Beyond These Voices by Mary Elizabeth Braddon (1835 - 1915).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/beyond-these-voices-by-mary-elizabeth-braddon/



This novel tells the fictional life story of Veera Davis. The daughter of a poet and a poor noble woman, who is left in the care of her grandmother to a lonely and monotonous childhood, she has to make her way up in the world. But everything has a price. She trys to follow the convenshens of the soiciety wich shunned her when she was poor. The novel explores theems such as love, money and loss. Don't worry, there is also a good murder mystery. ( Stav Nisser.)
  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
  4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://gutenberg.org/ebooks/54247
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

I would be happy to DPL.

I have listened to one of Mary Braddon's books before and really enjoyed it, so I think it must be time to try another!

I will fill in the titles, but not wordcounts or page numbers because the text is not accessible enough for that.

Hi Mary Anne,
Tifany did the wordcounts. There are 4 chapters which needed to be divided. Could you please add 4 sections to the mw? Thanks in advance,
Stav.
