Falsely accused of treason, the young sailor Edmond Dantes is arrested on his wedding day and imprisoned in the island fortress of the Chateau d'If. Having endured years of incarceration, he stages a daring and dramatic escape and sets out to discover the fabulous treasure of Monte Cristo, and to catch up with his enemies.
This is truly a classic for me. I love revenge stories and added the bonus of a historical setting and I'm a goner.
A great mixture of drama, romance, thriller and a pirate tale thrown into the mix.
Definitely a keeper.
