Great way to read great books on the go. Love Sci Fi especially Orson Scott Card and Star Wars.
This is one of the top five audiobooks that I have read.
It is hard to compare this book others as it is such a source of inspiration for other stories. It is in the vein of great adventures like treasure Island and The Princess Bride.
Excellent pronounciation of words in a genuine French accent.
The action sequences are quite great. Much better than any on screen adaptation I ahve seen.
If you are like me you are looking at this book after having seen movie adaptations. Prepare to realize just how great D'artangan truly is!
Audible offers several versions of The Three Musketeers. I'm now in the middle of part three of the one narrated by John Lee, which somehow did not appear on the list I got by search for Dumas under authors. I recommend the John Lee version highly, though I haven't listened to the others. Don't know if the translation is the same for all the narrators, but I was happy to find that the version I downloaded to my Kindle is the same as the one narrated by Mr. Lee. Listen to samples before you choose.
This read tended to the slow side. It ended too precipitously. It is not nearly as captivating as "The Count of Monte Christo". The narrative centered too much on the demonic antagonist rather than on the honorable protagonists. Nonetheless, it is still a worthwhile listen.
The author's account of the historical characters of the times is fascinating. One of my next listens will be a historical review of French politics of the early 1800's.
The use of the English language in the 1800's is wonderful. I wish we still talked as they did.
Mr. Lee is, as always, a superlative narrator.
It took me a little while to get into the story and narrator. After a few chapters, I became fully engaged in the characters and story. The narrator was very good, and did different voices a bit. There are many French names and phrases, all of which were overly pronounced by the narrator. I found that initially distracting, and is not true to the original work, which would not have had constant shifts in language. But it soon became routine and easily ignored. The story itself was quite interesting, and had plenty of action, intrigue, romance, and humor. The historical setting was also very interesting. I'm very glad to have now experienced this classic work.
