CLASSIC OF THE DAY:

The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas

  • Amazon: 4.5/5
  • Goodreads: 4/5

The Three Musketeers is Alexandre Dumas’s much-adapted novel about a young man seeking to join the King’s elite guard (the Musketeers) in 17th Century France. 

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.
