I can t believe how much I ve been enjoying my rash of Dumas novels lately I ve read the first three D Artagnan novels in uick succession and cannot recommend them highly enough This is Volume One of the last book sometimes referred to as Ten Years Later to be followed by Louise de Valliere and The Man in the Iron Mask Of course the novel wasn t originally intended to be split in this way so the ending tails away a little as we leave the intrigues of Athos and D Artagnan to put Charles II back on Britain s throne behind and begin the court shenanigans that will comprise volume 2 so I can understand why some will be bemused by this book but of course unlike The Three Musketeers and Twenty Years After this isn t ever supposed to be a complete work like reading part one of War and Peace and complaining that there wasn t a proper ending The heroes are all much world weary now D Artagnan is bitter Porthos is over settled Aramis is neck deep in intrigue and Athos is intent on setting his son out into the world properly Their enemies are small and petty now compared to Milady and Richelieu of the first book but that s not the fault of our heroes and of course taking out your sword to solve a problem can now cause many problems than it solves Okay can t wait to start Louise de Valliere now

summary Vicomte de Bragelonne ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ovel by Alexandre Dumas père It is the third and last of the d'Artagnan Romances following Th. The first part of Dumas massive Ten Years Later this returns to the story of our four musketeer friends now joined by Raoul the son of Athos Originally serialised over about 25 years this volume falls into natural sections and there are times where we can almost hear the euivalent of a narrative voice over saying previously in The Three Musketeers before reminding us at some length of what s gone beforeThe first half belongs to d Artagnan and Athos as picking up on their failure to save Charles I from execution they now work to restore Charles II The politics of the French and English courts come to the fore in the middle section especially the battle for supremacy between Louis XIV s ministers after the death of Mazarin leaves a power vacuum And the final section brings both courts together as Henriette is married to Louis brother Philippe and the younger Duke of Buckingham follows almost his father s footsteps in getting embroiled in amorous French intrigues It s only in the last third too that we re meet Aramis and Porthos and their mysterious activities on Belle Isle a plot strand that comes to greater and significant prominence later Dumas as ever is brilliantly vivid and energetic as he romps through his adventures whether the big set pieces of executions and riots or the intimate verbal duels and confrontations that abound There s less amorous romance now that our musketeers are older in years and Raoul s love for Louise de la Valliere is sweet rather than passionateD Artagnan s character is perhaps the most interesting here cynical yet loyal disillusioned yet hopeful and the scenes between him and Raoul and him and Athos recall the earlier books emphasis on male friendshipThis is perfect reading for anyone who loved the BBC series Versailles set as it is at the start of Louis s adult reign The notes to this Oxford edition are excellent on the politics and personages of C17th France though do beware of some slight spoilers if you re not familiar with the story
