The Man in the Iron Mask by Alexander Dumas
recommended by Xavier
An intriguing tale of French court intrigue out of characters one would never expect. It is brother against brother and veteran against veteran in a tale older than most european states but reads as easy as a middle school read. A reccomendation to any and all. The copy the library carries even comes with a preface that would allow someone unfamiliar with its background get right into the story.
