The Count of Monte Cristo – Alexandre Dumas

If you croak before reading this, you’ve misspent your time. Not only is it an unusual story, it’s well-written (and well-translated), the plot is comprehensive, although not too confusing, the characters are well-developed – and it’s big enough to keep you occupied for days! Despite its 1243 pages, it’s one I can see I’ll be going back to. I’m a little bit in love with the Count…

This book also gets the award for the characters that spend the longest time shuddering; read it and you’ll see what I mean.
