love this book
I suspended my subscription to this book only because I couldnt get enough of it fast enough and started reading the real book. I thought it was going to be dry but it has turned out to be one of the best books I've ever read!
I read The Count of Monte Cristo many years ago and it was also and still is the best book I have ever read.

I'm interested in reading an untranslated version of this -- original french version. Do you know of any other book sites that might have it on-line? Thanks.
P.S., currently reading Art of War and King Lear. You?

I read this book years ago, and am getting ready to read it again! It has a great mix of every element (adventure, romance, tragedy, etc.)

I expected Count of Monte Cristo to be dry too, and was surprised that it's not.
But it is very very long.
I'm reading it now for the first time. I became interested in reading it after watching V for Vendetta, where they watch the movie Count of Monte Cristo ("find your own tree"), and I was interesting in finding the connections between the book and V for Vendetta. I plan to watch the movie version of Count of Monte Cristo later. What version of the movie is the best?
I'm at the part in the book where Franz goes to the Carnival with Fernand's son Albert and Dantes. I hope Dantes and Mercedes get back together.
