I m not going to waste time than necessary for this classic The problem seems to come from me since I couldn t follow a lot of the dialog I couldn t make any sense of what transpired here especially in the last third of the bookI liked the intrigue with the royal couple of LouisXIII and Anne d Autruche And as soon as these historical characters disappeared from the book did my enjoyment evaporate as well Like I said I don t want to dwell on this one starred book too muchone for all and all for oneHaving said that I read the book in French and I think if I hadn t if I d read it in English I wouldn t have been able to finish the book The French language was a novelty which kept me going I simply cannot enjoy most classics Now to move onwards as soon as I m able to

Random thoughts on The Three Musketeers because my brain refuses to write a full review Reading The Three Musketeers was long overdue The truth is it was the very first story I loved as a child I was four years old and my favorite game was riding my imaginary steed in a desperate race to save Constance from evil Cardinal Richelieu I grew up swallowing tales of the valiant Musketeers and they became a part of my soul Apparently there is a literary genre called swashbuckler that focuses on swordfighting and adventurous heroic characters and The Three Musketeers is the most prominent example Live and learn my friends live and learn Plotwise it was everything I expected and some Scheming fights bravery romanticism dangerous affairs loyalty revenge Alexandre Dumas surely knew how to write a compelling and entertaining story with a great insight on historical figures and events while occassionally inserting a sarcastic comment or two Well played sir well played My world crumbled when I realised that Cardinal Richelieu was not that bad cue the violins An antagonist sure but he admired D Artagnan Aramis Porthos and Athos and that contradicted the demon I had in mind Milady de Winter though was the devil incarnate She managed to seduce and misguide every single unfortunate man she encountered that was a superpower if you ask me She managed to discover her victim s weakness and exploit it to her benefit Goosebumps As regards the characters I must admit that D Artagnan was rather fickle in his affections being an advocate for insta love However D Artagnan and Constance were GOALS in my childish fantasies which were encouraged by BBC s The Musketeers go watch it people and I am not going to shed them Setting aside his enthusiastic romantic nature D Artagnan had a sharp mind that verified my need to idolize him cut me some slack he was my first love Athos must be protected at all costs The last chapters were really upsetting and totally unexpected The death toll was HIGH the most heart breaking death caused by naivety stupidity and I made the mature adult decision to pretend that it didn t happen Sue me

Summary ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Alexandre Dumas

review Les Trois Mousuetaires Summary ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ☆ Alexandre Dumas Alexandre Dumas ☆ 7 characters The classic adventure from the author of The Count of Monte Cristo and The Man in the Iron MaskIn this swashbuckling epic d’Artagnan not yet twenty sets off for Paris in hopes of joining the Musketeers that legion of heroes highly favored by King Louis XIII and feared by evil Cardinal Richelieu By fighting alongside Athos. I thought that ueen Margot couldn t be topped I should have known better Honestly I do not have enough space to fully explain all the ways I adore this book But I ll try to condense it First the four main characters Love love love and love Aramis and Porthos the Merry and Pippin of the group if you ll excuse the extremely dorkish LOTR cross reference made me laugh D Artagnan was charming even though or maybe because he had multiple moments where were I in the story I wouldn t know whether to kiss him or smack him upside the head and the pure unfiltered AWESOME that is Athos cannot be put into words My copy of the book is 754 pages but I was able to finish it in less than two weeks and not even notice the length because the story was so engrossing As soon as I finished it I wanted to flip back to page 1 and start all over again Duels Lots and lots of duels The only complaint I had regarding the other Dumas book I d read before this ueen Margot as previously mentioned was that there was a total lack of what I will bluntly call the dirty details In Margot all the sex scenes were kept out of the way and judging by the description Dumas gave us of the characters nighttime activities no one managed to get laid for the entire book The Three Musketeers on the other hand is by no means a bodice ripper but is still very romantic And then there s the scene where D Artagnan decides that nailing Milady will be a good way to get revenge on her for kidnapping his girlfriend Which brings me to my next point Milady Holy crap I try to come up with words to describe her but I can t do it because my brain sort of slows down until all I can hear are the words Most Badass Character Ever repeating in my head over and over while the song Cold Hard Bitch by JET starts playing in the background if that makes any sense at all Just go with it okay But seriously let s talk about Milady for a minute She keeps poison in her ring seduces a guard who has been specifically warned that she ll try to seduce him stabs herself in the chest to make people think she killed herself regularly tries to assassinate D Artagnan and his friends and was generally such a psychotic bitch that even Cardinal Richelieu was afraid of her UPDATEDear HollywoodWhat the FUCK is wrong with you Seriously fuck you guys LoveMadeline
