The historic environment is a key component of the book, an adventure story that focuses mainly on concepts of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy, and forgiveness.

Edmon Dante, a successful sailor who was sent to jail by his jealous friends for a fake reason returns as a Count Monte Cristo who is an unbelievably wealthy person. He comes to know about the people who have sent him to jail and take revenge strangely. It is not the revenge we usually read about in most books. How he has become so wealthy? How he is going to take revenge? This book is personally a favourite of mine because it is very exciting how Dumas has connected every single incident throughout the book. You can’t guess how each person will appear in the next chapter in which manner. This is one of the highly recommended books that you must read.

02. The Hobbit, or There and Back Again (Middle-earth Universe) by J.R.R. Tolkien

The titular figure, Bilbo Baggins, is a modest, quiet hobbit. In his journey, Bilbo often references his larder’s holdings at home and hopes for further food. He’s more clutter than support before he discovers a magic ring. Gandalf, a wandering wizard, presents Bilbo to a thirteen-dwarf business.

On side chores dimly alluded to, the magician leaves throughout the ride, only to emerge once more in the plot at crucial moments. Thorin Oakenshield, the prideful, pompous leader of the Dwarf Company and inheritor of the ruined Dwarf Kingdom underneath the Lonely Mountain, made a lot of mistakes in his governance, focusing on Gandalf and Bilbo and getting him out of difficulty.
