really liked it
bookshelves: historical-fiction, classics

This is the third book in the Musketeers Trilogy which is generally split into three volumes for the English translation: The Vicomte de Bragelonne, Louise de la Vallière, and The Man in the Iron Mask. It was pretty average for a Dumas book. He wrote better and he wrote worse. If you liked both The Three Musketeers and Twenty Years After, you'll probably like this too. I think it was actually an improvement on Twenty Years After. Probably worth mentioning is that Dumas makes a huge amount of unexplained references to the first two books in the series, especially in the first third of this book. He makes it very clear that you should have read both The Three Musketeers and Twenty Years After before reading this and that you should remember everything about them. I found this annoying at times because it's been years since I read the others.
