    • Parbleu! Morbleu! Corboeuf! Ma foi! Mordioux! Not to mention Cordieu! (I think they are variations of OMG).I usually prefer to know as little as possible about the book I am about to read, including avoid reading the synopsis, or if I have read the synopsis in order to decide whether to read the book I try to forget it (and do very well in the forgetting department, there is a character in this book called M. Fouquet, a name I would like to adopt for future social media shenanigans). Anyway, som [...]

    • It pains me to write this because I am, at heart, a print person. My paycheck depends on people wanting and buying printed materials. But this is one instance where the movie far outshines the book and I'm glad there was a screenwriter with a vision to see beyond this dismal book.I had just read Three Musketeers by Dumas when I read this book. Perhaps it was the pleasure I took in this early book that spoiled Man in the Iron Mask.Man in the Iron Mask starts out well. There is all the chivalry an [...]

    • Perhaps the most surprising thing about The Man in the Iron Mask, to me, was just how quickly the title subplot was dealt with. Then again, this was not originally called The Man in the Iron Mask. This is the last chunk in a larger book. I can see why it gets cut up like that. This part alone was over 400 pages. And the introduction gave a coherent enough synopsis of what came before that I could follow. Maybe I should have read it all, since I do like reading Dumas the elder.Back in the 90s, I [...]

    • Edited and annotated by David Coward, from an older translation. Well, the mammoth saga of the once-invincibles comes to a rather sad end. Porthos dies because his strength gives out. Aramis flees France in disgrace because his schemes come to ruin. And Athos dies because the one thing dearer to him to God, his son, leaves his company to go die in the Africa campaigns under the Duke of Beaufort. And d’Artagnan – well, d’Artagnan’s star does not decline under the sun king, but that’s on [...]

    • Magnificent, incredible, et cetera. I can't overstate how much I loved this story. I think Dumas is among the most entertaining of the classical writers. A huge cast of character and an epic story full of love, hate, friendship, betrayal, politics and actions. A favorite of mine.

    • I wish I could give this three stars, but this book truly was "just okay." The Three Musketeers and Twenty Years After must be read before this book, otherwise you will be very confused. I'm surprised that The Man in the Iron Mask is more famous than Twenty Years After (although neither are good stand-alone novels; they really require reading the previous novels first) because I found TYA to be much more humorous, more exciting, and more engaging all around. The only thing I liked more about TMi [...]

    • Everyone in the book lives behind an iron mask-built of honor first and foremost. Honor is first before riches or political place or family or work. I am torn. As much as I am in love with the Musketeers I cannot accept the code of honor they live by. Because they adhere so religiously to their honor code they are led into life threatening and adventurous episodes which entertain in reading but left me mystified by the underlying dismal outcomes in most cases. The characters who followed the fas [...]

    • FINALLY!!!! The D'Artagnan series ends with a great novel. The other entries since "The Three Musketeers" were unbalanced: too much political intrigue or too much romance (the latter applies especially to "Louise de Valliere") and -- worst of all -- the disappearance of the Musketeers for hundreds of pages. "The Man In The Iron Mask" strikes a perfect balance. It's all there: the intrigue, the romance, the swashbuckling. And the Musketeers are all back as main characters, not as side characters [...]

    • 4.5★ Having finally read the entire series, I found that I liked this final section even more. Some sections that I previously thought a bit dull or unrelated I now realize where the continuation or wrapping up of things that had happened previously. Several of the relationships, such as that between Raoul & Louise, are not at all clear if you read this as a stand-alone but make perfect sense having read the previous parts of "Vicomte de Bragelonne; or Ten Years Later". However the book is [...]

    • This is a superb novel -- and a frequently misunderstood one. The Man in the Iron Mask is only tangentially about the mysterious masked figure. I have read this book so long ago, and in the interval I have seen several filmed version of the story which turned it into a novel of derring-do, as if it were a young man's book, like The Three Musketeers. No, Alexandre Dumas had other fish to fry. He had done adventure. Here, he writes about a most solemn subject: The end of life.Athos, Porthos, Arami [...]

    • Other than the original "Three Musketeers" this is probably my favorite in the series. It only took me 8 or 9 years to read the whole series, finally! I liked it so much due to the main characters being our good ol' favorites of the four musketeers. Almost every page starring D'Artagnan was a good one! He continues to prove he is "the man" even in his old age. I also loved seeing Porthos in all his glory. One of the hardest parts for me was seeing Athos as such an old man totally dependent on hi [...]

    • I tried to read this book as a child, but got nowhere with it, probably because it concludes a narrative thread that runs through a series of earlier novels, with numerous references to and dependencies on those. The edition I read this time (Wordsworth) had enough notes and explanations to resolve any difficulties and, (hurrah!), I finished it.I have to say that, although the concept is superb, I didn't enjoy it as much as, say, The Three Musketeers; the pace was more laboured and the ending qu [...]

    • Since I seem to be giving up books at the moment. I probably will come back to this at some point, but the friend I've been reading it with agrees that the Frenchmen are not sassy enough for our readalong, and the whole thing lacks the charm of Musketeers, so we are swapping it out for the Scarlet Pimpernel as soon as either of us can get our hands on a copy. Decent book, but not fit for current purpose.

    • After all the adventures of D'Artagnan, Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, it's impossible not to fall in love with these characters. Their friendship, courage, loyalty, fidelity, and honor are the thread that conducts all the deeds, intrigues and adventures they go through. In The Man in the Iron Mask we set out on the last journey for the four musketeers.

    • Excellent story, but I was a bit disappointed that the Hollywood version is only loosely based on this book. The man in the iron mask turns out to be a side plot, and not the centerpiece of this final Musketeers novel.

    • i really loved this book, but was severely disappointed at the end,which while did its job felt very rushed and quite lacking compared to the thrilling and very well-written middle and climaxere were areas at the beginning and at the end that were really rather weak and even a little bit boring. aramis played a much larger part in this book, and it's interesting to see him portrayed as almost an antagonist in his ideals and attempt at dethroning louis xiv. i was really sad that my favourite char [...]

    • I didn't know how to review this book and just started writing randomly until some thoughts about the book illuminated me and I could writesome a proper rant about this book review.So, here it is.First, I never really figured out it was part of a series "The D'Artagnan Romances", so when I found this book free for being public domain I couldn't stop myself and got it immediately. I was really excited to start this book. I don't really remember the movie but I remember I liked it, that's why I th [...]

    • **spoilers**"Disappointed" would be too strong a word: I enjoyed this last installment of the D'Artagnan romances. But I found it less compelling than expected, less compelling than, for example, much-maligned book 3.2 (LdLV), which brilliantly ramps up the tension of court intrigue and then explodes. Why is 3.3 not so compelling? 1. Bragelonne's love-sickness to death stops being pitiable and merely becomes pathetic. He should have done like his father and taken to drink. 2. Fouquet is set up a [...]

    • I came to The Man in the Iron Mask with no more experience with Dumas than what The Count of Monte Cristo could give me - that is to say, with no experience at all with the three musketeers. Naturally, this left me rather confused in the early days of this last D'Artagnan romance: I knew the history of "the squirrel" (which constitutes a massive spoiler, but what are you to do when writing a historical novel?), but none of the intrigues that the characters would keep referring to. In fact this m [...]

    • Curiously unengaging. The "Man in the Iron Mask" is dispensed with in the first half of the book. I read the other D'Artagnan Romances following Three Musketeers so that I could approach this book fully informed. I expected a juggernaut. Well, Count of Monte Cristo delivered on its promise, but this book did not. The action largely trails off unsatisfactorily. Porthos is presented for comedy except for a moment of tragedy. The action is largely French against French. Louis XIV seems to be a comp [...]

    • As I advance on my quest to read all the books I have obtained over the years, I have come to this.My copy of this book most likely came from a thrift store or flea market and cost almost nothing. I may well have had this in my possession for over 20 years; who knows.From what I've read, this is the final book of Dumas's Three Musketeers saga. There's a reason why the Three Musketeers have had such staying power. Wow. Dumas was a quite a writer. The plots and intrigues, mostly advanced through c [...]

    • More intrigue than The Three Musketeers, which was a lot of fun. But there wasn't as much action/combat as Three Musketeers, which I missed. In the end, I was more interested in how the plot would turn out in the long term, but I had a harder time staying interested scene-to-scene, since some of them dragged on.

    • A great book. Dumas is a fantastic writer and I can’t believe it took me this long to get into his writing. The movies about the musketeers make these books seem like they must be corny. They are not. I can’t air to go and read the other musketeer books. (I started at the end without realizing it)

    • Editia pe care am citit-o eu este una mult mai veche, nu tocmai aceasta, dar in principiu contine aceeasi poveste. Scurta, clara si la obiect, un spin-off al seriei Cei trei muschetari foarte interesant, plin de intriga si aventura.

    • I stopped reading this book about halfway through. What a disappointment! I really enjoyed the other Dumas books I've read, but this one was not anything at all like the others.

    • I feel sort of lost after finishing the last of the d'Artagnan Romances. I'm still mourning for Porthos, more than any of the others. What will I read now? I suppose there's always the last refuge of any reader - start with the first book and read them all over again!
