The d'Artagnan Romances, Vol 2: Twenty Years After (version 2)

Gelesen von John Van Stan

(4,846 Sterne; 39 Bewertungen)

Volume 2 of The d'Artagnan Romances begins twenty years after "The Three Musketeers." Since then, d'Artagnan's career has stagnated, he’s lost touch with his friends, and the high favor earned with Queen Anne has been forgotten. His misfortune mirrors that of France, now ruled by an ineffective miser, Cardinal Mazarin, who’s avarice (among other vices) fuels a rebellion. Moreover, England is mired in civil war! Can d’Artagnan do the seemingly impossible: reunite “The Inseparables,” save the Queen and young Louis XIV from an uprising, and aid the English monarchy, all while avoiding the evil Mordaunt, son of a personal enemy long-believed to be neutralized? Well, according to d'Artagnan, "Great people only thank you for doing the impossible; what’s possible, they say, they can effect themselves." (jvanstan) (24 hr 10 min)

JUST AS GOOD AS VOL. 1

(5 Sterne)

Second volumes are seldom equal to the first, but this one is. The first adventure was somewhat morecarefree, as befits the heroes as young men. This one, having added twenty years to their ages. is properly a bit deeper. Here we see the deep friendship which binds them, and we are immersed in their true love and respect for each other. Of course, the storyline is exciting, and the reader is as good as they come. ENJOY!!

excellent!!

(5 Sterne)

such a great story and reading! the three musketeers was a good book but had lots of stale chapters. this story was not stop trials and tribulations and was hard to turn off. the reader did a great job, read very swiftly and his many voices really have it an extra flair. can't wait to start part 3!!!

Incredible Narration, Gripping Story

(5 Sterne)

I didn’t think The Three Musketeers would get any better, but then it did. Plus, John van Stan is a phenomenal narrator who gives it his all for every character’s voice. Cannot recommend this audio book enough!

Thanks for taking this on!

(5 Sterne)

Exciting continuation of the three musketeers. Well read, this complex plot with many characters can still be followed without difficulty. Thanks, and looking forward to the next installment.

(4 Sterne)

The plot was perhaps superior to the first volume, however I enjoyed the first more as it was more witty. Worth a read nonetheless, very enjoyable and great reader.
