5.0 out of 5 stars Swashbuckling Good Fun!!, Feb. 25 2008
By

(TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
This review is from: The Three Musketeers (Mass Market Paperback)
What fun! This books just jumps right out and keeps moving along (except for a couple of slow spots -- but needed to develop the character's past, etc.) The cameraderie between the Musketeers is awesome and they are incredibly wonderful scamps.

D'artagnon was adorable, as were Athos, Aramis and Porthos. The evil Milady was truly EVIL and WICKED. The dialogue was brilliant (as always), it just crackled right along. I think we all know the basic story and how it ended, but reading the book was much more enjoyable than the movie, as they always are. It did bring back many memories of that wonderful version from the 70's, with Michael York and Raquel Welch. I will have to revisit that. I also highly recommend reading the sequels, Twenty Years After, The Vicomte de Bragelonne, Louise de la Vallière and The Man in the Iron Mask. Dumas rocks!!

4.0 out of 5 stars An Action-filled Classic, Dec 6 2002
By 
Jeffrey (Chula Vista, CA USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Three Musketeers (Mass Market Paperback)
The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas is filled with action in the form of conflict & sword-fights. Set during the reign of Louis XIII & Cardinal Richelieu in France, D'Artagnan seeks enrollment into the Musketeers. But the plot thickens as he courts a woman. There is even more conflict as Milady, a beautiful but demon-like woman, is hunted down by D'Artagnan & company. D'Artagnan also faces several sword-fights against the Cardinal's Guards, and conflicts with the Cardinal himself. There is action on almost every page, and I recommend The Three Musketeers to those looking for an action-filled classic!

4.0 out of 5 stars Three cheers, July 17 2001
By 
G Cairoli (hoboken, nj USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Three Musketeers (Mass Market Paperback)
This was a fun book to read. Period. You won't find any deep philosophy or serious exploration of existence in this little treasure. All you get is murder, mystery, good vs. evil, swashbuckling duels.......need I say more? This book reads like a comic strip as it hurls you into 17th century France where you need to be prepared to draw your sword at the drop of a hat (or handkerchief, as the case may be). Don't get me wrong, although it may be a little campy, this classic adventure still has an engaging story line and great characters. So if you are a bit tired of your mundane life, pick up this novel, yell "Engaurd!", and follow the musketeers through all the twists and turns of this must read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Humor and adventure reign, June 23 2000
This review is from: The Three Musketeers (Mass Market Paperback)
On a whim, I decided to read "The Three Musketeers", and found it to be one of the best classics I've ever read. The king's musketeers, Athos, Porthos and Aramis, plus, of course, D'artangan, are some of the most interesting characters I've ever come across. It's really a fun book to read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! A must read!, July 11 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Three Musketeers (Mass Market Paperback)
This book was one of the most captivating adventure tales I've ever read. It follows the adventures of the four french musketeers (well, three of them are musketeers to start off with): Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and d'Artanagan. The book is filled with swashbuckling action, government and court intriuge, and new plot twists at every turn. It paints a wonderful picture of life in past times, set in the colorful world of post-medieval France. Although young d'Artanagan is the hero of this book, the other characters are just as well portrayed. I particuarly liked Athos: his combonation of nobleness, military genius, sorrow, bitterness, thoughtfulness and mystery made me want to skip ahead to his parts of the book. All in all, this was a wonderful read, and a classic for anyone who loves adventure stories. I could find no qualms with this book, except that it did not keep going. Go out and buy it now! You won't be disappointed. All for one, and one for all!

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful, July 2 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Three Musketeers (Mass Market Paperback)
This book is wonderful and funny. It was detailed and very amusing. Although I thought D'Artagnan was annoying. He was chasing Milady too much and he was stubborn. Well, anyway, I thought this book was great. Everyone should read it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent adventure, April 7 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: The Three Musketeers (Mass Market Paperback)
As anyone who sees my screen name can see, I loved this book. The way Dumas describes his characters' personalities really lets one feel as though one knows them. Each chapter has its own twists and turns, and the ending is really satisfying, especially once one has thought about it for a time. One cannot help but cheer for the musketeers and boo for the antagonists, at least in their heads, as the story unfolds. The four sequels continue the saga of our four friends, and are also commendable.

By A Customer
This review is from: The Three Musketeers (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the best book I have ever read! It is a wonderful adventure that has humor, romance, drama, tradgedy and mystery. All in all, it takes your breath away. Dumas' portrayal of these four loyal and oh so likable companions is so real that you feel that they are your personal friends by the time you are finished with this book. You are far from wasting your time if you pick up The Three Musketeers. This classic story grabs onto your heart and your memory and doesn 't let go for a long time.
