I read this immediately after "Les trois mousquetaires", so was struck by the evolution of the four principal characters, particularly Athos who seems to have lost some his drive and initiative, and D'Artagnan who has found his. As ever, the historical setting and characters add an interesting backdrop (although apparently not historically accurate, I wouldn't know), and unlikely adventures and ingenious twists abound. There is an interesting split of the four friends into two, sometimes competing, factions, which I found odd at first, but which adds interest to the various plots and sub-plots. All in all a good read, and I will shortly embark on the final part of the trilogy, "Le Vicomte de Bragellone".

Did you realise D'Artagnan was actually based on historical figure? Me neither - surprisingly I got that from science fiction writer Neal Stephenson's 'Quicksilver" so I checked it out. M Treville likewise. The names of Porthos, Athos & Aramis are taken from 3 similarly named characters - all nephews of M Treville - but their careers are completely different. Treville, Richelieu & Louis XIII are all now dead, while Louis XIV is still a minor. Mazarin is sharing Anne of Austria's bed. D'Artagnan is still a musketeer, Athos retired to his estate, Aramis in the church, Porthos now a rich widower. The story is set at the time of "La Fronde" and also deals with the death of Charles I

(Accents fine in my copy)

This sequel of the three musketeers is as much of a classic and is as enjoyable to read. These are books that any person who enjoys historic novels or any child who likes adventures should have read.
