[2] .It loosely follows the general plot of the novel (the main storyline of imprisonment and revenge is preserved), but many aspects, including the relationships between major characters and the ending, have been changed, simplified, or removed, and several action scenes not in the novel have been added, presumably to satisfy modern-day action fans.^ The novel was over a thousand pages long, has a enormous cast of characters, several subplots unfolding beneath the main plot, and was originally serialized over the course of eighteen months during it's initial publication, which gave its readers plenty of time to digest the many twists and turns of the novel, and the way many characters' fates are interwoven and their stories overlap.

    In the novel, Edmond discovered errors with Danglars' accounting leading to his and Danglars' disagreement. Also, Edmond would not have been considered as captain if he could not read ship logs, manifests, or charts. .In the novel, Edmond's early rise was attributed toward his keen intellect, extreme skill as a sailor, and devotion of his crew though like the movie, he was naive about the motives of his friends.^ One of the crew is a young sailor named Edmond Dantès.

    .Faria had accidentally found a half copy of the instructions to the treasure (the other half was burned) in a book.^ Faria now offered half of this treasure to Edmond Dantes.

    .He used his time at the Chateau d'If to decipher the rest of the instructions, and destroyed them after Edmond memorized them.^ Another important setting is the Chateau dIf between the time of 1815 and 1829 located in the cell of Abbe Faria and Edmond Dantes.
