This review is from: Twenty Years After (Kindle Edition)
It was even better than the Three Musketeers. Should such a thing be possible. Barely a moment to pause for breath and you learnt a lot more about Athos, Aramis and Porthos and of course D'Artagnan. Their characters stood out on the page. Dumas' descriptions, particularly of Athos, Comte de le Fere were almost poetic and I felt he must have known someone who had the qualities he described in such loving detail.
Exciting and perfect for anyone who loves France and England, history and Musketeers. None of it is tedious or dull as so many writers of the time could be. He certainly knew how to keep the reader's interest. A shame more writer's dirge on endlessly over nothing very much.
I am English but live in France and know very well all the places he refers to.
