More About Alexandre Dumas

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Alexandre Dumas (pere) lived a life as romantic as that depicted in his famous novels. He was born on July 24,1802, at Villers-Cotterets, France, the son of Napoleon's famous mulatto general, Dumas, His early education was scanty, but his beautiful handwriting secured him a position in Paris in 1822 with the du'Orleans, where he read voraciously and began to write. His first play, Henri III et sa cour (1829), scored a resounding success for its author and for the romantic movement. Numerous dramatic successes followed (including the melodrama Kean , later adapted by Jean-Paul Satre), and so did numerous mistresses and adventures. He took part in the revolution of 1830 and caught cholera during the epidemic of 1832, fathered two illegitimate children by two different mistresses, and then married still another mistress. (The first of these two children, Alexandre Dumas, [fils], became a famous author also, ) His lavish spending and flamboyant habits led to the construction of his fabulous Chateau de Monte-Christo, and in 1851 he fled to Belgium to escape creditors. He died on December 5, 1870, bankrupt but still cheerful, saying of death, "I shall tell her a story, and she will be kind to me."

Dumas's overall literary output reached over 277 volumes, but his brilliant historical novels made him the most universally read of all French novelists. With collaborators, mainly Auguste Maquet, Dumas wrote such works as The Three Musketeer (1843-44); its sequels, Twenty Years After (1845) and the great mystery The Man in the Iron Mask (1845-50); and The Count of Monte Cristo (1844). L'action and l'amour were the two essential things in life and his fiction. He declared he "elevated history to the dignity of the novel" by means of love affairs, intrigues, imprisonments, hairbreadth escapes, and duels. His work ignored historical accuracy, Psychology, and analysis, but its thrilling adventure and exuberant inventiveness continue to delight readers, and Dumas remains one of the prodigies of nineteenth-century French literature.

Alexandre Dumas was born in 1802 and died in 1870.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great realistic fiction novel  May 22, 2008
If you like realistic fiction you will love this book; it is full of misfortune and how one man goes from having nothing to being one of the richest men in all of Europe. The Count of Monte Cristo, will leave you wondering what hill happen next, it will take you through every emotion, from joyous to depressed. Right from the moment you open the cover you will be sucked in not wanting to put the book down! Alexandre Dumas uses great word choice, like the prison. Even more advanced readers will be surprised by the great word choice. There are some difficulties with the book thought some parts of the book are hard to follow. Sometimes you might have to read a line again to really understand what it means.
This book is great; I liked the book because it went through the hardships of life and how an alias can go a long way.
 
Abridged  Sep 25, 2006
Very upset to purchase this and then find out it is an abridged version. It mentions this nowhere on the cover of the book and it wasn't until I saw the title page that I realized it. Of course, it is too old for me to take back so I am stuck with it.

If you WANT abridged, that is fine, but I find it irresponsible of Barnes and NOble not to mention this.
 
Action-Packed Read  Jul 6, 2006
I chose to read the abridged version of this novel first even though I also own the unabridged version. I know that other reviewers have posted that this version is missing many scenes, but it really didn't seem to matter. The story is wonderful and so action-packed that I couldn't put the book down. If you've seen the movie, you don't know the whole story. There is so much more to it and a movie just can't encapsulate the essence of these characters. Whatever version you choose to read, just read it and live it and enjoy it.

 
An amazing story of revenge  Jun 16, 2006
The Count of Monte Cristo tells an amazing tale of a young man's journey through his life. The story is full of joy, love, hatred, anguish, and most importantly revenge. Edmond Dantès at the age of 19 is full of promise as a sailor and is on the verge of finding everlasting happiness and love in a girl by the name of Mercédès. He has a perfect life, almost everyone likes him, he is about to become to captain of a ship, and is engaged to the woman of his dreams. When it seemed to him that his life was perfect and secure, he is framed by one of the few who dislike him and thrown into prison indefinitely.
From there it seems all is lost, but Dantès succeeds in a miraculous escape, finds a fortune on the Isle of Monte Cristo with the help of a friend, and embarks on a journey of revenge. In the midst of all this, his true identity is lost to all but himself and he takes the name of the Count of Monte Cristo to fulfill his desire for vengeance.
One of the best books I have read in a long time, The Count of Monte Cristo is an amazing adventure of wealth, revenge, and forgiveness. Alexandre Dumas has created a masterpiece of perfectly developed characters with changing plots and subplots to keep anyone excited about reading. The range of emotions from happiness, to despair, to revenge and anger, to sorrow gave me all that I needed to enjoy the book.
 
Read a different version  Dec 24, 2005
There's enough of The Count of Monte Cristo in this abridged version to hold your interest and make for a good read, but after reading this I feel cheated. The most evil of the conspirators, Baron Danglers, who is the primary author of Edmond Dantes misery, is given a relatively minor role in this version. All through the revenge chapters (which make up the majority of the story)I kept waiting to read how the baron would get his comeuppance, but was dispointed to find that's its left out and mentioned only in the end notes.
