Hello Sonia,
Here is section 73
oh this was a cool story. I heard about the berserkers before (going berserk is still a notion nowadays), but didn't really know how it all came about. Interesting section. And perfectly PL ok. Thank you so much, April !

Sonia
I agree, it was a cool story. Beserk now are we? lol

How extraordinary! I didn't know anything about portages! This is a time when it is appropriate to say "it blows my mind!" :shock: :clap:

Nemo, Eva, these are both great. :clap: Thank you so much. Nemo, your Hamlet sounds quite wonderingly astonished for most of the excerpt but in the end quite resolved to have his way. A very young boyish touch, nicely done. Eva, your Horatio sounds more mature, he is probably the elder confidant of Hamlet, he is dutiful and courageous, all this very well put into your voice as well. A nice contrast between impetuous Hamlet and rational Horatio.

Both PL ok.

I have finished up the narration already some time ago, so we only need Marcellus. I hope Tomas can find the time one of these days in between his movie-binging :lol: But I can probably already assemble all your other parts already.

Thanks !

Sonia

brrr, yes, this is one boat trip I would not have been eager to join. A bit different from our pleasure cruises nowadays :lol: But the men who try to sail these unknown waters are really courageous.

Excellent reading again, Kristine, thank you so much. I only have two small cuts to suggest, for the rest, the text was word-perfect. :thumbs:

> at 0:00-0:04: the silence at the beginning seemed very long to me, I already thought there was no audio at all coming

> at 3:00: just before "but it was always pleasant" I hear a loud bump, which I think can easily be cut out without re-recording

thanks

Sonia

I'm not so sure that I would refuse to join some such voyage... well, maybe not THAT extreme.

Thank you for the notes, here is the corrected version, now 17:01

Here is one more Sonia,
thank you, April, excellent job again and totally PL ok :) I did not climb on mount Hekla, but spent a night in a tourist resort on the foot of the mountain, it was impressive enough to think that this volcano could break out at any point. :| And yes, I saw some icy/snowy patches that were black instead of white, like it's mentioned in the text.

Interesting section !

ah the thump is gone :) I think I would even have cut out the scratch right after the thump, but it's much better like this already, nothing that makes me jump suddenly :mrgreen: thank you, Kristine, it's PL ok now :)
