    This sequel to The Three Musketeers is the thinking man s Blues Brothers, a getting the band back together tale that is set where such stories should be set among friends in their forties and fifties, still vigorous in decline, constrained by the comforts and commitments of middle age Hollywood, for the last quarter century, has preferred grumpy old _____ movies fill in the blank, astronauts, spies, mobsters, etc , but such heroes in retirement offer few interesting challenges like the crew of T [...]

    Wow Just wow I loved The Three Musketeers, but if anything I think that this was even better Twenty Years After is the second installment in the Musketeers tale one that continues into a third part, Ten Years Later , which is normally split itself into three, the last of which is The Man in teh Iron Mask That might be because I didn t already know the story, but I think it was also because there s now a world weariness about the four heroes All now in their forties, they re almost anachronisms s [...]

    in un matrimonio, i vent anni oltre a equivalere matematicamente alla pena dell ergastolo scontata di un terzo come funziona davanti alla legge nei casi di patteggiamento e la cosa dovrebbe far riflettere sono da taluni festeggiati come nozze di cristallo che, a dirla proprio tutta, come metafora materica trasmette una certa qual impressione di fragilit spunto di riflessione due l caso di dumas e dei suoi quattro moschettieri, succede il contrario mi azzarderei quasi a dire che vent anni dopo il [...]

    Bello, bello, bello Sebbene pi malinconico e, forse, un po meno rocambolesco de I tre moschettieri, ritrovo qui i miei eroi invecchiati, maturi, ma sempre forti e tenaci Dopo una partenza in sordina, finalmente i quattro amici indissolubili si ritrovano, anche se su lati opposti della barricata Confesso che mi sono commossa di fronte a questa amicizia cos profonda da superare le divergenze politiche l affetto degli uni verso gli altri, messo spesso a dura prova, ne esce indenne Ecco perch , dopo [...]

    I have only two enduring memories of this book.The first is waiting at a supermarket, with the shopping on the belt, reaching into the pocket of my grey overcoat and discovering this book there, were I had plainly put it for safe keeping and then forgot about it It was a small library book, possibly an old Everyman edition, and luckily I was then still young enough that I didn t have to pay library fines for late returned books So I was able to enjoy the pure joy of escaping the eternity of two [...]

    No one ever talks about Twenty Years After, and it s hard to find out it exists unless you re looking for information on the Three Musketeers I think the main reason behind this is just its bulk It s a huge volume, and it is pretty daunting thinking you will be able to get through all those pages However, it is still paced very well, and there is a lot of action here Twenty Years after is much character driven than Three Musketeers, and the emotional connection you feel to the characters and h [...]

    A differenza del primo libro del ciclo, I tre moschettieri, non conoscevo la storia di questo bellissimo romanzo e questo, per certi versi, me lo ha fatto apprezzare ancora di pi.Le rivalit politiche, nella Francia in lotta tra monarchia e Fronda, dividono anche i nostri quattro eroi che avevamo lasciato vent anni prima.Sono infatti passati vent anni dal loro primo incontro, ma la generosit , il coraggio e l astuzia non sono certo invecchiati Sar l Amicizia a riunirli ancora, rendendoli invincib [...]

    This book pales in comparison to The Three Musketeers only because Mordaunt is a much less interesting villain than his mother, Milady Again, it would not be too difficult to twist this story so that Mordaunt becomes no villain at all His goal is simply to avenge the murder of his mother To that end he stabs a man who was already dying, he kills another of the murderers on a field of battle, and he tries to blow up the remaining four In his mind, he s simply trying to get for himself the justice [...]

    Better than Three Musketeers Characters are much developed and fleshed out and mature More mature and thought provoking themes Loved reading every minute of it Not one dull moment in all its 800 pages I love Dumas sense of humor d Artagnan and Porthos really stood out so much in this one, witty and truly humorous I really enjoy laughing at true wit in a book It makes me feel happy Dumas plays with history quite a bit and these can t be quite called historical in a true sense, but as for a gene [...]

    In a room of the Palais Cardinal which we already know, near a table with silver gilt corners, loaded with papers and books, a man was sitting, his head resting in his hands.Thus starts the musketeers second adventure, set 20 years after their first, but outdoing it in terms of scope, political impact and effect for this time both France and England are in the middle of populist revolts, the first Fronde in Paris, Cromwell s war against the monarchy in England Dumas does a wonderful job of inser [...]

    The second and unfortunately often neglected story in the d Artagnon cycle from Dumas is 20 Year Later This takes place during the regency of Louis XIV when the king is too young to take the throne and here Louis is 5 when Louis XIII dies in 1643 and Richelieu rules in place of Queen Anne until Louis takes over in 1661 and with the background of Le Fronde a failed coup d tat that haunted Louis XIV all his life and was one of the reasons for his paranoia and his concentration of power in the pala [...]

    Non pi tempo di sarabandaVent anni sono passati per tutti, non solo per i Quattro.Chiss come sarebbe stato leggere Vent anni dopo a 14 anni, o a 24 Invece l ho letto ora e mi rimasta una strana sensazione.Si potrebbe parlare d altro, di qualche smagliatura nei raccordi tra gli innumerevoli capitoli puntate, di qualche trucchetto di troppo per tenere avvinti i lettori, di qualche didascalia che aveva senso nell edizione a puntate, ma suona ripetitiva per chi legge il romanzo tutto intero.Ma la le [...]

    I liked The Three Musketeers better, but this was no disappointment I adore the characters My only real frustration was that it took so long to get the four of them together.I kept getting my princes mixed up, and then Condi, Conte and Gondy, and it doesn t help that I read Queen Margot earlier this year and the books have characters with the same family names But name confusion on the reader s behalf is standard for Dumas, at least for me.One of my favorite quotes was d Artagnan s description o [...]

    Sono passati vent anni da quella notte tempestosa e buia che ha chiuso in maniera cos tragica e fatale la vicenda de I tre moschettieri Da allora, i quattro moschettieri hanno perso la consuetudine di vita comune che li aveva cos tanto legati Sono diventati uomini fatti, in un contesto storico che intanto profondamente mutato Vent anni dopo, scritto da Alexandre Dumas, il romanzo centrale del Ciclo dei moschettieri, trilogia che inizia con I tre moschettieri e termina con Il visconte di Bragelon [...]

    An excellent, entertaining, engrossing epic, a series of elegantly arranged adventures and intrigues that really drew me in It was a rollicking good story, and the characters were brought to life with skill At first, the situation in the book is a shock striking down the cherished tradition of all for one and one for all in one of the world s great classics, the Musketeers are estranged and apart, and actually on different sides in the Cardinalist Frondist conflict But this unfortunate turn of e [...]


    Judy

    Book 2 of the D Artagnan RomancesThe Musketeers re unite to fight Milady s son, Mordaunt The book is chock full of the same humor that made The Three Musketeers a classic As usual, Dumas tweaks history to fit his novel s needs, but even so, I m an even confirmed Dumas o phile I m looking forward to reading Vicomte de Bragelonne next year.

    Changing my previous rating of 3 stars.It took me a little while to warm up to this sequel to The Three Musketeers but it was worth perservering Once again, our 4 friends have become embroiled in court politics, this time involving Richelieu s successor Cardinal Mazarin I had a little trouble identifying all the people as some of the historical characters were unknown to me yet were presented with little or no explanation Thank goodness for the internet Also a little puzzled about Porthos I don [...]

    Libro imperdibile per chi ha amato I tre moschettieri, Vent anni dopo un degno seguito sopratutto perch molto diverso dal precedente volume.Sono passati vent anni, il cardinale Richelieu ormai morto e con lui anche il vecchio Re, la Francia nelle mani dell infante Luigi XIV che per , troppo piccolo per governare, lascia la reggenza alla regina Anna d Austria con al fianco il un nuovo cardinale, l italiano Mazzarino I quattro amici sono lontani e divisi, hanno preso strade diverse e solo D artagn [...]

    Caitlin

    This book was just as good as the sequel.I am serious I didnt think it would be as good as the first one, because the three musketeers was seriously amazing, but this book was just as good possibly better So just to give you a heads up, my favorite character Comte de la Fere Athos did NOT die Thank gorfo But somebody else did scroll down to read it remember its a SPOILER Dear Charles I,It is very unfortunate that you had to die It s not like anybody elected you to be king, maybe you could have d [...]

    If he s not the greatest writer that ever lived, he s in the top five I ve read 3 of his books in the past year and all 3, The Three Musketeers, The Count of Monte Cristo and now, Twenty Years After, are 3 of my favorite of all time The Count is in my top 3, if not the top Twenty Years After takes place 20 years after the end of The Three Musketeers Our 4 heroes are a bit older, but just as heroic, faithful and downright fun to follow Pick this up and I guarantee you won t put it down quickly

    Twenty Years After by Alexandre Dumas is the first sequel to the original The Three Musketeers, to be followed by two, three, or four volumes based on the edition you have D Artagnan and his companions are now in middle age, but a new young un takes the stage, Raoul, the Vicomte de Bragelonne, with Athos as his guardian and probable father.The action is a bit confusing, because Twenty Years After is set during he Wars of the Fronde, in which both the bourgeois classes and the nobility have compl [...]


    Erika L. Miller

    This is a wonderful story and only does justice to the original Three Musketeers story This book is just not a sequel to the story but an excellent continuation of the story The characters have changed and yet they have remained the same d Artangan is still the confident Gascon who has an idea and ambition for everything, Athos is still the loyal, nobel and honest cornerstone of the group, Aramis the loveable playboy who finds himself at odds with his ambitions of the past and desires for the fu [...]

    Turns out sequels were a bad idea even then Twenty Years after is the novel that continues the life of D Arthagnan and his three friends as they ride together once again of course along with their servants to save their country However, this time they are older and not nearly as funny A lot of the book is missing the humour that made the first book one of my favourite reads The comradeship does not actually begin for a hundred plus pages and even then, something seems to be missing The character [...]

    Dumas was the master of truly getting the reader so involved in the narrative, that we forget we are long past the age of swordplay As the second volume in the Musketeer collection, Dumas brings us back together with the main characters while focusing on La Fronde, the French Civil War that raged as Louis XIV was coming of age Athos, Porthos, and Aramis return, along with D Artagnan of course, and we also see where Dumas is going with the future, as Raoul is introduced While the original Three M [...]


    Timothy Boyd

    The 4 musketeers band together again after 20 years apart for a second adventure Set against the backdrop of England s civil war this story reads and feels much like the first novel A very good sequel that stands up well to the first novel Like the first one there are parts that drag due to the dated writing style The storyline and characters are still very good Recommended
