Alexandre Dumas, Auguste Maquet. This is more Twenty Years After than Three Musketeers. As it's only the first part of a long novel it's hard to judge whether the varied events will be drawn into anything resembling a coherent plot. Отзывы - Написать отзыв. Пользовательский отзыв - lkernagh - LibraryThing. Okay, this was not the swashbuckling adventures of The Three Musketeers. Ten Years Later actually refers to the ten years in between Twenty Years After and The Vicomte de Bragelonne, so really, I think the titles of Books 3a and 3b should have been swapped. While the Vicomte still/ Ten First, a recap

The Vicomte de Bragelonne is the 3rd and largest continuation of the Musketeer saga, following The Three Musketeers and 20 Years After. Apparently, most publishers break the Vicomte de Bragelonne into 3 parts - the Vicomte, Louise de la Valliere and the Man in the Iron Mask. (The Oxford World's Classics version does and I too recommend it.) However, some break it into four parts. This volume, 10 Years Later, consists of the last 18 chapters of Oxford's Vicomte and the first 47 chapters of Oxford's Louise de la Valierre. You are unlikely to encounter the Musketeer saga in this form in a printed book but this is an e-book version and probably copyright free! If you are downloading the entire saga to your e-reader, you will need 10 Years Later to avoid a great gap between the e-version of the Vicomte and the e-version of Louise.
All of the Kindle versions of Dumas' work that I have read to date have been scanned well and appear error-free.

Book 4 out of 6 that starts with The Three Musketeers. This one really is tough to read. It focuses on the court of King Louis XIV shortly after he truly becomes king. I guess I'm not into court intrigue much. I keep falling sleep reading it. But, I'm determined to finish it as there are characters and story line items that I've already discovered would have helped me understand The Man in the Iron Mask, had I read the series in order. I just didn't realize there were 6 books to the series so now I'm reading them in the correct order.

It’s still good, still well written, but it is the slowest of his stories. Not as much happens in this one but it does set up the next part of the story nicely.

I like to absorb myself in a story and enjoy the ride. Dumas has written the d'Artagnan series which was serialised over six years in the 19th Century. I started with The Three Musketeers and will keep going all the way through The Man In The Iron Mask (which I have read before, but hadn't until recently known is the conclusion). Some of the middle books dwell on female characters and romance, and show the way well-placed women were able to play politics within the framework of that society. So it is not all swash-buckling, and the dialogue is witty. I don't know any good reason that it hasn't been produced for TV along the lines of Game of Thrones. Dumas was very clever and prolific. I will probably keep reading his works for a bit.

Book itself is great but do not buy from these "CreateSpace" publishers. The text is not properly formatted and the book is low-quality and extremely awkward to read.

And so the saga of the four musketeers continues. Fascinating description of the conversation between the queen mother and her son Philip about his jealousy. Also interesting description of the rates for the prisoners in the Bastille. And how about all the secrets that the royal oak holds. Excellent read.

Excellent period piece. Not for the general reader of today-too fond of meandering elaboration. A good study for one who is uninterested in the post baroque pre roccoco style of manners and humor. I think Dumas was attempting to channel Molierre.
In "Ten Years Later" by Alexandre Dumas (and ghost writer), Dumas (1802-1870) needs fewer than 100 pages of this 341-page novel to dispel the old saw that gossip is the domain of women. This book is nowhere (as it generally is anyway) without the mindless gossip and petty pursuits of the over-sexed and under-brained court of Louis XIV of France. Not once did any notion of intellectual power display itself on these pages.

I take the title of this review from the book, The Sword of Ridicule, from page 300, the written thoughts of King Louis XIV.

It's often funny, in a put-down kind of way, but really not very entertaining. It is no wonder that this volume never achieved the status of "The Three Musketeers" or "The Count of Monte Cristo." Dumas, it seems, serialized this endless tale, written in the 1840s, primarily to make himself rich. What other purpose could there be?

"Necessity is the mother of invention," is said by Aramis to Fouquet on page 111, when discussing Fouquet's dire financial condition. Is this the creation of the phrase?

It's actually the teen-age female characters who, while totally idiotic, provide intrigue and interest in this story. Even the flamboyant brother of Louis gives little color to the tale. And, only the last 75 pages or so are even remotely interesting.
Chief of the Musketeers Artagnan is barely present in this so-called sequel to the famous "Musketeer" book. Like all sequels of every medium, this one fails spectacularly.

What is humorous is Dumas' sweeping and inaccurate generalizations about women (and men) - ludicrous and highfalutin. But, back in the day, pretension was the by-word, and Dumas captures this unscientific arrogance with a vengeful pen.

Sorry to say, it's barely a 3 but given nonetheless due to the audacious and often well-deserved reputation of Dumas.
