The Three Musketeers is a famous classic of adventure and intrigue that has been made into countless movies. (And no, it is not a graphic novel, though it may look like it from this particular cover.) The three musketeers of the title are named Athos, Porthos, and Aramis. They, along with their friend D'Artagnan (the hero of the book) loyally serve the king and oppose the Cardinal. The Three Musketeers started off a bit slowly, as some lengthy classics are apt to do, but soon it went at a much faster pace, and I was eager to keep reading. There are a lot of characters to keep track of, but they all play a role in the novel. I have a really beautiful old copy of The Three Musketeers, but then I discovered that it was abridged! So I'm glad I decided to read the library's copy.
Anyway, the world described in The Three Musketeers is fascinating, and I would highly to recommend it if you're looking for a challenging but rewarding read.
Read The Three Musketeers:
- if you have seen one of the various movie versions and want to read the actual book
- if you like French classics
- if you are looking for a lengthy book to read (though The Count of Monte Cristo by Dumas is even longer)
|Very Good! I would recommend this book!|
