5.0 out of 5 stars On wings of elation, July 23 2007

This Pevear translation Of The Three Musketeers evokes the thought, "such a good damn read; why did I wait so long to get through it." I award another plume added the chapeau of Mr. Pevear. Oh, this is wonderful!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great translation of a classic., July 18 2009

This review is from: Three Musketeers (Hardcover)
If you're going to read The Three Musketeers, which you should, this is definitely the translation to get. Stay far away from the Lowell Blair version, which saps much of the fun from the novel. I had read the Blair version twice before reading this and Pevear injects new life into an old favorite; he really brings out the boisterous and joyful tone.

Other than issues of translation what else can be said? The Three Musketeers is probably the best adventure ever told and remains one of my favorite books of all time. This version also has the cute cover art going for it, which is much less dreary than the drab portraits on many other editions.
