The Count of Monte Christo

This book became my personal favorite after my mum made me read it many years ago. It is a classic and wonderful piece of fiction. The story is a tale of a man called Dante as he begins his revenge on the three men responsible for his unjust imprisonment.

Godman Akinlabi shows that through faith that you can shed all earthly inhibitions, leap over obstacles and become all God created you to be, which is great!
