Excellent acting, Jenn! You really bring Felicity to life in all her glory! :clap:

Chapters 10-14 are PL OK!

In Chapter 15, could you please add "getting fatter than ever."at around 02:08 (p. 5)

Felicity had told him at tea that night he was "getting fatter than ever."

I think it will be cuter to have this in your voice. :D

Thanks,
TJ

Greetings from Germany. :)
Thanks, Bernd!

Father is PL OK! Nice reading. Too bad it was so short -- I would have liked to hear more from Father. (Maybe in the sequel :D ).

She is a fun character -- and I can tell you are having fun with her. Chapter 15 is PL OK.

Thanks,
TJ

Sorry, Adrian. We'll have to make sure we get you a larger part in the sequel. :D

Thanks!

I am so sorry! I didn't realize I skipped Aunt Olivia's Chapter 23! Here she is!

Excellent reading (and laughing), Kristin! Aunt Olivia, Chapter 23, is PL OK.

That's a wrap for Aunt Olivia. Nicely done. :clap:

Thanks,
TJ

Here are chapters 16-20 of Felicity!
In Chapter 16, at about 1:30, could I please get you to shriek with the other children when the cat jumps down out of the tree (page 6, about half way down the page)?

And at the end of your file could you please add the line: "a saucerful apiece of raspberries and cream would not be hard to take."

Felicity suggested that a saucerful apiece of raspberries and cream would not be hard to take.
(second to last paragraph in the chapter).


Chapter 19

00:52

The text reads:
"If I had known that to-morrow might be the Judgment Day I wouldn't have quarrelled with you last Monday, Sara Stanley, or been so horrid and sulky all the week. Indeed I wouldn't,"

You added an extra word "night" and left out the word "the":

"If I had known that to-morrow (night) might be the Judgment Day I wouldn't have quarrelled with you last Monday, Sara Stanley, or been so horrid and sulky all the week. Indeed I wouldn't,"

I'm not sure how important this is, so I'll leave it up to you whether or not you want to revise it. The end of the world is supposed to come at 2pm, so "night" isn't actually fitting in this context, but I don't think our listeners would notice.


Chapters 17, 18, & 20 are PL OK! :clap:

Thanks, Jenn!

Here's more of Peter. Hopefully some of the grunts in ch 27 are useful :lol:
Chapters 24 & 25 are PL OK! Nicely done (great "yelp of pure terror"!) :clap:


Chapter 26:
00:26
"They're good things." -- could you please read this line again? The "are" seems to have faded and that makes the sentence sound unclear to me. You can do it in a separate file if you like, or tack it on the end of the next file you submit.

Great sermons!


Chapter 27 is also PL OK! Nice grunting! I will definitely be able to use those! :lol:

Thanks, Julian!

Here are Chapters 16 and 19 ready for spot PL. I did decide it would be worth it to correct the line I misread in Chapter 19 :)
