Read by Mark F Smith for Librovox. 1844. 26 hours and 40 minutes.
Is The Three Musketeers the longest audio book I've tackled to date? I think it might just be. I didn't find the length intimidating. Quite the contrary actually. It was comforting to know what I would be listening to as I work each day. It was comforting to know that I wouldn't have to make a decision--at least not about that.
Athos, Portos, Aramis, and D'Artagnan star in this action-packed adventure story set in France in the 1620s. Every other chapter or so there seems to be a crisis for them to face--a challenge to face together, of course.
I do not think any of the movie adaptations I've seen cover the whole book, the whole story, all the characters.
I was only planning on listening to this one for the Paris in July experience. But listening made me want to read the book. I think I'll enjoy reading it even more than listening to it.
