Le Comte de Monte-Cristo
Avec Alexandre Dumas, je savais à l'avance, que j'allais rentrer dans la même féerie que dans "les trois mousquetaires". Ce livre m'a permis de m'évader dans un monde que, seul, les grands auteurs vous offrent de pénétrer. Je suis toujours subjugué par le génie de ces auteurs qui vous entraînent là, où, ils savent, que vous y serez à votre aise. La découverte de chacun des personnages m'a passionné, des plus importants aux plus effacés. J'ai souffert avec Maximilien, j'ai pleuré avec Valentine. J'ai attendu et espéré avec Simbad, l'abbé Busoni, et Edmond Dantès, la délivrance de cet être dont la souffrance m'était insupportable. Chacune des étapes menant à cette délivrance m'a transporté, comme par magie, dans un univers où, j'étais Edmond Dantes, je devinais, pris par la passion de ce livre, chacun des évênements avant qu'ils n'arrivent (en de hors de ceux qui tenaient du fantastique comme l'arrivée dans la grotte au début du livre, ou l'apparition d'Haydée, dont, j'avais du mal à cerner le personnage). J'ai plaint Villefort, Danglars et Caderousse qui se perdaient dans des abîmes sans fond. Je voudrai, inviter, ceux qui comme moi aiment les grandes histoires que l'on suit au fil des pages, des chapitres, et qui ne s'achèvent pas trop vite, à lire les ouvrages d'Alexandre Dumas, et tout particulièrement celui-ci. Vous ne pourrez plus vous y soustraire dès les premiers chapîtres et vous regretterez, comme moi, lorsque vous arriverez à son terme, qu'il n'y ait pas eu d'autres chapîtres ou qu'il n'y ait jamais eu de fin.
Comte de Monte Cristo
Bien dans l'ensemble. On pourrait améliorer les fin de page parce qu'a la page suivante il est quelque fois difficile de reprendre le fil de l'histoire.
Alexandre Dumas Dumas's 'Celebrated Crimes' was not written for children. The novelist has spared no language—has minced no words—to describe the violent scenes of a violent time. "In some instances facts appear distorted out of their true perspective, and in others the author makes unwarranted charges. It is not within our province to edit the historical side of Dumas, any more than it would be to correct the obvious errors in Dickens's Child's History of England. The careful, mature reader, for whom the books are intended, will recognize, and allow for, this fact.

Alexandre Dumas In The Count of Monte Cristo, Alexandre Dumas portrays the terror of a life sabotaged and the depths a man can sink to in pursuit of revenge. Framed as a Bonapartist traitor by a trio of conspirators, Edmond Dantès is confined to life on an island prison. On the edge of madness, his sanity is saved by an elderly prisoner’s stories of a hidden treasure. After a death-defying escape, Dantès vows to find the treasure and with it, bring vengeance to the three men responsible for destroying all he holds dear. But can Dantès bring just retribution without losing his soul?
Alexandre Dumas Sword duels and international intrigue. Kidnappings and political machinations. Wars, adventures, and power struggles. The Three Musketeers kicks off the d’Artagnan trilogy with a bang. Written and published in 1844 by French author Alexandre Dumas, it includes just about everything you could ask for from an adventure novel. During the Thirty Years’ War, a young man named d’Artagnan desires to become part of the military force that protects the royal family of France: the army known as the musketeers. His aspirations become complicated when he stumbles across an assassination plot involving the villainous, power-hungry Cardinal Richelieu and the seductive, manipulative Milady de Winter. It is one of Dumas’ earliest and greatest novels, and has never lost its popularity or its impact on Western culture.
Alexandre Dumas The Count of Monte Cristo (French: Le Comte de Monte-Cristo) is an adventure novel by French author Alexandre Dumas (père) completed in 1844. It is one of the author's most popular works, along with The Three Musketeers. Like many of his novels, it is expanded from plot outlines suggested by his collaborating ghostwriter Auguste Maquet.
Alexandre Dumas The Three Musketeers (Les Trois Mousquetaires) is a novel by Alexandre Dumas, père. It recounts the adventures of a young man named d'Artagnan after he leaves home to become a musketeer. D'Artagnan is not one of the musketeers of the title; those are his friends Athos, Porthos, and Aramis -- inseparable friends who live by the motto, "One for all, and all for one". The Three Musketeers was first published in serial form in the magazine Le Siècle between March and July 1844. Dumas claimed it was based on manuscripts he had discovered in the Bibliothèque Nationale. It was later proven that Dumas had based his work on the book Mémoires de Monsieur D'Artagnan, capitaine lieutenant de la première compagnie des Mousquetaires du Roi (Memoirs of Mister D'Artagnan, Lieutenant Captain of the first company of the King's Musketeers) by Gatien de Courtilz de Sandras (Cologne, 1700).
Alexandre Dumas The Man in the Iron Mask is a 1998 adventure film directed, produced, and written by Randall Wallace, and starring Leonardo DiCaprio in a dual role as the title character and villain, and Gabriel Byrne as d'Artagnan. It uses characters from Alexandre Dumas' D'Artagnan Romances and is very loosely adapted from some plot elements of The Vicomte de Bragelonne. The film centers on the aging four Musketeers; Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and D'Artagnan and the reign of King Louis XIV of France. It attempts to explain the mystery of the Man in the Iron Mask, using a plot more closely related to 1929 Fairbanks' version, The Iron Mask, and the 1939 version by James Whale than the original Dumas book.
Alexandre Dumas The Count of Monte Cristo (French: Le Comte de Monte-Cristo) is an adventure novel by French author Alexandre Dumas (père). Completed in 1844, it is one of the author's most popular works, along with The Three Musketeers. Like many of his novels, it is expanded from plot outlines suggested by his collaborating ghostwriter Auguste Maquet.
The story takes place in France, Italy, islands in the Mediterranean, and in the Levant during the historical events of 1815-1838. It begins from just before the Hundred Days period (when Napoleon returned to power after his exile) and spans through to the reign of Louis-Philippe of France. The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book. An adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy and forgiveness, it focuses on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune and sets about getting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty.

Alexandre Dumas His works show an intimate knowledge of the characters, and they are written without sparing the details. The subjects are of historical importance and show the semi-lawlessness that was typical of Europe in the Middle Ages. The 'Celebrated Crimes' series were an instant hit and Dumas was inundated with suggestions of other celebrated criminals to write about.
Alexandre Dumas Twenty Years After is a novel by Alexandre Dumas, père. This sequel to The Three Musketeers and a book of the so-called D'Artagnan Romances was serialized from January to August, 1845. This book, like most of Dumas' work is wonderful. His adventure stories still evoke a sense of wonderment and raise the hairs on the back of your neck. The series was originally published as a trilogy, The Three Musketeers, Twenty Years After, and Vicomte de Bragelonne. The Vicomte de Bragelonne is now published by most in three volumes: Vicomte de Bragellone, Louise de la Valliere, and finally The Man in the Iron Mask. You may have seen it split into four parts with Ten Years Later being placed in between the Vicomte de Bragellone and Louise de la Valliere.
Alexandre Dumas Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read
A popular bestseller since its publication in 1844, The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the great page-turning thrillers of all time. Set against the tumultuous years of the post-Napoleonic era, Alexandre Dumas’s grand historical romance recounts the swashbuckling adventures of Edmond Dantès, a dashing young sailor falsely accused of treason. The story of his long imprisonment, dramatic escape, and carefully wrought revenge offers up a vision of France that has become immortal. As Robert Louis Stevenson declared, “I do not believe there is another volume extant where you can breathe the same unmingled atmosphere of romance.”
