Three MusketeersOne of the advantages of reorganizing my books yesterday is that I was reminded of many titles I’d love to recommend. Case in point: The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas, Even if you’ve never read the book you may think you know the story from the various film versions. You don’t. The book is so much more than the camp and silliness you see onscreen (and if you’ve only seen the execrable 1993 version with Keifer Sutherland, you REALLY have no idea what you’re missing). The book is a fantastic tale of adventure, intrigue, political machinations, romance, tragedy and triumph. The characters are more complex and the plot much more intricate than any 2-hour film can possibly show – do yourself a favor and give it a read.
