The Three Musketeers

Having recently read The Dumas Club (not to be confused with the more recent Dante Club), it did occur to me that I probably had most of my knowledge of The Three Musketeers from Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds (altogether now).
So I felt duty bound to read the original, and what a barnstorming read it is too. The episodic nature of its original publication is very clear, and it’s also very apparent that the over-arching story could be extended or shortened as was seen necessary. I suppose I ought to move on to The Count of Monte Cristo, but there’s a daunting read. And to think that Dumas (with help) wrote them both in the same year!
