The Count of Monte Cristo

Author: Alexander Dumas
Genre: Classic, life
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8
Type: Fiction (one of the most elaborate works of fiction I’ve ever read!)
Number of pages: 1095 of story, 1130 total (includes end notes)
Time period: Probably the 1700’s
My overall opinion: I liked it better than Nicholas Nickleby. That was another huge book, you know! By the time I was 500 pages into this one, it really started to pick up. Oh, I still had some trouble keeping characters apart at times, and there are tons of subplots (you get that in books this size…and they weren’t in the movie), but it was good. I’m glad I read it, and I recommend to any extremely brave reader who likes classic literature.
