Product Description

From School Library Journal

Grade 6 Up-With swelling musical background, the clash of swordplay, and the occasional thump of a head being cut off, the St. Charles Players bring back the feeling of radio theater in their rendition of the classic tale by Alexandre Dumas. The players' voices emit every nuance required to let listeners experience the swashbuckling deeds of the famous heroic threesome and the boy called D'Artagnan who wants to join their ranks. When the young man arrives in Paris with the wish to enlist with the King's Musketeers, he finds himself challenged to three duels in his first afternoon in the city by men who turn out to be Porthos, Aramis, and Athos-the Three Musketeers. Instead of fighting against them, the twists of fate have D'Artagnan battling for them against the evil Cardinal Richelieu's guards. After demonstrating his worth with a sword, D'Artagnan proves more of his mettle by journeying to England to foil a plot to embarrass France's Queen Anne, the former Anne of Austria. D'Artagnan saves his queen but loses the woman he loves, so he seeks vengeance and, in turn, instills himself firmly in the ranks of the Musketeers. The flavor of the original is evident even though this abridged version includes only highlights in its retelling.

From Library Journal

A perennial favorite, this work continues to hold appeal for adventure lovers. Full of intrigue, swordplay, and revenge, it is the story of d'Artagnan, a young nobleman who travels to Paris in hopes of joining the Musketeers, a group of swashbuckling adventurers who serve King Louis XIII. His wit and fighting ability make d'Artagnan a welcome addition to their ranks, and together the four young men work to foil the King's evil rival, Cardinal Richelieu. Despite the period setting and constant violence, the story captures and sustains the listener's interest as the Musketeers vanquish the villains. Michael York reads superbly, his rich baritone voice giving each role convincing clarity. The audio format is particularly suited to the tale. The production quality is excellent. Recommended for general collections.

I am only about Half way through the 750 page story of how these young aristocratic adventuresome men, estranged from their families, live an alternative life in the elite corps of Louis XIII's Musketeers. The language used by Alexandre Dumas is, to me, delightfully archaic and amusing departure from modern English. I suspect the translation from its original French has more than a few inaccuracies, but it nevertheless makes for a very diverting bedtime or waiting room read.

A classic. I've read it several times and love my beat-up paperback but this copy means I can bring it with me wherever I have my tablet, too. This book is intense, hilarious and clever. A story I'll always enjoy.

This translation of The Three Musketeers is a joy to read on Kindle. Not only are the typos at a bare minimum, but the story has been translated extermely well. I have thoroughly enjoyed re-reading this classic that I studied (and thus didn't enjoy nearly as much) years ago. Highly recommend this title.

My e-book version of The Three Musketeers arrived safely with no electronic glitches. This is one of my favourite historical fiction books of all time, and I enjoyed reading it again. I will probably reread it a few more times! Highly recommended.

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!

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.

Format: Audio Cassette
What can I say? My first connection with anything to do with Dumas, D' Artagnan, or the Musketeers came from this "abridged" audio book. Michael York is a very compelling narrator, so much so that I read The Three Musketeers for the first time immediately after finishing this audio book. Though I wish he had narrated an "unabridged" version I could not neglect to praise this work. The Three Musketeers is my favorite novel, having read it for the first time nearly a decade ago. This book still captivates my soul. And contrary to common Hollywood interpretation, the story is neither about Casanovas or sword-fighting. All of these features are here, but the entire collection of the D' Artagnan Romances is the chronicle of the ever-enduring friendship of four men. I strongly suggest you read all five (yes, five) of the D' Artagnan Romances. It will teach you more about the sacrifices that true friends will make than any other work of fiction I am familiar with. And this audio book is a great place to start.
