SOLO The Book of All Power by Edgar Wallace (1875 - 1932).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-book-of-all-power-by-edgar-wallace/
The Book of All Power by Edgar Wallace is set in London at the beginning, and then the action moves to Russia. The story covers the period from 1910 to 1919 during which the Russian Revolution takes place and this results in drastic changes to Russian society.

This book could be described as a romantic adventure story and the main characters are a weird assortment - Malcolm Hay, a young Englishman, a beautiful Grand Duchess of the Russian Aristocracy, a Russian general, a Jewish bookbinder, and an American sharp shooter.

Much happens, and the Russian characters, heavily influenced by their religion and politics, provide a fascinating insight into the mind of the Russian people, aristocrats and peasants, and all those in between. (Peter Thomlinson)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/files/24920/24920-h/24920-h.htm
  • 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!

Yes. Often PLers wait until a chapter is posted.

I'm afraid I have made an error with file naming on the first two chapters, missing out an underscore before "128kb"

Should I re-submit both files for Chapter 1 & 2 ? (With corrected underscores).

Sorry about that, it's my terrible eyesight.

No worries! It would probably be best if you resubmitted them with the underscores :)
