In this original abridged and accessible version of the beloved novel, we follow Dantès, imprisoned within the dread ramparts of the Chateau d'If, as he plans his escape to take revenge on the three men whose actions led to his fate. Finding a hidden treasure, he transforms himself into the Count of Monte Cristo and slowly executes his retribution. Alexandre Dumas' famous tale is as riveting now as it was popular in the 1800s when it established itself as a classic for all times.

Alexandre Dumas (1802–70) was a celebrated writer with mixed heritage, born of a French Nobleman and a mother from the French colony of Saint-Domingue. Author of The Three Musketeers and The Man in the Iron Mask, Dumas was one of the most successful authors of his era.
