solo (ENGLISH) Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell - vik

Post by unreadpages »

size=150]Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell (*1903- † 1950)[**TRANSLATORTXT**][/size]
Depiction of a dystopian society in the future in which manipulative social control is exercised on a gullible population. The novel includes a blighted love story. Although it may be seen in a political light, it may also be seen as a comment on the essential human condition.

For chapter 1, one PL note - please add tags. And when you re-upload please copy the new url - it doesn't just overwrite the old file as happens on LV.

Two pronunciation notes for future reference:
https://www.lexico.com/definition/senile
https://www.lexico.com/definition/clandestinely

Can you access the MW? I can log in with the password Viktor sent, but let me know if it's not working for you.

That's all procedural, but I wanted to say again how happy I am that you're doing this book.

Oh yes, the tags. Drat! Forgot to put them in. They're not in Sect 2 either, I'd better put them in before you PL.
Sorry.

No worries about the tags. Your readings are usually pretty accurate, so it's just about the only PL notes I can do!

Section 1 is spot PL OK. Section 3 is PL OK.

I've marked section 2 PL OK because it's fine as it is, but there is one possible alteration you may (or may not) want to make: as this is under 30 minutes, you can use 5 seconds of silence at the end if you want – the 10 seconds are for files of 30 minutes and over. If you can’t be asked that’s fine as well. It’s not a critical change!

Will look to reducing end silence of Sect 2 in due course.
