Set during the reign of Louis XIII (1610-43) and based on actual events, The Three Musketeers is perhaps the greatest cloak and sword story ever written. Three Musketeers, loyal servants of the King, are joined by the dashing D'Artagnan, a veritable Byronic hero. These four are pitted against the master of intrigue, Cardinal Richelieu, and the quintessential wicked woman, Lady de Winter. Dumas was quite expert in pacing and varying action while weaving historical fact with purest fiction. This great work is the unchallenged archetype for literary romance and has been a perennial delight for generations of readers. Download and start listening now!

    " Dumas is an excellent story teller. His characters are humorous and human. The characters include several women, one of who is an evil genius. She is moderately believable and her escapades are well developed. It is nice to see a woman portrayed as intelligent in a book of this era, even if she is evil incarnate. "

    " So. Much. FUN. SO MUCH FUN. "

    " You'd think it was more exciting throughout, but it's actually got quite a few boring parts. From movie adaptations I thought maybe you would like the muskateers, but they're all morally flawed. I give it three stars for literary merit and some excitement, but overall not as great as I thought it would be. Also, it's quite PG-13. "

    " Of course, this is a wonderful classic, masterfully done. But you can get gushing reviews of classics all over the place. Let me tell you a few things that I didn't like about The Three Musketeers...[return][return]It is kind of a mistake in a way to judge past literature by current morales, but it is inevitable that we have some sort of reaction to what we read. In the case of the Three Musketeers, as you read, you really start to wonder if the heroes are really heroes and if they are any better than the 'villians.' For example, D'artagnan deceives and seduces the villianess, while professing love for two other women and blatantly using others. Are we really supposed to be on his side? If this were a modern novel, we might expect the hero of the novel to be questionable, or sometimes the main character is even really the ultimate villain in modern books. However, in this case, we are more or less supposed to love and support the main characters even though they are sleeping about, lying, murdering and drinking the whole way through. That unsettles me a bit.[return][return]Even so, it is definitely a great adventure tale. Lots of intrigue (maybe too much?) and swashbuckling good times with dashing characters.[return][return]A comment or two on the audiobook... the one I listened to was very well done with great voice acting by a single actor. I can't say that this is a great book to listen to though because it is so stinking long. I am a pretty fast reader and am relatively certain that I could have completed it much faster if I had read it myself. It is satisfying as an audiobook, but it is also about 23 hours long! "

    " D'Artagnan joins the musketeers at the risk of his own life. He pursues conspirators plotting against the life of the king and the leader of the musketeers. Falls in love, and saves her life in the process. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 AmyLyn | 12/12/2013

    " Time to clear this off my currently reading shelf since I'm not. I was actually quite enjoying this story, but I just didn't have enough time to dedicate to this epic and it's not a book that should be read too slowly or it will start to really drag. I hope I return to this one someday. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 François-Denis Gonthier | 11/25/2013

    " I found that book long winded and boring. The films and cartoons are much more entertaining than the original story. I'm still happy I read it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phil | 10/24/2013

    " 5/5 A rollicking good read and I can't recommend this highly enough. It's full of plot holes and creaky old hokum, but it's SO enjoyable. I now have to seek out the four sequels (one of which is 'The Man in the Iron Mask') "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherrie | 10/21/2013

    " A lot more fun and accessible than I expected - I guess it helps to imagine D'Artagnan as Joseph Gordon Levitt too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Valerie | 9/15/2013

    " J'ai lu ce roman en francais (c'etait tres difficile), et je l'adoree. Je lirais plus de Dumas. Oh my god, my French is terrible. Fuck. Must work on that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma XD | 7/27/2013

    " This is my favorite book in the universe. Maybe someday that will change, but it's not likely. I love this book. It's got action, romance, drama.... all you can ask for in a book and more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rojo | 6/22/2013

    " didn't finish it, but it was a really good story none the less. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toto D. | 6/10/2013

    " The beginning is slow for me but once I got deeper into the book the adventure began! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margo | 12/24/2012

    " This book is fucking awesome. One of the chapters is titled "In Which The Plot Thickens." Trails off towards a slightly unsatisfying end, though, if I remember correctly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eugenia | 11/12/2012

    " My first book, which I read... and re-read and re-read: simple enough for a six year old, exciting enough for an adult. French and Russian versions are extremely well written; beautiful style. English, depends on the translation. Great adventure story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jagad5 | 11/7/2012

    " Why can't more classics be this entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lily | 8/15/2012

    " Started out slowly, but really took off! My knowledge of the Three Musketeers was limited to the 1993 movie-version, so I was expecting Cardinal Richelieu to be plotting the King's demise and Milady/Lady de Winter to be good at her heart. Ha! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Candice Hull | 5/25/2012

    " I absolutely love this story. It's such a classic tale of valor, courage, love, pride and adventure. I have read this book every year since I was 13 (not going to say how many years that is :D ) and will continue to read it every year. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrywith1e | 4/27/2012

    " By chapter 4 this book has become immensely entertaining. "

    " At certain age it is too late to read Duma "

    " I love this book. It is a great feast of adventure and fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cherie | 6/29/2011

    " A- Very interesting - at times, I lost the plot b/c I wasn't paying attn enough, but super good, captivating read. Why wasn't it called the Four Muskateers, why is our hero kept out of it? Love, war, smarts, battle, life. Great stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Olga | 6/28/2011

    " Favorite book when I was a kid :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edy | 6/25/2011

    " I listened to this book and the listening made the book that much more enjoyable. The French words and names pose a struggle for me not have much of a background in French. The person who read the book made it very enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Geetha | 6/22/2011

    " 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! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elaine | 6/21/2011

    " I rarely give any book 5 stars but this classic is my absolute favorite book of all time. I have enjoyed this book over and over again. Now I am off to reading the entire series, which I so how have never done.

    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teegan | 6/10/2011

    " Was surprised, but I would call this book a rollicking good time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shams | 6/1/2011

    " The most enjoyable novel I have ever read. In fact, reading it whilst young helped release the rebel inside, probably not a good thing. ;] "
