Publisher's Summary

A BBC Radio 4 dramatisation of Alexandre Dumas’s swashbuckling epic, starring Jamie Glover, Robert Glenister and Timothy Spall.

"All for one and one for all"....

17th Century France. Dashing young swordsman D’Artagnan heads for Paris, dreaming of serving the King as a member of his elite guard. On arrival, he meets the three musketeers - Athos, Porthos and Aramis - and the four men soon become fast friends.

Together, they strive to outwit the murderous schemes of power-hungry Cardinal Richelieu, and save the Queen from a plot to dishonour her.

Their adventures take them on a perilous journey through the French countryside and across the Channel to England....

Now a major motion picture starring Logan Lerman, Matthew Macfadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson, The Three Musketeers is a thrilling action-adventure full of duelling, danger, courage and camaraderie.

This BBC Radio 4 version was dramatised by James Saunders.

Too abridged for me, wonderful actors

This version was too abridged for me. That said, the performances are very fine. Though sometimes I thought some dialogues were delivered too softly to be heard clearly. To be clear, I usually listen with good headphones.

Fast paced and fun

The voices were good; it was a bit frustrating that some of my favourite scenes were cut, though.

Three Musketeers

A good story that was well performed by all. My only frustration being the words were often difficult to discern and I therefore missed pieces that may have been important.

Lacklustre, abridged, not a great start to my Audible experience

Am approximately 1/3 way through reading the book and just not getting round to it, so figured listening to this in the car would be a good way to re-engage. My first experience of Audible.
Firstly, the production: whatever it may say in the blurb, it's abridged. It also falls halfway between being a reading and a radio performance, with a full (impressive) cast but sound effects akin to banging 2 teaspoons together to represent a gallant sword fight.
As for the underlying story, perhaps I have had my expectations altered by the sheer volume of versions, interpretations and updates f these famous characters, but I was left funding the plot not especially compelling, pretty disjointed, and a vehicle for a reasonably uninspiring group fronted by a foppish D'Artagnan.

I hope for better things with subsequent audiobooks.
