Hector de Sainte-Hermine was the weakest part of the novel and did annoy me but I did wonder how much of that was down to Dumas having to get an audience reading the story in serial form had to do with that - it doesn't suit long character development.


I came out of it thinking I was glad to have got to read it rather than disappointed it failed to live up to its potential.

It did feel like it was very unpolished from the original form it was published in and I suspect (hope?) Dumas would have polished out a lot of the flaws with the change of format from serial to a single novel.
