THE LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF NICHOLAS NICKLEBY, by Charles Dickens (1812 - 1870).

Nicholas Nickleby was Dickens's third novel following on from Pickwick Papers and Oliver twist. It has a cast of wonderful characters that include Wackford Squeers, the reprehensible and villainous headmaster whose reign of terror at his school in Yorkshire resulted in the abuse and deaths of many of his unwanted and orphaned children, Mr Vincent Crummles and his hilariously inept touring company, the munificent Cheeryble brothers, Ralph Nickleby, Nicholas's uncle, a mean spirited man who is driven by avarice and irrational hatred of his nephew, Smike a boy brutalised by Squeers and his family leaving him mentally and physically handicapped and Mrs Nickleby, Nicholas’s mother, who is pretentiously genteel and somewhat garrulous. <br><br>There are many more finely drawn characters who combine to make this not only a comic masterpiece of the period but more than one love story threads its way through the dialogue. Probably what we would call today a ‘Romacom’ and as such Nicholas Nickleby never ceases to delight. (Summary by Peter Keeble)
This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-life-and-adventures-of-nicholas-nickleby-version-3-by-charles-dickens/

  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/967
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Peter,
I would be happy to MC this for you.
MaryAnn

Edit: MW is up. I've shortened your file names. I'll add ID3 tags during cataloging, so they are optional for you as you go (but title is sometimes nice depending on how the DPL chooses to listen]. Looks like you are already an old hand with Dickens, so enjoy and let me know if you have any questions. :thumbs:

Thank you

Elli has said she will DPL this.

I'm off to Prague for a week, and then I will kick it off when I get back.

They tell me that you'll lose your mind as you grow older. What they don't tell you is that you won't miss it very much.
