Thanks! yeah! it was so long, i felt i was loosing the energy as i went through, but i wanted to do it in one go.
I wanted at least a bit of feedback please, a couple of comments/suggestions after listening the chapter at least for a couple of minutes.
Then very probably i'll record more, i enjoy the book, it's interesting.

Chapter 9 is PL OK! Well done!

As for feedback, I could tell that you are not a native English speaker, but I could understand you alright, if that's what you are worried about! In such a long text with difficult words, which I think even native speakers could have mispronounced, you did a great job with very few mispronunciations! I liked your reading pace! It was easy to follow, even when using a different intonation (for example, not pausing at a comma, or pausing without a comma). All in all, a good result! :thumbs: Probably, for a perfect result, you would pre-read the text to find how to pronounce any unknown words, or to practice the correct intonation for a sentence; but you don't have to be a perfectionist!
The key is to have fun, which I think you did :D Your reading was calming, and I enjoyed your character voices! :clap:
Please read more! I believe the more you record, the more confident you'll feel in front of the microphone, which will make it even more fun :mrgreen:

Hi
I've claimed sections 1 through 6 and I totally intend to submit them hopefully by the next week's end. I'm so sorry for causing the delay I've been volunteering a lot these past few weeks and that with school made it pretty tough to record or edit my audios. I am really sorry.
Thanks
-SS
