Volume 3

Tom Jones is greatly admired not only for the meticulous craft with which it was written, but also for its humor, objectivity, and penetrating psychological depth. It is without a doubt one of the great contributions to the English novel, and as such will always maintain a place of honor in world literature. Through the minute examination of the motives of his characters, Henry Fielding revealed many universal truths about human nature. That he could do so by employing the comic style of mock-heroic literature is all the more extraordinary.

In Volume 3, we find our hero in London. Everything now comes to a crescendo of furious activity and comic missteps. Tom actively pursues Sophia, whom he loves desperately. However, his feelings are misrepresented to her by the wiles of Lady Bellaston, who desires Tom for herself. As other incidents pile into the plot, Tom finds himself becoming ever more estranged from his beloved Sophia. And when Squire Western and Blifil arrive, things look bleak indeed. However, it is always darkest before the dawn, and all's well that ends well. Download and start listening now!

    " A rollicking picaresque journey. Tom leaves the countryside and ventures to London, in hot pursuit of his love, Sophia. To say that he has adventures along the way is an understate...but Tom needs them because he has a lot to learn about discretion. "

    " That scoundrel! So adorable. He was the kind of fellow women want to tame. I totally enjoyed this romp. "

    " It took a little while to finish this book. It was a little daunting given it's size. The story was fun and had quite a few funny parts in it. The one thing that I didn't like about it was the author constantly addressing the reader. I've never like that, in any book. It may be meant to be funny but I got annoyed as it wouldn't let me suspend reality. I started skipping those chapters altogether, just so I could keep the story going. "
