he ran to the window, and called aloud, "Bathilde! Bathilde!"

[Pg 275]The chevalier understood that there was a communication between the rooms on the third and fourth stories, and some relation between the gardener and the musician, and thought that perhaps if he remained at the window she would not come on to the terrace; therefore he closed his window with a careless air, taking care to keep a little opening behind the curtain, through which he could see without being seen. What he had foreseen happened. Very soon the head of a charming young girl appeared on the terrace; but as, without doubt, the ground, on which he had ventured with so much courage, was too damp, she would not go any further. The little dog, not less timid than its mistress, remained near her, resting its white paws on the window, and shaking its head in silent denial to every invitation. A dialogue was established between the good man and the young girl,. . . Read More

This book was filled with adventure, romance, royalty, intrigue, glamour, misfortune, love, humor, and good fun. I liked the characters and the story. It was well paced and fun to read.

This is a fun Dumas book, a relatively quick read, it has the romance of The Black Tulip and the adventure of Le Reine Margot, definitely a good book with an interesting storyline. The hero is easy to like and retains the same characteristics of a good Dumas protagonist. This book is the first of a

There's no such thing as a bad Dumas book. The Conspirators is a great book, it just wasn't one of my favorites.

This was a fun book to read and it just makes me feel good inside to read 'classics'. I will admit to skimming a little during the historical political explanations that didn't seem to be super important to the plot. I just don't know a lot about French history and it all sort of went over my head.

Apparso per la prima volta nel 1842, Il cavaliere di Harmental è il primo romanzo storico generato dalla prolifica collaborazione tra Alexandre Dumas e Auguste Maquet, da cui sono nati numerosissimi e famosissimi romanzi; una collaborazione durata circa un decennio e finita in tribunale a causa del

I absolutely loved this! What a great way to start the year and get myself back into a consistent reading pattern. This book was so fun and enjoyable and I can’t wait to read more of Dumas’ books in the future.

It showed that this was his first historical novel. It leaned a lot on comedy, the way Molière's plays do. Also more romance heavy than anything else, he has written in my opinion. The last 200 pages were a joyful ride action-wise.

I still enjoyed it a lot, but I have enjoyed his

The book is pleasing. The plot is mainly a love story set amidst a political turmoil during the reign of Louie the XIV-th. The writing is clear and concise, but sometimes it feels like it treats the events which are followed in too a lighthearted manner, exhibiting quite enough irony and theatrical

I quite enjoyed this novel. The characters were charming and many of the things which usually annoy me in Dumas' stories weren't present. The events which are described are all relevant to the story, and the narrative moves along at a reasonable pace. All in all, I found this a satisfying read which

I am a Dumas fan, so maybe this is a little biased.
Le Chevalier D'Harmental tells the story of a young chevalier and his adventure.
It's clearly similar to the three musketeers but not so deep and compelling.
Still it does the job captivating the reader with it's perfect characterizations and descr
