The four musketeers age and are near the end of their careers. Huge disappointment after reading "The Black Count", the bio about Dumas' father, and "The Three Musketeers".
There is intrigue, and witty solutions, for the dangers our heroes get into and adventure. However, it dragged out way too long. And, when the man is put into the iron mask, that part of the story simply ends. I thought it would resolve later.
Many historical figures, Louis XIV, Jean-Baptiste Colbert (treasurer), Nicolas Fouquet (Superintendent of France), and several of the king's mistresses.

This story was not as thrilling as The Count of Monte Cristo but still a very good story.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the books on an individual basis and as a much longer story. The performances of all the readers has been consistently very good all of them bringing something special, I have especially enjoyed the accents, how they are maintained as the same over long books like these is a wonder, I suppose its the way you do it.
As for the stories they are all very very good, my adjective's would fail to give the stories a description they deserve. I have enjoy reading the written histories of the times the fictional books cover. Whichever is preferred, if one is willing to undergo such a task, excitement pervades. Personally I liked the scenario's of the novels more. The books definitely killed off the idea that musketeers are ,Robin Hood type, heroes as depicted on film. I Loved Them All. Thanks for the best read of my life. Colin XXX.

Truly great if slightly sad, but story concluded logically. Very pleased I decided to read sooks by Mr Dumas.
