Quite apart from being a terrific read I just couldn t put it down Les Trois Mousquetaires is a remarkably interesting book for anyone who s fond This is a kick ass novel, and I am indeed kicking my own ass for not having read it earlier I m ashamed to say that I thought it was a children s book My wife indignantly refuses any responsibility for my mistake as she points out, it s entirely my fault if I drew the wrong inferences from the fact that her mother read it aloud to her as an eight year old It turns out, on closer examination of the facts, that Elisabeth s mom must have skipped about a quarter of the text but I digress No, far from being a children s book, this is a noirish thriller, stuffed to the gills with violence, sex, nudity, dangerous blondes, corrupt politicians and random acts of mayhem and destruction I should have known that Anyway, better late than never.

I hear you saying, How on Earth can that be a guilty pleasure I know It s a recognized classic It has far reaching pop culture impact.
It s considered one of the greatest adventures ever written It has two of the most memorable villains in literature it has four kick ass action heroes It has sword fights, romance, intrigue, and most people think it has big laughs it doesn t, which is the thing that pisses me off most about its pop culture adaptations Even if people haven t read the book they know the Three Musketeers Hell, most people even know that D Artagnan, the main hero of the book, is not one of the eponymous Three So how could this book be a guilty pleasure The answer is simple at first, the I m not going to wastetime than necessary for this classic The problem seems to come from me, since I couldn t follow a lot of the dialog I couldn t make any sense of what transpired here, especially in the last third of the book.
I liked the intrigue with the royal couple of LouisXIII and Anne d Autruche And as soon as these historical characters disappeared from the book did my enjoyment evaporate as well Like I said, I don t want to dwell on this one starred book too much one for all, and all for one.
Having said that, I read the book in French and I think if I hadn t, if I d read it in English I wouldn t have been able to finish the book The French language was a novelty which kept me going I simply cannot enjoy most classics Now I DID ITSee my video I am a drama addict I admit it I don t generally go for comedy I will pick a movie that makes me cry over one that makes me laugh every time, and it is pretty much the same with my books But when I do read something humorous, I love satire, wit, subtle humor Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde or Will Rogers are my style Imagine my surprise that Alexander Dumas has made me laugh aloud in The Three Musketeers They are so over the top, while written as if he is endeavoring to take them seriously I have long adored The Count of Monte Cristo, and so I have never thought of Monsieur Dumas as a humorist, but I have been sadly mistaken.
Every time you think D Artagnan and company have landed themselves in an impossible situation, they miraculously find their way out It is Don Quixote without any of the moral overtones These men are heroic fig Most people know the story At the very least, they know about the story or they can quote that famous line I was one of those peeps I had never bothered to read the book because I saw an adaptation or two lolI m so silly So I finally read the book and it was better Surprise, surprise, right There s even MORE pathos, chivalry, swordplay, hails of bullets, swooning maidens, and truly an evil Cardinal and a nasty Milady to butt heads against At first, I honestly thought the over the top preoccupation with honor and revenge was the brilliant prelude to a great satire, but it never lets up and there s never a punchline.
