Yli tuhatsivuinen teos, mutta erittäin nopealukuinen: lyhyet luvut ja mielenkiintoinen juoni tekivät tästä täydellisen kesälukemisen! 

Tarina kertoo Monte Criston kreivistä, joka kostaakseen kohtalonsa pitää itseään Jumalan lähettämänä sallimuksena juoniessaan vihollistensa tuhon. 
1800-luvun alkupuolen Ranska ja Italia seurapiireineen on viihdyttävää lukemista. 

Aikansa tuotos, niin hyvässä kuin pahassa. 

Ah, teatraalinen, goottilainen, suosikkini! Ihmisyyden pahuus - ja hyvän pilkahdukset.

A wonderful, if slow at times, read. Great to see awful people get what's coming to them alongside a neat little reflection on what kinds of revenge people do and don't deserve.
