Has anyone read the newer translations of the Three Musketeers? Is it easier to read? Closer to the original intent? Is it not really any different?

One that's about a hundred years old, and the one from Project Gutenberg.

Hmm, I have the Trident Press copy, which I enjoy, but it is more of a literal translation (if you're into that). I actually can't find who the translator is, but the ISBN is 1-58279-047-7.

For one that preserves the flow/humor a bit more, the Bantam edition is a good bet.
