    Ok so I never read the original book. I read this and it’s so good I want to buy and get the original. Not gonna lie. If a book is too many pages it intimidates me and I don’t want to read it. When I saw that this classic book was in comic book form I was more willing to take a chance. I’m so glad I did. This is a great comic and I can’t wait to read the novel.

    From Amazon: The comic book from of the classic, Edmond Dantes, a fugitive wrongly accused of a crime and betrayed by a rival, escapes from prison to embark on a search for treasure. Eventually, Dantes returns to France after creating the new identity of The Count of Monte Cristo in order to exact vengeance on his betrayer.

    So this is another classic that I have not read the original of first. I never had any intention of reading this original as I did try to read The Three Musketeers once and gave it up as a bad job. Over the years I've come to simply realize I do like French Literature nor historical fiction set in French history, not even if Charles Dickens writes it. This story was passable reading but it is a very complicated plot with many storylines between various characters going on and I can only imagine So this is another classic that I have not read the original of first. I never had any intention of reading this original as I did try to read The Three Musketeers once and gave it up as a bad job. Over the years I've come to simply realize I do like French Literature nor historical fiction set in French history, not even if Charles Dickens writes it. This story was passable reading but it is a very complicated plot with many storylines between various characters going on and I can only imagine the number of cast not included in this graphic adaptation. A silly romance, with over the top devotions, willing to die rather than live without that one special love. It's also a story of revenge, backstabbing, swindling and the past coming back to haunt us. I can't compare to the original but Grant did manage to keep me on my toes with all that was going on with so many characters I never felt lost; while Spiegle is a legendary artist in the field and his art makes for an attractive book. However reading this has not made me want to read the original, anything else by Dumas nor has it changed my opinion of French Lit. in general.

    In addition to the swashbuckling story... I love, love the comics artwork of Dan Spiegle! He's one of the great storytellers, still living, and here's to him. I read this upon publication as part of the First Comics revival of the Classics Illustrated line. I liked this generation of Classics Illustrated above and beyond all previous: highly, highly recommended. You may have to find this on ebay or the back issue comics market. Ask your local comics shop, for instance. In addition to the swashbuckling story... I love, love the comics artwork of Dan Spiegle!

    One of the greatest and well written fiction stories out there. This book drew me back into reading in the 10th grade when all of my "friends" thought and said reading was a waste. Thankfully this book found me and proved that wrong at such an impressionable time in my life. I recommend this book to anyone and even more so to a parent trying to attract a young child into reading. This story has it all and will keep them into it. I cannot say enough good things about this book! One of the greatest and well written fiction stories out there.

    What a story! I had forgotten so much and loved reading it! I read a 500 pg abridged version this time but I would love to get my hands on an unabridged to read before bookclub. I had such a hard time keeping all the characters straight and had to keep turning back to the first few chapters to remember who had done what to Dante at the beginning of the story. Does anyone have an unabridged version sitting on a shelf?

    I re-read this classic and found that there were some details that I did not remember. This is an excellent book and it treats people of color and slaves in an unprecedented way for it's era. There is a new series called Dracula and it reminds me of the Count of Monte Cristo, after Dantes became the Count. Very interesting...

    Warning, if you have seen the most recent Count of Monte Cristo with James Caviesel, you will be disappointed with how the story ends. And yet, it has a rather interesting storyline. " There is neither happiness nor misery in the world; there is only the comparison of one state with another, nothing more. He who has felt the deepest grief is best able to experience supreme happiness."

    I never read a book like this, in which many characters development are involved. Pay attention to details of the book, a book about envy, betral, perseverance, adventure, love, hate, revenge on the evil doing and rewarding the good. Forgiveness and compassion are also involved...

    The best book that I have read. The epitome of page-turner and just like the old Saturday morning movies (that I am too young to remember) as each chapter seems to have some kind of cliff-hanger to keep you reading on!

    Always found this story to be too "neat" but they do a pretty good job on condensing it here. Always found this story to be too "neat" but they do a pretty good job on condensing it here.

    Loved this book, even though I had seen the movie first. Way better than the movie.

    This book was so in depth and detailed. It's lengthy, but I couldn't put it down! It's a lot different than the movie so you need to read it even if you've seen the movie.
