Grand story full of swashbuckling and derring-do, with memorable villains and flawed heroes. Dumas style is very readable, although he was paid by the line and perhaps it is too wordy for its own good sometimes.

As I read, I was impressed by how some of the actions of d'Artagnan and company are less that commendable. They are not as perfect as many cinematographic adaptations might make us think. They can be larger than life, they are loyal, brave and generous, but also too eager to kill or be killed for trivial matters of honor, they don't treat their servants that well, they can be vain, superficial and less than honest in certain dealings of the heart. In the beginning I thought that it was because of how long ago the book was written that some of the actions of the protagonists struck me as less than heroic. Later, however, I realized that this moral ambiguity was intended, and the book rose in my estimation because of that.

It has, of course, several moments that are forever engraved in the collective imagination of all who love adventure stories, scenes of enormous melodramatic intensity. ( )

This is not my normal type of book to read, but I found a used a copy of it and figured its one I should know something about. And, its good. At times, over the top with annoying characters who really define the word "fops". However, as an adventure story, its fun. However, read as a satire of the French Culture, it shines. From immediately falling in love with a lady, to immediate sword duels on insult of a horse - the best books are those that can be read on multiple levels. ( )

J'ai pris cela en place dans les années à Paris plusieurs dos et même si je savais l'histoire des films, j'ai trouvé la lecture de l'original français tout à fait une balade. Je suis toujours méfiant de lire des traductions. Même si beaucoup sont étonnamment bien fait, j'ai découvert que quelque chose d'intrinsèque est souvent perdu à moins que le traducteur est vraiment bon à leur travail. Personnellement, je pense que la littérature espagnole souffre le plus de cette maladie dans l'hémisphère occidental. C'est une histoire merveilleuse et un excellent début de cette série, un jour je vais avoir à le lire en anglais. J'espère qu'il sera tout aussi excitant! (même si Keifer Sutherland n'est pas en elle)

I picked this up while in Paris several years back and while I knew the story from the films, I found reading it in the original French to be quite a thrilling ride. I am always leery of reading translations. Even though many are done amazingly well, I've discovered that something intrinsic is often lost unless the translator is really good at their work. Personally I think spanish literature suffers the most from this malady in the western hemisphere. This is a wonderful story and an excellent start to this series, one day I'll get around to reading it in English. I'm hoping it will be just as exciting! (even if Keifer Sutherland isn't in it) ( )

Such books can't have a proper intelligent and weighted rating. It's pure classic to read in that right teen age and open the world of high adventure with it. It's like a first girlfriend in some sense of wordplay :).

Probably that is why I re-read this book many times but couldn't even finish continuations (or any other Dumas book for that matter). One can't enter the same river twice. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
On the first Monday of April 1625, the market town of Meung, the birthplace of the author of the Roman de la Rose, was in a wild state of excitement.
[Author's Preface] It is about a year ago, that in making researches in the Bibliotheque Nationale for my History of Louis the Fourteenth, I by chance met with the Memoirs of Monsieur d'Artagnan, printed by Peter the Red at Amsterdam – as the principal works of that period, when authors could not adhere to the truth without running the risk of the Bastile, generally were.
[Epilogue] La Rochelle, deprived of the assistance of the English fleet, and of the succour which had been promised by Buckingham, surrendered after a year's siege.
Quotations
Athos: Well, D'Artagnan, if he doesn't come, it will be because of some delay. He may have tumbled off his horse or fallen on some slippery deck or ridden so fast against the wind that he is ill with a fever. Let us allow for the unforseen, gentlemen, since all is a gamble and life is a chaplet of minor miseries which, bead by bead, your philosopher tells with a smile. Be philosophers as I am, friends; sit down here and let us drink.
D'Artagnan's father: A gentleman makes his way by his courage; by his courage alone! Whosoever trembles but for a second has perhaps lost the bait which fortune held out to him in precisely that second.

Disambiguation notice
This is the main work for The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas père. It should not be combined with any adaptation, abridgement, etc.

This work has also been published (complete and unabridged) under the ISBN 1-55902-983-8 by Aerie Publications, which apparently decided to break the rules and publish multiple classics under the same ISBN.

Book description
This swashbuckling epic of chivalry, honor, and derring-do, set in France during the 1620s, is richly populated with romantic heroes, unattainable heroines, kings, queens, cavaliers, and criminals in a whirl of adventure, espionage, conspiracy, murder, vengeance, love, scandal, and suspense. Dumas transforms minor historical figures into larger- than-life characters: the Comte d’Artagnan, an impetuous young man in pursuit of glory; the beguilingly evil seductress “Milady”; the powerful and devious Cardinal Richelieu; the weak King Louis XIII and his unhappy queen—and, of course, the three musketeers themselves, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, whose motto “all for one, one for all” has come to epitomize devoted friendship. With a plot that delivers stolen diamonds, masked balls, purloined letters, and, of course, great bouts of swordplay, The Three Musketeers is eternally entertaining.
