    "Flink Wimperman, our expert music producer/Cadbury Egg Guru, walked in the office while I was reading this monster and said, "I read this book while I was in beautician school. It's not as good as Fifty Shades Of Grey. By the way, where is the rest of it?" Apparently this is the abridged version which must mean that the actual book is about 15 million pages long and would take five thousand lifetimes to read. I'm gonna need a cup of coffee."

    "If you like reading the classics then you will probably enjoy this book. If you haven't yet read The Three Musketeers or even The Count of Monte Cristo, then I would suggest starting there, but if you have, and you enjoyed them, then you will like The Black Tulip as well. It is a surprisingly exciting love story with a conniving villain. "

    "This is a classic book. I have always heard about the three musketeers when I was a child and had even watched the movie. The book gives details of each of the three musketeers and how they ended up being together to fight injustice. The author had done justice to each character and has kept the story intact and holds the reader's attention throughout the book. Recommended."

    "Great book if you fancy period pieces. Set in the 1780's under Kin Luis's rule, this story follows his wife, Mary Antoinette, who was undoubtedly blamed for the crime of a stolen necklace. This story describes and brings to life the details that eventually lead to the French Revolution. Excellent read if you like historical reads. "

    "The best Dumas' works was what I wanted. I found Louis de la Valliere (Oxford World's Classics) after a quick search. It continues off the from his earlier work, and is the middle section of his series. Great choice."
