Young sailor Edmond Dantes has it all-a loving fiancee, a bright future-but when jealous friends and political plots entangle him, he is thrown into a dreaded island prison for life. Who he meets and what he learns there will send him on a wild journey full of last-minute escapes, buried treasure, and the hardest question of all: will he seek revenge on those who tried to ruin him, or will he find a better path? Jim Weiss has adapted Alexandre Dumas’ massive book into an exciting recording that parents and children alike will enjoy, and brings to life a colorful cast of characters.
