Publisher's Summary

An adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy, and forgiveness, it focuses on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune and sets about getting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty.

Considered a literary classic today, The Count of Monte Cristo has become a fixture of Western literature, as inescapable and immediately identifiable as Mickey Mouse, Noah's flood, and the story of Little Red Riding Hood.

Complete and unabridged; a 55-hour epic adventure!

    "Awful narration.."

    Didn't get very far with this one as the narration is awful. It's almost robotic with very strange phrasing. Not for me.

    "Great story, awful narrator."
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He was reading like William Shatner speaks in Family Guy. Pauses where there are none, the intonation way off. Dear.......friendwould..........youlikesome.........wine?

    Story
    "Absolutely awful narrator!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one. The narrator was just awful.


    What didn’t you like about Alan Munro’s performance?

    He read very robotic, as if "Text-to-speach" was enabled, instead of an actual person telling the story.

    "A distracting performance for a good story"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator had unnatural pauses and a cadence which was totally distracting. Perhaps that is why this version was only about two dollars.

    "Narrator mumbles"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I saw a Spanish soap opera based on this book and really wanted to get the real story however it is very hard to understand the narrator


    Would you be willing to try another one of Alan Munro’s performances?

    No he mumbles


    Any additional comments?

    Please get someone else to narrate this wonderful story maybe use actors for the different characters

    Story
    "Non stop fascinating intrigue!"
    If you could sum up The Count of Monte Cristo in three words, what would they be?

    Dumas, great writer.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I amazed at the way the author inter weaved the lives of the several and varied characters. As the reader, I soon became familiar with each of them, but the twist and turns in their lives kept one wanting to read on


    Which scene was your favorite?

    If I had to select a favorite scene, it would be the escape of Edmund Dantes from the horrible dungeon prison Château d'If.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    When I began to listen to this book, due to its length I wondered if I would find the time necessary to listen to it all over a reasonable period. Soon into the book, I found myself making extra time and and couldn't wait to get back to listening to this book. Tried listening to it in bed but would fall off to sleep and have to re-listen to a chapter the following morning.


    Any additional comments?

    When I regretfully completed "The Count of Monte Cristo", I went through withdrawal and wondered which book afterwards I could ever enjoy as much as I enjoyed Alexander Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo.

    "A computer could have read this better"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    A Classic Tale


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    A Classic Tale


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alan Munro?

    Alan Munro's narration was stilted, choppy and in short, plainly horrible. If I had not heard and enjoyed other audiobooks, his performance may have put me off the genre entirely!
