Sorry to take so long getting 34 done but I had to keep rerecording it as it just did not want to cooperate. I lost track of the numbe of times I read it through. I hope the rest of the book will go much quicker.

Thank you for your patience.

Here is the information on record 34:

Thank you and you have a Happy New Year also.

Glad 34 was PL OK, I really didn't want to have to spend any more time on that nightmare section. I have two more sections completed.

I feel a little sad that this project is coming to an end as it is my first solo project here. I should have the rest edited in the not too distant future.

Thanks,

I believe I still owe an updated summary for the book. Let me know if this works for you. Thanks - M

We is considered to be one of the first dystopian novels and the inspiration for later novels in the genre such as George Orwell's 1984 and Aldus Huxley's Brave New World. The story takes place in a future totalitarian world where conformity is good and individuality bad. It is written from the perspective of one of the members of this society who sees all he knows and loves falling apart due to others' quest for freedom of thought and action.

This book addresses the perpetual conflict between between independent individualism and mob mentality.


This work, by Russian author Yevgeny Zamyatin has the distinction of being the first book banned by the Soviet Union.

I found the ending a bit of a surprise the first time I read this book. The book is well worth making as available to people as we can.

Thank you for sticking with me throughout the book. I really appreciate your time reviewing my recordings and providing me with constructive feedback to help me to get better with my recordings. You deserve applause too! :clap:

Now, I just need to figure where to go from here...


Thanks again,

M
