The top seven bromances in literature

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Becky Ferreira tagged her top seven bromances in literature, including:
Aramis, Porthos, Athos, and D’Artagnan, of Alexandre Dumas’ The Three Musketeers

Who says bromances have to be duos? The swashbuckling shenanigans of these bros show that quartets are double the fun as far as male bonding is concerned.

It’s no wonder they sum up their deep friendship with the iconic motto, “All for one, and one for all.”

The Three Musketeers also appears on John Mullan's list of ten of the best cardinals in literature.
