stars I was a bit surprised to have the book end as I still had several CDs of the audiobook to go This discrepancy is annoying but understandable as both the book and the audiobook are just the first part of the book Dumas originally wrote as the final novel of the d Artagnan trilogy This last book was so enormous that it is almost always divided into 3, 4, or even 5 separate volumes I am reading

little note showing where the book would have ended in a 5 volume split I thought that the audiobook I was listening to was also from a 4 volume split but perhaps it was from a 3 volume split instead.I found sections of this volume very interesting such as the parts about General Monk but some of it was rather too long winded even for me Despite the tit Although this book is titled Vicomte de Bragelonne, there is very little about Raoul There is a chapter of two in the beginning, a couple in the middle and a few at the end, all the plot in between has nothing to do with him In fact, with the exception of D artagnan, there isn t much about any of the musketeers Athos gets the most attention Porthos and Aramis don t get any significant attention until about 2 3rds of the way through the book In spite of this, I thoroughly enjoyed the book I Although this book is titled Vicomte de Bragelonne, there is very little about Raoul There is a chapter of two in the beginning, a

point, I think I need to be clear about what series I am reading and commenting on The D Artagnan Romances were all originally published as serials, and they were later published in book form as a
