Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Good job I asked. I really couldn't get away with mispronouncing him throughout! I think I was assuming that it would be like the silent S in Camus.

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

The three offending passages are now edited out. It's ironic that the third was: "Yes, I made a mistake on purpose" but I didn't do them on purpose, honest! Now uploaded at http://ge.tt/8QAFXjL/v/0 46.20 mins. If I'm making any egregious errors in pronouncing French names or places feel free to tell...

Bloopers

I'm really excited to be the first person to post a blooper here. When librarians are writing dissertations on the history of Legamus I may get a mention. Woo hoo! Anyway, here it is: http://ge.tt/9HGMmrI/v/0?c It's 1 minute 23 seconds. I'm reading a very long sentence of Proust and I think I did a ...

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

It is 44.7MB and 48.55 mins long and contains one of my two favourite descriptions of being drunk - the other being in Kingsley Amis' "Lucky Jim". I have a blooper fo...

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Thank you for doing that - hope it works now.
On the subject of the split between volumes, I've checked a few other translations and they don't divide there so I'm not going to divide there either.

Re: Eng[Solo] Within a Budding Grove by Proust - hok

Thank you for proofreading that Martin and for the kind comment about my acting. There are certain themes in Remembrance to which I can relate a bit too well, although mercifully most are in the past! Since I'm getting close to the end of Volume 1 of Within a Budding Grove I was wondering whether I ...
