Stacy I read an edited edition-without realizing it. It did not have the justice the full book did. I know I would like it more if I read it with all included but I just can't make myself.

Janet I read the full book, after seeing the movie. I loved the movie so much, and usually the book is better. But in this case, I liked the movie ending better. I love good literature, and Dumas' story and character was fantastic and well-written, but what made me really love this story was the forgiveness and redemption that I felt was better portrayed in the movie. Still, a great story, if you loved the book you gotta see the movie!
