    " My initial reaction is that The Three Musketeers (3M) is not on par with The Count of Monte Cristo. It is a good rendition of a history with excellent characters. But the characters that are most developed aren't the ones you might expect: viz. the three musketeers. There is one character that is unforgettable. Milady is a devil of a character, the likes of which are comparable to Richard III with respect to evil and manipulation. d'Artagnan's character is largely forgettable but for the fact that he is the main character. The style of writing doesn't come close to that of The Count of Monte Cristo (CMC). Many of the sentences are rote, lacking in any vivid descriptions, character development, and the poetic language that I so love in CMC. 3M is lacking in the theatrical nuances that are so well-employed in CMC such as flashbacks and cliffhanging chapters that hook the reader. I'll give the benefit of the doubt and credit these shortcomings to Dumas attempting to write only with the historical knowledge available to him without trying to fill the narrative with too many bells and whistles lest he sacrifice accuracy for creativity. The story, however, is still very interesting and the desire to become acquainted with its end is what kept me reading. And despite the narrative's sometimes dull tone, it did inspire within me an interest to continue reading the series to satiate my curiosity in how the sequels unfold. "

    " Going well; I had started on an older translation but was thrown off by the prudish subtlety of the language. Pevear's introduction is very interesting. I learned that Alexandre Dumas was one-quarter West Indian and that he came from a line of adventurous soldiers. Still in my re-reading stage, but quite enjoying myself. "

    " One of my favorite books. I can't give it a five, which I am not stingy with, but it always brings out my fantasy swashbuckling side. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 AJ Macrae | 7/12/2008

    " This is a definitive classic. It should be illegal for boys to not read this growing up or at least hear about it. "

    " The flow of events is enjoyable, and the character development is very solid. However, the plot lacks meaning in my opinion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 G | 2/12/2005

    " I read this book when I was very young but the dedication and loyalty of the heroes are still fresh in my memory. A great book I would like to read again! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel Montero | 3/17/2004

    " I've been in a retreading mood and came across free. I love that d'Artagan is a Gascon. Go bearnais "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Ricketts | 3/29/2001

    " This is one of the few I reread every year. The pages are worn and dog-eared... It is one of my all-time favorites! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mhbright | 1/31/2001

    " In addition to a great story, the novel has subtlely complex characters, both fascinating and realistic. The heroes have vices and the villains have virtues. I enjoyed this novel even more than The Count of Monte Cristo. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom Senith | 1/10/2001

    " Not a difficult read. Good pace but you must suspend a little modern morality. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reading Fool | 11/3/2000

    " Great read! The story is so much more than what's been depicted in films. Now on to the rest of this series... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Nikoline | 8/13/2000

    " The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas is a remarkable book inspired by history with a little extra of everything; it is both humorous, has great depth in the characters, yet it is very concrete in its purpose. I do not see any reason why people should not read it. "

About the Author
Author Alexandre Dumas

Alexandre Dumas (1802–1870), French novelist and playwright, was born the son of an innkeeper’s daughter and one of Napoleon’s generals. He moved to Paris in 1823 to make his fortune in the theater, and at twenty-eight he was one of the leading literary figures of his day. His complete works were eventually to fill over three hundred volumes, and his stories made him the best-known Frenchman of his age. He is best known for his ever-popular classic novels The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers.
