The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I had left this aside for a while because I didn't know what to write, but now I have an idea...
So..."The Three Musketeers" is about these four men (who met in the most hilarious situations) and their adventures. I wouldn't say there is a single plot in the book, since it addresses many issues.
Meet the Musketeers:
1) D'Artagnan: We all know he is the one out of the place here, he is not a Musketeer, just a wanna-be. The youngest of them all. Reckless and charming.
2) Athos: He is the eldest. Seems kind of immune to love
3) Pothos: He is a little proud ("a little" I say, haha) and vain.
4) Aramis: Wants to become a priest. He is cautious talks very little and is very organized.
Now, meet the villains:
1) Cardenal Richelieu: I like him, although I don't think he is the real "bad guy", I know he is the one who plans everything but, still, I think the greatest villain is Milady.
2) Milady: Oh, God! I love her! She is so...how to describe her...? Ah, I know, badass? Perhaps that's not the best word to describe her, but she is a perfect femme-fatale, seductive
3) Rochefort: The man with the scar. The one who stole D'Artagnan's letter of recommendation. Another of Richelieu's minions.
There were some funny parts
Also, if you think the Musketeers were a group of perfect gentlemen, then you're wrong: They like drinking, betting and they enjoy putting up a fight, even (or specially, I should say) with the Cardinal's guards.
Read it, you will certainly enjoy it. It's not a light read but it's good enough to haunt you.
All for one, and one for all!
