Two weeks ago in church, the pastor told us to turn to the person next to us and tell them our favorite novel. I turned to my 21 year old son and said "The Stand by Stephen King" and he replied "The Count of Monte Cristo". We agreed we'd read the other's book.

I finished TCoMC in about a week. Awesome. I'd read The Three Musketeers and The Man in the Iron Mask before, but for some reason I'd never picked up this book. It is definitely a classic.

One word of caution, though. My son handed me his paperwork B&N Classics version and I found out that it is abridged. So much so in fact that there are a couple of sub-plots that are entirely gone. The unabridged versions are available in ebook formats all over the Net so I'm going to re-read the longer version some months down the road.

I was more aware of what I was doing when I handed him the restored, full length version of The Stand. ;-)
