Carolin, the request I made for updating the MW at Peter Simple made me seem like and insistent complainer, and I'm really not. My mistake on the time frame. I apologize for not being more patient.

Section 0, Biographical Notice, is PL ok.

Some notes for chapeters 1 and 2:

In the title of chapter 1 (about 0:54), the abbreviation "MS" means manuscript.
At 12:42, the text is "pricked-up ears and glistening eyes". You said "pricked up earn and glistening eyes".

There was a teensy little mess-up that got missed in chapter 2. It's right around 3:42, after "first week of that month." You'll know it when you hear it. :wink: Gave me a good laugh, though! :lol:

Also, in chapter 2, you ran into the same trap that got Sylvia! However, while she only read it once, it happened multiple times in your chapter! I'm referring to the name of the town, Ilitch on the Ilitch. It appears in all caps in the chapter title, which you read perfectly, ILITCH ON THE ILITCH, but when it appears in the chapter text, you read it as "Hitch on the Hitch". :roll: This happens at 5:24, 5:40, 8:14, 8:45, 12:44, and 13:40. If I had known this little name would cause so much trouble, I'd have just let Sylvia leave it be!

Last, I noticed (while checking for any more Hitches), that you skipped over the italicized word (golubtchika) on page 13, and just read its given translation, darling. I think we usually ask that readers at least take a stab at it when those kinds of things come up, rather than just leaving it out. Carolin, what do you think? Does he need to read it or leave it as is? It is at about 11:59.

Incidentally, Marcel, I was really rather impressed with all of the place names you did have to tackle in Chapter 2. They were well done!

28-31 PL ok.

At the ending of chapter 32, you'll need to add in "End of Chapter 32", as well as the author's name again:
At the end of the section, say:
  • "End of [Chapter]"
  • If you wish, say:
    "Recording by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
  • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
    "End of Baron Trump's Marvellous Underground Journey, by Ingersoll Lockwood. "

^^^^^^Emphasis added

Carolin

Thank you for checking on the German phrase. I can't believe I got it even close to right. :shock:

I appreciate you pointing out the closing on the final chapter. Stupidly, I didn't even think to look back at the instructions to see the right way to do the book end.

At the prompting of the DPL at the Peter Simple forum (after I submitted a load of chapters that were way too loud), I watched a couple Audacity tutorials on how to reduce the volume using replay gain, and I applied that new knowledge here because I saw that this also was too loud. Hope that's okay.

It would be great if that could be added. Just for completeness sake :) thank you so much :D
