it was amazing
bookshelves: listening-to

Bravo! I cannot ever remember reading a book that I wanted to start over as soon as I ended. This was a delight. Obviously well written, but unlike Les Mis, this did not drag, get lost in details and wander off to make the reader lose the story line. The characters while complicated, were also simple. I loved how Dumas wove each persons together so even when it felt as if all was figured out, there was yet another twist or turn. I consider this a must read for any who love books and a good story. This is surely a good reminder of who ultimately gets to deal out vengeance...

Susan I read this when we lived in Turkey. My kids ate lots of cold cereal until I finished it. Great book!
