Le comte de Monte-Cristo by Alexandre Dumas ( Book )
72 editions published between 1845 and 2009 in French and held by 878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Originally published as a serial in Le Siècle newspaper in 1844, this classic intrigue features Edmond Dantès as a hero, a young sailor from Marseilles who, on the way to marry the beautiful Mercedès, is denounced as a Bonapartist conspirator by his friend and rival in love. Wrongfully imprisoned for 18 years in the Château d'If of the coast of Marseilles, he becomes acquainted with a fellow prisoner, the abbot Farria, who before dying confides in him about the existence of an immense treasure hidden on the island of Montecristo. After a spectacular escape, Dantès recovers the treasure, and returns to France under the guise of the super rich Count of Monte Cristo with the purpose of quenching his thirst for revenge. Dantès certainly deserves justice to be rendered, but his crusade, relentless and without pity, turns him into a bitter and rancorous man stripped of all emotion. The young and naive Dantès is dead indeed, leaving his place to a manipulative count. However the man is not stripped of all commiseration since he will come to the assistance of those who had formerly helped him, reward his servants and contribute to the happiness of Maurel's son and Villefort's daughter by facilitating their idyll
