    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 HA Seriously, this was an awesome book I am not a big fan of the Classics 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...

    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 bitdrawn 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 f Over 1200 pages of suffering and revenge I enjoyed it I did not like it quite as much as some ...

    They don t write novels like this any That s because they make television drama series and soap operas instead To my mind, this novel is the 19th Century equivalent of a long running and compelling television series I can readily imagine being a reader of the Journal des D bats between August 1844 and January 1846, impatiently waiting for the next installment of Le Comte de Monte Cristo to be published, eagerly discussing each installment with my friends around the 19th Century equivalent They don t write novels like this any That s because they make television drama series and soap operas instead To my mind, this novel is the 19th Century equivalent of a long running and compelling television series I can readily imagine being a reader of the Journal des D bats between August 1844 and January 1846, impatiently waiting for the next installm...
