The Count of Monte Cristo. Have a dictionary on hand.

Yes, yes yes and yes. One of the best works of fiction ever. The only down side is it's so good you're bound to be disappointed if you read other Dumas books afterward.

Isn't that the honest truth! His other's are utterly drab in contrast.

Huh, I acquired a very old copy of The Vicomte of Bragelonne last year. I didn't get very far through it (mostly because I do most of my reading whilst travelling and didn't want to risk damaging this old-ass book by lugging it around in my backpack), but what I read was pretty charming.

I guess I'd better get around to reading it (and his other works) before having a crack at The Count of Monte Cristo, haha!
