Following several long years in prison he has managed to escape and reinvent himself as the mysterious Count of Monte Cristo. It is the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte and the Count has been plotting his revenge on the three men who had him falsely imprisoned.

This was also my introduction to Manga Classics. I went in wary (though I love Manga, I also LOVE classics, and was worried that manga editions might taint the originals and just increase the manga-critiquing community's reasons to hate on manga), but came out impressed. I have started but not yet finished the Count of Monte Cristo (work in progress; that book is massive), but just based off reading a good chunk of the book and seeing and loving the movie, this is a more accurate adaption than the movie, and for a manga book that I could read through in a few hours, that's super impressive.
If you like manga and are interested in this story but wary of the size of the original book, this is a quality way to get a better grip on the story. Would definitely recommend :)

This was my first foray into the Manga Classics series, and I was impressed! I have never read Dumas' "The Count of Monte Cristo," due in part to its daunting length. The manga adaptation distilled the novel down to its most important plot points, relating all plot actions and character developments to the central story: Edmond Dantes' quest for vengeance. The book was exciting, fast-paced, and relatively easy to follow. (I say "relatively" because, as noted by the writers and artists of the manga, "The Count of Monte Cristo" is such a complicated story with so many characters that no quality adaptation can be classified as "easy.")

I'm excited to read more Manga Classics!
