Inhaltsangabe: All for one and one for all! Thats the rallying cry of the Musketeersguards of the French Kingand the call to adventure for young readers enjoying their first taste of Dumas classic swashbuckler. Aramis, Athos, Porthos, and the not-quite-yet Musketeer DArtagnan use their wits and their swords to battle an evil Cardinal, the traitorous Milady, and other enemies of the French court. Abridged for easier reading and carefully rewritten, with Classic Starts, young readers can experience the wonder of timeless stories from an early age.
Rezension: This swashbuckling classic is set in Louis XIII's France at the same time as Descartes' wanderings took him in 1627 to La Rochelle, whose Huguenot occupants were being besieged by Cardinal Richelieu. Dumas's cardinal, one of the book's many real-life characters, is simultaneously laying devilish plans to be rid of d'Artagnan and his fellow musketeers Athos, Porthos and Aramis. I'd forgotten how complex the plot is, how relentless the action (you can't cut to the chase the whole thing is one long desperate chase on horseback, in postillions, aboard ships) and how outrageous the characters. There's no grey in Dumas's novels, especially where women are concerned. The goodies, such as saintly Constance Bonacieux with whom our brave, penniless, honourable, hot-headed young hero from Gascony, d'Artagnan, is in love are purest snowy white. The baddies, represented by beautiful, treacherous Milady de Winter, once bigamously married to Athos and now working as a spy for Richelieu, make Madame Defarge look as dangerous as Miss Muffet. --Sue Arnold, The Guardian
