During this time, he secretly meets another detainee, l’Abbé Faria, an erudite believed to be insane, who becomes his friend and teacher, and who, upon his death, gives Edmond the secret to a hidden treasure.Dantès then manages to escape, almost drowning in the process, and is believed by all to be dead.

Very enjoyable reading. Some of the readers are not very clear though. I had difficulty understanding them.
