Editorial Reviews

Review

''Dumas was... a summit of art. Nobody ever could, or did, or will improve upon Dumas's romances and plays.'' --George Bernard Shaw

''(Audiobook narrator) John Lee imbues this classic with exactly the right balance of solemnity and compassion. His light accents for characters of various nationalities give them individual personalities without overdoing them in the slightest. Lee works with Dumas's text to give each character complexity and emotion. The listener regrets the stor's end, wishing to live with Edmund and his adventures just a little longer.'' --AudioFile

''Popular writers of contemporary action thrillers owe a debt of gratitude to Dumas, whose famous early-nineteenth-century protagonist, Edmond Dantés, is a loner and a vigilante, single-mindedly bent on redressing wrong and infinitely capable of achieving that end, no matter how extreme or wildly improbable the means. From the first page of the novel, Dumas separates the 'good guys' from the bad and pulls the reader into the drama, squarely on Edmond's side . . . (audiobook narrator) Lee's deep muscular voice works well for this swashbuckler . . . his reading is highly expressive, his pace brisk, his tone rich with foreboding.'' --Kliatt

1.0 out of 5 stars This translation is so bad it's comical!
By Shawni A Burris on January 8, 2020
THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO is an amazing story! This Kindle Edition translation of this book is so bad that it's comical. It's got so many mistakes, it takes a translator to understand the translation! It's like whoever translated it didn't speak English or it was translated by a computer.
Here are a couple of my favorite "translations" from French to English:
PRICEY - as in "Hello my pricey Father"...word that should have been used: TREASURED
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA or USA as in "I'm having a party at my United States of America home in the South of France."...word that should have been used: COUNTRY
CANDY - as in "She had such a candy face."...word that should have been used: SWEET
HOMOSEXUAL - "All of the ladies at the party were happy and homosexual."....word that should have been used: GAY
INTERNATIONAL - "What in the international is going on?"...word that should have been used: WORLD
PHOTOGRAPH - "Why do you photograph such a gloomy future."...word that should have been used: PICTURE
DOMESTIC - "Welcome to my domestic"...word that should have been used: HOME
...and so many more!
Once again...so BAD! Penguin Reader should be embarrassed!...but, if you are up for a challenge and possibly a laugh...go for it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poorly edited Kindle edition of a masterpiece of literature.
By Amazon Customer on June 2, 2017
I love this book. It is a masterpiece of writing and I wanted a copy I could read any time I wanted. However, the Kindle edition has so many errors that it is unreadable. Every page has words running together, and it makes for a huge headache to get through even 2 pages. I couldn't read it due to these issues. I'm very glad I only spent $1.99 on it, but I wish I had spent nothing. A very poorly edited kindle edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really stands out
By Briggan on July 8, 2017
This book is a vibrant blue that really stands out on the bookshelf. It is even better than the picture gives justice. I am attaching pictures in hopes to show other viewers how great it looks!
