Book 1 in The Vicomte de Bragelonne (a single LONG work broken into three books, of which this is the first, that culminates in and ends the Musketeer Saga with The Man in the Iron Mask) was excellent. I'm actually not sure what the French name is for this 3000 page monster. It gets divided up into 3, 4 or sometimes 5 volumes.

Alexandre Dumas (1802 - 1870) was a French writer. After enjoying the Vicomte de Bragelonne as much as its two prequels, towards the end of the book, I swore that this was it. However, I did not reckon with Alexandre Dumas. Many of his historical novels of high adventure were originally published as serials, including The Count of Monte Cristo, The Three Musketeers, Twenty Years After and The Vicomte de Bragelonne: Ten Years Later. His novels have been adapted since the early twentieth century for nearly 200 films.

Written by Alexandre Dumas, the book was a bestseller during the time of its publication and it remains so even today. It follows the timeless theme of friendship and bravery. The main protagonist of the story is D’Artagnan who travels to Paris to realize his dreams of becoming one of the musketeers for the king. D'Artagnan Romances The Vicomte of Bragelonne: Ten Years Later (Le Vicomte de Bragelonne ou Dix ans plus tard) is a novel by Alexandre Dumas, père.

The serial chronicles the adventures of D'Artagnan -- a young swordsman intent on joining the king's musketeers. Young D'Artagnan becomes embroiled in court intrigues, international politics, and ill-fated affairs between royal lovers. As this third serial begins, it is now 1660, and although promised the captaincy of the musketeers at the close of Twenty Years After, D'Artagnan is still trailing his sword in the Louvre as a lowly lieutenant. Louis XIV is well past the age where he should rule, but the ailing Cardinal Mazarin refuses to relinquish the reins of power. Meanwhile, Charles II, a king without a country, travels Europe seeking aid from his fellow monarchs. Athos still resides at La Fère while his son, Raoul de Bragelonne, has entered into the service in the household of M. le Prince. As for Raoul, he has his eyes on an entirely different object than his father -- his childhood companion, Louise de la Valliere, with whom he is hopelessly in love. Porthos, now a baron, is off on some mysterious mission along with Aramis, who is now the Bishop of Vannes. (Volume II of II.)

Rollers from Abdun
The text of this vital volume in the exciting D'Artagnan series has a formatting problem; the free public domain edition from the Kindle Store is centered throughout and (with both sides of the page/screen thus unjustified) is very unpleasant to read. That programming defect is why I have rated what would otherwise be a 5-star book only 2-stars.

The OTHER free public domain version (with "Or Ten Years Later" added to the title) does not have this problem, but it has another issue relative to the series as a whole. Being based on a different organizational plan than most (if not ALL) of the other free public domain volumes in this series currently available in the Kindle Store, it leaves out much of the story. So, sadly, each of the two free public domain editions is presently unsatisfactory in its own way.

The D'Artagnan novels were originally 3 in number, with the third being a V-E-R-Y long "Vicomte de Bragelonne." Because of its extreme length, that third volume is commonly divided (in English-language versions) into EITHER 3 or 4 separately titled books. Both arrangements begin with (1) "The Three Musketeers" and (2) "Twenty Years After." In one scheme, 3 books follow the first two: (3) a SHORTER "Vicomte de Bragelonne," (4) "Louise de la Valliere" and (5) "The Man in the Iron Mask." In the other scheme, 4 books follow the first two: (3) an EVEN SHORTER "Vicomte de Bragelonne," (4) "Ten Years Later," (5) "Louise de la Valliere," and (6) "The Man in the Iron Mask." The total story content is the same from start to finish whether the entire series consists of 5 or 6 books; the difference is HOW that content is divided among the separate volumes. Therefore, even books bearing the same title MAY have different divisions of content depending upon which of the two schemes they belong to; mix titles from the two, and you WILL have continuity problems.

That is only ONE reason why (aside from the aforementioned formatting glitch) the two free, public domain versions of the shortened "Vicomte de Bragelonne" differ. A SECOND reason they differ is that the two sequential schemes were initially issued by two different publishers, each using its own translator; so the translations differ, too. For these reasons, rounding up separate volumes to assemble a truly complete, consistently-translated D'Artagnan series can be both challenging and confusing. (That's why, after much frustration, I opted to purchase, for $1.99, an ebook set titled "The D'Artagnan Romances." No publisher is identified, but its publishing date is February 28, 2012. That edition contains a unified series of the saga, thus assuring content completeness and a consistent translation throughout. The huge Delphi Dumas set also includes the D'Artagnan series, but the most recently updated edition has some problems with pictorial matter in these books which may be distracting.)

MEGA FREEDY
Unless you are familiar with Alexandre Dumas and his truly “addictive” writings, beware!!!

As a schoolgirl in France, like most, I became enamored with his “Three Musketeers” and its sequel “Twenty years later”. On a business trip to Paris, a long time ago, I picked up both volumes from one the the famous bookseller along the Seine.- When I had a bad bug a couple of months ago and wanted something to read that wouldn’t bore me, I dug up these two copies - each about 600 pages long - and enjoyed them as much as I did in my youth. But then, I knew I needed the “Vicomte de Bragelonne”, their sequel.

I have never tried drugs but these books seem to be just as addictive. The derring dos of the “Three Musketeers” who are actually four, eclipses by far any Superman story and in suspense, only the very ending of a top Agatha Christie mystery may remotely compare. You simply cannot put them down.

After enjoying the “Vicomte de Bragelonne” as much as its two prequels, towards the end of the book, I swore that this was it. However, I did not reckon with Alexandre Dumas. The book doesn’t exactly end in mid-chapter nor even in mid-sentece, it just ends in a way that you absolutely must have the next installment, namely “Louise de La Valliere”, immediately. Of course, i just ordered it.

If you loved the "Three Musketeers” and “Twenty Years later”, you’ll love the “Vicomte de Bragelonne just as much. Just be aware that when you are finished, your encounter with Alexandre Dumas will simply not be over by far.

from earth
First of all let me say that I read the Forgotten Books edition and lots of reviewers bash them. I would have bought another edition if I had been able to find one, but I couldn't. Therefore, I take what I got without criticism. The story itself continues the Three Musketeers tale and is the pivot point in the story. Charles II is restored to his place on the Throne of England. He isn't actually restored because he never sat on the throne, but the English got around that by ignoring 13 years of history, or whatever it was. It also covers the emergence of Louis the 14th, the Sun King. Both happen half way through this book, and set the stage for the rest of the saga. If you have read the first two books and are wondering if you should continue, or maybe jump to the end and read The Man In the Iron Mask, I strongly advise against it. The whole story turns on this volume and the musketeers even find themselves in the position of two against two. Read on, and don't miss a thing.
