lifetime please don't take offense I'm only talking to the peasants out there like me who prefer action movies with big explosions to Oscar winning stories aboutwell whatever Oscar winning stories are aboutOk so I listened to the unabridged version by Blackstone AudiobooksNarrator John Lee this guy did a FABULOUS jobDuration 471757 holy fuckAnother thing to keep in mind is that this book was serialized in a newspaper This means instead of getting the equivalent of a 2 hour movie you're getting the equivalent of a tv show that ran for 9 seasons or something This thing was the soap opera of its daySo yes There's shit in here that could have easily been chopped outAlso if you've seen the 2002 movie The Count of Monte Cristo with Jim Caviezel Guy Pearce and young Superman? Well then the actual story will come as quite a surprise to you except for the names and general ideas zero things are the same Seriously Both were good but I kind of prefer the move ending if I'm being quite honest Still the book had soooo much delicious scheming backstabbing and grifter style revenge than the movie didSo Yeah I guess I'm tornOk the gist is that this super nice guy Edmond Dantès who has everything going for him true love wonderful father job promotion gets set up by a few petty people who want various things he has And then the poor dude gets well and truly fucked by random bad luck and a dirty prosecutorAnyway in a truly over the top fun way Ed becomes an expert in everything to exact his vengeance on everyone who wronged him Of course he goes a bit too far and loses himself then gets pulled back and finds himself again But it's all the shit in between that's so much fun to see Plus it all gets wrapped up with a big happy bow by a beautiful 19 year old ex princess at the endLike I mentioned it is an incredibly unrealistic story that unfolds in the wackiest ways possible I was hearing the theme music to Mission Impossible when he was snatching off disguises doling out harmless advice about untraceable poisons and shooting a revolver like he was a sniper with a red dot sight I laughed so hard at the thought of him shooting the numbers on playing cards with such precision that he could turn one number into another Get the fuck out of here with that nonsense Dumas And yetIt was still awesome And so much fun to listen toYeah there's stuff in here that's just a product of its time and doesn't make the transition to modern day very well but on the whole it holds up so much better than a lot of the other classics you might be tempted to read Towards the end I was giving the universal wrap it up sign to Alexandre but I'm pretty sure he didn't see me because he dragged the conclusion out a lot longer than neededEven so I'm giving it 5 stars for not boring the shit out of me PS I've heard tell there's an abridged version of this story out there If audiobooks aren't your jam then that could be a viable option if you are interested in reading this but don't have the patience to deal with all the crusty bits that don't need to be there

    2019 is the year I get to my backlist and re read some of the classics I haven't visited in years It's been over a decade since I last read The Count of Monte Cristo which is easily my favorite classic novel to date Looking forward to taking my time through this one alongside my other reads
