The Old Curiosity Shop - Chapter 7

Another chapter for your ears. Back to Dick Swiveller (whose voice is much easier to do), and Frederick Trent, the dastards!

The Old Curiosity Shop - Chapter 6

Here's the next one. The sound quality when I'm doing Quilp is a little off, I'll try to avoid that in future (although I don't think he appears in the next chapter).

Chapters like this are a lot more fun than those just involving Little Nell and her grandfather, partly because of the range of voices, but also because the action demands changes in pace, and stops me hurrying ahead, as I think I tend to in the 'less exciting' chapters.

The Old Curiosity Shop - Chapter 5

Another fun one, but hurried in places. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa...

I do like doing Quilp!

The Old Curiosity Shop - Chapter 3

This one's a lot better, although quite rushed in parts. You can tell the voices I don't like doing so much, because it sounds as if they're hurrying to get out of the scene.

But still much better than the last one...

The Old Curiosity Shop - Chapter 1, Part 2

Here's the second, and by far the better half of Chapter 1. Chapter 1 is the longest by far in the book, and it's been quite an effort to get it done (and to squish it into small enough pieces for Odeo to accept).

However, I'm giving it to you now (rather than saving it) because it's where the story really starts. Where is Nell's grandfather going in the middle of the night? Why does he treat Nell so badly? Why do all of my voices sound very similar?

The answers to some of these questions will become apparent later on...

This is one to snuggle up in bed with. Again, not as hilarious as some of the other bits, but a good scene-setter...

(Don't forget to get part one of chapter one below, if you haven't already!)

The Old Curiosity Shop - Chapter 1, Part 1

This one ended up being so long that Odeo wouldn't eat it unless it broke it in half, so you get two today for the price of one.

This half is not so good, until the narrative starts (about two minutes in) I sort of rushed everything. Sorry about that.

The Old Curiosity Shop - Dedication and Prefaces

This is the dedication and the prefaces to The Old Curiosity Shop, done, more than anything, to find out how difficult this project will be. It's certainly going to be more difficult to deal with some of the sentence-lengths than I had anticipated (and as you may hear here). Still, here it is, the very first one...
