The Innocents Abroad (page 71)

I was utterly giddy reading this in chapter 11 (p. 71) because I count (See what I did there?) that book as one of my all-time favs. "We saw the damp, dismal cells in which two of Dumas' heroes passed their confinement - heroes of 'Monte Christo."

Some of our members replied with this...

"I enjoyed Count, as well. I read an abridged version (that was still loooong) with my book club years ago." -M

"I just finished reading these two pages; I have read both of the Dumas stories Twain mentioned. And I have to say that as a whole, this novel has me running a gamut of emotions! These two pages moved me terribly, almost to tears, and shows yet another reason why Twain is considered a master storyteller." -L

What did you think when you read that?

It's always more fun to read when you have someone to talk to about it. I'd love to hear your thoughts. Email me at and let's talk about it.
