This week my teasers are from The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas.
If you follow me on twitter, you will know that I adore the BBC's episodes of The Musketeers tv series. Absolutely fantastic! In light of the show, I thought I'd read the book and share some quotes I adore.
Athos, according to his system, neither encouraged nor dissuaded him. Athos believed that everyone should be left to his own free will. He never gave advice but when it was asked, and even then he required to be asked twice."People, in general," he said, "only ask advice not to follow it; or if they do follow it, it is for the sake of having someone to blame for having given it."
"I confess to you, d'Artagnan.""And I give you absolution beforehand. You see I am a good sort of a man.""Do not jest about holy things, my friend."
Synopsis: One of the most celebrated & popular historical romances ever written. The Three Musketeers tell the story of the early adventures of the young Gascon gentleman d'Artagnan & his three friends from the regiment of the King's Musketeers-Athos, Porthos & Aramis. Under the watchful eye of their patron M. de Treville, the four defend the honour of the regiment against the guards of the Cardinal Richelieu, & the honor of the queen against the machinations of the Cardinal himself as the power struggles of 17th-century France are vividly played out in the background. But their most dangerous encounter is with the Cardinal's spy. Milady, one of literature's most memorable female villains. Alexandre Dumas employs all his fast-paced narrative skills to bring this enthralling novel to a breathtakingly gripping & dramatic conclusion. Source: Goodreads
