In search of the castaways


to me
Hello,
I wanted to let you know that chapter 49 of the book is incomplete (the last half roughly is missing). I'm listening to the podcast of the book, but I can see that the file on your site is of the exact same length (8 min 18 sec), so it must have the same problem.
Other than that, thanks for the work you're doing!

Verified that section 49 (Book 3, Chapter 4) is missing half the chapter. There's an end-of-chapter statement, but the reader didn't read the whole chapter. The reader hasn't been on the forum since 2011, so we'll need somebody to either record the second half or just redo the whole chapter. (Though it's been 10 years before anybody said anything, so I suppose the world won't end if we never fix it.)

I wouldn't mind recording it.

Thanks for the offer! Kristine (original BC) has also said she'd record it (I asked by PM), so I'll let the two of you arm-wrestle over it. :)

PL OK! (Except that you said "please contact librivox.org" instead of "visit", but I don't think that makes any difference really).
I really like your voice!

Thanks, Kikisaulite; I'm sorry about the intro, it's long, long habit that dictated!
