Indeed, excellent book. Well humored and witty. I helped on the official translation to portuguese so I had to read it several times.

Also, "The Count of Monte Cristo." I just got the Amazon Kindle app, there are a ton of free books, mostly classics. It is quite possibly the greatest thing ever.
And here is where you win again, pal. I need to pick another Dumas to read but Monte Cristo will be quite the investment, considering the size.

One funny thing is that I'm finishing "Le Rouge et le Noir", by Stendhal, and in one of his own notes he criticizes Dumas work as being "frivolous".


.Bioshock inspiration.
