Author: Alexandre Dümas
Year: 1844

Wait and hope.

This is one of the best books I have ever read. The characters are deep and multi-faceted. At various times in the novel you feel pity, sorrow, envy, joy, dislike and other emotions towards Edmond Dantés (the main character.)

The book is pretty large (over 1000 pages), but it reads well and never drags. The final chapters of the book are exceptionally exciting as events and plans come into fruition. There are even a few unexpected twists that are vaguely foreshadowed at the beginning of the book.

I cannot recommend this book enough. It is a thrilling tale with action, suspense betrayal and revenge.
