Such a fun twist!

A word change which doesn’t impact the meaning but I have noticed it twice now so I figured I should mention it. You switch county for country.

Chapter 19
16:03 optional – So with that he comes in, six foot two, if he’s an inch, and covered from head to foot in a shiny white mackintosh, with his head peeping out on top, and I’ve seen uglier men than him before this.
This sounds a little like a combination of hand and head

Chapter 20
11:19 optional - “I’m neither ghost nor thief, as Major O’Shaughnessy will testify when he arrives. I’m really exceedingly sorry to have made such an unfortunate impression, but I came on the most innocent errand. I am staying with Mr Trelawney, and your father was kind enough to offer to lend me a mount for to-morrow. We thought of going for a long ride in the morning, so—”
Read as Shaughnessy. It’s an established name so you might want to correct it.

Will make those changes, thanks.
Can you pinpoint the county/country switch? I would like to correct that too.

Sure, I can get them for you tomorrow. One of them in earlier in chapter 19 the other is chapter 17 or 18. I'll find them for you and let you know. I'm sorry I didn't mention them before I thought it was ok the way it was. I'll be tougher on you from now on. :wink:

Yes please do be tougher!
I want to improve.
I am realizing that I should give a final listen-through after editing and before posting.....(?)

Chapter 19
10:28 Let the girl have her way! she had been kept too long in seclusion as it was, and what was the use of possessing the most beautiful daughter in the county if you could not show her off to your friends once in a while?


I went back through again and the prior instance was correct. (gotta love word search) :D

As for another listen after editing, some do and others don't. You have so few mistakes I would have guessed that you already do.

I do. I usually have something playing in the background while I am doing something else (like checking forums right now), so I am only sort of paying attention and only really listening for stumbles and timing. I would never follow along with the text on my final listen through (unless it was poetry) and so I would never catch county/country.

I'm visiting my grandmother this week and PLing is a bit challenging. I'll get you caught up this weekend.

No problem! I have been very slow as well, with visiting family.
And aren't you lucky you have a grandmother......enjoy her.

Thank you! I am very fortunate. I have 2 grandmothers...both in their early 90s and doing really well. Best part is I got to spend time with both of them this Summer. :9:

Chapters 19 and 20 are both spot check PL OK

One small thing on chapter 21.
13:28 Joan and I went to stay ten days with some friends at the other side of the county, nearly a year ago last autumn, and he was staying there too.
Read as ten days ago which is a little confusing given the remainder of the sentence.

22 is PL OK with the exception of the volume. This file is at 94dB.
