Disappointing, but not surprising: I knew that Dumas had written a lot, and even his best works need a lot of compression to be readable. The count of Sainte-Hermine probably would not have been good even with much more work, though. With a blatant Mary Sue (much, much worse than Monte Cristo) and a meandering plot at best, finishing this book is an achievement that was not worth it. Trust me.
