From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
The Three Musketeers is a book set in 17th century France during the rule of King Louis the 13th. The book tells the story of a young man from Gascon, d’Artagnan’s adventures with his close friends, the titular three musketeers in the book’s title, Athos, Porthos and Aramis. It describes how the four, under the watch of their captain, Monsieur de Treville, fight against the corrupt Cardinal Richelieu and his machinations, along with defending the honor of Queen Anne of Austria from said machinations. They have many encounters with the Cardinal’s allies in their quest, and face many hardships along the way, such as d’Artagnan’s love for Madame Bonancieux, who is wed to one of the Cardinal’s allies and is captured, with d’Artagnan able to do nothing about that.
I’d give this book about an 8 out of 10. I found myself invested in the story and characters and wanted to know what happened next to the four main characters as well as Madame Bonancieux after she got captured early in the book. However, I wasn’t too fond of the small text, as I found it rather hard to read because of said small text. The small text also made it somewhat difficult for me to keep track of what was going on in the story, though those are really just minor nitpicks from me.
I would recommend this book to those who are interested in French culture and those who like action and drama, as the book is set in France a few hundred years ago, which obvously would mean it has French culture within it. and the story also had plenty of action and drama within it, especially the latter.
