Description based on print version record.

"A piece of perfect storytelling." — Robert Louis Stevenson.

First published in 1844, The Count of Monte Cristo remains one of literature's greatest adventures.

Based on actual events, this sweeping historical romance, considered to be Dumas' finest work, recounts the story of Edmond Dantès, a gallant young sailor whose life takes a bitter turn when, during the final days of Napoleon's reign, he is falsely accused of treason and condemned to lifelong imprisonment.

After languishing for many years in a fetid dungeon, he makes his dramatic escape.

In a labyrinthine tale plump with themes of justice, vengeance, lost love, and mercy and forgiveness, Dantès is now free to play out his elaborate plans of revenge on those who betrayed him.
