Publisher's Summary

It is May 1660 and the fate of nations is at stake. Mazarin plots, Louis XIV is in love, and Raoul de Bragelonne, son of Athos, is intent on serving France and winning the heart of Louise de la Valliere.

D'Artagnan, meanwhile, is perplexed by a mysterious stranger, and soon he learns that his old comrades already have great projects in hand. Athos seeks the restoration of Charles II, while Aramis, with Porthos in tow, has a secret plan involving a masked prisoner and the fortification of the island of Belle-Ile.

D'Artagnan finds a thread leading him to the French court, the banks of the Tyne, the beaches of Holland, and the dunes of Brittany.

What the Critics Say

"Alternately melodramatic, sentimental, humorous, wordly, and almost always absorbing." (Irish Times)
"I would sit down with The Vicomte de Bragelonne for a long, silent, solitary, lamplit evening by the fire." (Robert Louis Stevenson)

    "Misrepresentation"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this story...that is to say the part which I listened to. The description of this book leads one to believe that it's the entire novel. However, it was broken into two parts and the second part "Louise de la Valliere" is not yet available on Audible. I am rather annoyed because I have no idea now when I'll be able to see how the story ended. If you like to hear a complete story like me, ensure that the second half is available before downloading this book. That being said, if the second half is as good as the first then I would definitely recommend this.

    "Why didn't I read this stuff sooner"

    After reading The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers, I could completely understand why everyone I know loves the work of Alexandre Dumas. I thought that this book might be greatly inferior to Dumas's better-known work, but this guy can't seem to write a terrible story.

    Humor, action, memorable characters - the more Dumas I read, the more of it I want to read. These books have really aged well, and I see their fingerprints everywhere I look in fantasy and sci-fi.

    I wish I'd known this is kind of The Three Musketeers Part 3 before I went and spoiled bits of Twenty Years Later, which came in between the two books. I thought this was a standalone like The Count of Monte Cristo, but I was incorrect. I could have gotten that tidbit of information from Wikipedia, and I'll soon fill that gap in the narrative, but it is unfortunate that this wasn't described as a sequel in the write-up here on Audible.

    "Dumas' prequel to The Man in the Iron Mask"

    I look forward to the continuation of this story, which is so necessary to the full appreciation of The Man in the Iron Mask. The style of this work far surpasses that of Twenty Years After and closely approaches that of The Three Musketeers and The Man in the Iron Mask. All I ask of Audible is the addition of the second part of this work and the additional of any other work of Dumas that becomes available -- the two remaining parts of Queen Margot, for instance.

    "Love D'Artagnan"

    Well, the story continues with the Vicomte. I enjoy the intrigue and detail to French and English history. I appreciate Simon Vance's ability to make the story come alive. I am looking forward to the last two books in the series.

    Story
    "Beware the 10 yrs after is after the 20 yrs after"
    What did you love best about The Vicomte de Bragelonne?

    The way Alexandre Dumas wove characters in this series together.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    D'Artagnan is always my favorite character. He's a bit impulsive.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

    D'Artagnan.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When D'Artagnan & Raoul (The Vicomt) fought together against the uprising.


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to read the four Dumas novels in sequence. I naturally thought 10 years after was the second in the series. It was the third.

    "Too slow."

    I downloaded this because I LOVED The Three Musketeers and was anxious for another fun "classic" read, but I just couldn't get through this one! It moved too slowly with too many sub-stories and details to keep my interest. Once I got into the Musketeers I couldn't stop listening, but this one felt like homework to listen to. The narrator was nice, though I prefer John Lee's D'Artagnan. I'm throwing in the towel and moving on to something more interesting.
