Additional thoughts: I can see how a chart would be extremely helpful in this novel. I did think about doing that a few times, but the 700-page re-skim that I did helped set a lot of things straight in my mind!

According to Courtney's review, the Modern Library edition, which is what I read, is not a completely unabridged version, which I did not realize. Seriously, how is 1462 pages the abridged version?? Anyway, it sounds like I missed a bit at the end of the story, but I don't know if it's enough to change my opinion of the ending. I don't mind ending on a mystery so much as I was a little befuddled by his choice in actions. There was something that I thought he was working toward with all his plotting and planning and revenge and whatnot and it turned out not to be the case.

After courtneykir's comment above, I visited her blog and read her review, which I thought was good an provided some thoughts on some aspects of the book that I didn't cover here. I mentioned how I didn't care for the ending a whole lot, one thing in particular, but I didn't say what that one thing was in an effort not to spoil anything. Courtney then returned here with a follow-up comment which contained the exact spoiler that I was trying to avoid. So, below is the text of her comment, but I've removed the spoiler part. All the rest is unchanged:

I actually liked the ending. I felt that the methods of revenge were perfect, and Dantès found some semblance of resolve and happiness. I think a lot of people must not like the ending though, because all the movie versions have him ____________ instead of _______________. I liked that it ended with mystery. My only complaint is that it ended, and the story is so entertaining and enthralling I wish it would go on forever!

Best book ever. I've read it several times (and just blogged about it) and will probably read it again in a couple of years. You should read it again. And the second time I read it (a number of years ago) I wrote a chart to map out who all the characters were and how they were connected to Monte Cristo. A similar chart is on the Wikipedia entry for this book.

Great post!

I agree, this is a great book. It's very soap opera-ish don't you think?
