The Count of Monte Cristo (Penguin Classics)
When he finally discovers it, he is staggered by the immensity of its wealth. And when he emerges into society again, he is the very rich and very handsome Count of Monte Cristo. Monte Cristo has two goals — to reward those who were kind to him and his aging father, and to punish those responsible for his imprisonment. For the latter, he plans slow and painful punishment.
To have spent fourteen years barely subsisting in a dungeon demands cruel and prolonged punishment. But Monte Cristo, in contrast, recognizes all of his enemies — all now wealthy and influential men. Monte Cristo releases information to the press that proves that Morcerf is a traitor, and Morcerf is ruined socially.
