Publisher's Summary

The Three Musketeers (French: Les Trois Mousquetaires) is a historical adventure novel written in 1844 by French author Alexandre Dumas. 

Set in 1625 to 1628, it recounts the adventures of a young man named d'Artagnan (based on Charles de Batz-Castelmore d'Artagnan) after he leaves home to travel to Paris to join the Musketeers of the Guard. Although d'Artagnan is not able to join this elite corps immediately, he befriends the three most formidable musketeers of the age - Athos, Porthos and Aramis - and gets involved in affairs of the state and court.  

In genre, The Three Musketeers is primarily a historical and adventure novel. However, Dumas also frequently works into the plot various injustices, abuses, and absurdities of the old regime, giving the novel an additional political aspect at a time when the debate in France between Republicans and Monarchists was still fierce. 

The story was first serialized from March to July 1844, during the July Monarchy, four years before the French Revolution of 1848 violently established the Second Republic. The author's father, Thomas-Alexandre Dumas, had been a well-known general in France's Republican army during the French Revolutionary Wars.  

The story of d'Artagnan is continued in Twenty Years After and The Vicomte of Bragelonne: Ten Years Later.

This Title is Available Free on Librivox

That's right FREE. Mark Smith the narrator spent a minimum of 70 hours recording this title where it is available on Librivox free. The title is in the public domain, and the publisher is within their rights to publish this title, but it burns me that Mark donated his talent and time to produce this audiobook only to have this publisher profit from his effort.
