"Edmond Dantès" the Sequel to Alexander Dumas' masterpiece, "The Count of Monte-Cristo," is a novel that will delight, entertain and instruct all who read it. It has wonderful fascination, absorbing interest and rare merit, combined with remarkable power, amazing ingenuity and thorough originality. In it the narrative is taken up immediately at the close of "The Count of Monte-Cristo," and continued in a style of exceeding cleverness. There is a terrible volcanic tempest on the Mediterranean, in which Monte-Cristo and Haydée are wrecked, a vivid picture of the French Revolution of 1848 is given and the love affair of Zuleika and Giovanni Massetti is recounted in a manner unsurpassed for novelty and excitement.

This so-called sequel is not particularly well-done. First, a wealthy powerful man like Monte Cristo would never ally himself with the general socialistic workers. Second, he would have avenged himself on the bandit that destroyed his home. I read the other book first; in it he was changed, but he still had traces of the real Count. I began this book with the hope that some questions raised in the other might be answered, but few were. Then, I encounter simultaneous plots which cannot be reconciled with time and physical locations of several of the characters. Add to this the pedestrian and boring accounts of the revolution, and you have a blah book.

there was a excessive amount of French that was non translated or interpreted for the reader. In having so much French there should be a a warning with the book that only those two know how to speak and understand French should read the book or listen to it.

This is a fake! There was never a sequel to The Count of Monte Cristo. So stupid that they would try to make a new one.

too melodramatic

(3 Sterne)

too melodramatic and an abrupt ending nice to hear about the various characters again but I doubt that Dumas would have written such a sequel

It just sort of ends.... not a complete story. I assume there must be more volumes.

Nice sequel

(4 Sterne)

Good linking of Monte Cristo to French history
