SPOILERSThe Count of Monte Cristo
by Alexander Dumas
At the beginning I was kind of regretting my decision to read this one. It's big and wordy and I think I might be behind schedule. I found everything before the breakout a little tedious as well. But, as if you couldn't guess, the reveeeeeeenge won me over. Such glorious cleverness and scandal. I loved it! And now I will understand what people on the Revenge (tv show) forums are talking about, hooray.
