Monte Cristo can think of only one thing; he may never see Mercedes again. Once, he was so  cocksure and confident. Now he has doubts. Introspectively, he wonders if he was right to follow the  trail of vengeance for ten years. But only briefly does he question his actions. He instantly delights in  the beauty of the day, the sky, the boats, and the harbor. But again, the dark mood of memory  envelops him as he recalls a certain ship in this very harbor, the ship that carried him away to the  horrible prison of Chateau d'If.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
