It was a surprise to me to learn that Dumas was biracial, and to see him tackle the topic of racism in his day. I enjoyed the book so much - although I deducted some from my rating due to the dated descriptions (for their day, quite daring I have no doubt, but sexist and racist by today's standards). I'd love to see this book made into a movie, with all its swashbuckling and thrilling set pieces and a great cast.
