Dumas' La Reine Margot brings high adventure and romantic ups/downs much like that found in Three Musketeers. One may think this would become old and tired, even predictable. But no! Dumas takes historical characters and events, turns and tweaks them to his own desires and reveals a world of intrigue, murder, and excitement. Catherine, the queen-mother, is by far the most wretched and vile, with multiple murder plots, poisonings, arrests, etc. Not always having the heros/heroines prevail is a nice change in works such as this.
Vive le Roi!! or
