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

This part is just tragedy after tragedy, with tragedy slathered on top. Edmond's father decided to interpret "you need to be on a limited diet" as "don't eat anything at all." Meanwhile the "Abbe" (aka Edmond, although for some reason Dumas continues to refuse to say so to readers) tries really hard to hide the depth of his emotions and does a so-so job of it.

 

And yay, I'm a fifth of the way through. Tomorrow's likely the last day I'll be listening to this for a while. I have a conference presentation to do (::slight panic::) and then I'm off and don't have to think about work for two whole weeks.
