oh the movie is a piece of sh-- compared to the book, but if i remember, they're not as similar as they seem. you GOT to read the book. loved the count. got to love how he gets them back. reminds me of old times. lol. kinda sad about that one wife and the kid though.

i loved the book. one of my favorites. but at the same time, i read the abridged version, so i don't know necessarily what the thousand-something paged edition is like :P

and i liked the movie. not as good as the book, but pretty good, and fairly accurate (emphasize fairly).

I've read the book, although only the abridged version, and it is quite captivating. It is quite tragic how when he comes back Mercedes... never mind, I wouldn't want to ruin it for the others.

I like that book. Miguel Servantes has used sarcasm a lot and in a brilliant way. It is hard to understand the true meaning of it at first though.

I'm sorry, but isn't The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas?

Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) was one of the most famous French writers of the 19th century. Dumas is best known for historical adventure novels like The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo, both written within the space of two years, 1844-45, and which belong to the foundation works of popular culture.


Yes, the author is Alexandre Dumas.

I thought that The Count Of Monte Cristo was one of the best books i've ever read. I'm glad other people feel that way too
