Présentation de l'éditeur

When d’Artagnan goes to Paris to become a Musketeer, he embarks on a swashbuckling adventure with the legendary Porthos, Athos, and Aramis. If they wish to trump the nefarious Cardinal Richelieu, it’s got to be “all for one, one for all.”

Biographie de l'auteur

BIOGRAPHY Alexandre Dumas, born Dumas Davy de la Pailleterie, [24 July 1802 – 5 December 1870), also known as Alexandre Dumas, père, was a French writer, best known for his historical novels of high adventure. Translated into nearly 100 languages, these have made him one of the most widely read French authors in history. Many of his novels, including The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers, Twenty Years After, and The Vicomte de Bragelonne: Ten Years Later were originally published as serials. His novels have been adapted since the early twentieth century for nearly 200 films. Dumas' last novel, The Knight of Sainte-Hermine, unfinished at his death, was completed by a scholar and published in 2005, becoming a bestseller. It was published in English in 2008 as The Last Cavalier. Prolific in several genres, Dumas began his career by writing plays, which were successfully produced from the first. He also wrote numerous magazine articles and travel books; his published works totaled 100,000 pages. In the 1840s, Dumas founded the Théâtre Historique in Paris. His father, general Thomas-Alexandre Davy de la Pailleterie, was born in Saint-Domingue from a French nobleman and a black slave woman. His aristocratic rank helped young Alexandre acquire work with Louis-Philippe, Duke of Orléans. In the election of Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte in 1851, Dumas fell from favor, and left France for Belgium, where he stayed for several years. Upon leaving Belgium, Dumas moved to Russia for a few years, before going to Italy. In 1861 he founded and published the newspaper, L' Indipendente, which supported the Italian unification effort. In 1864 he returned to Paris. Married, Dumas also had numerous affairs, said to total 40. He was known to have at least four illegitimate or "natural" children, including a boy named Alexandre Dumas after him. This son became a successful novelist and playwright, and was known as Alexandre Dumas, fils (son), while the elder Dumas became conventionally known in French as Alexandre Dumas, père (father). Among his affairs, in 1866 Dumas had one with Adah Isaacs Menken, an American actress then at the height of her career and less than half his age. Twentieth-century scholars have found that Dumas fathered another three natural children.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Love, Adventure, Mystery... in France, which is even better... 8 janvier 2012
Par Ellie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I am a thirteen year old girl in Australia. I have had an isatiable craving for old, wonderful books since my dad conned me into reading Lord of the Rings when I was in third grade. I first became interested in this novel when I watched one of the movie adaptations, and I was hooked instantly. Brave, brave d`Artagnan with clever mind and loyal heart. Flashy, flaunty Porthos, with his never-ending self love. Handsome Aramis, with his ecclesiastical dreams. And, in my opinion, the most fascinating of all the characters; Athos, with his moody, brooding moments, his bad drinking and gambling habits, and his fascinatingly mysterious and dark past.
I could see it all when I was reading this. The man of Meung inspired a hatred in me. Mme Bonacieux`s capture gave me an unquenchable thirst to get to the bottom the mystery. Athos irritated me with his beating around the bush and refusal to answer questions.
Read this this book. Feel that suspense that I crave and I`m sure you crave also. This is an extraordinary story of love, adventure, mystery and peril...and it`s set in France, which makes it even better.
Best wises,

4.0 étoiles sur 5 adventures in the 17th century 15 juillet 2011
Par Mei - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat authentifié par Amazon
This book was written by French author Alexandre Dumas père in 1844. It's quite a long story: paperback versions have over 400 pages. Dumas has written two sequels to this book: 'Twenty years later' (1845) and 'The vicomte de Bragelonne' (1847).

The story is partly based on true facts. The figure D'Artagnan is based on Charles de Bast de Castelmore, count of Artagnan. He was a musketeer in the service of King Louis XIV and died during the siege of Maastricht (The Netherlands) in 1673.

Set in the early 17th century this book tells the story of 4 musketeers: Athos, Porthos, Aramis and D'Artagnan. Musketeers were guards to the King. The book narrates the adventures of these four young men. They get involved in: betrayal, lies, assassinations, true friendship, love, kidnap, fighting, and the conspiracy by Cardinal Richelieu to overthrow the King. In this story the brotherhood between men is portrayed as one of the most important values in life.

This adventure/historical novel is an entertaining story.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Classic Swashbuckling Tale of Adventure (and Wine) 16 septembre 2011
Par Justin Pace - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Three Musketeers is Dumas's much-adapted novel about a young man seeking to join the King's elite guard (the Musketeers) in 17th Century France. The young man, Aramis, quickly runs into three of the Musketeers, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, and hilarity ensues.

Three Musketeers features one of the greatest female villains I have ever encountered in fiction. Cardinal Richelieu is the more typical foil in adaptations, but Milady is the true danger to the four friends.

Three Musketeers has a surprising paucity of swashbuckling. It's a splash of intrigue, a pinch of swordplay, and fill with spoiled, upper class young men behaving badly. But it's fiendishly entertaining.

The free Kindle edition is an able translation, and I noticed few, if any, typos.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 All Foreign Phrases SCREAMING 5 octobre 2012
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat authentifié par Amazon
This Kindle edition puts all foreign phrases in all caps, rather than italicized. This is a grievous error in a book with a good deal of Latin and French. Luckily, Dumas' Count of Monte Cristo does not suffer the same typographic insult.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Most amazing 7 mars 2012
Par J. R. Neumiller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I read this free text version online several years ago, and it is FANTASTIC. The greatest action/adventure story perhaps ever written. (Leave comment if you know of a better.)

However, I will advise to "sip" this story, rather than swallow it whole. It is rich, delicious, and much like a thick, chocolate cake. Too much to read at once. In fact, Dumas serialized it originally in the local papers of his day, which is why it reads much like a movie; with its clear chapters and scene changes.

The story. Nothing short of amazing. The quality of character AND story AND style make this the reigning masterpiece that it is. The "Celebrated Four" are Athos, Porthos, Amaris, and D'Artagnan, and except for the very first chapter, it is really the "Four Musketeers" for the remainder of the entire story, (which ultimately spans 30 years, including all the subsequent additions.) How these four are introduced is novel, inventive, and perfectly establishes the character and tone for the entire book. Indeed!

The whole of the story itself is rather astonishing, as "M'Lady" is one of the most treacherous and thoroughly evil female villains in all of literature. She is without question THE driving force in this entire story, and her back-story, ruthlessness, guile, (and ultimate demise,) are beyond fiction norms. She is terrifying in her willingness to do anything to fulfill her destiny. (Madonna is the personality I kept comparing her to.)

The comedy! Droll, rolling, dry, and extraordinarily well executed. Dumas so thoroughly stages these scenes it is very much like you are watching a movie. He doesn't just tell these stories, he animates them before your very eyes. You find yourself marveling at the story-telling as much as the story itself.

The story is only marginally historically accurate, but that was all part of Dumas' legacy. In the followup book, Ten Years Later, he so majestically transports you into the field of battle with King Charles I and his battle against the Scots, (where he is betrayed and ultimately captured,) it is breath-taking story-telling at its finest. Like how an epicure delights in his finest dishes, so Dumas transports you into this scene. It is marvelous.

It took me almost 4 years to read the entire legacy. (I was determined to rest for many months before attempting the next book. Much like climbing a particularly challenging book.) What is the point of just cramming it down? While embroiled in the story, you cannot really put it down, but must continue to the next and the next. And you must finish it in reasonable time, lest you forget the content of the earlier chapters, (which are vital to appreciating the fullness of the complete story.)

You will run into historical personages that are exceptionally well defined and acted. Dumas weaves his story around these actual people, incorporating known historical events, (such as the assassination of Buckingham.) Dumas' genius is how he creates a largely fictitious, but eminently entertaining and thoroughly satisfying back-story to all these historical events.

You will become a BIG Dumas fan. Like Tom Clancy invented the "Techno Thriller," Alexander Dumas created the serialized, swashbuckling dramatic novel. And I've never read any finer.

Several scenes stand out: (from the entire 30 year story-line,)

D'Artagnan and Athos dueling each other at night on a country road, unaware they are fighting each other; each discovering a skill and power heretofore they had never found. Fitting it should be from the two greatest swordsmen in the history of France.

The subterfuge of M'Lady. Unbelievably resourceful and cruel. How she is able to accomplish her assassination of Buckingham through the agency of another is chilling to consider.

The all-pervading bonhomie of the four; their irrepressibly insouciant attitudes, undying devotion to royalty, and ever vigilance against the enemies of France, (which was sometimes difficult to discern.)

I believe you will like this story very, very much.
