Audie Award, Solo Narration - Male, 2009

Dashing young Edmond Dantès has everything: a fine reputation, an appointment as captain of a ship, and the heart of a beautiful woman. But his perfect life is shattered when three jealous friends conspire to destroy him. Falsely accused of a political crime, Dantès is locked away for life in the infamous Chateau d'If prison. But it is there that Dantès learns of a vast hidden treasure. After 14 years of hopeless imprisonment, Dantès makes his daring escape and follows his secret map to untold fortune. Disguised now as the mysterious and powerful Count of Monte Cristo, Dantès seeks out his enemies - and nothing will stand in the way of his just revenge.

Filled with thrilling episodes of betrayal, romance, and revenge, The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the greatest adventure stories ever written.

This story has everything!

This is truly an epic tale of excitement, love, despair, retribution and finally forgiveness. The twists and turns kept me highly engaged from beginning to end. There is much detail but it isn't cumbersome, it's all part of the exquisite plan which brings a man who was at rock bottom up to dazzling great heights. And for me, it tapped into something reasonably primal, how far would you go to avenge yourself? I'm sure we all think about this and thankfully most of us can let it go, but it is somewhat luxurious to spend a little time thinking about what if...
