Score: [9]

With that in mind, I thought it was an excellent adaptation. It manages to capture the spectrum of feelings that Edmond faces over the course of the story and the changes that he experiences as a result of them very well, and the reader is very much able to feel emotions such as rage at the villains or satisfaction when read more
