The classic adventure from the author of The Count of Monte Cristo and The Man in the Iron Mask . In 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, Porthos, and Aramis as they battle their enemies, d'Artagnan proves he has the heart of a Musketeer and earns himself a place in their ranks. Soon d'Artagnan and the gallant trio must use all their wits and sword skills to preserve the queen's honor and thwart the wicked schemes of Cardinal Richelieu. With this classic tale, Dumas embroiders upon history a colorful world of swordplay, intrigue, and romance, earning The Three Musketeers its reputation as one of the most thrilling adventure novels ever written.

Very entertaining. Evil is very large and has many hands in this novel. The good are few. But they are but they pleasantly cunning, forever loyal, strong in character and brilliant with their blades. We need more musketeers in our world.

"I am at the age of wild hopes, Monseigneur," said d'Artagnan.

Wow! the book is outstanding. I am sorry to say that the most recent movie with Logan lerman as dartagnan has completely butchered the book. this book has plenty of suspense and heroism to make it a true classic. You really just can't find good and true historical fiction these days anymore. Most of the stuff that's written nowadays is just about who falls in love with who and the nasty stuff that follows. I wish someone would actually write some good historical fiction that was NOT soaked in the "Overly romantic and lovey dovey romance " stuff.

The first modern swashbuckler and still the best! especially in the Richard Pevear translation.

Would've preferred to read it in French. Excellent ribald humor.
This is the first of four novels leading to "The Man In the Iron Mask".
