Take the Long Road Home...the Best Audible
Not only a re listen but the stimulus to a listen to all of Dumas with the COUNT having the slight edge. This is captivating, humorous, luminous, intriguing. This is 21st century writing in the guise of the 17thC court. These are heroes, villains and a wonderful stew of retribution in every shade. This is not a kid's book, this is not your GrandMa's Dumas, this is not stodge. This is joy, laugh out loud and yelling from the top row: 'Get the villain...watch out'.
The Count of Monte Cristo has a sharper edge and plot line with a single protagonist and a singular path to revenge BUT the Musketeers are droll, driven by honor and seduction and never failing in their devotion.
There is a wonderful, conflicted attempt of D'Artagnon to save the reputation of Anne of Austria; Queen of France and lover of the Duke of Buckingham. Beware of starting this section at midnight as your partner will see the light burn for the next hours
Laughter, guffaws, belly cries and the reduction of any desire to ever 'get even'
