Memorise entire novel


In 6 weeks I am booked for a full recital of Candide by Voltaire, in the original French. I’m already reciting the novel in the 4 hour - 4 and half hour time suitable for a fluent recital.
The venue is The Pond in Edinburgh at the performance begins at 6:00 p.m. and will be finished by 10:30 p.m. at the latest. Everyone is welcome. There are 3 nights booked, the 4th, the 7th and the 9th.
It has taken a few years to get here from a standing start and not having any French to speak of.
Wish me luck.
I intend to launch a crowd funder from the first night

That’s impressive. How long did it take you to memorize it? Did you use any memory techniques other than repetition?
