Overall Rating: 3.91 based on 54 ratings
It is hard to mention Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) without his son, Alexandre Dumas “The Younger” (1824-1895). Both Dumas’ built careers based on titillation and scandal, which kept Parisian audiences wrapped in their work for almost the entirety of the 19th century. Both Dumas’ were womanizers, using their private indiscretions as source material. Dumas The Elder is known for The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers, while Dumas The Younger is noted for Camille and Claude’s Wife. (Add picture)

Tremendous fun, and one can think of him as the thriller writer of his day.

His characters are largely compelling, and occasionally quite complex, but his dialogue is tends to be stilted, and while his sense of narrative is very strong, he sometimes drifts off into bizarre flights of philosophical maundering.

I'm surprised there's only one comment for him so far. "The Count of Monte Cristo" is a little long, but a classic that's almost always intriguing, and it seldom lags IMO. "The 3 Musketeers" never interested me that much, but "The Man In The Iron Mask," though similar in many respects to "The Count" was decent. One of the greatest French writers, and one of the better world writers from the middle of the 19th century, he was the son of a French nobleman and an African slave from the West Indies.
