The Mummy of Monte Cristo


Loved it! 😍

A dense yet thrilling page-turner about supernatural vengeance and wrongful imprisonment.

This thrilling tale treats a large variety of exciting themes: the reader enjoys a story of revenge from the framed protagonist who encounters a plethora of magical , action-packed episodes with a dash of horror. You will find zombies and vampires and other mythological creatures of horror ready to add a gripping zest to the protagonist's journey. Edmond Dantes goes through quite a lot in this tale!

It is certainly a long and hefty read, however I am glad I was able to keep up with the flow of the story. Others may not feel the same as I am not exaggerating when I say it is a read of considerably length. In fact, I felt that it was a bit slow initially regardless of the epic scenarios and descriptions, although the story truly does pick up soon enough once you get into the thick of it. I found that the length of this novel is for well justified reasons. A great deal of creativity and imagination has been pushed into the story. Both plot and prose are phenomenally captivating, with vivid descriptions complemented by the author's meticulous narrative style. The characters are well-developed, with their own detailed, individual personalities and quirks to add to the already impressive storyline.

In summary, I found this book to be nothing short of an intelligent and exciting reading experience. Given the boredom of lockdown, this perked me up significantly. It was a great form of escapism. I would love to read more from this author in the future !

In my final year of study as a Classics student, I am a publishing hopeful with books on my mind and if a story really grips me, I am a very fast reader! I spend most of my time studying the world of the Ancient Greeks and Romans, which I talk about on my blog ItzaNif.
