I noticed that a lot of people were confused about the order of Alexandre Dumas' works, specifically the Three Musketeers and following.
I found out from an Amazon.com blurb that the order is thus:
The Three Musketeers
Twenty Years After
The Vicomte de Bragelonne
Louise de la Valiere
The Man in the Iron Mask
I also discovered that the latter three books were originally published by Dumas as one large book (with over 200 chapters, no less ;-), but were later split in to three 'volumes' by disgruntled readers.
So! Now that I have discovered this, I am going to read these five books without confusion (hopefully!); I hope that they are as good as the Count of Monte Cristo!!
