An African Millionaire: Episodes in the Life of the Illustrious Colonel Clay
https://librivox.org/an-african-millionaire-episodes-in-the-life-of-the-illustrious-colonel-clay-by-grant-allen/

Chapters seven through twelve (the second half of the book) do not download when using the Libivox app on my Samsung.

The first six chapters download with no problem, sound perfect, and are complete.

I've experienced no similar problems in downloading other Librivox titles.

Beginning in November 2020, I've tried several times to download An african Millionaire in its entirety, most recently this evening.

Sadly, still no luck.

Thanks for looking into this.

They work on our website, so the links are all OK.

Since we do not have any formal relationship with the app developer (other than that they used our name and use our files), we can't advise you. It's best to contact the app developer. :)

Oh, wait - chapter 7 does have a bad link. Let me fix that one.

EDIT: Chapter 7 should be fixed!

Thank you. I managed a work around of sorts by downloading chapters 8 through twelve individually. Seven remains a problem, however - at least when using the app. The message I receive is "Download failed. Unable to contact server."

Well, the chapter 7 links are working now, so perhaps the app needs to update the record. :?

I'm not sure how the app works, but you can download 7 individually from our site.

Thanks, I'll do that.

Wonderful novel by the way. Recommended! And by an author born and raised (mostly) in Ontario!
