Enjoy :)
Julie.
PL OK :thumbs: Nice reading of a nice story . On the technical side its only got 5 secs silence at end - we ask for 10 on things over 30 mins - which this just is and it does get a little quiet at the end - the dramatic effect is great but too loud or too soft can cause problems - its OK in this one though . I loved your voice and the passion you had for the story

Anne :)

There is no human problem which could not be solved if people would simply do as I advise.

Thanks for the feedback, Anne :).
I added five seconds at the end, it should be fine now.

Julie.
Constructive criticism is greatly appreciated!

Mr. Wooster, how would you support a wife? Well, I suppose it depends on whose wife it was, a little gentle pressure beneath the elbow while crossing a busy street usually fits the bill. (P.G. Wodehouse)

The Devil and Tom Walker

I`ve just heard a little word change in my reading.. :oops:
original text :
...... stalked about a field, where
a thin carpet of moss, scarcely covering the ragged beds of
pudding-stone, tantalized and balked his hunger; and sometimes he
would lean his head over the fence, look piteously at the passer-by,
and seem to petition deliverance from this land of famine.

I said "humour" ... In my opinion I don`t think that is a problem...
Just thought I´d let ya know :D I hope you agree

I agree, Joseph. That falls well within our goal of 99% accuracy, and is no worse than a typo at Gutenberg. And who knows, perhaps it was originally "humour" anyway ... :D

You have made life difficult :roll: - I haven't listened yet , normally what I do for standard proof listening is to listen and as long as it makes sense I don't check the text - if it doesn't make sense I listen again then look up the text . But now I know it doesn't make sense its going to be hard to miss :) puddings and famine = hunger .
But in the end its you who has to decide and maybe I wont be able to hear the difference

:oops: Didn't realise Anna had already answered - wrote this and was called away before I posted it - Sorry must check next time
