Going to send drafts for chapters three and four tomorrow to Rick.

Somewhat daunted by the fact that my Penguin Classics edition is nearly 1000 pages, but I could plausibly read the whole thing in a day. Possibly? Encouragement welcomed from any on the flist who have read and finished the book please!
