This is one of my all-time favorite books. I have only read the unabridged version so I cannot compare how much more in-depth it is compared to an abridged version. Even though this book is long, I cannot imagine how any part of the story could be omitted for the sake of brevity.

I was completely engrossed in the story from the very beginning. This book is a true classic and is well worth the time it takes to invest in reading it. Don't let the thickness of this book turn you away...Even at the very end I was still left wanting more.

This is one of my favorite books.It's a must read Classic! I believe this is one of the greatest novels of all time. The story is amazing. A tale of sweet revenge, filled with mystery, adventure, and a slight touch of romance, What more could a reader possibly want?

Abridged version... about a third as long as the original 1600 pages, but still good.

I have read this book once before but I did not remember it well. I did not remember how over dramatic most of the characters were, always trying to kill themselves! No one wanted to take accountability for their bad choices in their lives. Oh, the romantic novels! It did not seem that the Count needed to work very hard to take his revenge. The characters were already pretty corrupted.

Four stars because this is an abridged edition. Otherwise, it captures the feel of The Count of Monte Cristo quite well and cuts out some of the leisurely pace and unwinding. Which really might be better if you plan to read it again... and again; in the unabridged version, sometimes you felt like saying, "All right, get to the point," and this version does it for you. Other than that, a decent version. Beautiful trade-sized hardcover book. Very classy looking on a bookshelf.
