    The book was...okay, on average. I was done with the Musketeers and d'Artagnan before the book was over, but one character saved the book. She was brilliant, resourceful, manipulative, scheming, opportunistic and unrepentantly so. She's an antagonist, yes, but she's a fascinating one. I loved the chapters that we got from her point of view. I would have cheerfully read an entire novel about Milady de Winter, even an entire trilogy. That would have been AMAZING. But the Musketeers and d'Artagnan.. The book was...okay, on average. I was done with the Musketeers and d'Artagnan before the book was over, but one character saved the book. She was brilliant, resourceful, manipulative, scheming, opportunistic and unrepentantly so. She's an antagonist, yes, but she's a fascinating one. I loved the chapters that we got from her point of view. I would have cheerfully read an entire novel about Milady de Winter, even an entire trilogy. That would have been AMAZING. But the Musketeers and d'Artagnan...oy. There were bits with the four of them that were great. I liked the swashbuckling and the improbable friendships between four men who were so drastically different. I was totally there for that. But then the narrative started showing the Musketeers and d'Artagnan as irresponsible idiots. They have no money, but they gamble huge amounts anyway because they're "gentlemen." Guys, when you have NO MONEY FOR RENT OR FOOD you need to stop betting everything on a toss of the dice. And what's worse is that the narrative treats this as stylish insouciance. It's not just gambling, either. Aramis, who is supposed to be the most devout and who supposedly wants to be a priest, only seriously considers this when he's depressed; he has numerous mistresses and loves them passionately. Porthos is (view spoiler)[leeching off of the older and not particularly attractive wife of a rich man; it's very clear that he's romancing her for the money that she can winkle out of her husband's accounts (hide spoiler)] , and I think she knows it, but she's so desperate for affection that she allows herself to be used. The Porthos scenes are treated as comic relief, by the way. And Athos? Athos is an alcoholic and a misogynist. This is not my interpretation. He states openly in the text that he hates and distrusts all women, and repeatedly advises d'Artagnan to forget about the two women he falls in love with--more on that to come--because they're women and fickle and a man can't trust them. Why? Because (view spoiler)[he's an aristocrat who married an ex-con (hide spoiler)] . I should mention that he tells the others not to judge all men by the actions of one man. It would have been nice if women could have gotten the same consideration. By the time that I'd read 75% of the book, I was ready to delete it from my Kindle. The Musketeers were not the loyal, valiant heroes and friends that a thousand movies had convinced me that they were. Aramis came across as bipolar and not knowing what he wanted out of life, Porthos was (view spoiler)[emotionally manipulating a woman for gain (and was proud of it!) (hide spoiler)] , and Athos was doing everything but wear a fedora. And d'Artagnan--oh, Lord. D'Artagnan's character arc fell apart in the middle. He is presented as being hopelessly in love with Constance Bonacieux until she gets kidnapped. Then he's agitated for a bit and...forgets about her, because she's not here and Milady de Winter is. The narrative doesn't seem to consider his falling for Milady relevant, since it outright calls Constance his true love later in the book. I stopped believing that around the time he fell in all-consuming love with Milady; d'Artagnan spends a lot of time going on various espionage missions to foil the Cardinal and his minions, but he doesn't do much to find out where Constance is, despite the fact that she's imprisoned for three-quarters of the book. Aramis's girlfriend, the royal seamstress Marie, does more. I know that d'Artagnan is only eighteen, but I at least expected him to (view spoiler)[worry about a woman who had been imprisoned by political enemies and/or was in hiding from them. That doesn't happen until the narrative shoves a reminder of Constance's plight under his nose. Up until then--for six months--he'd effectively put Constance out of his mind, despite the fact that the cardinal's plans and machinations, which d'Artagnan and his friends kept blundering into, should have reminded him of her long before the actual denouement. (Also, I didn't appreciate Constance being effectively fridged to give d'Artagnan a reason to continue opposing Richelieu and Milady (hide spoiler)] .) I was done with these four. Just DONE. But then I got to Milady's chapters, and my God, what a difference! The story came to life when we got to see things from Milady's perspective. She was an awful person, but my God, she was compelling! I actually got to understand why she did things the way that she did! Even when she did things that I disagreed with--and in a couple of places, I yelled at her, begging her NOT to do something--I still wanted to keep reading about her. This was a thousand times better than the Musketeer show. The worst thing that the Musketeers did, to my way of thinking, was perform premeditated murder. One of these, which involved one of them taking someone into the woods for a private hanging, could easily map to a lynching in modern minds. The other involves a gang of ten against one person, a kangaroo court, and a beheading. The narrative clearly wants us to see both actions as justice, too. And no one is punished for either action--not in this book, at any rate. I was very uncomfortable with this. I like actions to have consequences--good ones and bad ones. I think that I was supposed to like the Musketeers and d'Artagnan more than I did. For my part, I was disappointed. I always enjoyed the movies involving them, and I hoped that I would enjoy the book as well. It says something when the only reason you can find for liking the book is the complexity and skill with which the antagonist is written.

    I am assuming that this was an abridged version as it was a little over two hours. It was a little difficult for me to follow. Maybe it's one of those I really needed to pay attention to instead of trying to do something else while I listened. If you love The Three Musketeers tell me and I'll try for the full version! I really enjoyed parts of it!
