A very nice book to read

Sometimes you read a “Classic” and are unsure as to why it’s so memorable. This is *not* that book! This is a quintessential swashbuckling experience. Memorable characters, conniving villains...”fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, true love!” oh, wait, that’s from The Princess Bride. Ah, well, the quote fits!

four drunk spider-men fighting priests hard +++

A must read tale. Adventure and drinking is what the book is about, leading us to a
better understanding about frustration with government and establishment at that
time.

Like many others, The Count of Montecristo brought me to read this title. While it is an enjoyable adventure, the story is just not as compelling as the Count. Both books fall into the same category, so comparisons are only natural. If you don't know the story behind this one you should definitely read this one.

I enjoyed the Count of Monte Cristo a lot so wanted to read the Three Musketeers and it was equally enjoyable (and not nearly as long). Dumas style is easy enough reading and not overall deep. It is quite descriptive and his plot develops rather slowly though again not as slowly as in the Count

A fun adventure-packed read. It is clear why great movies have been made from this story.

The latest film adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' iconic The Three Musketeers opens October 21, 2011. Paul W.S. Anderson directs a cast including Milla Jovovich, Orlando Bloom and Christoph Waltz.

One of the all-time great adventure novels, Volume 1 of the D'Artagnan Romances(followed by 20 YEARS LATER, THE VICOMTE DE BRAGELONNE [which the Hennepin County Library inexplicably DOES NOT HAVE!!!!! FIE!! SHAME!!], LOUISE DE LA VALLIERE, and THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK)is a top-shelf, rip-roaring swashbuckler. If you enjoy this, I heartily recommend CAPTAIN BLOOD and SCARAMOUCHE by Raphael Sabatini, THE PRISONER OF ZENDA by Anthony Hope, and THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL by Baroness Orczy.

Ashamed to admit that I was so caught up in the "squash-buckeling", "plumed hat" imagry that it took me awhile to get around to this. I so loved The Count of Monte Cristo and I gave this a whirl and it is WONDERFUL! Definitely read it if you haven't already. Such a fabulous book. Despite the heft of the novel, I've read it in as little as three days. I've also read it 4 different time! If there were more authors like Dumas, I would never get anything done!
