"there is no Evil under the Sun, but some Good proceeds from it:" -- this quote from this novel sums it up.
"The author does not attempt any historical accuracy, and some of the problems Zadig faces are thinly disguised references to social and political problems of Voltaire's own day...Zadig is one of Voltaire's most celebrated works" -- from Wikipedia
We continue to make tough decisions about how to respond to betrayal, injustice and bigotry. ***summary to be completed later*** (various)
- Text source (only read from this text!): http://gutenberg.org/ebooks/18972
- Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard and I welcome any suggestions
IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!
