{Synopsis} – A Conspiracy and a miscarriage of justice turn the gentle Edmond Dantès into an implacable agent of fate: The Count of Monte Cristo . Obsessed by vengeance and empowered by providence, the Count avenges himself on whose who have wronged him – but is this justice, or is this hubris? In the end, does even the Count know?

Alexandre Dumas’ skillful narrative combines intrigue, betrayal, and triumphant revenge into a powerful conflict between good and evil. Now this exciting saga, rich and diverse, takes on an entirely new life in this Manga Classics adaptation!

{My thoughts} – Another wonderful Classic brought to life through the art of Manga. I’ll be completely honest, I have never considered reading the original book. It’s big, it’s thick and I feel like I’d be reading it forever. I didn’t feel that way with this version. I am truly finding a new love for Manga books, most importantly for the Classics.

While I was reading through this book, I couldn’t help but enjoy the illustrations. The detail put into them and the way in which the characters were brought to life within the pages. I have come to wonder how it is possible that such long stories can be shortened in such a way that they pull the reader in. I found it difficult to set this particular book down a couple of times, due to needing to get some other things done.

I look forward to reading more books in this series. So, far I have not been disappointed and have enjoyed each of the books, I have had an opportunity to read!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
