This project is complete. All files are available for download from the catalog page here: http://librivox.org/invisible-man-by-h-g-wells/


This is what I intend to do next, The Invisible Man (http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/5230), by H G Wells.

However, I do intend to finish all the other various chapters I've promised other books first, so this may not get completed until January 06.

EDIT: Jan 06 hopelessly ambitious, watch this space.

Alex

I remember reading this just at that age in life when I was just barely starting to see things from other people's point of views ... and what an impression it made on me, that all would not be as I imagined it from my point of view! Looking forward to you completing this one : )

Wow, I'm so stoked that you're considering the reading of H.G. Wells. His stories are so good because he takes the time to explain the logic and workings behind the concepts in his books. I've considered reading them myself but alas I will need more practice reading aloud. I have attempted it and it is more difficult that I thought it would be. Keeping the pacing and diction correct without misreading or pausing takes some talent.

Would you consider "The First Men in the Moon" by H.G. Wells? It is by far my favorite story by this author. Please!

My wife is quite good at reading aloud. I think I'll see if she'll tackle a book for the fun of it.

Alex, how's this reading going for you? ... No rush. This is just a friendly check-in =)

Still intending to do it -- not much idea when, however!

I remember reading First Men too, and loved it.

If your wife isn't up for it, I think I might tackle that as my first solo project. Let me know... I have a few recordings to get done before then, so I'm not going to start a thread on it until I'm ready to start.

I have now started this, and recorded three segments, up to Chapter 8.

I don't have the space to host these anywhere public, but I would like to make them available for people to hear as a good way of checking for mistakes, etc, getting feedback.

Is there a free host for such things anyone can recommend? We don't really upload to LV until the project is complete...

Hey Alex! Glad you're back! =)

How about sending the files to yourself via YouSendIt, then posting the links here. I'll then download them and put them on my server until we're ready to fully catalog the project... the files would all then be availble at: http://betsie.info/librivox/invisible_man

Are you sure you have the space/bandwidth ?

Maybe I should stop looking for somewhere free and just pay my host another few quid for an extra 800MB of space...

Alex, PM or E-mail me and I'll give you the login information for some space I've set aside for Librivoxers. That is, if you're familiar with FTP. If you're keen on learning I can help you out :)

I'm FTPing as we speak :)

I convinced myself during this discussion that I needed more space, and I've set that in motion, so I'm sorted for now, thanks. But it's good to hear that there are alternatives available for people who need it.

Cheers,

Alex
