quick blog to end the year. positives - loved the action of the book. good, exciting story. negatives - way too much time spent on the financial worries of the musketeers. horrible morals of most of the musketeers, with the lone exception being athos, who rocks. in review, i have to say i enjoyed the book even more than i did dumas' other great work, the count of monte cristo. i know most critics may disagree, but the musketeers just had so much more excitement. anyways, happy new years!
