The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes

A Room with a View
Incredibly dull. Life is too short to plow through this drivel.

The Three Musketeers
&quot;Charlotte Backson, Comtesse de la Fere, Milady de Winter,&quot; said he, &quot;your crimes have wearied men on earth and God in heaven. If you know a prayer, say it--for you are condemned, and you shall die.&quot;<br/>Athos<br/>Wonderful characters. Fascinating story. I haven't read this for fifty years. I'm so glad I decided to read it again. I still love it.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

Louise de la Valliere
Compared to the preceding volumes, this sequel is not as riveting. Much too wordy. Too little action. Too much romantic intrigue. Frankly, it all hangs together with a doomed romance. But it does develop D'Artagnan, Athos, Aramis and Porthos (who has changed very little). What characters! But Louis XIV, Raoul (the Vicomte de Bragelonne) and Louise de la Valliere - ah, those characters are not so admirable.<br/>I expect much more from the final installment, The Man in the Iron Mask.

The Man in the Iron Mask
Unfortunately, this is the end of the D'Artagnan romances. And that is a pity. On the other hand, if you never read any of the sequels to the Three Musketeers, for you, the characters will never grow old or die. But if you have read the entire saga and are determined to read to the end, this volume is much better than Louise de la Valliere (a pitiful woman), and your curiosity will be satisfied.

Twenty Years After
This sequel is almost as good as the first volume. Entertaining stuff. If you enjoyed the Three Musketeers, you will enjoy Twenty Years After too.

The Vicomte de Bragelonne
Although this is the third volume in the series, it consists of the Vicomte and is followed by 10 Years Later, Louise de la Valliere and The Man in the Iron Mask. As usual, the Musketeers continue to amaze us, but the Vicomte, not so much.

The Count of Monte Cristo
An incredible adventure story and a classic in the best sense of the word. Although it is over a thousand pages long, no one who reads it will regret the time spent. There is no easier way than 3 installments a week from "Daily Lit." For the life of me, I cannot understand why this novel isn't considered one of the best ever written.
