from the help desk

I downloaded the mp3 files from:

https://librivox.org/scenes-de-la-vie-privee-tome-2-by-honore-de-balzac-1001/

If you click section 63 you will hear the same as the download.

La Comédie Humaine: 02 - Scènes de la vie privée tome 2 (3-9-42)

Section:

63 - Une fille d'Eve 5/14

This section ends with

"...comme un Alceste en agissant comme Philinte."
(There is no usual announcement of "Fin de la ...ième section.)

Section 64 begins with:

"—Prenez garde, ma chère..."

There is a large section (about 1300 words) which is not in the recording beginning with:

"Son égoïsme trotte à couvert de cette armure en carton peint..."

ending with:

"...il était donc trop à toutes les femmes pour être à une seule."

I am to so grateful to be able to listen to these recordings - it is truly an amazing accomplishment! I thought it would be helpful for others listening if I mentioned this omission.

This has been pinned and waiting for a reader for over 3 years? Would you like me to read this passage and insert it into the mp3 for you?

I gave it a try, and decided that I need a bit more practice reading French prose before I would dare to insert my take into this impressive solo project. I'm now expecting to get it done within 2-3 weeks. However, if one of our accomplished Francophone readers would like to step in instead, I wouldn't mind at all. :)

Here it is:

https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/scenesdelavieprivee2_63_balzac_complete.mp3
Length: 28:42. My addition starts at 18:10.

As I mentioned, this is my first attempt at reading French prose, so I would recommend a close round of PL and appreciate any mispronunciation notes.
