Hello! Lovely reading! :9: I have a couple of PL notes; one is about the intro at the beginning, it's missing the part that says "The Secret City, by Hugh Walpole. Chapter 8" , just after the disclaimer. The second is a repetition of "He stood there in the dusk of the little hall looking as resolute and unconcerned as an Englishman, in a strange and uncertain world, is expected to look." at around 15:41 and 15:49.
By the way, about file-naming, most projects go for two digits ## (some even for three ###, if there are more than 100 sections). When you upload your updated recording, use this filename secretcity_08_walpole_128kb.mp3 :wink:

PS: No background noise this time! :thumbs:

Interesting chapter! Where it all began! Thank you, Natalie! Very nicely read!

There's a phrase missing from the recording at 1:59, it looks like a line in the text was skipped, here in bold:
"but it was not until, sore and sick at heart, lonely and bitter against fate, haunted always by the face and laughter of one whom I would never see again, I wandered about the canals and quays and deserted byways of the city that I began to understand its spirit. "

then later at 2:34, missing text in bold:
"catching into its frosted heart every colour of the sky and air, the lights of the town, the lamps of imprisoned barges, the moon, the sun, the stars, the purple sunsets, and the strange, mysterious lights that flash from the shadows of the hovering snow-clouds."
