The Count of Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas, Bill Homewood, Naxos AudioBooks

This is easily the longest audiobook I've ever tackled. I'm going to try to finish it before I go on vacation, but it'll be a near thing.


I've never read this before. I know some of the basics via cultural osmosis (and possibly a movie adaptation?), but I'm not actually sure how it ends. So far there are good parts and parts during which I tune out (one very long political discussion, for example).


After I listen to this, I'll see about finally watching the (sci-fi!) anime adaptation I own.
