Baboo Jabberjee, B.A, by F. Anstey (1856 - 1934 ) .

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/baboo-jabberjee-ba-by-f-anstey/
Another delightful example of an English writer poking fun at his countrymen, or maybe all races reactions to someone from a diferent background.
A series of adventures of a well educated foreigner in London which originally appeared weekly in the Punch , sometimes with illustrations, dealing with the difficulties of fully understanding a different culture.
The hero's perfect English reminds one of a quote from "My Fair Lady" -
His English is too good he said , that clearly indicates that he is Foreign
Wheras other people are instructed in their native language English people are'n

(Summary by Annise)
  1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here
    To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you'd like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording?
    Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline?
    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.
    Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/25129
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)!
    If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.


    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

:oops: I seem to have missed a pile of claims - I have had real life issues but I thought I was keeping up - I'll give every one what they have claimed - just let me know if it is too late for you
