I'm up to chapter 99 now. After a long wait, everything is really coming together in expected and unexpected ways. Things are moving fast. I'm loving it.

I struggled with the audio during the middle of the book - I kept falling asleep, so I kept having to rewind to figure out what I missed. So now I'm reading the Buss translation and the kindle with an unknown translation. I'm not noticing any big differences between the different translations.

I loved the part with Albert, Mercedes and the duel! It's becoming more clear how Danglar will be ruined. I can't tell how much of his downfall will be because of the Count, or his own gambling and greed. They just arrested Andrea/Benedetto and I can't wait to figure out how his parents will be identified!

I always felt that Villefort deserves the biggest punishment, but he's getting hit from multiple angles.

I think this was the most exciting section of the book.
