30 Day Book Challenge |14

Book turned into a movie and then completely desecrated.

The Count Of Monte Cristo (2002). And desecrated is a strong word. As someone aptly put it, the movie version of this book leaves …a bare bones plot. I watched the movie and loved it. Then I read the book and loved it; but was shocked at just how much had been left out (to tell you the truth, my reader sensitivities still haven’t recovered). But I highly recommend both Alexandre Dumas work and Jim Caviezel’s adaptation. In the same order – movie then book.
