Item description for The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas & Bill Homewood...
For nineteen-year-old Edmond Dantes, life is sweet. Soon to be captain of his own sip, he is also about to be married to his true love, Mercedes. But suddenly everything turns sour. On the joyous day of his wedding he is arrested and--without a fair trial--condemned to solitary confinement in the miserable Chateau d'If! The charges? Faked! Edmond has been framed by a handful of powerful enemies. But why?
While locked away, Edmond learns from another prisoner of a secret treasure hidden on the island of Monte Cristo. Edmond concocts a daring and audacious plan: escape and find the treasure! But it is years later--long after Edmond has transformed himself into the Count of Monte Cristo--that his plan for revenge begins to unfold.
Disguised as the wealthy count, Edmond returns to his native land to find his enemies--and make them pay!

The Count of Monte Cristo Jun 18, 2008
I bought this book for one of my children for a summer reading project. I needed a specific version and was glad I could search this site by ISBN. The book arrived quickly and the price was reasonable. I'm sure other family members will enjoy the book when the projcet is complete.
The 2nd best book ever! Apr 6, 2008
except for the Bible, this is the best. It is the full and undiluted version from the first english translation. read it, learn it,live it. j
Excelent story, short version Apr 2, 2008
The book is excelent reading but please get a different version. This version only has 580 or so pages where as other versions have over 1,300 pages. That means that this version is only half the story. So much gets lost in translation already don't cheat yourself even more.
Very disappointing Feb 1, 2008
Although the story is well known to me, the editing of this audio book was so confusing. I absolutely could not follow it. Too much is cut out.
Count of Monte Cristo Jan 21, 2008
Story has good twists, but there are too many French places and people which makes the audio confusing.
