Overview

First in a trilogy featuring, once more, D'Artagnan and his musketeer comrades....It is May 1660 and the fate of nations is at stake. Mazarin plots, Louis XIV is in love, and Raoul de Bragelonne, son of Athos, is intent on serving France and winning the heart of Louise de la Valliere. D'Artagnan, meanwhile, is perplexed by a mysterious stranger, and soon he learns that his old comrades already have great projects in hand. Athos seeks the restoration of Charles II, while Aramis, with Porthos in tow, has a secret plan involving a masked prisoner and the fortification of the island of Belle-Ile. D'Artagnan finds a thread leading him to the French court, the banks of the Tyne, the beaches of Holland, and the dunes of Brittany. "The Vicomte de Bragelonne" opens an epic adventure which continues with "Louise de la Valliere" and readies its climax in "The Man in the Iron Mask." This new edition of the classic translation is fully annotated; and an introduction sets Dumas's saga in its historical and cultural context.

    Long and Plotless

    I was really interested in reading this, but it just ended up dissapointing me. I really enjoyed The Three Musketeers, but this book was nothing like it. None of the musketeers are even together; they're all on their own seperate missions, traveling from place to place. Their missions are pretty dry and uninteresting as well. In scenes where Dumas could have had swash-buckling sword fights or action scenes, he simply decides for the characters to make peace and do nothing. The part that irritated me the most was that the plot went absolutely no where! When specific characters were going on missions, Dumas makes it seem like there just going to work in the morning, with no clear goal other than to get done with as little action as possible. There are no real objective or climactic scenes. It's just dull.

    Not Dumas' Best

    After reading and enjoying "The Three Musketeers" and "Twenty Years After" I picked up this one expecting to read another wonderful story about Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and D'Artagnan. Well, with the exception of "The Man in the Iron Mask", I can't recall ever being more disappointed with a book than I was with this one. First of all, the book has very little to do with the four musketeers. So if you want to read it for the characters, you will be greatly disappointed. Aramis and Porthos are hardly in this book. They don't even appear in it at all until nearly 500 pages into it. (The book has about 650 pages.) And then they pretty much have a "Blink and you'll miss them" type of appearance. Athos is in it a fairly good bit during the first half, but he is absent for most of the second half. D'Artagnan's appearance in the book is decent especially when compared to that of the others. Then there's the fact that the book has no plot. It consisted mostly of pointless scenes that had absolutely nothing to do with the stories that developed in "Louise de la Valliere" and "The Man in the Iron Mask". Basically, Dumas kept starting stories and then abruptly ending them which made the book a very confusing and tedious read to me. I kept reading this book and the next two hoping that the purpose of these stories would be explained to me but they never were.

    All for one One for all!!

    If you like the style of Dumas or have read and enjoyed any of the other Dumas books then this is a book just for you. It's a great book but I must warn you that it's a long one because if you read this be ready to read the two other sequels as well. I recommend that you read Three Musketeers and twenty years after before reading this one. This is the beginning of the last adventure of the musketeers and the most suprising one. With it's theme of friendship, love, intrigue, the palace and the life of our musketeers this novel is a masterpiece. Just be patient at the beginning and you'll really enjoy the rest of the 3 books. You'll love it... !

    Continuation of Great Adventures

    I really enjoyed reading The Vicomte de Bragelonne because it fulfilled my expectations about the adventures of The Three Musketeers later on in their lives. With it's outstanding plot, action and intrigue, The Vicomte de Bragelonne makes a great book to read if you want to find out more about The Three Musketeers and their further adventures.
