Pre-The Count Of Monte Cristo

I considered reading this book in French because it would go much faster that way. I only know about six words in French. Then I decided perhaps I would miss some of the flavor of the book, so I'm planning to read it in English. But I've heard so many people say they dislike this book that I wonder how I will feel about it. I'll give it 100 pages and see where I stand.

One thing I know - I'm back in 1815!


  1. I've read this one in French! Also Candide.

    But I'm reading them again in English, because I have no idea what happened in them. :D

  2. Well, I liked it, but I might have an unnatural fondness for really long books! It's been a while since I read it, but if I remember correctly, I found it an entertaining read.

  3. I've heard several people say this is one of their favorites, so perhaps you'll enjoy it! I hope so!
