[English: Short stories] The Works of Guy de Maupassant, Volume III (of 8), The Viaticum and Other Stories by Henri René Albert Guy de Maupassant (1850 - 1893).

Quote:
De Maupassant's stories are characterized by economy of style and efficient, effortless dénouements. Many are set during the Franco-Prussian War of the 1870s, describing the futility of war and the innocent civilians who, caught up in events beyond their control, are permanently changed by their experiences. He wrote some 300 short stories, six novels, three travel books and one volume of verse. This volume, published in 1909, is a collection of 50 of de Maupassant's short stories. (Wikipedia)

This project is looking for prooflisteners. A DPL (Dedicated Proof Listener) would be preferred, but until one is found, we need prooflistening for completed sections.

Project thread: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=67415
Please post in the project thread if you can help with proof-listening.

Level of PL: Standard
  • Does the intro match the one specified in the first post of the project thread (below the Magic Window)? 

  • Are there any long silences or pauses that ought to be edited out? If so, note the time. 

  • Are there any stumbles or repeats that ought to be edited out? If so, note the words and the time. 

  • Is there excessive background noise, a constant hiss or buzz that detracts from the reading? 

  • Did you need to turn your volume up unusually high to listen to the recording? (Or did you find the recording too loud?) 

  • Does the ending match the one specified in the first post of the project thread?
  • Are there 5 seconds of silence at the end of the file?

 

New to prooflistening? Please read this FAQ.
