Excellent! You're in the MW, Dawn. As you see, I forgot to move this to 'on hold' anyway :roll:. Let's stay here, eh, if you're still on track to get something up by next week?

Hi

At last, the opening section :) -

http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/rd/hadrianthe7th_01_rolfe.mp3
Duration - 18:18

(The little shuffling/breathing sounds, separating the lengthy passages read from newspapers by the hero, are my deliberate atmospherics.)

Hope it's not too drab...

Oh, the ball is rolling. Section 1 is PL OK. Martin, the page turns, sighs etc... are brilliant. Not at all "drab."

Hi

Another section - largely an inventory of the hero's attic, but with a bit of soliloquy too:

Section 4 is PL OK. You read very much like an actor on the stage. Awesome work!

Hi

Here is Section 05. The hero is such a self-dramatist that you can't read him without turning into him, I find.

Section 5 is PL OK. He does make everything an earth shattering event.

Hi

Another jolly segment (06). It's very hard work trying to convey someone else's paranoia - you have to listen so strenuously to every word as you speak it.
