Read "The Count of Monte Cristo" by Alexandre Dumas. The main reason for reading this book was not a vain attempt to devour classic literature. A very interesting anime started to air a few months ago by the name of Gankutsuou, based on the book. I always prefer reading (or watching) any original work before I watch or read any remakes or such like.
Anyway, I did very much enjoy reading the book, (the main themes are loyalty and revenge which most of the time makes for a good read). Hopefully I will enjoy watching the anime as much.
