* You have omitted many of the various poetry quotes - those at the chapter beginning (~0.36 x 2, ~ 1.02 and Arnold ~ 13.34 . Quotes are something the author chose to include to make his points - they are to be read.
* Your final silence is too short - a full 5 secs is required here.
Around ~ 4.00 and going forward there is some excessive mike noise or distortion. But the most significant issue is the many loud plosives (eg, 5.37, 8.03, 8.05, 8.14, 8.15, 8.54, 9.01 but many many others), which detract from the otherwise lovely reading.
Now, the 1 minute test is intended to pick up those early (among other issues) but they weren't in your original test, whereas they are almost everywhere here. What has changed? Can you return to the much better quality of your test recording? You may, for example, find experimenting with a different position of the mike and/or a P filter will avoid this in your future recordings? I had a bad problem with them myself, but altering mike position as well as a P filter has fixed it.
I will definitely re-record the entire file. The plosives issues appeared when I started recording in another room. I tried to fix the issue with Audacity, but I suppose it didn’t work this time around. As for the omitted passages, I wasn’t sure whether to read them or not, and I made the wrong choice (silly me ).
