Here's my reading of the last chapter of sketch of the mosquito shore:

(there are 3 or so 15 second sections where the audio is iffy that I can't fix unless I rerecord everything, seeing as how it took me long enough, I will submit it as is for now).

I'll check it out hopefully its not too bad! :)

Just to clarify, you do know you can cut/paste small sections of audio right? I make a gazillion mistakes everytime I read, if it wasn't for the ability to do small re-recordings, I'd never get any passage right! :P

In finally got this prooflistened! Overall, you got the text pretty right (not going to ding anyone on some of those a hard obscure Spanish words), but there were a few technical issues where you mic cut out/had its sound get corrupted. Mostly the odd mic tap didn't take away from the flow but the following sections could use retakes when the audio gets corrupted for brief periods.

1:50- 1:59
6:00- 6:12
7:08-7:12
8:25-8:30
9:17-9:20
12:15-12:30
14:50-15:05
15:26- 15:35
16: 45- 16:55
17:30- 17:35
23:50-23:55
25:05-25:30

Also for the for the intro / outro could you call the piece "Excerpt from Sketch of the Mosquito Shore" , as it's not the whole book you're reading, just a chapter! ;)

By the way, I'm so happy to see this story get realized in audio! The evil con man's pitch sounds remarkably familar to so many modern internet scam's; it's a fascinating but really tragic story of all the poor settlers who invested their life savings buying land in this fake country...
