Re-Read on audio and still on my favorites list!
I never in a million years would have thought I would love this book! I never thought I would like something like this book. I never thought I would fall in love with Dantes!
I never thought I would have so much anger, sadness, despair and happiness in this book! I never thought, did I! He Re-Read on audio and still on my favorites list! He had a woman he loved and was going to marry named Mercedes.
And he was going to be captain of the wonderful ship, Pharaon. The the jealous bastards or just bastards in general ruined life for Dantes. Villefort I hate these men with such a passion I just wanted someone to kill their evil selves. All of the jerks had a hand in putting Dantes in prison for 14 effing years!
Dantes was in such despair he was going to starve himself to death. Then one night Dantes hears a scratching sound and soon realizes someone is tunneling.
Dantes decides to tunnel as well.
At some point the two of them tunnel to each other. Dantes gets to meet Abbe Faria, the mad man so they say in the cell next door.
Abbe Faria thinks he's tunneling out to freedom but he made a miscalculation. But Dantes and Abbe devise a new plan and this takes some years to do all of this tunneling.
But the Abbe is old and sick and having seizures. He's not going to be able to make it so Dantes waits with him. He is like another father figure to Dantes.
And who in the hell but Dantes would wait and not leave his friend.
Because Dantes is good and kind and loving. Abbe Faria is also the one that opens Dantes eyes to who the culprits were that put him in jail. Poor Dantes couldn't see this at the time and he couldn't read what we were reading so he had no clue.
Abbe Faria also tells Dantes about tons of gold and jewels that he has hidden on the island of Monte Cristo. He makes Dantes remember everything about getting there and where to find the treasure.
Unfortunately, Abbe Faria dies and it was so sad. Dantes was so grief stricken over his friend. Dantes decided to leave then as he had nothing else to stay for and he put himself in Abbe Faria's place all wrapped up waiting to be buried. Well, he doesn't actually get buried but thrown out to sea and luckily Dantes managed to save himself.
And Dantes doesn't just run off and kill people. He tears down their houses, their world without them knowing who he is until the bitter end. And all of the riches they acquired while he rotted in jail was disgusting.
Anyway, some people did die but that's of little importance. Dantes is also kind to all of the people that were kind to him or tried to help him while he was in jail.
