The Count of Monte Cristo Chapter 39

By Alexandre Dumas

Chapter 39

The Guests

  • The Count asks Albert if Albert would show him around town when he comes to Paris in a few months, and Albert is all, "heck yes."
  • But Franz is a little weirded out by the Count and his mysterious island-palace, drug-giving, bandit-saving ways. Franz is like, "Dude, I don't trust this guy – he's weird and he gets all shivery when he has to shake your hand." And Albert responds, "Are you kidding? He's awesome!"
