FRIDAY: The Three Musketeers
I am not sure what possessed me to pick this book up from the library. I seldom read things that would be considered "classics." But I thoroughly enjoyed this lengthy tome - I couldn't put it down!
If you have seen the Disney movie with Charlie Sheen and co., you have the general idea, but the screenwriters trimmed several plot points for the movie. D'Artagnan comes to Paris to become a musketeer and ends up with duels scheduled with the Three Musketeers from the title - Aramis, Porthos and Athos. Rather than fighting, they join forces to fight a more crucial battle against Cardinal Richelieu. Fantastic story!
