Publisher's Summary

After fourteen years of wrongful imprisonment, merchant sailor Edmond Dantès escapes his grim island fortress. With the promises of youth erased and his betrothed now married to someone else, Dantès lives for one purpose: revenge. Thanks to a benevolent prison confidante who reveals the location of a hidden treasure, Dantès buys his way, unrecognized, into society. Adopting a new identity as the Count of Monte Cristo, he sets out to destroy the rivals who framed him for treason. But the count’s obsessive quest could have irrevocable consequences for the innocent - and for himself.

What unfolds is an epic tale of breathtaking intrigue and righteous retribution from Alexandre Dumas, the nineteenth-century master of high adventure.

Revised edition: Previously published as The Count of Monte Cristo, this edition of The Count of Monte Cristo (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Intriguing classic with perfect narration!

Guy Mott has with this performance become one of my favourite narrators. Works at normal and 2x speed for me and was a pleasure to listen to.

Poorly performed

Would not recommend this version. I found the performance both hammy and odd. Making a dated book hard to engage with.
