A review by rchristine11
The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas père

adventurous dark tense slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Plot
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


The really enjoyable part of the book was seeing how character built their own tombs and designed their own ruins. The less enjoyable part was the long winded narrative, slow pace, and glorification of suicide.
