About the Author
Alexander Dumas was born in 1802 at Villers-Cotterets in France. He received very little education but when he entered the household of the future king, Louis-Philippe, he began to read voraciously and then to write. He is best remembered for his historical novels, The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers. Dumas died in 1870.
Richard Pevear, together with his wife Larissa Volokhonsky, has translated Tolstoy's Anna Karenina as well as works by Fyodor Dostoevsky, Nikolai Gogol, Anton Chekhov, and Mikhail Bulgakov. He has also translated a number of works from French, Italian and Greek. Originally from Boston, he now lives in Paris, where he is Distinguished Professor of Comparative Literature at the American University of Paris.--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

For those not familiar with the writing style of the period, you may find the prose long-winded and a mite unwieldy. However once you are used to the style the storyline carries you along.
Enjoyable, without being a 'page-turner'.

I'm glad I've read this, it's taken me almost two months as while some parts were interesting and readable, other parts were an uphill struggle.
Talking of struggles, I do find translations of classics pretty hard going. While the actual dialogue came across quite campy and amusing, the narrative was dense and dry.
Would i read the rest of this series? No, I've had my fill of Musketeers, reading this one was an achievement and I'm happy to leave things there.
Two stars, I feel the only thing that will prove memorable for me with this book is the pain and length of time of reading it.
many thanks I'll Treasure It.
