Overview

Mixing a bit of seventeenth-century French history with a great deal of invention, Alexandre Dumas tells the tale of young D'Artagnan and his musketeer comrades, Porthos, Athos, and Aramis. Together they fight to foil the schemes of the brilliant, dangerous Cardinal Richelieu, who pretends to support the king while plotting to advance his own power. Bursting with swirling swordplay, swooning romance, and unforgettable figures-including the seductively beautiful but deadly femme fatale, Milady, and D'Artagnan's equally beautiful love, Madame Bonacieux-The Three Musketeers continues, after a century and a half of continuous publication, to define the genre of swashbuckling romance and historical adventure.

Wonderful book. Great action and intrigue through the whole book. Does not feel dated or hard to absorb at all despite being written over 150 years ago! John Lee the narrator is one of my all time favorites. He does a great job of pronouncing the French names and places, as well as properly addressing tone and emotion in the dialogue. I’ve listened to 3-4 books narrated by him thus far and will look for more. For those who appreciate the classics this one is an absolute must.
