Description

The victim of a miscarriage of justice, the Count of Monte Cristo is fired
by a desire for retribution and empowered by a stroke of providence. In his
campaign of vengeance, he becomes an anonymous agent of fate. The sensational
narrative of intrigue, betrayal, escape, and triumphant revenge moves at a
cracking pace. Alexandre Dumas' novel presents a powerful conflict between good
and evil embodied in an epic saga of rich diversity that is complicated by the
hero's ultimate discomfort with the hubristic implication of his own
actions.

"Falsely imprisoned on his wedding day by the man who wants his beloved, Edmond Dant, a merchant sailor, manages to escape. He becomes the mysterious count and plots revenge on the three men responsible for his misery.
