wow, just listened to both acts during the last hour. :9: Great job from all of us and great assembling. It may not be a comedy but it certainly is entertaining to listen to and it has its funny moments too.

Definitely PL ok, both acts. :thumbs: Now looking forward to the rest. With a bit of luck we can finish it before the year runs out.

Thank you, Todd, wonderful job again

Glad you like it.

If you want to listen out of sequence (ignoring the fact that having dPL'd every part, you've already been from end to end 194 times!) Act 4 is ready for final PL.

Thanks, Todd

:lol: now where did you get this number from ? it surely wasn't as often as that.

And no, I don't mind listening out of sequence. In fact, having this very tearful ending first and then the more light-hearted 3rd act as final listen is probably best. It was all very emotional in the end. :? Everybody played their part so excellently, which shows me we are just as good at tragedy than at comedy.

And the final author's note is really well placed there at the end. We definitely shouldn't leave that one out. :thumbs:

Act 4 PL ok.

Thank you for the massive editing job you did today !

Working to finish Kathie right now. I've lost my voice completely (it's just air coming out... :shock: ) - so I sure hope I didn't make any mistakes.

Thanks, Todd! The voice is not back yet, but as far as I can see there is only a slight deviation from the text when I say "it does seem SO funny" instead of "it does seem funny" at about 1:30. I don't think it should be a problem. Just a little extra emphasis on how funny it seems that someone should ever have been in love with my father... :lol:

PL ok and that means, Todd can get going with the final act :9: what a nice new year's present.

8-) wow now this is really a cool central act. And if I may say so myself, I extremely liked the chemistry and dynamics in Galahad and Em's dialogues. :9: Him more soft-spoken and her quite a hurricane. Mainly also because you are pacing it all so well, often faster-paced to give the needed impetus, sometimes holding back to show pregnant pauses. :thumbs:

But everybody was great in their respective dialogues with Galahad. Kathy so refreshingly cheerful, the butcher rough but helpful and Mr Beach quite crestfallen and broken. All very strong scenes. Not to forget the excellent stage directions by Michael.

Now unfortunately you missed one of Em's speeches and the lines are needed to make sense of what Galahad replies:

> at 32:55: (p. 80) missed Em. lines: "What's that matter"... etc. they are in my file from 11:09-11:17

the rest: perfect ! I'll be on the lookout to spot PL before I go to bed.

Thank you

Sonia

Cataloging now.

By the way, it turns out this is the 100th item I have cataloged as an MC. And, by coincidence, Sonia has also just cataloged her 100th. (No overlap since though we work together quite a lot, there is only one MC for a project.)

So all those celebrations you saw or heard last night? - they were for Librivox!

Thanks, Todd
