The Idiot (Part 03 and 04) by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821 - 1881) . Translated by Eva M. Martin (1883 - ?).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-idiot-part-03-and-04-by-fyodor-dostoyevsky/

The extraordinary child-adult Prince Myshkin, confined for several years in a Swiss sanatorium suffering from severe epilepsy, returns to Russia to claim his inheritance and to find a place in healthy human society. The teeming St Petersburg community he enters is far from receptive to an innocent like himself, despite some early successes and relentless pursuit by grotesque fortune-hunters. His naive gaucheries give rise to extreme reactions among his new acquaintance, ranging from anguished protectiveness to mockery and contempt. But even before reaching the city, during the memorable train journey that opens the novel, he has encountered the demonic Rogozhin, the son of a wealthy merchant – who is in thrall to the equally doomed Nastasia Filippovna: beautiful, capricious and destructively neurotic, she joins with the two weirdly contrasted men in a spiraling dance of death… (Summary by Martin Geeson)
  • Target completion date: 2013-Dec-01

    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!

I feel like I owe someone a huge apology for my long absence. Are you still there, Barry? I hope you haven't given up on me yet. And if you haven't, well bless you, man.

Here are sections 29 – Part III, Chapter 1 (35:38)
http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/kd/theidiot_29_dostoevsky.mp3

and 30 – Part III, Chapter 2 (30:02)
http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/kd/theidiot_30_dostoevsky.mp3

On Tagging:
I followed tradition with the last section from <a href="http://librivox.org/the-idiot-by-fyodor-dostoyevsky-part-01-and-02-translated-by-eva-m-martin/">Part 2</a>. The last section of Part 2 was tagged "28 – Part II, Chapter 12", and I thought that it would make sense that my first section would be tagged "29 – Part III, Chapter 1" and the next ones following suit - if that's alright.

Hi Alia,

I had not given up on you yet but just this morning was thinking about checking up on you.

I think we should start the first chapter with 01 instead of the 29. Those particular numbers are really related to the particular project, not the book(s) per say. So this would be section 01 of this project but Part 3, Chapter 1 of the entire series. That make sense?

Roger that. I'll retag and reupload the first two files then, yes?

You don't need to re-upload just for that; I can fix those when I catalog the project. If there is something you need to re-upload for after they are PLed, you can fix it then. :)

Thank you, Mr. Zeile.
Yes, your encouragements would help a girl gather her mind long enough to get this job done. A lot.

Sincerely,
Alia

Please note that I have changed the first post to show that we are now using the new uploader and that it has a different password than the old one. Also note that we should start adding _128kb to the end of the file names when you save them; if you forget, don't worry about it as I can easily fix them at cataloging time.
