Kara (karaayako) | 3980 comments How are your books going for September?


Theresa~OctoberLace (octoberlace) | 773 comments Just a quick note...Claude and I read The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas during a month that ended up very busy for both of us. We both loved it and rated it 4.5 stars. One of us will follow up with a few comments tomorrow.


message 18: by Claude (new)

Claude Bunce (kablammo55) | 109 comments Yep, me and Theresa~OctoberLace both really enjoyed reading The Three Musketeers, even though we experienced it in different mediums. Theresa listened to an audio book, while I read and annotated a paperback copy.

We both loved the historical aspect of the book, and found that there was a lot of humour in the shenanigans between the four heroes, D'Artagnan, Athos, Porthos and Aramis, and we agreed that Lady de Winter is one of the greatest villainesses. I found it hard to reconcile myself with the slight sexist undertones that were throughout, but we both agreed that it was a book of its time and it is an issue we just need to deal with in older books.

I think that's it. I'm sure Theresa will add anything we might have missed. I know that she is going to be continuing the D'Artagnan romances, and I might return to them at some point myself. It was a really great book to read, and I'm glad I did it with someone else, it really motivated me to finish it! Hope Everyone else had a good time this month as well!
