''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
About the Author
Alexandre Dumas could have been a character from one of his novels. A true romantic, he was the son of Napoleon's famous General Dumas, a prolific writer of over 277 volumes, a revolutionary and a man of tremendous appetites. He was born on July 24, 1802 and died penniless but happy on December 5, 1870, a refugee from his own excesses.
