The Count of Monte CristoDownloadable Audiobook - 2006
"The Count of Monte Cristo" , a bestseller since its initial publication, is the story of a daring prison break, a tale of betrayal and redemption, and a swashbuckling romance. Dashing young Edmond Dantès has everything. He is engaged to a beautiful woman, is about to become the captain of a ship, and is well liked by almost everyone. But his perfect life is shattered when he is falsely accused of treason by a jealous rival and thrown into a dark prison cell for fourteen years. Written in Dumas's oft-imitated style of adventure and suspense and filled with vivid details of post-Napoleonic France, "The Count of Monte Cristo" continues to dazzle with its thrilling and memorable scenes, including Dantès' miraculous escape from the dreadful Château d'If, his amazing discovery of a vast hidden treasure, and his transformation into a man whose astonishing thirst for vengeance is as cruel as it is just.
