The Count of Monte Cristo

By Alexandre Dumas
Narrated by John Lee / 46 hours 56 minutes

Dashing young Edmond Dantès has everything: a fine reputation, an appointment as captain of a ship, and the heart of a beautiful woman.

But his perfect life is shattered when three jealous friends conspire to destroy him. Falsely accused of a political crime, Dantès is locked away for life in the infamous Chateau d’If prison. But it is there that Dantès learns of a vast hidden treasure. After fourteen years of hopeless imprisonment, Dantès makes his daring escape and follows his secret map to untold fortune. Disguised now as the mysterious and powerful Count of Monte Cristo, Dantès seeks out his enemies—and nothing will stand in the way of his just revenge.

Filled with thrilling episodes of betrayal, romance, and revenge, The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the greatest adventure stories ever written.

“Dumas was . . . a summit of art. Nobody ever could, or did, or will improve upon Dumas's romances and plays. ”

George Bernard Shaw, author of Saint Joan

“A piece of perfect storytelling.”

Robert Louis Stevenson, author of Treasure Island

Reviews

“John Lee imbues this classic with exactly the right balance of solemnity and compassion. His light accents for characters of various nationalities give them individual personalities without overdoing them in the slightest. Lee works with Dumas’s text to give each character complexity and emotion. The listener regrets the story’s end, wishing to live with Edmund and his adventures just a little longer.”

About the Author

Alexandre Dumas (1802–1870), French novelist and playwright, was born the son of an innkeeper’s daughter and one of Napoleon’s generals. He moved to Paris in 1823 to make his fortune in the theater, and at 28 he was one of the leading literary figures of his day. His complete works were eventually to fill over three hundred volumes, and his stories made him the best-known Frenchman of his age.
