Product Description

Remade into movies, shortened for TV, and adapted for younger readers, not many have actually read the full Count of Monte Cristo. Well-worth the effort, this lively translation is as riveting a tale now as when it was first published. Though innocent, Edmond Dantes has been framed and thrown into prison, where he meets Abbi Faria, who tells him where to find a hidden treasure. After escaping and using various disguises, the newly-rich, newly-titled Count of Monte Cristo finds himself accepted into the highest levels of society and able to put into action his plan of revenge. 1276 pages, softcover, endnotes and introduction included.

Publisher's Description

"On what slender threads do life and fortune hang"

Thrown in prison for a crime he has not committed, Edmond Dantes is confined to the grim fortress of If. There he learns of a great hoard of treasure hidden on the Isle of Monte Cristo and he becomes determined not only to escape, but also to unearth the treasure and use it to plot the destruction of the three men responsible for his incarceration. Dumas’ epic tale of suffering and retribution, inspired by a real-life case of wrongful imprisonment, was a huge popular success when it was first serialized in the 1840s.

Robin Buss’s lively English translation is complete and unabridged, and remains faithful to the style of Dumas’s original. This edition includes an introduction, explanatory notes and suggestions for further reading.
