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.

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.

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.
