Re: SOLO - The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (version 3) - dc

Section 53 is ready for PL.

There was one small correction necessary. At 4:37, the Gutenberg text reads, "Have you walked in!" It should be, "How you walked in!"

Section 52 is ready for PL.

Incidentally, here's a little pedantic fussiness:
Around 14:15, the text introduces a Polish word, but the Gutenberg text records it as "lajdak." Actually, it should be "łajdak" [= "scoundrel," pronounced WY-dock].

I see that, by section count, we've just passed the half-way mark.
And section 50 is ready for PL.

And now the narrative switches to Dmitri's storyline, which makes for a different tone.
Section 46 is ready for PL.

Section 45 is ready for PL — a beautifully written chapter, I think.
It's certainly the most "mystical" of all the chapters in the book, and it verges on poetry.

Section 44 is ready for PL.

I made one tiny correction to the text. At 39:53, the Project Gutenberg version reads, "she shook him by the hand." It should be, "she took him by the hand." (I confirmed this by checking the photo-scanned version at archive.org.)

Section 40 is ready for PL.

I always thought of the “Grand Inquisitor” as the longest chapter in the book, but this one caught me by surprise: it’s just as long. (At least, in the recorded version. I was probably reading more slowly, because of the subject matter.)
