The Count of Monte Cristo (French: Le Comte de Monte-Cristo) is
an adventure novel by Alexandre Dumas, père. It is often
considered, along with The Three Musketeers, as Dumas' most popular
work. It is also among the highest selling books of all time. The
writing of the work was completed in 1844. Like many of his novels, it
is expanded from the plot outlines suggested by his collaborating
ghostwriter Auguste Maquet.
The story takes place in France,
Italy, islands in the Mediterranean and the Levant during the historical
events of 1815–1838 (from just before the Hundred Days through
the reign of Louis-Philippe of France). The historical setting is a
fundamental element of the book. It is primarily concerned with themes
of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy, forgiveness and death, and is told
in the style of an adventure story.
