Originally published in 1845 as a sequel to The Three Musketeers, Twenty Years After is a supreme creation of suspense and heroic adventure.Two decades have passed since the three musketeers triumphed over Cardinal Richelieu and Milady. Time has weakened their resolve and dispersed their loyalties. But treasons and stratagems still cry out for justice: civil war endangers the throne of France, while in England, Cromwell threatens to send Charles I to the scaffold. Dumas brings his immortal quartet out of retirement to cross swords with time, the malevolence of men, and the forces of history. But their greatest test is a titanic struggle with the son of Milady, who wears the face of Evil.More

Dumas YES, Narrator NO
I recently discovered Dumas' D'Artangion series, starting with the first one that is narrated by Simon Vance. I then skipped "Twenty Years After" and listened to "The Man in the Iron Mask", also narrated by Simon Vance. I decided to go back and listen to the one's I'd missed, starting with "Twenty Years After", narrated by Frederick Davidson. Well, in a work "Yuck". Mr. Davidson is a sad excuse for a narrator/reader/story teller. I gave it a chance, listening for two hours. Alas, I could not take Mr. Davidson any more and decided to check the book out of the library, as Simon Vance does not narrate a version of this book. I have placed Mr. Frederick Davidson on my do not listen to list forever.
Terrible, will never listen to a book narrated by Mr. Davidson again, NEVER.
Enjoyed the story, but please get John Lee
Unfortunately, there is no choice in narrators for this book. I'm a big fan of John Lee's narations...this is not to that standard. The main characters have awfully grating interpretations to their voice, so I'm glad I'm only listening to this in the car and not on headphones. After a five hour drive today I place the rendition of D'Artagnan to an interaction of the voice of the father in the 80s show, ALF...a bit whiny, grating and annoying. Too bad the producer didn't make him change the voice. D'Artagnan doesn't even sound his age. The story is good, just don't try listening to this for several hours at a time. I'm getting through this, though, so I can move onto the next books, which are narrated by John Lee.
