thing 22

Amazing. Project Guttenberg is great, I loved the selection of stories.......but...two things!

1. The computer read stories haven't progressed past HAL! One has trouble listening.

2. I did listen to Edgar Rice Burroughs A PRINCESS OF MARS! Now, ERB was from the good old US of A, Chicago to be exact...then he founded his own town in the LA Area, Tarzana...but the book, about a Virginia Gentleman who goes to Barsoom (Mars to the uninitiated)...well John Carter should have a Southern Accent...what do we have reading the book? A fellow with a Brit accent with Germanic all loses something in the translation!
