Countless movies have been made over the years on Alexandre Dumas¿ The Three Musketeers. Regardless of how many times you have seen these movies or which ones you have seen, nothing can compare to the book. This book is a timeless classic with an extremely action-packed plot that will glue itself to your fingers until you have read the last two words of the book: ¿THE END.¿ I have enjoyed this book tremendously and would recommend it. For guys, this book is the perfect book with the most interesting things in life engraved in it. D¿Artagnan, a zealous young man from a somewhat poor family, has come to Paris in search of his life long dream, becoming a musketeer. In doing so he plays his cards wrong and although securing it well with the leader of the musketeers, secures himself three duals at the same time: He had one with Athos, one with Porthos, and one with Aramis. Although humorous, this then builds their friendship and they accept D¿Artagnan as one of them. The next thing they know they are defending the Queen against the hatred of the Cardinal, hunting down a beautiful spy, taking on armies by themselves, and a whole lot more. One of the more interesting parts of this book is the culture that is so very evident in it. For instance, the four of them drink more wine than the country of Italy has to offer. For every meal, snack, or tea time they bring out the bottles. This is one of the many humorous things that happen on a regular basis with the musketeers. So, what will happen to the inseparable quartet of musketeers? The only way of finding out is by taking the time and effort and reading it. You will not be disappointed.

    Review from One Book At A Time

    I've only seen the Disney version (the one with Kiefer Sutherland) of this book, so thought I might enjoy it for my classics challenge. Boy, was I surprised. It was not an easy read. It's large and cumbersome. I didn't have to force my way though it, just had to take my time. I was most shocked by the differences. I was under the impression that D'Artagnan was a follower and more of the type to get into trouble. He's actually more of the leader in this book. The musketeers aren't as valiant and courageous as I thought. More along the lines of men who like their women and their wine, and prefer to haggle their way to getting them for free. There wasn't as much suspense, intrigue, coercion, and backstabbing as I anticipated. I was glad when I finished it, but happy I read it

    I Also Recommend:

    This version is a little difficult to read

    So I got this for my Nook because it was free and I loved The Count of Monte Cristo, also by Alexandre Dumas. Well, I have to say that there are many typos throughout the book. My guess is that it was scanned and some of the characters were not recognized properly. One thing I love is the word look up because this book having been written a very long time ago and in a different language has many words that I do not know the meaning of. I shouldn't have been such a cheapskate and bought my Three Musketeers.

    So-So

    The Three Musketeers is one of those books where if you don't pay close attention to every page you will have absolutely no clue what's going on. I read the first 100 pages attentively but then grew a little bored so I sort of speed-read through the book. About fifty pages later, I had absolutely no idea what was happening. I didn't feel like going back to re-read everything so I ended up having to skim through 500 pages of a story where I didn't know what was happening. If you feel like taking the time to slowly read 600 pages, then you will absolutely love this book. If you do not wish to do that, I suggest you not even open it!
