Just to let you know, I'm currently trying to recover my health a bit, so it may be a little while before I get any more chapters sent in. We'll see.
No stress :thumbs:

Chapter 4 is PL OK with the exception of the missing line

Chapter 8-25 that was done are PL OK

Chapter 14-15 has to be edited again, as both were different Abbe's, neither who finished all the chapters:P

The accent ... does sound Italian for the most part, though it sometimes slides into Russian-ish accent.
No wonder. My natural accent IS Russian, and would remain whatever I try :-)
Also, be aware that you have a massive chapter coming along, ... when we do accents over longer stretches, they tend to slip a little.
Thank you, Kristin. I did it differently, I did not torture myself for the long run, and you would be tortured enough with my natural accent, only exaggerated occasionally.

A little glitch -- the Pastrini lines for chapter 34 took a wrong spot #33. I am posting them again so they could find their rightful spot. :-)

Now I am in trouble with the long story, ch.33. The uploader has no patience for an almost half-a-Gig 72-min section and generates an undefined error. I'll try again later, but I'd appreciate if you have any suggestions. Maybe I should cut it in pieces? Thanks!

Signor Pastrini, ch.33 uploaded as 128 kb mp3, flac wouldn't upload, even at reduced quality :(

Magistrate 2[/b] - You have read the part of Notary 2, which is allready read by someone else, and haven't read the lines of the Magistrate at the end of the chapter.

Oops. Sorry about that. Here's the correct lines: https://librivox.org/uploads/maryannspiegel/montecristo_magistrate2_96.flac
length 0:31.

Oh, obs, that was just a lucky guess :lol:

I didn't mind your accent, so it's up to you how you do it. Thanks!
My best suggestion is either make it mp3 or cut it in two

Kristin,
I looks likely that chapter 33 will need to be split. There is no narrator yet for that chapter. Do you want to split it now or leave a note for the narrator to record and extra intro/ending in case I need it for editing?

I've added a note, there are so many parts in that chapter that splitting it up now would be a massive headache. Do we need a complete intro for the part two chapter? (Kinda starting to wish I went for the shorter intro for this project:P)
