The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle Volume II by Tobias Smollett (1721 - 1771 ) .

AN ABANDONED SOLO BEING COMPLETED BY NEECHEELOK70
Volume II continues the story of the fortunes and misfortunes of the egotistical dandy Peregrine Pickle. The novel is written as a series of adventures, with every chapter typically describing a new adventure. There is also a very long independent story, "The Memoirs of a Lady of Quality", written by Frances Vane, Viscountess Vane, inside the novel. Frances Vane, Viscountess Vane (1715 - 1788), known as Lady Fanny, was a British memoirist known for her highly public adulterous relationships. (Wikipedia )

Thanks Carolin!

This will be a duet with Martin Geeson, who has kindly agreed to finish the book he began with Volume I.

Although there are only 32 named remaining chapters, Chapter 81 is 50,213 words. It is essentially a book within a book, so will be broken down into at least 12 sections.

Hi Patti

It's great to be back in Smollett's world of rogues, charlatans and demi-mondaines. :)

Everything is PL OK (and most elegantly read!) -- there's only a minuscule point of pronunciation which can be passed over if you like:
@2:19 you give 'encōmiums' an extra syllable, making it 'encom-ōn-iums'.

I'm hoping to start on my part earlier than I'd expected, especially now you have tempted me with yours.

Best
Martin

Encomium fixed.
You know how you've never heard a word, and then suddenly it's everywhere?
This is the second project this weekend where that word was used.
Either I said it right last time, or they didn't notice.......
