The Count of Monte Cristo
Now again, not being an overly deep thinker, I won't even pretend to be able to discuss the merits of this book with anything approaching intelligence. I liked it for what it is and it give me enough to think about afterwards. I like it when a book can leave me with something to ponder.
While I watched the 2002 version of the film The Count of Monte Cristo starring James Caviezel and Guy Pearce etc and really enjoyed it, I find that now that I have read the book I can't help but feel the movie didn't do it justice. I understand why they had to change the story so as to make it much more dramatic for the screen, yet one can't help but think how much richer the film would have been with all the extra subplots.
Did you know that the classics are free to download? Just check out Gutenberg.Org.
