    "Humour and intrigues"

    Loved the humour of this book, very different to the Count of Monte Cristo. At times hilarious with the adventures D'Artagnan contrasted with the sinister behaviour of the protagonist and sad demise of several characters. Ripping good read.

    "Take the Long Road Home...the Best Audible"
    Would you listen to The Three Musketeers again? Why?

    Not only a re listen but the stimulus to a listen to all of Dumas with the COUNT having the slight edge. This is captivating, humorous, luminous, intriguing. This is 21st century writing in the guise of the 17thC court. These are heroes, villains and a wonderful stew of retribution in every shade. This is not a kid's book, this is not your GrandMa's Dumas, this is not stodge. This is joy, laugh out loud and yelling from the top row: 'Get the villain...watch out'.


    What other book might you compare The Three Musketeers to and why?

    The Count of Monte Cristo has a sharper edge and plot line with a single protagonist and a singular path to revenge BUT the Musketeers are droll, driven by honor and seduction and never failing in their devotion.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There is a wonderful, conflicted attempt of D'Artagnon to save the reputation of Anne of Austria; Queen of France and lover of the Duke of Buckingham. Beware of starting this section at midnight as your partner will see the light burn for the next hours


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughter, guffaws, belly cries and the reduction of any desire to ever 'get even'

    "Great book."

    There is a part towards the end where it gets REALLY slow and I know there was some interesting bits but for about an hour or maybe two it kinda drags when it could of been better. But I loved the story it was my first time through it.

    "Dumas never disappoints!"

    Fabulous characters. Wonderful adventure. Classic Dumas. Compelling story with a performance that manages to give voice to each character in his or her own accent/dialect thus making the story come to life. Absolutely recommend for males and females of all ages. The Three Muskateers hasn't lost its flavor through the course of time. It's appeal is universal. I thoroughly enjoyed this Audible book.

    "One of the true classics!"

    Will take the reader /listeners well beyond the pop culture/movie view of the 3 musketeers, their characters and the time they lived in through the authors view approx 200 years after this fictionalized account of royal intrigues were to have taken place (1600s). Neither the main characters, nor time period were what id thought they would be.

    Mixture of fact and fiction make for an interesting tale that kept my attention throughout.

    At around 25 hr listening time, it does take a while to finish - but definitely worth it.

    "Not my favorite Dumas story or audio book"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I'd listen to a different Dumas story. I really liked The Count of Monte Cristo narrated by Andrew Timothy.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    It was hard to follow the narrator and the story was not nearly as action packed or interesting as I expected.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I really enjoyed the action packed movies. This story was much less interesting.

    "Couldn't get through it. hated the narrator."
    What disappointed you about The Three Musketeers?

    I had loved the Count of Monte Christo and thought I'd try another of Dumas' classics. It was a mistake


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Bill Homewood?

    I'm afraid I didn't like his overly dramatic voice which is bouncy with enthusiasm in a way I found irritating.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Sorry but I couldn't get past the voice.

    Dumas sure knows how to write a captivating story. The narrator was excellent, I will definitely be listening to the other Dumas books he's performed!
