My Thoughts on Man In the Iron Mask by Alexandre Dumas
My love for Classic Literature has never wavered. And while I must admit that “Man In the Iron Mask” was not my favorite book ever, it was also not my least favorite book ever.
My first introduction to the Three Musketeers was the PBS show “Wishbone” about the dog who retold stories from Classic Literature. My second was the 1993 film with Charlie Sheen, Kiefer Sutherland, Chriss O’Donnell, and Oliver Platt. I loved them so much I had to read the book, and I loved the book start to finish.
But that was where my adventure with this series ended until recently. I had The Man In the Iron Mask on my read list for several years before it finally floated to top of my audio book collection. I listened to it, I enjoyed some parts, did not really enjoy some others, but loved the story as a whole.
Without giving away any details, what I learned most from this read was the way Dumas concluded the adventures of Porthos, Athos, Aramis, and d’Artagnan the four friends that all began with The Three Musketeers.
