    (850)

    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.

    Where does The Three Musketeers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've only listened to audiobooks on long road trips before, so that was my intention when I purchased this audiobook. I was so captivated by the story; John Lee's excellent storytelling really brings Dumas' characters to life. I kept listening long after the trip was over. I listened while walking my dog, when I was working, and it made the best kind of bedtime story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I quickly fell in love with the novel's protagonist, young D'Artagnan, who is around my age. He won my heart, but Athos won my everything else. Cool, clever, and with the irresistible "tortured hero" background story, it's no surprise he's a leader within the group.


    What about John Lee’s performance did you like?

    John Lee made sure each character had a distinct voice, so even when it wasn't stated, I could easily recognize which character was speaking. Lee's voice is just a pleasure to hear and he narrated excellently. Every bit of tension feels so real; it feels like you're actually in the story!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and though it's nearly 24 hours in total and took me about 3 weeks to listen to completely, I devoted every second of my spare time to listening to this audiobook.


    Any additional comments?

    A must-have for fans of adventure!
