Set in post Napoleonic France, The Count of Monte Cristo follows the tale of Edmond Dantes. A naive, nineteen-year-old sailor from Marseilles, Dantes unwittingly falls prey to the plots and machinations of four cruel men. Taken from his fiance on the eve of their wedding, Dantes is imprisoned. During his incarceration, the falsely convicted man learns of vast fortunes hidden on a remote island. After fourteen years of captivity, Dantes makes his escape to the island of Monte Cristo where he unearths his bounty. Not long afterward, French society sees the debut of the wealthy and enigmatic Count of Monte Cristo. Fueled by fortune, unrequited love and a lust for revenge, Dantes reclaims the life that was stolen from him and more. Hailed as one of the world's ten top-ranked novels, Alexandre Dumas' book provides a rousing and captivating yarn of good conquering evil. Dumas writes in a literary style appealing to the curiosity and imagination of readers of all ages.
