Aaliya's Big Book Club - 'The Count of Monte Cristo'
Some books are big, some books are small, at Aaliya’s we love them all. But the novels that lean on the longer side are often put off till later, we are busy people after all. In doing this we are all missing out on some great writing and brilliant stories. So, to get us to read some overlooked classics, we will be holding Aaliya’s Big Book Club every two months in 2019. Reading some of the best big books from history.
We are starting the Big Book Club with ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’ by the French author Alexandre Dumas.
The book follows Dantes, a young naïve French sailor with a bright future ahead. Only he quickly gets caught up in jealous plot that derails his life. Taking place just after the fall of Napoléon Bonaparte, and exploring God, vengeance, power, class and forgiveness ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’ is the perfect way to get reading big books in the New Year.
