Set in France in the 1620’s, this is a tale of adventure, esponiage, conspiracy, murder, vengeance, love, scandal, and suspense. There is the Comte d’Artagnan, an impetuous young man in pursuit of glory, the evil seductress “Milady,” the powerful and devious Cardinal Richelieu, the weak King Louis with his unhappy Queen, and, of course, the three muscketeers themselves. Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, whose motto of “all for one, one for all” has come to represent friendship. With a plot that delivers stolen diamonds, masked balls, stolen letters, and great bouts of swordplay and fights, this book is infinitely entertaining.
This book was so engaging that I managed to finish it almost in one go in a single day. It was one of the first actually classical book I’ve ever read, and it was GREAT!!!!! I seriously recommend this book to anyone who loves action and historical fiction.
