really liked it
Read in April, 2012

Finally got my hands on a non-altered, non-shortened version of this (except it was a translation) which made this read better than the previous ones.

Is it weird that I find the musketeers childish (yet funny) and mylady a likeable character? Sure, she did kill some innocents, but before that. A good husband does not HANG HIS WIFE IN A TREE when he finds out she's a criminal - looking at you, Athos. As for d'Artagnan: Who pretends to be someone's boyfriend and has sex with them in the darkness? Actually, local dude did some ten years ago (and Uther did, btw Igraine is a tit). Guess who didn't think it was a funny musketeer prank? Cops and court!

I know, no use to question the morals of old books taking place hundreds of years ago. Better be happy things have moved forward. Still, it's interesting to see how things change and I hope I'm not the only one to root for mylady.
