The Young Diana by Marie Corelli (1855 - 1924).


Poor Diana May. Her fiancé has jilted her, her parents think she is an encumbrance and no one recognises her intelligence. She seems destined to remain unloved, unappreciated and unpaid - until she decides to take control of her life. It all begins with an advertisement for an assistant to an eccentric scientist with a hidden laboratory in Switzerland... ( Newgatenovelist)
This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-young-diana-by-marie-corelli/
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/cihm_76560
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    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!

It is all set up now, Erin. I look forward to listening! It is a favorite of mine. :9:

I know! I can't believe it hadn't been done already. I hope I can do it justice.

The first chapter is up:

It sounds wonderful, Erin! I am drawn in already. I can't wait for her to take charge. Chapter One is PL OK.

Hi Erin,
Chapter Two is PL OK. This has to be the best ad ever. It is completely intriguing. If she had never written anything else, she could rest on her laurels with this alone imho.
I just love it!

Thanks for the PL! I love having a listener who knows this book and has read other Corelli. It feels like a mini fan club.

The advert is brilliant. If I had read an advert like that from someone called Feodor Dmitrius I would have run in the opposite direction - it's so weird!

I am definitely a fan. Right now I have Thelma and Vendetta on my Kindle.

I hope you enjoy them!

I'm going to be pretty slow with chapter 3 - the next week and a bit isn't going to leave much time for recording, but I'll pick up Diana's adventures soon.

Diana's adventures continue! I realise you're probably swamped with other projects for the 10,000th project/11th anniversary, so there's no rush on this. There's no way I'll be done in time, so just PL whenever it suits you.

I love this story! It is wonderful to hear it in such a beautiful British accent.
Chapter 3 is PL OK. :thumbs:

Isn't she marvellous? I'm so happy to be doing this book.

Chapter 4 is ready for PL - but as before, and especially as the 10th anniversary draws closer, don't rush. Like Feodor Dmitrius, this project has to await the appointed time for its fulfilment...
