a lot of people assume i’m the type to enjoy revenge. i’m not gonna comment on that, but i will tell you a love a good tale of revenge, such as the count of monte cristo. the short version is—edmond dantes is betrayed by his best friend count fernand mondego, spends some time in a crap prison, makes some friends, finds some treasure and hatches a revenge scheme to end all revenge schemes. aside from sending edmond to prison, fernand also married his fiance mercedes. mercedes loved edmond and married fernand to protect her unborn child and is swept up in a world of money and status. naturally, part of edmond’s quest is to get back at mercedes for her running off with fernand but he eventually realizes he still loves her yada yada yada. it’s quite the confusing little story, but it’s so damn good. readddd itt.
