Max by Katherine Cecil Thurston (1875 - 1911).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/max-by-katherine-cecil-thurston/
On a trans-continental train journey into Paris, Max, a young adventurer determined to make his way as an artist, meets Blake, a well-to-do Irishman. Blake helps Max set up a studio in Montmartre and they enjoy the life of Paris and each other's company. However, things are definitely not what they seem and the book takes a very contemporary turn as another person appears on the scene.
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/14054
  • 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!

Will set up MW shortly.

Edit: I've taken the liberty to list myself as the DPL. If you have another in mind just let me know as it's easy to change. When you complete the book summary post a comment so I can change the version on the Project Detail page that is used for cataloguing. And finally, if anything in the MW needs fixing let me know.

Please excuse my poor French accent . . .

Can't see where the story is going at the moment. Good descriptions of Paris.
