    "Great narration of a fantastic adventure"

    Dumas sure knows how to write a captivating story. The narrator was excellent, I will definitely be listening to the other Dumas books he's performed!

    "Couldn't get through it. hated the narrator."
    What disappointed you about The Three Musketeers?

    I had loved the Count of Monte Christo and thought I'd try another of Dumas' classics. It was a mistake


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Bill Homewood?

    I'm afraid I didn't like his overly dramatic voice which is bouncy with enthusiasm in a way I found irritating.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Sorry but I couldn't get past the voice.

    There is a part towards the end where it gets REALLY slow and I know there was some interesting bits but for about an hour or maybe two it kinda drags when it could of been better. But I loved the story it was my first time through it.

    Story
    "Take the Long Road Home...the Best Audible"
    Would you listen to The Three Musketeers again? Why?

    Not only a re listen but the stimulus to a listen to all of Dumas with the COUNT having the slight edge. This is captivating, humorous, luminous, intriguing. This is 21st century writing in the guise of the 17thC court. These are heroes, villains and a wonderful stew of retribution in every shade. This is not a kid's book, this is not your GrandMa's Dumas, this is not stodge. This is joy, laugh out loud and yelling from the top row: 'Get the villain...watch out'.


    What other book might you compare The Three Musketeers to and why?

    The Count of Monte Cristo has a sharper edge and plot line with a single protagonist and a singular path to revenge BUT the Musketeers are droll, driven by honor and seduction and never failing in their devotion.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There is a wonderful, conflicted attempt of D'Artagnon to save the reputation of Anne of Austria; Queen of France and lover of the Duke of Buckingham. Beware of starting this section at midnight as your partner will see the light burn for the next hours


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughter, guffaws, belly cries and the reduction of any desire to ever 'get even'

    "Dumas never disappoints!"

    Fabulous characters. Wonderful adventure. Classic Dumas. Compelling story with a performance that manages to give voice to each character in his or her own accent/dialect thus making the story come to life. Absolutely recommend for males and females of all ages. The Three Muskateers hasn't lost its flavor through the course of time. It's appeal is universal. I thoroughly enjoyed this Audible book.

    "One of the true classics!"

    Will take the reader /listeners well beyond the pop culture/movie view of the 3 musketeers, their characters and the time they lived in through the authors view approx 200 years after this fictionalized account of royal intrigues were to have taken place (1600s). Neither the main characters, nor time period were what id thought they would be.

    Mixture of fact and fiction make for an interesting tale that kept my attention throughout.

    At around 25 hr listening time, it does take a while to finish - but definitely worth it.

    "Oh What An Adventure!!!"

    Bill Homewood's masterful narration is perfection itself, unfortunately, after you experience this book through Bill Homewood, you will never again enjoy the screen renditions of The Three Musketeers. It is amazing to me how Homewood uses his voice to dramatize the book, he completely captures Dumas' sense of humor

    Story
    "Less than I expected. Entertaining nonetheless "

    After many years being influenced by Hollywood and disney, I finally decided to read the original story. This is the adventure of the young d’artangna in its path to fortune and fame. The story is full of action, intrigue, larger than life characters, pompous dialogues and funny puns (kudos to Portos for most of them). I was surprised to realize that the biggest enemy in the story is not who I thought it was supposed to be. And that the means of evil are very subtle. The disappointment is regarding some dialogues that feel very artificial and some incongruencies between the description of some characters and what they actually do. Alexandre Dumas is a master on tragedies of life, and in this book, they are related in very light tone, with humor even. Be aware also that love here is a very strange concept that people can give of take at will. My special compliments go to the narrator that did an amazing job conveying emotion, danger, personality and fantastic french pronunciation that provided to the book the flavor that was taken from it for Being a translation in English.
