~Plot Synopsis~
Dantes, a young French sailor, is snatched from the arms of his bride, Mercedes, and placed in a
dungeon on charges of treason trumped up by Danglars, Fernand, and De Villefort. Dantes tunnels
into the cell of the Abbé Faria, spends the next 20 years receiving the benefits of the Abbé's great
fund of knowledge, then escapes by substituting himself for Faria's dead body. After finding a
treasure on the island of Monte Cristo with a map given to him by the Abbé, Dantes returns to
France, eventually gets revenge on all of his enemies, and is reunited with Mercedes.
