The young and headstrong D'Artagnan, having proven his bravery by dueling with each, becomes a friend of Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, members of the King's Musketeers. He is in love with Constance Bonancieux and, at her urging, he and his friends head for England to reclaim two diamond studs that the Queen has imprudently given to her lover, the Duke of Buckingham.
Richelieu, the chief minister of King Louis XIII, will resort to anything - even murder - to stop the Musketeers from interfering with his plan to ruin Queen Anne's reputation, and her influence over the King.
The Three Musketeers is one of the world's greatest adventure stories, and its heroes have become symbols of youth, daring, and friendship. Behind the flashing blades, Dumas explores the eternal conflict between good and evil.

"A true swashbuckling adventure!"
A rip roaring ride through 17th century France with four dashing heros and a motley crew of villians!
Well recorded,and excellently read by Micheal Page.
A classic adventure tale with plenty of plot twists-not always with the outcome you might expect!
"Disappointing after The Count of Monte Christo"
This book will disappoint anyone who's already read The Count of Monte Christo. Dumas doesn't make the grade with The Three Musketeers. The pace is slow and overly detailed and the plot is not as intriguing as the Count. I loved the Count and was sorry to finish it but I couldn't wait to get this one over and done with. It's nothing like the movie versions.
