The Count of Monte Cristo
Genre: Thriller, Adventure, Fictional
Author: Dan Brown
A must read classic, this book focuses on one thing and one thing only, “Revenge”. The plot of the book revolves around a young captain who was wrongly accused and sent to prison due to the greedy ambitions of three people. The young man then spends 14 years in an Island prison where he learns about a treasure of immense value. Armed with the knowledge of the treasure and immense wisdom gained from a prison mate the young man plots a daring escape which he barely gets out alive. He then retrieves the treasure and becomes extremely rich and powerful and hunts down the ones who have wronged him and return a revenge so complex that those who are at the receiving end of the blade of karma can’t believe it to be true. The book is fairly large so don’t expect you can hunker down and finish it in a day. The book shows the treachery of people, the loyalty of friends and the illusion that the power of money creates. In the end the book does make justice to the saying “Revenge is a dish best served cold”.
