I thought that this book was good because it had a lot of action and adventure. The daring move that Arrimas and Porthos try to switch the king with his twin brother that his been a prison for his whole life. The reason that I liked this book so much was there was a big problem and there was a chain of events. I really liked The Man In The Iron Mask.
I tried to like this book. I watched a TV adaptation, and listened to it on CD. I just couldn't understand all the plots going on, all the people involved and in significance of a whole CD devoted to describe what the king was going to wear to a fete. I was totally mixed up and lost the whole time. I must be good, it's a classic, but I didn't get it.
I can imagine the difficulty to read the original literature after taking a quick look at this version written for younger readers. The plot is way too complicated and one can anticipate a lot of actions and fighting. Enjoyable nevertheless.
