    A continuing story, not standalone reading

    Musketeer fans will be disappointed if they are looking for the rollicking adventures of the quartet since their roles in this book are far more subtle--if not sinister in some cases. Still, the larger story is heavily influenced by the acts of these characters. True, the book does start slow but the story evolves into an enjoyable view on the intrigues of Louis XIV's court. The editors make the case that much of what some may view as 'boring' is really Dumas' attempt to highlight the changes taking place in France at the time chivalrous deeds and high adventure are replaced by intrigue and politics and the story reflects that.

    Some books were not meant for the screen

    I am happy to say that some books were never meant for the big screen. Dumas' trilogy has been a delight to read, though I admit his books are not meant for those who lack commitment to their literature or who would rather be dazzled for two hours by Hollywood. His books tell a wonderful story (though loosely tied to history)and should be read by those who have the patience to experience a well developed plot.
