Hello everyone!

I've decided to give the Listening-Reading technique a try.

I used it for the first Harry Potter book and really enjoyed it because the reader was brilliant. However, when I listened to the other audiobooks from the Harry Potter series, the readers were terrible.

I've been looking for some other Spanish audiobooks, and I was hoping someone on here might be able to recommend a few to me. I'll read anything so long as the reader is good.

Thank you in advance :),
xx

There's lots of good stuff here.

http://www.leerescuchando.net/audiobks.php

All free and nothing that would violate copyright. The books are read by the users and then published on the website for listening directly or downloading.

Many of the texts can be found using google.

Some of the ones that I've enjoyed:

Clemencia

Despu├ęs del Almuerzo

El Hijo

El Potro Salvaje

La Isla Desierta

El Gato Negro

I really like the reader of Cien anos de soledad.
I might be wrong here, but I think Cela himself reads his "la familia de Pascual Duarte'. It's read in low voice with very nice resonance.

I remember someone telling me that some versions of Don Kichote are read well.
Unfortunately from all the audiobooks I've listened to, the two above are the only ones I can recommend based on the reader solely.

I've purchased these from Audible

La Breve y Maravillosa Vida de Oscar Wao.
Oscar Wao
En el Tiempo de las Mariposas En el Tiempo...
Cruzando la Frontera Cruzando...
Negocios Negocios
El Bufalo de la Noche El Bufalo..
La Travesia de Enrique Enrique

The nice thing about Audible is you can sample the audio to see if you like the narrator's voice and style.

They also have membership specials which lower the cost per book dramatically.

Good Luck
