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
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)
The book is one of the best there is. But not this recording.
It's fine during normal narrator-speak. The minute he tries to do a woman or an Italian, all bets are off.
It's unabridged, so none.
