Editorial Reviews

Of course you've heard of the three famous swordsmen, but did you know that the novel is really funny, as well as replete with romance and adventure? John Lee does, and his narration plays up all three attributes to great effect. For those who need a reminder, Dumas's classic adventure presents the escapades of three of King Louis's musketeers, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, plus D'Artagnan (a musketeer in training) as they foil a few of Cardinal Richelieu's many devious plots. Amid much swordplay, they actually utter the famous line: "All for one and one for all." Lee struggles a bit with accents and characterizations early in the production. His hesitations disappear after a few chapters, however, and he gives fine voice to the rest of the madcap tale.

Publisher's Summary

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.

They don't make them like this anymore

Enjoyable, romp through 17th Century France, and briefly, England, with colorful heroes and really vile villains, both male and female.

Classic, but not a favorite of mine

I really thought I would like this book so much more than I did!
I think I like the idea of it more than the actual facts of the story.
I listened to the whole thing and was dismayed because doggone it, I like it when the good guys win decisively and I have a happy ending.
So the decadent lifestyles were distressing to me and I wanted different outcomes to many parts.
So I see why it's a classic, but I won't listen to it again. Just not my cup of tea.

Not to be missed

Not only does the story-telling of Dumas put most novels to shame, but also the voice performance of John Lee is unparalleled.

Masterful writing paired with masterful reading.

Totally immersive, stunningly precise and beautiful translation, riveting from beginning to end. John Lee deserves the hall of fame for his delivery.

Need to know some French

What disappointed you about The Three Musketeers?

Eventhough this book is read in English, the listener needs to know a little French to understand the mean of some of the phrases being read. I love the story, but after 3 chapters, I got tired of try to understand the French phases and started listening to another book.

Wonderful!

I had forgotten what a good story this tale was. John Lee's reading is phenomenal. Who knew so many accents were in one person? And now I finally know how to pronounce some of those French terms!

Another exceptional performance by John Lee!

The book was good. I hadn't realized that the book was mainly about d'Artagnan and seen mostly through his eyes.
