''My favorite book . . . No part of the world has ever seemed to me so charming as these pages, and not even my friends are quite so real, perhaps quite so dear, as D'Artagnan.'' --Robert Louis Stevenson
''The name Alexandre Dumas is more than French--it is universal.'' --Victor Hugo
''D'Artagnan is the captain of the Musketeers and threads his way among political plotters and old friends. Dumas works in political intrigue, clandestine romance, duels, honor, the capricious Sun King, and battle scenes, for which he is justly famous. Historical characters mix believably with fictional ones rendered with zeal by narrator Simon Vance, a former BBC Radio presenter and newsreader, a stage and television actor, both in Europe and America.
He has recorded over 400 audiobooks. He gives the story the full-voiced treatment. He is especially good at the death scenes, Porthos's booming voice, Louis's bombast, the quavering voices of the aging Musketeers, and the chaos of battle.'' --SoundCommentary.com
