Reviews

its ok.

(3 stars)

filler. this whole volume feels like the author needed a paycheck so he kept writing despite not having anything worthwhile to write about. the only thing of interest is that Arimus becomes the Secret ruler of the world. 80% of the readers were good. the other 20% suffered from voices or sound quality so poor or quite i was literally hurting my ears having the volume up so high to try and distinguish what they were saying. oddly there was a reader that sounded like a 12 year old girl and did a horriable job. three musketeers was great. twenty years later was good, it has an evil cardinal like the original book and felt the same but different. the vicomte de bragelone asks the question "what if they went to england." and was also enjoyable but not nearly as much as the first two. this volume has 3 good chapters at most and Colbert feels like a much under used and easily outtricked "genius". i look forward to finishing the d'artagnan romances but I understand why only the three musketeers is famous.

verry poor reading of some

(2 stars)

I read the book after listening to the reading of this book being so bad. I don't understand why people volunteer when they read to fast or have a bad accent or totally mispronounce every name. not to be disrespectful but this is such an excellent book that it is a shame that it is done so poorly,. there were some verry good readers but because it changes so much it doesn't crank up the quality. sorry to be so harsh but I just want to be honest so that people who are interested don't waste there time and let this reading ruin their experience of Alexandre Dumas. If you read this review, I recommend that you just read the book. or at least read the chapters that are read poorly ( especially the first ones)

Good but not great

(4.5 stars)

The book was very good except there were points where it was very hard to follow the story because it was so off on tangents. The foursome is not evident. But the court drama is real. I can, however, begin to see how The man in the iron mask is going to link into the story. There was one incredible chapter where Aramis foretells what's going to happen without actually saying it. I can't wait to see how this finishes.

Not the best in the series

(2 stars)

The story itself degenerated into pointless rambling & the mispronounced words along with some really awful voice characterizations made this a chore to listen to. In fact I actually skipped several chapters because the character voices were just too painful to endure. Would recommend that readers use their natural voices rather than attempting character voices. Absolute relief when this was concluded.

horrible readers but great book

(1 stars)

Do yourselves a favor by not listening to this and read the book yourself. I believe this is the most horrendous readers they have had in any of these books. I had to jump over some of them just to continue with it.

Excellent readers!

(4 stars)

Keith, in this era of writing most novels were printed in news papers before ever being compiled into books. so more story and chapters more money. Welcome to Dumas works they all contain so much side stories its hard to keep everything straight.

Read it yourself Keith!

(5 stars)

Stamp out beggars who think they can be choosers. No, I'm not a LibriVox volunteer (yet). The five stars are for the book, another hit! thanks!

(4 stars)

The pronunciation of names could use more consistency, but overall this is definitely worth listening to if you have already gotten this far in the 3m series.
