Chapter 21 is up.

I have no idea what this one was good for :?:
Nothing we don't know yet, and the one thing that was important could have been handled in a single paragraph...

The first book by him was a great yarn, this one is a great yawn at times. Not to speak of the preach factor. :roll:
This would have needed serious editing...
Cheers,
Ava.

3 more chapters added!

The next one is the longest one left - and it's super preachy too. :? :?
Cheers,
Ava.

Hmmm.. that was actually less preachy than I thought at first. :thumbs:

A couple more chapters added - only 10 left to go.

I have to speed up a little here since the cicadas have woken up... :shock:
Once they begin to sing in the night too, there's no more recording until autumn.
Cheers,
Ava.

Sorry for the delay; coronavirus has been making things pretty hectic on my end. I should be able to finish PL-ing what you've recorded by this time next week.

Chapter 21: OK

Chapter 22:
- (7:39) Said "Isanagi's going first" instead of "Isagani's going first"

Chapter 23: OK

Chapter 24: OK

Thanks for your patience!

It's fine, don't worry. The "deadline" is towards the end of August, so we're still perfectly okay.

3 more chapters uploaded, and I hope to finish recording the rest in the next few days.
It's getting less preachy now, so it's less of a drag to read, thankfully.
Cheers,
Ava.

Phew. I've uploaded the last four chapters - I'm done here. :clap:
Now I have to come up with a better summary and a nice cover, so there's no rush with the PLing. :D

I expected this to be better, since I really enjoyed the first book in the series. But this one was so preachy at times, it was bad... I guess he had made his name with the first book already, there was not much point in writing a good story anymore?
Cheers,
Ava.

Nice job! :thumbs:Looks like I have my work cut out for me though :cry:

Chapter 25: OK

Chapter 26: OK

Chapter 27: OK

Chapter 28: OK

Chapter 29:
- (1:05) Said "executor" (as in someone who executes, with emphasis on the first "e") instead of "executor" (someone who carries out a will, with emphasis on the second "e")

Chapter 30: OK (I think this was probably one of the best chapters of the book — it was beautifully written)

Thank you!
I agree with you on the Juli chapter - that one could have come right out of the first book!

As for this one:

I will change it (because those things annoy me) but please give a bit more context so I can search directly in the text without listening to the recording. Executor is only used twice in the whole book, so it's easy to find, but other words may not be. Thanks. :thumbs:
Cheers,
Ava.

Sorry about that! :oops:

Chapter 31:
- (7:36) Said "what have I do Avith the country" instead of "what have I to do Avith the country" (I'm not sure if this one really matters, but I figured I'd mark it down)

Chapter 32: OK

Chapter 33: OK

Chapter 34: OK

The story's actually getting pretty interesting — he's managed to create some very dramatic scenes (especially with such dear characters). The suspense is palpable!

I agree, it's getting much better at the end!

He could have gotten there much faster... :twisted:
