Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Dumas's novels are shameless word-guzzlers, big and plush and almost sinfully comfortable. If Dumas was a hack, he was a hack with genius. His storytelling never seems the least bit mechanical: no assembly line, then or now, could ever turn out a narrative as joyful, as eccentric, as maddeningly human as The Three Musketeers.

Synopsis: This beautiful gift edition is published to celebrate the major BBC America adaptation, airing in 2014
Four men—the young Gascon D'Artagnan and the legendary musketeers Athos, Porthos, and Aramis—are ready to sacrifice everything, from their purses to their lives, for the common good. Propelled by the wicked machinations of Cardinal Richelieu and the magnetic Milady de Winter, the devoted friends adventure across seas and over rooftops, from masked balls to a medieval prison, to defend the honor of the Queen and the life of the King. Dashing, knockabout, romantic, violent, tongue-in-cheek, chilling, and tragic, The Three Musketeers is a wonderful piece of storytelling. Will Hobson's translation gives the dialogue the same charge that it has in the French, to make it as funny, vivacious, and immediate.
About the Author: Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) was a French playwright, historian, and prolific novelist, penning a string of successful books including The Three Musketeers, The Count of Monte Cristo, and Twenty Years After.
