The Count of Monte Cristo

First Prize

 Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) is a famous French novelist and playwright. His famous novels are The Count of Monte Cristo, The Man in the Iron Mask and The Three Musketeers.

My favourite book among his novels is The Count of Monte Cristo. It is an intriguing adventure novel. It is also a story about jealousy, betrayal, endurance, revenge and hope. The story gets us hooked as we come to know the main character Dante’s plan and keeps us wondering how exactly he will get justice. Each and every character of the book is well described and captures the attention of the reader.

The story ends with the moral that good always triumphs over evil. The plot which revolves around Dante’s long imprisonment, his miraculous escape from prison and carefully planned revenge makes this novel a well crafted work. This interesting novel has been adapted into film.
