Good job on your first submission! I do have a few notes for corrections to be made.

*Beginning silence should be a little longer so that the first words don't get chopped off by any player. Most people have it somewhere between .5 - 1 second. (Just not over 1 sec)
~9:03 stumble followed by correction "The young woman shrieked"
~9:43 repeat: "The great silence"
*End silence is around 2.8 seconds and should be ~5 sec.
*Volume is in range, but just barely (currently at 86.1 dB). It wouldn't hurt to amplify about 3 dB.

Again, I think it's sounding pretty good overall! :)

Thanks,
~Rosebud

Section 4 PL notes:
~1:30-33 longish pause
~3:25-29 longish pause
*Missed 'end of section... ' disclaimer

Quite the story, isn't it?! :)

Thanks,

Everything sounds great, but that bitrate pulled another prank on you! :wink: Hopefully this time it'll let you fix it first try!

Thanks for another enjoyable listen!

Thanks for the great feedback. Can't believe I missed editing out the stumble!

Have made the corrections and boosted the volume a little, it's now at 88.4 dB :)
