The Count of Monte Cristo

The Count of Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas, ALEXANDER DUMAS, Alexander Dumas Pere I can now say I've read The Count of Monte Cristo and/or something by Dumas. It's obviously not a modern book, not modern sensibilities. So I guess it was an insight into the code of honor and revenge that I find so bewildering. While the final message is Wait and Hope -- the overall effect of the book doesn't satisfactorily project that message. I found it hard to keep all the characters straight. Some names change over time as people re-invent themselves. I really wasn't motivated enough to try to keep them all straight.
