Limanora, The Island Of Progress by Godfrey Sweven (1845 - 1935).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/limanora-the-island-of-progress-by-godfrey-sweven/
Our ethereal man with wings, whom we met in Riallaro, continues his tale about Limanora which is a Utopian Island created as an experiment in Eugenics. Medical and technological advances have led to a central Power Source, computers, and weather control to name a few. ( kirkz202)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/limanoraislandp00browgoog/page/n8
  • 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!

MW coming up.

edit: Let me know if any changes are needed. I made some slight changes to your first post. Especially note the shorter audio file names. From the number of sections requested I gather you are planning to read both "books." Now I will have to listen to the earlier novel you just finished.

I've had to look up several words. Some parts of these books just don't make much sense, but at least the general sense of what the author is talking about comes across. :D

Section 5 & 6 are ready for PL.
