Mysteries of Paris Volume 6 by Eugène Sue (1804 - 1857).
Rodolphe, who is really the Grand Duke of Gerolstein (a fictional kingdom of Germany) but is disguised as a Parisian worker. He can speak in argot, is extremely strong and a good fighter. However he shows great compassion for the lower classes, good judgment, and has a brilliant mind. He is at ease in all layers of society and so is able to understand their problems, and how the different social classes are linked. ( wikipedia)

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/mysteries-of-paris-vol-6-by-eugene-sue/

  1. Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/33805
  2. Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    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!

Hi Jim!
Thank you for checking the files so quickly...AGAIN.:)
Just letting you know that I've uploaded a few more and should be finished checking the rest tomorrow.
I hate to say that I am a little disappointed in the ending but will say no more. You can judge for yourself soon. :):)
Have a great week!!

All done!!!!!

I noticed that for some idiotic reason that escapes me I often leave 5 seconds instead of .5 at the end of recordings. You've probably had to edit some out. So sorry! In any event I've double checked the ones you haven't PL'd yet and re-uploaded the ones needing corrections.

Thanks again for all your hard work Jim.:):)

Huh? I'm confused. It's 1/2 to 1 second at the beginning of the recording and 5 seconds at the end.

OMG I must be losing it. Somehow when I read the notes again today I decided it was supposed to be .5 at the end. So....I will redo and re-upload files 12-20 again tomorrow probably. :):)

I'll post a note to let you know when it's done Jim so please wait to check them.

Thanks for letting me know Mary Ann!!! I should stop overthinking things!!!!! :):):)

Funny thing. I read your note, but did not understand. So when I completed 12 and noticed that the end lacked the 5 seconds, I entered the See Notes message. And then I saw the 12 above in your statement and understood. So I am awaiting your re-submissions. But I don't suppose it will hurt anything for me to proceed listening and to check the ends later.

I'm so sorry for the confusion Jim. I was going back and forth on different projects and had this little monent of panic that I had missed something...and hence the resulting fiasco teehee.

No reason you can't listen to them and spot PL later. Thank you.

It is not a major flaw, given your long-sustained perfection, but I must mention any repeat, which appears to occur at about 23:24 in this section: "The princess Amelie was dressed in a plain white watered silk dress and wore and wore like the Archduchess. . . ."

LOL!! No need to sugarcoat calling me on any mistakes. I make a lot but try to fix them before I upload. I appreciate that you can find the ones I miss!!!

I'll take care of this tomorrow and re-upload.

Thanks again for all your hard work and dedication. :)
