    1. El libro es más pequeño de lo que pensaba pero está genial para iniciarse en la lectura en francés. Muy recomendable.


    2. Obra de Dumas llena de intrigas con personajes muy vivos. La edición (notas y pequeño estudio final, la introducción del académico no es muy buena) permite darse cuenta de lo que Dumas respeta pero también inventa y añade a la historia, lo que nos da una buena visión de su trabajo de historiador y de autor.


    3. It's 1572 and in an effort to ease tensions between the Catholics and the Huguenots Henry III King of Navarre is married to Marguerite de Valois (Margot). Shortly after the marriage the Huguenots are slaughtered at the order of Charles IX and his mother Catherine de Medicis on Saint Bartholomew's Day. Catherine is also bent on destroying Henry as her astrologer has foretold that her three sons will die and Henry of Navarre will rule France through the Bourbon line. Margot's dashing lover La Mole [...]


    4. The infamous Saint Bartholomew Day Massacre is the historical backdrop for this wonderful story of love and death. Before I say more let me give a suggestion for obtaining an understanding of the character list which can be confusing to the reader. Even before starting the book, it is a good time to familiarize yourself with the four of ten children of Henry II and Catherine de Medici protrayed in the book. There are several Henrys Charles etc and you may get frustrated unless you iron it out [...]


    5. First of all, the Kindle French-language edition seems okay at first glance: the French accents are correctly placed, which is not true of the French accents in Christie's MURDER OF ROGER ACKROYD. There it's a minor annoyance because there's little French in the book; here it would be devastating, but the French seems perfect.Dumas fans know that he wrote four great books OR SERIES: The Count of Monte Cristo, a stand-alone; The Three Musketeers series, of which Twenty Years After is actually the [...]


    6. Absolutely love this book. I am a huge fan of classic literature and Alexander Dumas is a staple in my library. I had read this novel in a different language and was eager to get a hold of an English copy. I'm glad I did. Excellent read!


    7. The story of St. Bartholomew's Night massacre, the rift between Hugenots and Catholics, and the accession of France's greatest king, told as only Dumas can tell it.
