The original being such a great book, it would be very hard to live up to it. I decided to give it a try anyways and am very glad that I did. This book was fantastically written and was a great follow-up to the original classic. It has great character development and a well thought out plot. The characters and events in the story were so well written that you feel as if you are in the 1800s standing next to the characters, experiencing their losses and their happiness. I would recommend this to any fans of the original story, as well as anyone wanting a great read!
BThe Sultan of Monte Cristo is very well written and it is so intriguing. It keeps you captivated throughout the entire story. What makes this book interesting is that the writing style is credible and matches, or is pretty darn close, to the original era.
This is one of those books that are just dear and close to your heart. The book is original and also is a literary
classic. I have always been a huge fan and I will always continue to be. Without a doubt, I highly recommend this book.
By: Emma. See Source. Although many of us have read the Count of Monte Cristo, I always felt that it needed a follow-up. With the release of The Sultan of Monte Cristo, that void has been filled. Although it must have been a challenge for the author to write a sequel to the original best seller, I feel that in my opinion, this follow-up is by far one of the best publications in the same genre as the original.
By: MRubio. See Source. This book was recommended to me by a loyal fan of this author. The writer leads you into an amazing story with outstanding character descriptions and interactions. The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the great works of literature. This sequel comes close to the original. In this story the author pays special tribute to Alexander Dumas. You will find love, adventure, deceit; revenge and more. I really enjoyed the story, and it was hard to put down. I
highly recommend this book and this author's other work.

By: Aspen Jade. See Source. Wow, this is simply outstanding.The writer brilliantly engages the reader into believing the tale with their eloquent descriptions, dialogue, and interactions between characters. It has been ages since I have read "The Count of Monte Cristo" and I found this to be both refreshing and well awaited.
The writer brilliantly pays homage to Alexander Dumas with their choice of words, and style. If I did not know any better I would have sworn this was included in the real "Monte Cristo" realm. The tone, the pacing, and the environment are flawless. This book is recommended for all adult readers, "Monte Cristo" fans or not, as all readers will be pulled in to this writer's world.
++++ A Must Read.
By: Clark Covington. See Source. Just read this book from start to finish and really it exceeded my expectations by far! A great journey which encompassed almost the entire range of human emotions and trials and tribulations therein! I was especially impressed with the editorial style and the eloquence of the writer wherein he brought to life the characters in an unbelievably powerful manner! This was an absolute delight and I was unable to put it down after the first page! It was after a long time that I felt my feelings were actually stoked by the emotives in this book and more so when I least expected it to hit me so hard in a most awesome fashion.
I would recommend this book just for the sheer brilliance therein and also for the fact that it makes a really great read at an extremely reasonable price! I look forward to the Authors next book with bated breath and would highly recommend this one again to all and sundry!
By: Lilgracielou. See Source. Adventure, Love, Lies, False personalities, Revenge, Second thoughts and even second chances. The description of the people, the locations, and the events really pulls you into the story and makes you feel as though you are standing next to them as their life rolls on. Your emotions witness the horror, the love, and the fear as you continue to turn the pages. At only 61 pages this is a short and easy read that doesn't disappoint.
By: Andy. See Source. This was a really good book. Much better than I anticipated. I seen the movie the Count of Monte Cristo and also read the book a long time ago. It's been one of my favorite's ever since. When I first heard about this book I had some doubts of how good could it really be. Very few sequels are as good as the first, but Holy Ghost Writer is amazing. I love this book and it is just as good as the first one. If you are a fan you will definitely not want to miss
this. I highly recommend this book.
By: P. Westwood. See Source. The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favorite books as it incorporates some of the best ideas and genres of storytelling such as revenge, love and betrayal. I usually have to reread the novel at least once a year, letting myself getting swept up in the story of Edmond Dantes and his tale of revenge and betrayal. However, whenever I get to the end I am always left wondering what happened next? Well, I finally know with "The Sultan of Monte Cristo." The author, Holy Ghost Writer uses the same effortless style that the famed Alexander Dumas used to weave a tale that captivate and inspires with every word read. I haven't read such as wonderful story as this in such a long time. Holy Ghost Writer captures the original characters to a tee and creates wholly new characters that feel as if they have always been a part of the "Monte Cristo" world. I couldn't put this book down the whole time I was reading it, even when I should have been off making dinner for myself. I completely recommend this book, it is
a fitting sequel to the absolutely stunning classic and is more than worthy of
being the sequel to The Count of Monte Cristo!
