The Count of Monte Cristo

The Count of Monte CristoThe Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book! Loved the prose, the language, just as much as the story. I wish I'd read it long ago but then again I probably wouldn't have been able to appreciate it as much as I did. So many interesting themes in this book and lots of references to historical places and people. I"m adding "The Three Muskateers" to my list. Just like the Count, this Dumas guy is excellent.
