Alexandre Dumas is a genius when it comes to storytelling. This man had a natural talent for captivating his readers from the beginning till the end. I have read several books written by Dumas, and all of them were equally great. It will be wrong to say that one of his books is better than other works. Books of Alexandre Dumas have different topics, but they are all equally eloquently and professionally written.

Of course, if you want to get precise historic knowledge, it is wise to read non-fiction historic books. While reading historic novels by Alexandre Dumas, you can get a glimpse of a piece of history.
