Publisher's Summary

An adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy, and forgiveness, The Count of Monte Cristo 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!

It's fine... until it skips chunks of the story

What disappointed you about The Count of Monte Cristo?

I only have two problems with this recording of the book:

1) It's missing parts of the book. Therefore, unusable.
2) The narration is dreadfully irritating at times (e.g. the entire Louis Vamper sequence is like listening to a pig butchering)

What did you like best about this story?

The book is one of the best there is. But not this recording.

What didn’t you like about Peter Batchelor’s performance?

It's fine during normal narrator-speak. The minute he tries to do a woman or an Italian, all bets are off.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Count of Monte Cristo?

It's unabridged, so none.

Enjoyed but...

It was very well done. However ch 26 and 56 are incomplete. I compared to my well worn hard copy.
