Reviews - What do customers think about Les Trois Mousquetaires?

The text format of this book is terrible!  Feb 14, 2008
Dumas rates five stars; the story rates five stars, but the formatting makes reading it on the Kindle a nightmare! The lines of text are fixed-length, and they are longer than the width of the Kindle page, even at the smallest character-set size. Thus each line displays as one full line, followed by a short overflow (or word-wrap) line. Ugh! I asked for, and received, my money back, and I deleted the item from my Kindle. I am VERY disappointed, as I wanted to read it in the original French, but I couldn't cope with the jerkiness that the ridiculous text formatting imposes on the reading process. (OK, I see others didn't seem to notice . . . so, I guess I'm picky. But there you are: my opinion, for what it's worth.)
This is the "texte integral"  May 7, 2006
It seems that two of the three other people who have written reviews rated the wrong edition. As the other reviewer pointed out, this is the "texte integral." This is not an edition to be read by somebody who is beginning to learn French. I consider myself very fluent in French and still have difficulties with some parts of the text.

For a more advanced reader such as myself, this book is an excellent read. Dumas is an excellent author and I have enjoyed every story of his that I have ever read. The plot is well developed and engages the reader through to the end of the novel.
A Great Read  Sep 20, 2005
I read this book with my class in high school, and I enjoyed it then and still do now. I found it an easy read, and it has helped me to read the 'texte integral' version as well, which contains the full story in regular French, not in 'simple French' as it is in this version.
The only reason I dislike this version is that the vocabulary in the margins is not usually the more difficult vocabulary of the passage, but it is something bearable.
For someone learning French or wanting to brush up on their skills, Les Trois Mousquetaires is excellent, and it also provides the reader with one of Alexandre Dumas' fascinating tales.
Make sure you review the right edition!  Sep 15, 2005
This edition of the book, ISBN 2266087594, is not an adaptation, has no vocabulary, no writing excercises, and no English anywhere. The review below is of a different edition.

This book does have footnotes that explain historical references, maps showing the travels of D'Artagnan, and sections talking about historical context and structure of the text. To be honest, I did not find all this extra information useful, but it was there if I wanted to look at it. This edition is "texte integral", meaning that it includes the entire text, even a preface and appendix written by Dumas that are not part of the main story.

Dumas is an inventive and entertaining story teller, and Les Trois Mousquetaires is on of his better books. Recommended.
5 stars for Dumas, 1 for the adaptation, average of 3 stars  Jul 7, 1999
This is not Les Trois Mousquetaires of Alexandre Dumas; it is "adapted in simple French by R. de Roussy de Sales." It includes marginal notes, usually not on the most challenging vocabulary in the paragraph, and a set of writing exercises in English in the back.

However, this is a good adaptation, if you are looking for something to challenge rusty French skills.

Dumas' characters and action are exciting and compellingly drawn, and the boundary between history and fiction is blurred enough to make Dumas' version the more persuasive.

This is still a terrific story.
