Section 31. "The Servant"

That was beautifully read. I liked the emotion you put into it. :)

Just one little word keeping it from being PL OK.
0:32 - the word "African" is missing from the title of the recording. It should be "The African Servant". Simply insert it and you'll be PL OK on this recording.

Thanks,

M

I have one comment to make on the recording. You've got some silences in mid-paragraph (e.g., at 1:57) that are noticeably longer than the others but not such that you need to edit this recording. I just wanted to make you aware of it and to try to keep the length of the pauses for the end of a sentence similar to each other. It helps it flow a little more smoothly. Everything else was fine with the recording.

PL OK

Thanks,

M

Just a couple of quick fixes needed here.

1. 3:56 - there is a repeat of "as soon as we had risen". Remove either version.
2. Please add about 4 seconds of silence to the end to get it to about 5 seconds in length.


Thanks,

M
