The Count Of Monte Cristo




Thrown in prison for a crime he has not committed, Edmond Dantes is confined to the grim fortress of the Château d'If.

On the eve of his wedding, a young sailor named Edmond Dantès is wrongly accused of treason and imprisoned for life in the Château d’If, a reputedly impregnable island fortress. After a daring escape, Dantès unearths a treasure revealed to him by another prisoner and devotes the rest of his life to tracking down and punishing the enemies who wronged him, in disguise as the mysterious Count of Monte Cristo. Set against the dramatic upheavals of the years after Napoleon, Alexandre Dumas’s epic tale of betrayal and revenge is one of the most thrilling and enduringly popular adventure novels ever written.
