Oooh, I that you did change your voice up between the characters, even if you weren't exactly happy with it.
I was amazed here how you were able to say "government" in so many tones. The emphasis really showed how Pap was very irritated and showed some sarcasm.
One of the big things that Twain does in his writing is dialect, and you definitely get that in this reading. I feel like this is how we are supposed to hear it in our heads.
What I love most about this sound cloud of yours is how animated your voice is and how you change it to match the character. It's very entertaining to listen too, and draws me in to pay attention to what you are saying!
What amazes me most is how completely different you sound in comparison to your previous lectures that we have heard. I also enjoy your use of different tones and pitches to signify the different characters.
Great enthusiasm and personality given here to the character whom is speaking!
I really enjoy how you speed up during serious frustration, just as someone (such as Huck's pap) would do while ranting.
I like that throughout this whole tirade, you make "government" sound so forceful. It really highlights how disgusted with government he really is and grabs your attention.
At the climax of his tirade, Pap is made completely ridiculous again.
Clemens wants to make sure his readers are shocked...
If you're offended, well, that's the point. Pap goes from being comic to monstrous.
Here, Clemens is making sure we see Pap as ridiculous.
Whoops. I had to cough.
This version of Huck sounds more boyish.
Whoops, I should have given Huck a higher pitched voice -- he sounds too gruff.
