For many, the story three musketeers is limited to movies. Movies capture less than half the book and lose the wonder characters and development of the novel. Even if you think you know this book from the movies, it is worth listening to. Extremely well performed reading.
Great story, wonderful book, excellent rendition. One of the best works ever written. I thoroughly enjoyed this and look forward to re-reading it in the future.
I really like to read, and when I discovered I could get things done while listening to my favorite books, it was a light bulb moment.
If you've never read or listened to this book, do yourself a great favor! It is wonderful!
I lived this book it took forever to finish it but it was completely worth it. The story is just deal and full of colorful characters definitely will be listening to it again.
I wanted to reread 3M, and because I learned French from Pee-Wee Herman and can't even pronounce the occasional French word in an English translation, I hit on the idea of "immersive reading", which is following along in a Kindle book while listening to the audio book. Glad I did! The narrator was outstanding, and the story is just as exciting as I remembered from my last reading decades ago.
Athos is my favorite character. He's more restrained, and more dangerous than the others. Although he alludes several times to d'Artagnan's leadership of the group because he has the occasional clever idea, Athos is clearly the leader.
This is my first John Lee audio book, but I'll look for others now.
It's a rather long book, and seems to have been written in episodes, as if it were originally published as a serial. It took me about ten days to listen to the whole book, but there were plenty of chapter breaks, so I never had to pause awkwardly in the middle of a scene.
On to "Twenty Years After" and "The Count of Monte Cristo".
In honesty, the only issue I had with the reading was that it kept alternating between loud and quiet, often in the same sentence. This caused enormous frustration, however, forcing me to constantly turn the volume up and down.
Superb work by the genius, Dumas. Almost as good as The Count of Monte Cristo. But that is without peer. Excellently narrated. I hated for it to end.
This was a page turner; a classic story of intrigue, swashbuckling, and daring do. The narrator was perfect. He kept me engaged and eagerly awaiting the next chapter. Highly recommended.
