From School Library Journal
Grade 6 Up-With swelling musical background, the clash of swordplay, and the occasional thump of a head being cut off, the St. Charles Players bring back the feeling of radio theater in their rendition of the classic tale by Alexandre Dumas. The players' voices emit every nuance required to let listeners experience the swashbuckling deeds of the famous heroic threesome and the boy called D'Artagnan who wants to join their ranks. When the young man arrives in Paris with the wish to enlist with the King's Musketeers, he finds himself challenged to three duels in his first afternoon in the city by men who turn out to be Porthos, Aramis, and Athos-the Three Musketeers. Instead of fighting against them, the twists of fate have D'Artagnan battling for them against the evil Cardinal Richelieu's guards. After...

From AudioFile
Naxos follows its usual pattern of punctuating the narrative with carefully chosen classical musical segments appropriate to the mood of the particular part of the story. Bill Homewood reads this tale of French political intrigue in an emotionally intense British voice that is crisp and effective. He shades his characters subtly through intonation and pacing, his voice rising with excitement as various crises develop and climax. The story details the final days of the Three Musketeers and D'Artagnan, with only one left alive at the end. Heavily abridged by Homewood himself, the tale retains its essential core, and the result is exciting and satisfying. D.W.
