The Forgery by George Payne Rainsford James (1799 - 1860).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-forgery-by-george-payne-rainsford-james/

Humphrey Scriven is a fine, genial, mercantile man, left widowed to raise three daughters and a son. Two of the daughters marry well although happiness is not enduring. The other defers her marriage, knowing her father disapproves of her choice. The son is a disappointment to his father -- his character is not as generous or kind. However, in time, this son inherits the business, with the exception of a portion left to a trusted clerk, Mr. Hayley. But there is a secret side to Mr. Hayley and maybe he is not quite the right man to guide the novice merchant. The two part ways acrimoniously and the clerk is driven to actions for which his son pays dearly.

    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!

PL for Chapter 1:

9:27 "Sir Henry Monkton" should be "Sir Edward Monkton" (end para 7)
9:47 "sister" should be "sisters" (para 8) as she has two sisters.
(9:54 There's an extra word between "unexceptionable" and "men": "young", I think, which could be left. Para 8)
10:12 "would be carried" seems much louder than the words before (para 8)
12:55 "intimacy" is a bit fuzzy and difficult to understand without the text.
13:11 "and what" read for "what between" - I wonder if this was a deliberate substitution, but the original makes sense.
(13:46 "half and hour" read for "an hour" - could be left)
15:53: two breaths taken between "....much." and "and it..."
20:47: "to one subject" read for "to one object" (final paragrpah)

There are a few slightly intrusive clicks:
44s between "the merchant." and "As a people..." (line 4)
17:13 before para 9
18:26 after "upon him." (para 10)

and a loud breath at 3:29 before "to weigh upon his mind" (end para 3)

Sorry if I'm too "picky"! Let me know.

PL for Chapter 2:

4:58 "appear" should be "appeared" (para 8, line 6)

7:40 - 43 repeat of "for though he had been a neglligent off-" (para 9)

8:29 the three breaths after "fretful", "Ascot" and "gambling table" each end in a quite loud sound (para 10)

11:13 a 'fuzzy click' between "feeling" and "than might have been" (last para).

Wow, that's a lot of mistakes... must have been having a bad day.
I'll check them out, but in general, breathing is OK (except creepy heavy breathing) -- listeners have commented they like the human touch.
Also, if an error doesn't change the meaning, or you wouldn't know without the text in front of you, don't worry about it.

(9:54 There's an extra word between "unexceptionable" and "men": "young", I think, which could be left. Para 8) - left as it would sound worse removing it
10:12 "would be carried" seems much louder than the words before (para 8) volume reduced slightly, but this was actually within my normal speaking range 8-)
12:55 "intimacy" is a bit fuzzy and difficult to understand without the text. fixed
13:11 "and what" read for "what between" - I wonder if this was a deliberate substitution, but the original makes sense. fixed
(13:46 "half and hour" read for "an hour" - could be left) left as it would sound worse removing it

15:53: two breaths taken between "....much." and "and it..." Could not hear the breaths, but reduced the pause, so hopefully not as obvious

20:47: "to one subject" read for "to one object" (final paragrpah)

There are a few slightly intrusive clicks:
44s between "the merchant." and "As a people..." (line 4) Could not hear the click, but reduced the pause, so hopefully not as obvious

Chapter 1 PL OK!
(20:47 is still "to one subject" rather than for "to one object", which changes the meaning a little, but if you've decided to leave it, that's fine. :) )

PL for Chapter 3:
6:21 "not" inserted into "for he could speak very nicely"
13:00 "Mr Harley" said for "My Hayley" (did nothing to restrain them.)
(14:25 bump before "And she left Maria to choose")
17:00 "in" inserted in "even his presence"
17:08 "have" said for "had" in "never before had been unsuccessful"
17:30 repeat of "with Mr Scriven"
(23:35-37 silence seems a little too long, but perhaps you meant that, before "and after long deliberation...")

I have never made this many mistakes in anything before :oops: DPLs generally comment on my accuracy. I think I'll just go back to bed.

Gill, I was wondering if you have taken Kathrine's quiz? It seems you are not following standard PL guidelines 8-) http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/ProofListening_tips_and_quiz

Unless a reader has asked for a more comprehensive process, I only mention changes where the meaning is affected, and only those extra noises that to me seem intrusive (particularly loud and/or distort some words), and silences that seem a little long. These are the PL guidelines as I read them.

I see the job of DPL as an aide to the reader. That's what I'm trying to do. If a reader disagrees with anything a PL/DPL mentions, as I understand the process, he/she can choose to leave it as is, with a note so that the PL/DPL knows not to mention it again in a Spot PL.

If you want to take me off as DPL, that's fine. Just let me know.

I do love the expression you put into your reading and the different characters come to life when they have direct speech. Sorry if I haven't commented on that before now. I often have limited time to do each section.
