Hi Stav and Wayne

chapter 20 @ 20:52

John,

Good reading. Enjoyable. Easy to tell characters apart.

However, there are a couple of things that may need your attention:

8:36 “It was miraculous,"... You said It was marvelous

11:40 “These letters are of no earthly use; you left out the word “of

17:32 they only existed in our imaginations you said they only existed in my imaginations

This will be interesting, after listening to the first two chapters, to listen to the last one with 17 more in between. Quite the story.

Here's Chapter 6: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/stormoflondon_06_blazedebury_128kb.mp3
duration 22:11

This one reminded me of covid19 in UK: no one travels in or out of the island and people have lost their jobs.

I will not claim another section for now, but may come back later. Thank you!

Hay, thanks for chapter 6. Hope you enjoyed it. This is in deed a very thought provoking book.
Love gothic novels? Try Children Of The Abbey. Like surprising mysteries? Try The Amathist Cross. Looking for an easy read? Try Harriet's Choice.

Gary,

I am finding this story very interesting. Here are few things we need to work on:

At the beginning you need only .5 to one second of silence. You have over one second and quite a bit of noise before you start speaking.

2:56 as he walked away from his ancestral mansion; You said as he walked along from his ancestral mansion;

3:16.5 A stumble with the word “and

3:25.5 though one imposed by the sense of duty; You said though only imposed by the sense of duty;

4:47.5 but the Strand You said but the Stare-and Strand is Pronounced like Stand with an 'r'.

8:37 When he thought of all the social solecisms likely to occur in this state of incognito you said stoicisms

9:11 The reading just before 9:11 has an extra sound. Maybe an 'a' starting Anarchism then waiting and saying the whole word? Than sound should be deleted.

10:14 Not necessary to change unless you want to: Kant is pronounced like “Want”.

17:09 when they had reached the shade of the long avenue you said: when you have reached the shade of the long avenue

20:24 hurriedly said the mimic This whole phrase is mumbled and lost.

21:32 who asked me to be the intermediary between the profession stumble on intermediary

23:30 it is a wave that rolls incessantly over the London beach; You added a 'but' at the beginning of the phrase.

25:34.5 It is always what lies behind the scenes that will for ever you said It is always what lies behind the senses that will for ever

25:48 amusements of every descriptions, Stumble on amusements

25:55.5 but the wearied toilers have only the routine of an eventless existence; Eventless and existence are lost.

And the volume is 92.7 which is above LV standards. If you could cut it by about 3 dB it would be great.

You can cut half a second off of the end.

GJConover
Gary,

Here is Chapter 4:

2:55 Extra word 'for'

4:41 the most awful row in the house next to mine; should be pronounced to rhyme with 'how'.

4:54.5 Row again mispronounced.

6:03 and give a salutary example to the middle classes. Stumble on salutary

10:48 the word “in” is at the end of the phrase before this time and also at the beginning of the phrase following this time stamp

11:38 Stumble at "it was all well".

15:08-15:12.5 and go over the way to see there what sort of a farce was on the bills. Missed the word 'there'.

15:40 when doubled up on the back seat of a victoria. Added the word 'of' between back and seat

at about 18:19 that had put even Mrs Malaprop missed the work 'had

Also the volume is at 92.1 which is above LV standards. Can you drop it by about 3dB?

Thanks,

Wayne

Gary,

Very well done. You are getting better and better. This one also showed many, many fewer pauses in the narration. It flowed much better than your earlier ones.

The volume is still too loud. This one is at 92.3. Have you downloaded the Checker program? You can check your file's specs using it - see info at http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/Checker You will find the volume, background noise and other info with checker.

The only 'reading' error I found that was 'bad enough' to look at is:

6:16 An 's' sound before ought, like you were expecting 'should' When you do that, the easiest thing is to stop, repeat the phrase and then go on. Much easier than having to come back and fix.

Keep up the good work.

Rapunzelina,

Hurry back. :D

Very well done. I really enjoy listening to your readings.

There was one question I had though:
18:21 only a few lovely Louis XVI. tables remained in the room, I am not sure. It sounded like you said Louis VI (sixth). If you said XVI (sixteenth) you can leave it (of course).

Thank you Wayne, you're very encouraging :9:
I followed a forvo.com pronunciation for Louis XVI, which sounds like loui says. Probably Louis sixteenth was a talkative one :lol:

Yes, 'loui' is correct, and that is also the pronunciation of the coin of the time, the Louis.

I know sometimes I really have to think about it when using Roman Numerals, especially when I get past III. :lol:
