The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896 - 1940).

This project is complete! All audio files are available on our catalog page:
https://librivox.org/the-beautiful-and-damned-by-f-scott-fitzgerald-2/


This 1922 novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald chronicles the life of Anthony Patch, the only heir of millionaire Adam Patch, his grandfather. Anthony is young, handsome and well-educated. He marries the ravishingly beautiful Gloria, and together they plan for the day that Anthony receives his inheritance. But what will they make of themselves in the meantime as they look forward to a life of wealth and idle leisure? What is the role of purpose in a well-lived life? Fitzgerald explores these questions in a book that is at the same time humorous, sad and tragic. (Mark Nelson)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/9830
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    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!

    • If you wish, say:
      "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"

Sec 2 PL OK :thumbs:
Sec 3 9:25 and 10:40 Talleyrand. The character would know to keep the ultimate "d" silent [tal(ɛ)ʁɑ̃] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Maurice_de_Talleyrand-P%C3%A9rigord). You could erase the "d" if you wish to preserve the flavour. Of course, I wouldn't do this kind of perfectionist nit-picking if you weren't doing such a marvellous job... Let me know if I am going over the board.
