The Count of Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas
Well, I just finished writing the book review to top all book reviews for The Count of Monte Cristo and hit save--but the review disappeared. So for now, here's my abridged review of The Count . . .

EPIC? Kids today don't know the meaning of the word, although they use it all the time. This book is EPIC. The Count of Monte Cristo was an amazing read and I give it my strongest recommendation. My list of all time favorite books just got re-arranged.
