The Count of Monte Cristo

by Alexandre Dumas

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

PG

You'll find lots of adventure, blood, sweat, and tears in this big novel, but nothing too steamy. Romeo-and-Juliet moments are everywhere (seriously), and lovers of all sorts abound, but Dumas decides to let our imaginations run free instead of painting vivid pictures for us.
