French audiobooks

Does anyone know any websites where you can download (or just listen to) some french audiobooks for free? I'm leaning towards the classical literature (The Count of Monte Cristo etc) but anything would be great actually, just to catch the rhythm.

I was listening to Le Comte de Monte-Cristo here:

Serge Dewulf has an absolutely beautiful voice. There is also a transcript (in French) that you can read while listening.

Here is the site's main page with index:

It's two below yours in the French forum.

It links to a blog post that is publicising the following five titles produced by LibriVox.org:

  1. Madame Bovary

  2. Les Miserables

  3. The Count of Monte Cristo <-

  4. Father Goriot

  5. Candide

Yeah, looking at that post now, it seems a bit weird that they created it.

Anyway, LibriVox does have French audio books as well.

For example:

Note though that the voicing on LibriVox is performed by amateurs - so set your expectations accordingly.
