    • The sprawling three-thousand-page saga of the Four Musketeers is the meerschaum pipe of adventure literature. Although it first attracts attention by its intricately carved detail, it is even more remarkable for the way it ages, for it reveals a rich range of colors as it progresses, each darker and more interesting than the one before.Twenty Years After created a world more cynical, and heroes less intrepid and less unified, than that youthful romp The Three Musketeers, and now, Ten Years Later [...]


    • I can 't believe how much I've been enjoying my rash of Dumas novels lately. I've read the first three D'Artagnan novels in quick succession and cannot recommend them highly enough. This is Volume One of the last book (sometimes referred to as Ten Years Later) to be followed by Louise de Valliere and The Man in the Iron Mask. Of course the novel wasn't originally intended to be split in this way, so the ending tails away a little as we leave the intrigues of Athos and D'Artagnan to put Charles I [...]


    • Great addition to "Three Musketeers Series." Can't wait to get on to the next, but I must. Thought it was amusing that the title's namesake didn't really appear much in the book until the end. And it was actually quite a cliffhanger at the end there. I like the characters even more as they age. They're all in their late 50's now. I like their mature selves and the more mature reflections they make. I love this description of D'Artagnan at this period of his life: "He had all the passions, all th [...]


    • 3½ stars. I was a bit surprised to have the book end as I still had several CDs of the audiobook to go! This discrepancy is annoying but understandable as both the book and the audiobook are just the first part of the book Dumas originally wrote as the final novel of the d'Artagnan trilogy. This last book was so enormous that it is almost always divided into 3, 4, or even 5 separate volumes. I am reading the Project Gutenberg Kindle editions which are using the 4 volume division (although there [...]


    • I finished it! It took me longer to complete this book than it did War and Peace! I should reconsider my obsessive compulsion toward unabridged literature and my inability to accept a blemish on my record of consecutive completed reads. This book just dragged on and on and on and on andAs the third installment of the d'Artagnan Romances, this book serves as a transition from the notorious three musketeers and their Gascon friend to the lives of other French and English characters - youth usurpin [...]


    • Se da una parte il mio cuore vorrebbe dare le cinque stelline piene a questo romanzo (perché un'opera che è riuscita a far piangere una persona che non si commuove facilmente e non ha mai - e sottolineo, mai - pianto per un libro merita il massimo a prescindere), dall'altra la mia coscienza e l'oggettività mi impongono altre scelte.Dumas, in fondo, è uno scrittore di romanzi d'appendice, che sa benissimo che il guadagno viene da quante righe scrive e da quanti capitoli la sua mente riesce a [...]


    • Although this book is titled Vicomte de Bragelonne, there is very little about Raoul. There is a chapter of two in the beginning, a couple in the middle and a few at the end, all the plot in between has nothing to do with him. In fact, with the exception of D'artagnan, there isn't much about any of the musketeers. Athos gets the most attention. Porthos and Aramis don't get any significant attention until about 2/3rds of the way through the book. In spite of this, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I [...]


    • Okay, at this point, I think I need to be clear about what series I am reading and commenting on. The D'Artagnan Romances were all originally published as serials, and they were later published in book form as a trilogy: Book 1: The Three MusketeersBook 2: Twenty Years AfterBook 3: Ten Years LaterApparently, Ten Years Later is such a tome that it has been further split into 3, 4, or 5 volumes, depending on the publisher. I am reading a set of FREE ebooks available on , and this series consists o [...]


    • The first part of Dumas' massive Ten Years Later, this returns to the story of our four musketeer friends, now joined by Raoul, the son of Athos. Originally serialised over about 2.5 years, this volume falls into natural sections and there are times where we can almost hear the equivalent of a narrative voice-over saying 'previously in The Three Musketeers' before reminding us, at some length, of what's gone before.The first half belongs to d'Artagnan and Athos as, picking up on their failure to [...]


    • I confess to strong bias: Dumas is my favorite author. Even when his prose is at its purplest, it makes my heart beat a little faster. Book 1 in The Vicomte de Bragelonne (a single LONG work broken into three books, of which this is the first, that culminates in and ends the Musketeer Saga with The Man in the Iron Mask) was excellent. D'Artagnan, who has always seemed flamboyantly over-cocky, is more grown-up now, and the power-mad Cardinal Richelieu has been replaced with the power-mad Mazarin [...]


    • Terzo ed ultimo romanzo del Ciclo dei moschettieri, anche questo inizialmente pubblicato a puntate su un quotidiano, a partire dal 1847.Se potessi sintetizzare con una parola ciascuno dei tre libri direi:Avventura il primo, Amicizia il secondo, Amore il terzo, ma aggiungo subito che, dopo il livello altissimo dei primi due, questo è stato per me quasi una totale delusione!Casti amori e sdolcinate smancerie di Corte, noiose ed improbabili ai miei occhi, occupano gran parte della storia, abbandon [...]


    • Tomo mastodontico, questo libro chiude le vicende dei quattro personaggi creati da Dumas e noti collettivamente come "I moschettieri".Un libro che, oltre a seguire le vicende dei quattro e del loro figlioccio Raul, offre come i precedenti uno spaccato interessantissimo delle vicende storiche dell'epoca. In questo caso seguiremo il giovane re Luigi XIV da quando sale al potere, alla morte del cardinale Mazzarino già conosciuto dai lettori nel secondo volume della trilogia, fino a quando, finalme [...]


    • This volume is something of a mixed bag. In this first part of the four volume translation of the final book of Dumas' musketeer saga, we are not only introduced to a host of new characters, but also encounter a lot of different themes and plot-threads, some of which intersted me more than others (which accounts for the less than stellar, but still satisfied rating). Predictably I was the most fond of d'Artagnan and Athos' trip to England, as the respective chapters read very much like they coul [...]


    • Amo tutto Dumas, padre e figlio. Il Visconte ha meno fuoco dei 3 moschettieri, ma Alexandre sapeva scrivere!


    • Il lungo addio Terzo ed ultimo romanzo delle avventure incominciate coi tre moschettieri, proseguite vent'anni dopo e terminate dopo altri quindici anni. Ovviamente, ragazzi diventati uomini ben oltre la mezz'et�, e in tempi metallici dove un anno ne pesava per tre odierni, dovranno usare sempre meno la spada per affilare invece lingua e sinapsi. Poco pubblicizzato, vende forse un sesto del primo e met� del secondo, chiaro caso o di saga che va assai perdendosi in idee scarse, deboli e ricic [...]


    • Meraviglioso, questo libro!!! Già dalle prime pagine Dumas mi ha affascinato, è stato un piacere ritrovare la sua ironia! Caspita, quanto m’era mancato, e quanto mi mancherà ancora di più adesso! Da chi l’aveva già letto, ho sempre sentito parlare bene di questo romanzo, qualcuno anzi lo considera il migliore della trilogia. In effetti devo dire che tutte le lodi sono ampiamente confermate, e sinceramente non me l’aspettavo! Non mi aspettavo che un libro così lungo, e che viene dopo [...]


    • Edited (from "the classic translation") and richly annotated by David Coward. This Oxford World's Classics edition contains an Introduction, a Chronology of Dumas' life, a List of Historical Characters and the aforementioned annotation.Since these 658 pages make up only one third of the entire continuing saga, it's hard to rate this book: it breaks off abruptly, with Athos about to go take revenge on a slanderer. A lot happens in this segment, most notably the restoration of Charles II to the En [...]


    • I thought The Three Musketeers was one of the most thrilling books I've ever read. Twenty Years After was a pretty good, yet still exciting, sequel. But the flame of the series just went out in The Vicomte de Bragelonne.Three biggest mistakes with the third novel are as follows:One, D'Artagnan is no longer the focus of the story. His three comrades are hardly mentioned and are merely an afterthought. I thought they were the point of the whole series.Two, there is no action throughout the book. I [...]


    • [J. Walker McSpadden translation, Charles Scribner's Sons 1926]This is volume 1 of the third book of the D'Artagnan Romances. I now understand why the structure of this last book is published in different forms. Apparently, each of the three volumes is split into two parts. Essentially, this first volume, entitled "The Vicomte de Bragelonne", is made of two separate novels that involve the same characters -- though the Four Musketeers are never together at the same time.I enjoyed this book much [...]

    • "I moschettieri! I moschettieri!", ripetevano. E, in tutti quei giovani prodi, l'idea di dover lottare contro due delle più vecchie glorie dell'esercito faceva correre un brivido, metà d'entusiasmo, metà di terrore. È che, infatti, quei quattro uomini, d'Artagnan, Athos, Porthos e Aramis, erano venerati da chiunque portasse la spada, come nell'antichità erano venerati i nomi d'Ercole, di Teseo, di Castore e di Polluce.


    • This very well may have been a fantastic story, but I am rating my experience of reading it, and this edition in the three musketeers saga was way too long-winded and slow-developing to keep my interest, even though I read the whole book. It has been a long while since I've read it, to be fair, but my memories of reading it involve pain. If you are more patient than I was, then perhaps it will turn out to be a fun story for you.


    • I really dragged myself through this one. It was a good exercise for improving my French but I have to say I was disappointed. Boring. Lacking the feel of excitement he was able to instill in me from the original "Three Musketeers". I don't know if I'll read the sequel, at least not for a very long time. I'll probably skip it and read something else by him, or just go on to another French author. Perhaps I'm just done with Dumas.


    • Amuzant cum, în ciuda faptului că această parte se numește „Vicontele de Bragelonne”, Raoul apare prea puțin. Încă aștept clipa când el și Louise se vor întâlni și povestea lor de dragoste va începe.„Aceste două nume, pe care le rostea cu atâta plăcere, îi sfâșiau inima în timp ce-i mângâiau buzele.”



    • THE THREE MUSKETEERS ROMANCES—-FROM THE WORLD LITERATURE FORUM RECOMMENDED CLASSICS AND MASTERPIECES SERIES VIA —-ROBERT SHEPPARD, EDITOR-IN-CHIEFAlexandre Dumas is one of the great mythmakers of modern Western Literature. The Three Musketeers saga is of course a thrilling tale of adventure known to almost everyone through film if not by firsthand reading, and its over one-hundred film adaptations testify to its grip on the popular imagination. Having read the entire Musketeer saga of D'Arta [...]


    • I finally finished this! Felt like it took me forever. That wasn't helped by the fact that it turns out I had the text of the next book in the series when I first started. It was mislabeled. So I wasted several days before I figured that out, then had other things that cropped up to be read first, then holidays, and lately being to nasty to walk outside (and read). Thank goodness for nice weather! At any rate, more fun with D'Artagnan and friends. I'm partial to Dumas' dialogue. It has a rhythm [...]


    • It's strange to me that a book titled "The Vicomte de Bragelonne" should feature so little of the titular character. The third installment of the d'Artagnan Romances follows a similar pattern as the first two, in that d'Artagnan is the hero whose adventures we follow, and he spends much of his time in England - a whole country away from Raoul.And while d'Artagnan is joined by Athos in his journeys, Aramis and Porthos do not figure into the plot until the story is over halfway through. Neverthele [...]


    • It is a good, but in my opinion, not perfect book. Dumas isn't very consistent in his writing and some books I find more interesting than others. The reason for this is because his style and tone of drafting changes quite a lot from book to book. The action is however interesting and the characters he portrays have depth. Another thing I find positive is that he puts an emphasis on justice and goodness, things that nowadays have strangely become more arcane. I've learned quite a lot in his portr [...]


    • I give this one four stars because in my opinion the story ended abruptly. Maybe it being entitled #3.1 may have been a clue. Still I can't fault the writing nor the story really. I suppose I'm just being a bit picky as I don't particularly like incomplete stories. I have now begun #3.2
