JUNE AND JULY- The Count of Monte Cristo

YAY! We have another book. for June, our book takes a classic turn to The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.


 


Here is a synopsis from Goodreads


"Falsely accused of treason, the young sailor Edmond Dantes is arrested on his wedding day and imprisoned in the island fortress of the Chateau d'If. Having endured years of incarceration, he stages a daring and dramatic escape and sets out to discover the fabulous treasure of Monte Cristo, and to catch up with his enemies. A novel of enormous tension and excitement, The Count of Monte Cristo is also a tale of obsession and revenge. Believing himself to be an 'Angel of Providence', Dantes pursues his vengeance to the bitter end, only then realizing that he himself is a victim of fate. One of the great thrillers of all time, The Count of Monte Cristo has been adapted for film and television many times."


Can't wait to read this will everyone! Remember to tell us what you thought of the MAY book if you read it, I would love to hear and respond to everyone :)

I am getting through. Don't know exactly how far I am because I am reading it on a nook, and the page numbers are different, but so far I am enjoying it!

Well...not sure I will finish this one in time. My nook says it has 3261 pages, and I am only on 961. I have a good excuse though, I got a job....and right now I am on call...so I never know when I will work...or sleep! lol....ah...I am trying though! Going to start bringing it to work with me, maybe I'll get some reading done there...

It is a long book and while it is not super complicated it is not an easy read either. I read it years ago and then again recently. I loved it!


To me, this is kind of a fairy tale. But I don't want to say too much to not spoil anything.

I definately think another month is good...at least for me. I haven't read at all in the last couple of weeks, been way to busy. I am up for whatever though!!!!

I've been busy too.. and I start a class that I will be in class 5 hours a day M-TH for the next 5 weeks. If it's okay with everyone else, can we extend this book for July?

I have to admit that I was never able to get a copy from the library (ours was checked out) and did get a chance to buy it.  I would love it was extended so I could still get it and read it!

I read Monte Cristo once and honestly hated it. Lol. So i'm waiting for next month's book... :) I'm re-reading the Sookie Stackhouse novels while I wait!


On another note- has anyone read The Help? It's SO GOOD. I read it SO fast and now I can't wait for the movie to come out, haha.
