A review by james2021
The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas père

adventurous challenging dark mysterious reflective sad tense medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? It's complicated
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


The ending was not what I expected but I liked it. My main issue with the length was
SpoilerVampa’s backstory (don’t think this a spoiler but alas)
, the rest was fair length. I’d say it’s a page-turner for  the majority of the book.
