Freaks on the Fells: Three Months' Rustication by R. M. Ballantyne (1825 - 1894).

This DR was abandoned. Please help finish it up. :9:
Join us in a journey of two young lads who decide to run away and go to sea. They experience many adventures and suffer hardships along the way to their ultimate discovery. (Linny)
    1. Is there a deadline?
      We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 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.
    2. 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.
    3. New to recording?
      Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text: http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/23505 Please only read from from the Google.docs.
    5. Please claim roles (the numbers in the first column below)! Please note: All Librivox recordings are in the public domain. When you submit your recording, you will be placing your recording in the public domain as well.
      All roles are gender neutral!

      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.



      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!

Section 1 PL note:
8:17 a line is misplaced. Should be:
“Good-night, Jack, I will!”
End of Story 2, chapter 1
Story 2, chapter 2

Ready for spot check: https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/freaksonthefells_2_1_ballantyne.mp3

Volume on section 2 was higher than 92dB. I adjusted and uploaded.

Great! I was half expecting she would. One would probably not easily forget a live LV get together and recording session. 8-)

Not sure if you're doing gender specific but if not could I play the pirate captain, slave, and slave owner 2? (And if you'd rather I only do one role since it's so short that's fine too :D If I did do all of those I'd try to change my voice a bit so they sound different). Thanks! :)

Adele,
Thank you for your claims. I'll put you down for all of them. :thumbs:

I'll update the initial post to make it clear that this is a gender neutral project.
