Three Musketeers

 I recently read Will Hobson's translation of the Three Musketeers and found it a much better translation than the previous version I'd read.

The problem is that he doesn't seem to have translated any of the later books.

Does anyone know of a good modern translation of the later books? (you can get all six D'Artangan books for about £3 on Kindle, but  the translation is clunky to say the least and doesn't tempt me to buy it even at that price)

You can also get the complete D'Artangan books free on Kindle. I don't know what the translation is like, but for free it may be worth a look.

Is that the set I mentioned in my post?

there weren't free, but only a few pounds.

I browsed a couple of pages via 'look inside' and they were very poor. (I'd been alerted by the feedback comments)

I don't think so, the one I saw has no feedback yet.

I'm using my tablet and can't manage to copy the full URL for it, but search "alexandre dumas free kindle book" on Amazon and it should come up.

Thanks. I've downloaded 'Twenty Years After'-I'll see if it's any good.

Kari would be the person to ask, it's her area of (intense) interest.

Good thought. It's so long since she's posted on LJ that I'd forgotten.

I've just sent her an email via her website.

Thanks.
