The Count of Monte Cristo

I'm bad. I never read the book. We watched the movie, though, the other night, and it was GOOD. We especially liked Richard Harris (the true Dumbledore) playing a fellow-prisoner alongside the main character.

I loved the first Dumbledore.


  1. I'm with you on both the first Dumbledore and The COunt of Monte Cristo. :)

  2. You NEVER read the Count of Monte Cristo?! I read that (for the first time) when I was about 13 or 14! Susan, Susan... All I can say is that, while the movie is good, the book is SO good it will make you somewhat disappointed with the movie. That book should go on your ever growing book list that you'll never get through. ;-P

  3. I never read a lot of things that I should've and/or wanted to. That's what comes from spending your days on things like baking bread, teaching math, gardening, washing diapers, and editing books. Not that I didn't enjoy those things too. But sometimes the love that you give to others takes priority over the pleasure you want for yourself.
