Hi! i did section 20:

https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/forgodandgold_20_corbett_128kb.mp3
duration: 49:38

Any honest thoughts about what to keep improving and what is ok would be very appreciated :D
Awesome! The reading is much more flowing than last time - I think that there's room for more improvement, and that the more you read, the more your tongue will get used to pronouncing those tricky English words :mrgreen:
Yet you excellently managed to convey the feeling in those dramatic speeches at the end of the chapter!!
I really like the sound quality, it's crystal clear, so I can enjoy the fullness of your voice! I also like your reading speed; it's perfect for those - like me - that might need a little time to get used to an exotic accent :D
All in all, just one PL note, there's some text missing around 36:45 in the recording, here in bold:
It was the second afternoon after Frank's departure that we were returning to our fort with a load of planks, when we descried a deep-laden frigate making for Nombre de Dios.
'Will you not attempt her, Captain John?'
Thanks so much for the feedback, i just fixed it:

Section 20 is spot-checked and PL OK!

In section 21, around 15:37, it sounds to me like there's a skip in the recording. Would you check your copy, Ares, and see if it sounds ok or not? Text should be "he took so strong a dose of his own compounding that he never spake again". If it sounds OK in your copy, it might have been an uploading glitch, in which case, would you upload again, please? Thank you!
