https://librivox.org/uploads/leni/talesfromariosto_01_nicholson_128kb.mp3
Very nicely read and good to listen to. Thanks for reading, I enjoyed it.

There's just one tiny thing only:
~ 14.44 text is "...convey him to her father..." but I hear their father

Hi Wilkie
Lovely reading, I really enjoyed listening to it, so thank you. And what an interesting tale.
But I am going to have to ask you to remove all the Open Quote and Close Quotes you have for some reason used at the beginning and end of all the direct speech.
They are quite unnecessary, you see, as the text makes it quite clear who is speaking, plus we do just do not insert Open Quote and Close Quote for direct speech.
Where we do use these quite often is to clarify for a listener that some text is a quote from someone else (not the writer). For example, on another project I am PL-ing, this text appears:

...We know of toxins of such strength that an amount too infinitesimal to be gauged may kill; and we know that "the unit adopted in certain scientific work is the amount of emanation produced by one million-millionth of a grain of radium, a quantity which itself has a volume of less than a million-millionth of a cubic millimetre and weighs a million million times less than an exceptionally delicate chemical balance will turn to" (Soddy, 1912).
You can see the text toward the end of the 3rd paragraph of the Inteoduction here, if you wish http://www.gutenberg.org/files/1566/1566-h/1566-h.htm

The writer, William Osler, uses the quote marks to delineate a direct quote from Soddy, and as a reader I would definitely insert Open quote and Close quote where the inverted commas appear, and as a PL, would expect them to be used, because otherwise it might easily confuse a listener.
But not for direct speech.
I am sorry to ask it of you, because there are quite a lot of them, and otherwise your reading is flawless, for which hearty congratulations and the heartfelt thanks of this PL.
regards
Jane Bennett
