Absolutely fantastic. The story of young D'Artagnan as he became absorbed in court intrigues and daring acts of bravado was fun to read, and never once slowed down in its entirety. Within the first 60 pages, in fact, there are three duels and one all out street brawl that eventually nearly ends in a house being set on fire. And that's just how it starts.

It's not often a book is hard to put down, but Dumas found a way to take the story of an aspiring Musketeer under Louis XIII and successfully made it into precisely that type of book. Much like The Count of Monte Cristo, the characters in Three Musketeers are understandable and believable, with a few even being relate-able (no small feat with this particular subject matter).

If you're a fan of swashbuckling adventure mixed with dangerous liaisons and exciting characters, The Three Musketeers is the way to go.
