The young and headstrong D'Artagnan, having proven his bravery by dueling with each, becomes a friend of Athos, Porthos, and Aramis, members of the King's Musketeers. He is in love with Constance Bonancieux and, at her urging, he and his friends head for England to reclaim two diamond studs that the Queen has imprudently given to her lover, the Duke of Buckingham. Richelieu, the chief minister of King Louis XIII, will resort to anything, even murder, to stop the Musketeers from interfering with his plan to ruin Queen Anne's reputation, and her influence over the King. The Three Musketeers is one of the world's greatest adventure stories, and its heroes have become symbols of youth, daring, and friendship.

"I am at the age of wild hopes, Monseigneur," said d'Artagnan.

Wow! the book is outstanding. I am sorry to say that the most recent movie with Logan lerman as dartagnan has completely butchered the book. this book has plenty of suspense and heroism to make it a true classic. You really just can't find good and true historical fiction these days anymore. Most of the stuff that's written nowadays is just about who falls in love with who and the nasty stuff that follows. I wish someone would actually write some good historical fiction that was NOT soaked in the "Overly romantic and lovey dovey romance " stuff.

The first modern swashbuckler and still the best! especially in the Richard Pevear translation.

Would've preferred to read it in French. Excellent ribald humor.
This is the first of four novels leading to "The Man In the Iron Mask".
