One part of the story ends, and another begins. A new friendship is formed, ‘An Escape’ is dared. We now enjoy a story of courage, bravery, deceit and fraud, revenge and death. Yet the message left behind by The Count of Monte Cristo is one of waiting and hoping for better times to come – and they do come.
Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo
“I am not proud, but I am happy; and happiness blinds, I think, more than pride.”
