Book Beginnings on Friday: The Count of Monte Cristo

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading. If you like, share with everyone why you do, or do not, like the sentence.

I've just started The Count of Monte Cristo, which I'm reading for the Oh La La French Historical reading challenge and Oh La La week on Royal Reviews:

The Count of Monte Cristo (Signet Classics)On the 24th of February, 1815, the watch-tower of Notre-Dame de la Garde signalled the arrival of the three-master Pharaon, from Smyrna, Trieste, and Naples.

Nothing exciting or enticing about this opener, but at least it tells me when and where I am, and I appreciate that!


  1. I actually loved this book. It's got everything you need, love, betrayal, revenge, secret identities. Good stuff. Hope you enjoy it.

  2. I really love that opener. I haven't read this book but I hear only good reviews about it so I will have to make sure I fead it when I can

  3. I gave you the Versatile Blogger Award. Go to to claim it.
