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.

A revolution in it's time to still charm 250 years later!
The story is so engaging that I entirely forgot it's age. Fielding's wit and sarcasm still bite and it would be a very dark heart indeed that is not entirely satisfied with the conclusion. It is well worth the many-hour listen!
(Knowing a smattering of Latin definitely enriches the humorous experience, though nothing is lost of the plot if you are an adamant disciple of living languages only.)

Story was slow and long, but ended well!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
It depends on the friend. The great moments of humor and enlightenment were punctuations on a much more mundane text. I felt there was too much character development for some, and not enough to others.
What about Charlton Griffin’s performance did you like?
Griffin did great, though I couldn't tell the Irish accented characters apart. A lot of emotion, and he pulled off timing on the comic parts perfectly.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Tom is probably like most people--easily influenced by passion yet putting on airs about being full of honor, trust, and dignity.
