My first thought on completing this book was how unfortunate it is that few people seem to know about it. I felt it to be a fantastic follow-up to 'The Three Musketeers' and enjoyed it just as much as I enjoyed the first book. The characters are enjoyable and Dumas' writing style is as fantastic as ever. I'm just sorry more people haven't discovered this excellent book.

In Twenty Years After by Dumas, many similarities can be found connecting it to its prequel, The Three Musketeers. To replace the evil Milady is her son Mordaunt; to replace Richelieu is the penurious Mazarin; to replace Louis XIII is Louis XIV, his son. This novel is still quite swashbuckling, and this is incorporated in the doomed struggle of the four friends for the abandoned Charles I and his family. Divided politically yet united socially, Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and D'artagnan resolve to once again revive their loyalty to each other in the amazing fight they put up for the hands of fate, rather Cromwell and Mordaunt. This book can be very slow in places, but has a good ending and continuing storyline, so I would recommend you read it. If you didn't know, it is part TWO in a FIVE part series. The Three Musketeers, Twenty Years After, Vicomte d'Bragelonne, Louis d'Laviellere, and finaly The Man in the Iron Mask.
