I started reading The Count of Monte Cristo yesterday. After 60 pages, here are my initial thoughts:
Danglars is an ass.*
Caderousse is an ass.
Cousin Fernand is an ass.
Also, based on the heft of the copy I’m toting around, certain people (the women at the nail place where I was getting a pedicure) are convinced it’s going to take me a year to read the book. Let’s hope they’re wrong.
*I am also convinced that Big Jim Rennie from Under the Dome is a direct descendent.
