The Ordeal of Richard Feverel by George Meredith (1828 - 1909).

After his wife's desertion, sir Austin wants to bring up his son according to a strict educational sistam governing every aspect of his life. However Richard has to make his own mistakes, fall in love, and generaly live his own life. This book tells about the clashes between Richard's wish to govern his own life to his father's constant interfearence. This book was very influencial. The leading libraries of the day considered it too frank and sexualy explisit and refused to buy it. Later authors including E. M. Forster, Oscar Wild and Virginia Woolf admired and respected it. ( Stav Nisser and Wikipedia )
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/4412
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

Thanks for doing this! I'd like to claim chapter 42 (Nature Speaks), which I think corresponds to section 42.

Stav.
You can take as long as you need. There is no rush at all. If you do need any assistance, just ask.
