There is a technical error, a double voice, at this MP3 file from 16:20 till 16:31:

It is "Germinal" by Émile ZOLA, part I - 6. At first I thought it was an error of my download, then I listened this part online in a browser. And these eleven seconds of double voice are present in the MP3 file on the server too.

It is a pity because I really like how Françoise reads.

The reader hasn't posted for over 2 years , so I'm not quite sure there is a way of fixing it that will not make things worse :(
Unless it is a very common phrase we could get from his other sections :hmm:

Rasseneur l'examinait de nouveau; et il y eut, sur son visage, un changement rapide, une sympathie soudaine. Enfin, il a dit à sa femme:

-C'est Maheu qui m'amène Monsieur, un herscheur à lui, pour voir s'il n'y a pas une chambre en haut, et si nous ne pourrions par faire crédit d'une quinzaine.

Alors, l'affaire fut conclue en quatre paroles.

These are the sentences which got mixed up. I could record them, but it will be the mixture of female and male voices. Besides, French is not my mother tongue. I speak French with a slight accent.

It's a coincidence certainly, but it is one of the most impressive moments of the story. Rasseneur refused a credit and a room in his hotel to Étienne, but when Étinne said that he knew Pluchart, another worker kind of active in an union, Rasseneur changes his mind suddenly. And the affair was concluded in four words.

aradlaw has a backup of this. Maybe contact him to check and see if this glitch is present in the backup file in case it happened somehow in the transfer of the file to archive during cataloging.
