and chapter 15 is PL ok. You have a good streak here right now 8-) I always like when Vulsame shows up and gets abused for his troubles LOL (I know, I'm mean :twisted: )

Countdown, only 3 sections left. They will probably be spent in the countryside. I really wonder what the ending twist will be. Myas dead and Alice alive ? Both dead ? Or Myas staying in Alice's body ? :hmm:

And the countdown continues. The final one will be a lengthy one though.

Chapter 16 has been posted, ready for PL at your leisure.

Thanks! :D

:shock: what a cliffhanger again ! What disaster happened now on the railway ? ! What had happened to Myas-Lade on there ? Because I'm sure he is involved. And all this saved for the final chapter of the book. I'm hooked.

and now to my one PL note:

> at 0:47: (p. 200) "and was of a reddish-brown colour" - now this little blooper made my day. You gave me a mighty good chuckle here when you said: "red dish". I thought, "yes this is Roger back to being hungry and thinking about food." :mrgreen:
I agree, it was probably unfortunate to break the word into two syllables at the end of the line, but I still think that in our case, "reddish-brown hair" makes more sense than "red dish-brown". :hmm:

My favourite PL note for this project :9:

:oops: How embarrassing.
And how did I miss that during editing? Oh well, at least we both got a good laugh about it. What is it about food that I keep doing silly things like this? :lol:

Thanks, and chapter 16 has been re-uploaded, ready for a spot check.

A fairly short chapter 17 has now been posted.
Hopefully, no food items that don't belong. :lol:

Thanks! :D

no food bloopers ;) and all perfectly PL ok this time. But what an anti- climax :evil: So the author simply evades the difficult intrigue in the end by prosaically killing Myas in a train accident ? What a let-down. Well there is still a Post-script, so I'm in hopes he will have some final highlights in store after all.

Looking forward to the rest. At this rate, I guess by next weekend this project will be finished :9:

Whew! :mrgreen:

The final section has at last been completed. I found it quite interesting.

Section 18, uploaded and posted. And a special thanks for the help with the Latin bit.
Enjoy! :D

:shock: 46 minutes !!! What happened there ?

Ok, I'm about to go to bed now (midnight here), but will tackle this in the morning. Before you wake up, you'll have my comments :D

good night for now

wow, a spooky ending. The parts with the voice on the telephone and the ghosts in the garden really gave me the shivers. I'm glad I didn't listen to this last night before going to bed. :? I have quite a vivid imagination and saw all these scenes like in a movie.

So, we will never know what really happened, but the conclusion is not unsatisfactory. I like the ending.

(oh and Vulsame in his Saul-to-Paul conversion remains just as annoying as before. Typical for him he would become a religious zealot now. Such people never change :roll: )

Well read once again :thumbs: (nice job on the Latin too :) )

I have 4 notes this time though (well, it was 4 times longer, so this is the usual norm LOL)

> at 16:54: (p. 230) “That is, I suppose, the regulation thing, the accepted theory” – you say “regular thing”. I must admit, I’m not entirely sure whether there is a significant difference in these two meanings in this case, so I leave it up to you whether you want to change it or not. :hmm:

> at 17:42: (p. 231) “No, my dear fellow, but unconscious memory does.” - you say “conscious” but here, the author definitely means the opposite. Especially because he mentions it again in the next sentences

> at 29:02: (p. 241) “So as my man was putting out my clothes next morning” – this is not very clear and I hear more “putting on my clothes”, which makes it quite funny. :lol: I listened to it a few times, also louder, and probably you said “out”, but I really don’t hear it clearly and my ears pick up “on” more readily.

> at 41:10: (p. 252) “but he wore that flowing necktie” – you say “flowering”, which is a bit odd for a tie :mrgreen:

and that's it. Only a few corrections away from archiving this great book. :9:

Thanks for the quick turnaround.
Of the four recommendations, I have fixed three of them.
When I listened to (29:02) "So as my man was putting out my clothes...", it sounded OK to me, so I left it alone.
The other three have been patched, and the file has been re-uploaded, ready for a spot PL.

I enjoyed this story. Excellent recommendation! Vulsame's character was a bit peculiar but well drawn out by the author, and I like your analogy of his "Saul-to-Paul" conversion. :lol: Perfect!

Thanks again so much! I'll check back in later (not receiving e-mails yet) and make sure the patches are satisfactory.
If they are, then Bev can take over and do her magic. :clap:

This project can get archived. Excellent addition to our collection. :9:

Completion noted. I will hopefully catalogue in the next couple of days. If it gets to a week and it's not done yell at me!

:shock: Bev, I would never yell at you! :shock:
I might just send a friendly nudge via PM or this thread though. (Hopefully the e-mail function will be working by then....)

Seriously, whenever you get to it is fine with me.

:lol: Ok, nudge me!

I don't subscribe to threads anymore. I found it a nuisance if I happened to read a thread when not logged in, and then new posts were made I wouldn't get a notification because the software, of course, didn't know I'd read the last one. I just use the forum bookmarks now. I check my bookmark list each time I log in and click on the orange icons.
