"I'm very happy that I read this book because it definitely has some strong suits including: great banter between The Musketeers, fascinating political intrigue, and an adventurous romp through France. But no work is perfect, which is one of the things I love most about art. So my two main critiques of this book are: the uninteresting war between France and England, and the choice to take Madame Bonacieux out of narrative too soon. Despite these flaws the story is still great. #thethreemusketeers"
