The Great Admissions Reading Challenge 2: Book 37: The Three Musketeers

The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas is a classic, certainly…but I wasn’t fond of the writing style and I wavered between sometimes liking a character here and there and other times finding them overly simplistic and a bit idiotic. My biggest hang up with the novel was the absence of the key characters from chapters 51-59, which were devoted entirely to a secondary character who didn’t really need nine consecutive chapters of exposition. I think the story could easily have been told far more succinctly and with better characterization and have been more enjoyable on the whole.
