Alexandre Dumas Ú 5 Free downloadSpoiler alertFirst make sure you find a copy that is unabridged Most editions in English ARE abridged but usually don t say they are Not sure if this Penguin edition is it s not the one i The Wife Stalker read Readers generally think of this as a tale ofevenge For me it was much deeper I m not a eligious person at all but for me this is a book that makes you uestion the existence of God or a god Edmond Dantes is without flaw a truly good person and his life is uined because a others envy him and b he was the victim of an unfortunate coincidence Even when he escapes prison and finds a monumental treasure it is years before he finds peace I dont think he ever finds happiness The uestions it Hep Kavgaydı Yaşamım 2 Cilt raises are why are good people so often punished by horrible tragedies when truly bad people are so often able to float through life with all theewards that this world can bestow The other uestion Dantes spends much of his life after prison seeking the people who tossed into the oubliette not to get The Samaritan revenge but to punish them He believes he is the angel of god and that he has been freed from prison so he can do god s will by punishing these evil men But as he proceeds in his uest he begins to uestion whether any man can actually be the angel of god whether it s a sign of mania or even insanity to think you can possibly know what is god s will In the end evil is punished and it is because of wheels that Dantes sets in motion But I don t think he is ever able to know if he is just another man seeking touin other men or if he is in fact the angel of god It s a uestion that as a journalist I try to always طوق طلا remember we are none of us the angel of god All we can do is try to live the best life we can and not decide who deserves to be punished or evenuined you know the classic uestion if you were stranded on a deserted island which books would you want to have well TCOMC is my answer without a doubt not only would the 1000 pages which are full of the most masterfully crafted and deceptively clever plotlines known to humanity provide hours upon hours of entertainment but it would also be a massive inspiration to search for hidden treasure i am living for a eality where i sit on my hoard of wealth plan the ultimate evenge against my enemies and wait to be Ambushed rescued as if my strandedness was my decision all along because thats the kind of self confidence edmond would want for me followed by the inevitable self actualisation that forgiveness patience and hope are the best ualities a person can have this story is definitely in my top five favourite books of all time but edmond dant s is the best character i have everead i can think of no other character who i have connect to bonded with or empathised for he will always have special place in my heart and on my bookshelf 3 5 stars The Count Of Monte Cristo is the story that teaches us an important moral lessonREVENGE IS FUNI ve said it before I ll say it again Audiobooks are the only way to go if you Fall Girl re not the sort ofeader who likes to ead all the shitty filler and crunchy dialogue that normally comes with classic booksFor those of you who think that classics are so much better than anything written in your own lifetime please don t take offense I m only talking to the peasants out there like me who prefer action movies with big explosions to Oscar winning stories aboutwell whatever Oscar winning stories are aboutOk so I listened to the unabridged version by Blackstone AudiobooksNarrator John Lee this guy did a FABULOUS jobDuration 471757 holy fuckAnother thing to keep in mind is that this book was serialized in a newspaper This means instead of getting the euivalent of a 2 hour movie you e getting the euivalent of a tv show that Timespace and International Migration ran for 9 seasons or something This thing was the soap opera of its daySo yes There s shit in here that could have easily been chopped outAlso if you ve seen the 2002 movie The Count of Monte Cristo with Jim Caviezel Guy Pearce and young Superman Well then the actual story will come as uite a surprise to you except for the names and general ideas zero things are the same Seriously Both were good but I kind of prefer the move ending if I m being uite honest Still the book had soooo much delicious scheming backstabbing and grifter styleevenge than the movie didSo Yeah I guess I m tornOk the gist is that this super nice guy Edmond Dant s who has everything going for him true love wonderful father job promotion gets set up by a few petty people who want various things he has And then the poor dude gets well and truly fucked by andom bad luck and a dirty prosecutorAnyway in a truly over the random bad luck and a dirty prosecutorAnyway in a truly over the fun way Ed becomes an expert in everything to exact his vengeance on everyone who wronged him Of course he goes a bit too far and loses himself then gets pulled back and finds himself again But it s all the shit in between that s so much fun to see Plus it all gets wrapped up with a big happy bow by a beautiful 19 year old ex princess at the endLike I mentioned it is an incredibly unrealistic story that unfolds in the wackiest ways possible I

D doesn t make the transition to modern day very well but on the whole it holds up so much better than a lot of the other classics you might be tempted to When the Apricots Bloom read Towards the end
