The Count of Monte Cristo is an adventure novel by French author Alexandre Dumas. It is one of the author's most popular works, along with The Three Musketeers. Like many of his novels, it is expanded from plot outlines suggested by his collaborating ghostwriter Auguste Maquet. The story takes place in France, Italy and islands in the Mediterranean during the historical events of 1815–1838. It begins from just before the Hundred Days period (when Napoleon returned to power after his exile) and spans through to the reign of Louis-Philippe of France. The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book. An adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy and forgiveness, it focuses on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune and sets about getting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty. In addition, it is a story that involves romance, loyalty, betrayal and selfishness, shown throughout the story as characters slowly reveal their true inner nature. The book is considered a literary classic today. According to Luc Sante, "The Count of Monte Cristo has become a fixture of Western civilization's literature, as inescapable and immediately identifiable as Mickey Mouse, Noah's flood, and the story of Little Red Riding Hood."

Young Edmond Dantes is First Mate and Acting Capt. of the merchant ship Pharoah.

Then three men conspire to send the innocent youth to the notorious island prison, the Chateau d'If. There Dantes meets the Abbe Faria, who gives him an education, and tells him of a fabulous treasure he's discovered. But Faria suddenly dies, and Edmond must take advantage of the sudden opportunity, or risk being imprisoned for life. He sews himself into the Abbe's burial shroud. Can he survive the plunge into the sea? An absolutely riveting drama.

The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas, was an instant success when it was first serialised in 1844-45. It tells the story of Edmond Dantes, an innocent man wrongfully imprisoned. On his escape, Dantes inherits a vast hoard of treasure on the Island of Monte Cristo, and uses his fortune to seek revenge on those who plotted his downfall.This title is part of a wonderful new series that offers a quick way into a range of exciting stories. Fast-moving and accessible, each story is a shortened, dramatically illustrated version of the classic novel, which loses none of the strength and flavour of the original. Retold rather than abridged.
