      I’ve seen several movie versions of the classic book The Three Musketeers. But, it was only recently that I found the time to sit down and actually read it.

      I’m not sure if I liked it better than the movies, but I will say it does give quite a bit more detail than the movies do.

      Probably the most revealing


      fact for me is I never knew Athos Porthos and Aramis were aliases assumed by the three musketeers because of them hiding from their past. And, I like how Dumas takes the time to give a brief history of the three without having that take over the entire book.

      As far as the book is concerned though, he really should ...


      • have stayed a bit more focused. The four heroes have one big adventure and a couple major villains to face but it keeps going off in different directions so much it’s actually a bit confusing at times. You also have a couple lesser villains (like the Cardinal’s right-hand man) who pretty much just disappear by the end of
        the book. I think Dumas was trying to do too much in this book and eventually had to end some things without giving any real closure.

        It’s an OK book that I would recommend reading, simply so you get the full story rather than what you just see in the movies. But, at least for me, I think the movies were better.
