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. "

    " 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! "
