The Markets of Paris by Emile Zola (1840 - 1902).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page here:

https://librivox.org/the-markets-of-paris-by-emile-zola/

The Markets of Paris is a remarkable work, and is the one which Zola calls his very best novel, and of which he is far more proud than of any others in his Rougon-Marquart series – prouder than of L’Assommoir. It must have been in his early manhood, when poor and friendless, he lived among the people, that much of the information which makes these pages so startlingly vivid, was acquired. How many mornings, long before dawn, must he have visited these markets – how many hours and days must he have spent there, to have mastered the habits, manners and ways of these people, who are a class by themselves, and of whom we do not lose sight, from the beginning to the end of the book. He introduces us to the Parisian charcutier – the cook shop – and in La Belle Lina, the mistress of the establishment, we find the sister of Gervaise, the woman who stirred the depths of our hearts with pity, in L’Assommoir. In truth The Markets of Paris stands as utterly alone in modern French literature, as it is distinct and apart, from any other work even by Zola himself. It is a book for all to read.

    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!

MW is ready to go. You didn't fill in the number of sections so I've started you off with 12. Sections can be added or deleted as needed once you decide how many you will actually need.

Happy Holidays to you too, Celine. I'll leave this thread here in the LaunchPad for a day or two and hopefully pick up a DPL before moving it to Going Solo.

I'd be interested to DPL this, and a start in 3 weeks is ideal for me!

Hello again. Just a heads up that I have uploaded a few more. :-)
I'll be happy to make any corrections...pickups that are needed of course.
Thank you.

I'll probably take a little break now. :)

Section 1 is PL OK!

Great story so far - I like Zola and his characters. Very smoothly read also, and I love your French accent! Are you Canadian? (I have a French speaking Canadian cousin whose voice sounds a little like yours.)

Just to check - is Section 8 ready for PL or not? It says it is, but there's no link in the MW...
