But his perfect life is shattered when three jealous friends conspire to destroy him. Falsely accused of a political crime, Dantès is locked away for life in the infamous Chateau d’If prison. But it is there that Dantès learns of a vast hidden treasure. After fourteen years of hopeless imprisonment, Dantès makes his daring escape and follows his secret map to untold fortune. Disguised now as the mysterious and powerful Count of Monte Cristo, Dantès seeks out his enemies—and nothing will stand in the way of his just revenge.

A lot happened in this book, and although it slowed down a little in the middle and it didn't end the way I expected, I'm really glad I read it. The narration was good, and definitely made the book itself more enjoyable.

Amazing! It would be wonderful if a force with the will of Edwin Dante could avenge the wicked in our world today. I hated reaching the end of this tale of love
