AJW meint:
Dear all I am looking for audio books in "Oxford" English - after having worked for five years for american clients, its time to get rid of my "down south" accent. Could you recommend some books with really british english speaking readers?

Thanks a lot in advance

AJ

Do you mean native speakers?
Stephen Fry reads the Harry Potter books, but I do not know if you like Harry.
Best wishes

Try to get hold of the Roald Dahl audio books by Harper Audio, great fun even for adults and lovably made+ they have the real British english accent.

Migraith meint:
Not quite sure how "Oxford" the following entry is, but since the three audiobooks are BBC productions you might want to give the BBC "cover to cover" edition of Pullman's "His Dark Materials" a chance. Read by the author and a BBC full cast, unabridged. You can find mp3 audio samples on the website of the American publishing house "Random House", though you'll have to dig a bit to find them. http://www.randomhouse.com/audio/listeninglibrary/

PS: As of now (31st of May) I got hold of one of the mentioned audiobooks, namely part II "the subtle knife". Sounds definitely genuine British to me, though not necessarily every reader boosts the purest Oxford pronounciation possible.

RK Hawkins meint:
Hey AJ,

Just pick up audiobooks by British writers--then you'll definitely get a Brit reading the book. And if you're really shooting for the more traditional accent, check out some classics on audio. Dickens, the Brontes, du Maurier, Maugham, etc. There's lots of stuff. And anything you can't find on CD is usually available for digital download on audible.com

Hope that helps. R

P.S. Alvin, please stop pushing your books in every thread. This is about British audiobooks, not about American crime stories in print. Okay? No offense, but it's a bit lame to try to foist your books on people.

T. Buchholz meint:
I listened to audiobooks of "Richard Dawkins - The God Delusion" read by himself and his wife, "Douglas Adams - Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy" in the BBC radio drama version, "W. E. Johns - Biggles Flies North" read by Michael Palin, "Roald Dahl - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" read by Eric Idle.
These bookls quite helped me quite a lot with my British accent I think and also they cover quite interesting topics.

Hi AJW, I had some fun listening to "A Long Way Down" (Nick Hornby) published by Penguin Audiobooks, read by Morwenna Banks, Walter Lewis (not British), Neil Pearson and Sophie Thomson. Even if you are not a Hornby fanatic or you've read the book, their performance won't disappoint you. Best wishes tramp

Hello AJW,
if I were you I wouldn't spend money on this "project" - there is the huge and excellent resource for BE drama and comedy, and factual features for that matter, that is the BBC: all their programmes are available FREE as podcasts for seven days after airing and often longer. I would recommend BBC4 and BBC7 in particular, and more specifically BBC4s Afternoon Plays and Classic Serials.
Have fun!

schungo meint:
Try the Paul Temple Series produced by the BBC. They were originally broadcasted from the late 30s to the 60s when the BBC was kind of a standard for Oxford English. In these Radio plays the part time detective Paul Temple and his wife Steve hunt for murderers in the streets of London (and several other places) in a wonderful 50s setting - with cocktails, butlers and High-Tea.

I can also recommend The Hobbit, the above mentioned Hitchhikers Guide and if you like this kind of humor Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency - all in BBC Radio Drama Version.

You can't go wrong with most of the BBC productions, they are all well produced, excellent speakers with clear pronounciation in best "Oxford English" - Very British, indeed!

or try "Under Milkwood" with a new cast from 1993 featuring Anthony Hopkins instead of Richard Burton (they sound eerily alike coming from the same town). I prefer the new version. No 50's crackling and some nice songs sung by Bonnie Tyler, Tom Jones, and a wonderful hymn sung by a Welsh opera singer.

Best wishes

Hi AJ
You might try Peter Ustinov "Dear Me" and Ustinov at 80" and David Niven "The Moon is a baloon" and "Bring on the empty horses" The two actors read the self and are pretty Britisch.

If you don't mind the slightly old-fashioned language, the Jane Austen audiobooks by Penguin are all read by British actors with RP accents.

A. Märten meint:
Stephen Fry has been mentioned before. Hes one of the most talented narrators Ive ever listened to. As far as I know he was educated in Cambridge. And indeed, the Harry Potter books are a really neat production. Especially from part three on, it becomes really sophisticated. Although after one book I always needed something a bit time w more... well, linguistically different than J.K. Rowling.
So I listened to books Stephen wrote himself. "The Stars Tennisballs" and "The Hippopotamus". I can wholeheartedly recommend the former.
Ive also listened to the audiobook version of the "Hitchhikers Guide" read by the author himself.
The most entertaining BE audiobook Ive experienced was "Portugese Irregular Verbs" read by Hugh Laurie. He has read several books and I love them ALL to pieces!
